Thread: Strange iphone problem

    Default Strange iphone problem

    I have known about this forum for quite a while but not really posted on it.

    I have now however got a problem that is really frustrating me and i cant seem to fix it so looking for some of your bright ideas :-)

    I have an iphone 3g and last week i was at a large outdoor event where my phone was working wonderfully until i put it on charge, and when i came back to it, it was showing the glowing apple logo, thinking this was a bit strange i left it assuming it was just rebooting but when i came back to it an hour later and it was still glowing.

    I was then worrying a little so unplugged it and hard rebooted it and left it because i was working at the event.

    I then came back to it that evening to try and make it work so switched it on and the logo came back up, it then reboots over and over again. So i though it was in a reboot cycle so restored it and it worked, i thought i had sorted it.

    But i have now put it on 3.1.2 and it will turn on for a short time but then crash and go back into the cycle.

    Not being defeated i jailbroke it to enable verbose boot, so when it hangs on boot it comes up with:

    Still waiting for root device

    I have tried many different firmwares and i cant find anything that will fix it or any documentation on how to fix similar problems.

    Please could you help me!!

    Thank you very much.

    I have seen one or two iphones exhibit this behaviour, even after a restore. I think it may be a hardware issue.

    Does anyone have any solutions to this, it seems to be crashing with resetcounter now, very strange.

    When you restored it, did you restore from back up? If you did, restore it again and set the phone up as new. If it still continues to experience this problem, it's likely hardware.
