Thread: Bricked My iPhone please help

  1. #1
    Default Bricked My iPhone please help
    Im pretty sure that i bricked my iphone

    I was using this guide here

    and downloaded the restore package, and iNdependence, and hit the jailbreak button... it jailbreaked. Said jailbreak successfull, and then 10 seconds later it said some sort of an error.

    I restarted my iphone. But it took 5 minutes for the phone to boot up. Once it did, everything runs really slow. like 1 min after i click on something, it pops up. So i connect to computer, open independence, and cant connect.

    i open up iTunes, i get this error

    iTunes could not connect to the iPhone "iPhone" because an unknown error occurred (0xE8000023).

    please help me
    i did a clean restore before trying the hack, and i synced, so i have everything backed up but i cant connect.. what do i do ...

    I would try restoring again, first of all - by obviously holding the Home and Sleep buttons for 25 seconds and then letting iTunes restore it.

    Sounds like youre screwed. You didnt restore the iPhone using iTunes 4.3 did you? I'm guessing you also didn't use the newest version of iTunes or INdependence or something?

    See if you can return or exchange it from wherever you bought it.

    You could give some details in case someone else has a problem like this.

    Good to know it got fixed.

    I agree with above poster - you should explain what you did, because I got a feeling there's going to be a bunch more people with the same problem
