Thread: Did I Brick it?

  1. #1
    Default Did I Brick it?
    For some reason my iphone is always telling me to connect to itunes. When i do that its ok but then when i run ziphone it reboots the phone into recovery mode and itunes comes up and says that i have to restore my phone. Then this process starts all over again.
    Is there a way out of this loop? Help

    Run ziphone, leave itunes running in the background, and just do whatever you're doing in ziphone

    Thats what i've been doing but when ziphone reboots the phone into recovery mode itunes doesn't like that and says i have to restore which leaves ziphone hanging. Do yo think there is a length of time i should leave it running?

    I'm starting to wonder if my sim card got messed up up somehow?

    ziphone should take a few minutes to unlock, jailbreak and activate

    Once ziphone starts you can totally ignore what's happening in itunes

    Going to try it again...i'll let you know what happens. Any guess on time, if 15 min goes by should i still bother?

    ya its messed. All is see on the phone is the itunes logo and a usb cable. No Battery symbol no antenna stuff. wish i could format c and start totally over.

    You might just want to abandon using ZiPhone for now and restore it back to normal. If regular recovery mode doesn't work your can put it in DFU and that should do the trick.

    anyway, I think ziphone only works for up to 1.1.4, so that might be the problem
