Thread: Tethered iphone wont switch on

  1. #1
    Hey all,

    Well was out last night and for the first time since I have had it my iphone 4 died.

    I tried running redsn0w and booting just tethered but it just keeps coming up cannot recognise device or something like that. I have tried running it with just the apple logo on and also i think in DFU mode as the screen goes blank but still nothing. I thought the battery might have been to dead so I left it charging overnight but this morning still doing the same.

    Any ideas what I can do? I really dont want to have to lose everything but Im beginning to feel I may have no choice

    Thanks all

    I've just tried to restore it so I can take it into the shop to get a new one but my computer wont detect it.............???? Just stuck on the apple logo...........HELP

    If you cannot restore to the latest with hosts file pointing to Apple server, then take it back to apple store for a swap.

    You cannot restore your iphone from frozen apple logo, you must trigger it into Recovery mode before you can restore to the latest fw.
