Thread: [HELP] Spinning Wheel of Death after uninstalling HWPEN!

  1. #1
    Default [HELP] Spinning Wheel of Death after uninstalling HWPEN!
    Hi I uninstalled the HWPEN application as it seems utterly useless to me and now my iphone keeps restarting and restarting and restarting and does not stop at all. I really need to get my phone to work without having to restore it again because I haven't even backed up my files / pics / phonebook yet. I'm on Windows right now and if anyone has a solution to this, please help me out here. I am desperate for help at this moment

    try the hard reset that worked for me when I uninstalled that app.
    hold the home button and power button until the apple sign pops up
    if that doesn't work it is probably your springboard.plist. I'll hook u up with one when I get back from school right now

    Yea im sure the springboard.plist would work but how can you turn on your wifi...??

    I'm in a similar situation - I haven't actually uninstalled HWPen yet but i intend to and i'm bracing for the worst.
    When I said that I was 'king of forwards', you got to understand that I don't come up with this stuff. I just forward it along. You wouldn't arrest a guy who was just passing drugs from one guy to another?

    I uploaded the file but Im stuck in the apple logo
    when I uninstalled HWpen it said "restart your phone"....
    then i went to springboard and the little white loop appeared and didnt finished
    so i booted the iphone by pressing the home and sleep until it boots
    but i have been stuck in apple logo since......luckily my ssh works....
    and i left the apple logo all night to see if it needed some time ...but nah
    tried restoring, but it gives me error 1604 or 1602
    can someone help mee....??

    @kennylemme...
    i had the same problem with the spinning loop thing.... wat i did was used ziphone 3.0's advanced features to put the phone in recovery mode.... and then through recovery mode re-installed the firmware using itunes..... hope it works for u.

    itunes backs up all of your important info like contacts/photos. you can restore those back onto your phone after restoring/rejailbreaking/reunlocking.

    just the hassle of doing this + installing all of the useful apps again, takes time.
