Thread: iPhone 4 1.59BB stuck on black screen (DFU mode)

    Default iPhone 4 1.59BB stuck on black screen (DFU mode)
    Ok so before this I had the 4.2.1 custom FW. I used Pwnage 4.3.3 and custom FW 4.3.3 that I created from PWnage tool. Everything went fine until at the very end where my iPhone 4 is stuck in DFU mode (black screen). I went to Tiny umbrella and clicked on fix recovery but it didnt do anything. I need your help please!

    Did the iTunes restore end with an error? If so, what code or error message did it display? In System Profiler (OS X) or Device Manager/USB (Windows), do you see your iPhone connected in regular mode, recovery, or DFU?

    A restore log (look for it in %AppData%\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Updater Logs for Windows, ~/Library/Logs/iPhone Updater Logs on OS X) from the errant restore will also help us get to the bottom of this.

    No I did not had any errors after doing the option+restore with iTunes. It restored successfully with custom FW 4.3.3 although I did fixed the problem!

    I opened up redsnowrc15 and did the "just tethered and reboot" and it worked!

    Oh, okay. That works too, apparently.

    This is nice but it sucks coz now I have tethered jailbreak. Is there an unthetered JB for 4.3.3?

    So I used rc16 and clicked on install cydia. It did the jailbreak process but again its stucked on the black screen (DFU mode). If I clicked on the "just tethered and boot"- this seems to get my phone out of the black scren (DFU mode). WTF?

    Some people have said that using the Fix Recovery option on TU doesn't really work as good as the stand alone one. Personally I have had better progress myself just downloading the Fix Recovery program by itself then using the one on TU.
