Thread: Jailbroken Iphone4 - sudden problems - HELP!

    Question Jailbroken Iphone4 - sudden problems - HELP!
    Hi All - 1st post so please be gentle if my solution is obvious to those more experienced than me! :-)

    I have an iphone 4, jailbroken with greenpoison (i think). I've been using it without any problems for months and all of a sudden i'm experiencing the following issues:

    when transferring videos/music to the iphone via itunes i get an unknown error (-20) - which is preventing me from adding anything to my iphone at all. I have tried an alternative program (IMTOO iphone transfer) which has allowed me to delete a few files but again it won;t add anything on to it...

    Earlier today I tried exporting some photos via image capture and i can't even do that now - error message advising me (very unhelpfully) that the task did not complete.

    These issues came up a few weeks back and i was able to solve the problem by using ifunbox on my pc to access the raw file system and delete the itunesdb list - however this meant having to reload all my music and video back on which I don;t really want to have to do every couple of weeks, neither do i want to have to keep using my pc unless i really have to (currently using mac).

    I'm using itunes 10.2 and it recognises my phone but gives the following message part way through transferring files:

    "attempting to copy to the disk failed. an error ocurred while writing to the device" - this is followed by the unknown error (-20) message.

    Is this a known problem? Am I able to re-jailbreak without losing everything on my phone? Is it possible my iphone as somehow gone into 'read only' mode?

    Any advice would be massively appreciated..

    Thanks

    Did you try doing all this on a different pc?!?
    Try that once...
    If nothing else works restore the phone .. [well that's the last resort]

    If I do a restore, what version of itunes will I need and which version of the OS should I go back to in order to jailbreak again. Current setup:

    4.2.1 (8C148)
    Model MC605B
    Modem Firmware 03.10.01
    Jailbroken with greenpo1son originally
