Thread: Someone please help me , I am new

    Default Someone please help me , I am new
    I am new here ,I did a search but do not really know what I am searching for.To start out I have been reading about jailbrake and unlocking the iphone.Yesterday I thought I was ready.I downloaded Liberty and went to work.Unfortunately I lost battery power on the laptop in the middle.All I have now on the iphone is a black page with thousands of white letters scrolling up the screen stating something about "BSD root".I am not very computer literate and do not know where to go from here.I can get the phone to power off sometimes but it comes back on and does the same thing.None of the buttons seem to be operating.Where do I go from here? Any help is appreciated.

    you need to put it in recovery mode to restore and do it again... Press en hold the power and home buttons at the same time when the screen go's black. keep holding the home button and connect to the computer or to the power and keep holding the home. the apple logo will show but keep holding the home button then the apple logo will swish to the connect to Itunes logo. the restore normal in itunes and use liberty+ to hack. Make sure you do not stop the proses in the middle because it could damage your phone really bad.

    Use Ziphone and go to advanced features and normal mode...You may have to put it in DFU mode and restore with iTunes.

    Which way did you try DFU or Recovery mode?

    Default Got it
    I tried it again,this time it went directly to reloading and was successful.I used Itunes recovery I think,I am not sure what DFU is.I then used Liberty which took only a few minutes and all is good.I must have done something wrong yesterday and/or today.I appreciate all the help.One last question.Will a Tmobile sim with data plan be able to use the internet without a wifi connection?
