Thread: pretty sure i destroyed my phone....:(

  1. #1
    Unhappy pretty sure i destroyed my phone....:(
    i got a 3gs, OS 3.1.3, baseband 05.12.01. i did a spirit jailbreak, then tried to use blackrain to unlock. i put the blackrain source into cydia, then installed the blacksnow package. then, cydia would not restart after 30 minutes. so i did a forced restart and now my phone wont get off the apple logo (wont get back to the main screen)....

    THEN, i put the phone into recovery mode, and dfu mode, and tried to restore it with a custom 3.1.3 ipsw, a regular 3.1.3. ipsw, and general restore through itunes. none worked.

    i'm stuck with a phone that just has an apple logo and wont do anything more

    HELP!!!!!!

    Did you edit your hosts file like i told you before you restore to 3.1.3, but you have to put your iphone in Recovery mode.

    i tried, but ended up destroying the "host" file. see the other post for a full explanation. essentially, the "host" file transformed into a "ms dos application" file, instead of what it used to be....

    i tried to fix it but, can't find a solution....

    I can send you my host file, so it will be in the same format , all you need to do is to edit only those that do not contain this sign #, I have to give it to you through messenger or email. Only very few things is used.
    Make sure this time you use notepad

    And it looks like the more you do , the more messy it gets....LMAO
