Thread: Stuck at apple logo

    Default Stuck at apple logo
    Hello people

    I bought a 3gs from a guy last night, it is(was) jailbroken and unlocked 3.1.2. Since i had never used an iphone before, i didn't know much about those 2 things.

    After having some fun time with the phone, i decided to erase all data in it.. Well you can guess the next part, i got stuck in the apple logo screen.

    I've been searching for a solution for this for the past 5 hours, still no luck. I know i need to have SHSH files, and i get 2 of them when i use tinyumbrella to check cydia with the ECID thing; one is 4.1(8b117), and the other one is 4.2b3(8c5115c). And i wonder, how can a 3.1.2 firmwared phone can have 4.1 firmwared files and not have 3.1.2 ones. Clearly there's something i'm missing..

    Now i got some questions; anything i can do with those SHSH files? If not, what should i do? What happens if i just try to restore from itunes and update the firmware to 4.1? Would my iphone be an ipod touch forever?

    I REALLY would appreciate any help, i'm very desperate.

    Thanks.

    You can restore to a custom firmware created by Pwnage tools 4.1.2. If you don't have a mac, then you use Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 to put you into DFU mode and then shift + restore to custom 4.1 ipsw. You can still unlock it.

    Make sure you update your itunes to the latest.
