    Help Please..Stuck on Apple Screen

    Advertisement



    Hello all, i have recently performed a factory reset on my 3g...upon it rebooting it is now stuck on the apple logo with the circle under the logo. The iphone was jailbroken and unlocked with black rain...anyone have a fix for this? is there a way to get it to come back on and still be able to jailbreak and unlock it?

    thanks in advance

    "factory reset"?? You mean you restored?

    To be honest, I haven't updated to the latest firmware (3.1.3) and I'm not sure if it's even Jailbreak-able or unlockable...been out of the loop since I had NO desire to upgrade.

    Thanks for the response. I did have the phone unlocked and jailbroken. The black rain is an app thats basically installed on the phone...would anyone, know if when i did the factory wipe on the phone, is what would cause this booting issue?? The phone was working great on Tmo and up until i did the factory wipe. After the wipe the phone...actually 2 phone...will not reboot past the apple logo. The really odd thing is...i did this with 2 iphone 3g..and 3gs..both are doing exaclty the same thing after the wipe.

    I did this exact same thing as a TEST, and I had to restore my phone which put the new 3.1.3 OS on there. What you need to do is put it into DFU MODE AND LOAD A CUSTOM 3.1.2 OS on the phone. Go to the restore screen on iTunes, press down and hold shift and clck restore, it will ask what ipsw file use the one I am givin you, it is a custom one that has been cookedand extracted.

    Well apparently the zip is too big PM me with your email, and I will send it to you.

    I think you keep pressing both. Install itunes and it should prompt you to update to 3.1.2 OS. I had a similar issue a while back:

    Im not unlocked. So not sure about that part of the issue.

    No they are not custom but you can make your own custom file from those during the install process.
