    Default iPhone 3GS ~ Boot problems
    Hi guys,

    I've fixed many iPhones, but this one I have never seen before.
    Hope you can help me..


    It's about an iPhone 3GS (Old-bootrom) with firmware 4.2.1.
    Yesterday the battery was like 50%, then it crashed.
    Couldn't do anything.. so like always I did the usual reset; Home + Power.
    That went without a problem, trying to restart in the Apple boot-fase it got stuck.
    Within the Apple logo begun a transparant loading cirkel keep cirkeling (loading).
    I tought it may needs a little more time so I went to sleep..
    When I got awake it was still loading.

    In the morning I put it in DFU with TinyUmbrella, iTunes recognized the phone
    and I made an recovery to 4.3.5. Recovery went well, it finished.. trying to restart..
    and yes, again loading on the same spot. It doesn't come out the Apple boot-fase.

    I hope there is an solution for this.

    Let the battery completely drain then try restoring again.

    I mean completely drained. Like you dont even get the battery symbol on the phone anymore. It can take a day or two for that.

    Ok, I will let the phone on for couple a days.
    After it goes off, I put it on the charger and do the recovery again right?
