Help! My iPhone 3GS is brickeddddd BRICKED iPhone 3GS( I think ).
Well can someone please help me! I currently bought an iphone 3gs from my friend.. It was on Simple Moblie and Jailbroken ofcourse. I don't remember what it was running on.. maybe 4.1 and idk else... It was running perfectly, all I needed was to get a new sim... It was really slow so I wanted to restore it or reset it so it can be faster and not laggy or whatever....Lik
Same thread, I just edited it..
do you mean OTA RESTORE? (from the updates in setting on the ios ?was it trying to update to ios6? )try to get a charged battery ,or if it charges ,charge it from the wall socket,if not then after replacing battery,try and rstore it via itunes,with custom (or normal ipsw file if its factory unlocked,)if itunes gives you error,metion what error it is,you should be in dfu mode and use ireb5 to pwn it for a custome firmware,also make sure you changes cable usb jack,and the cable is fine ,
did the update finished ?was simple update from itunes and not custome one? have you tried to connect it into wall socket just to see if it charges or does it only disp the logo and reloop?
if it didnt ,then you may try to pwn the device with ireb5
and then try boot tethered from redsnow
but FIRST try to press the volume up button non stop after the first inital time the apple logo is seen,and if that doesnt works
on the hardware pane it might be either the battery either dock port & cable
let me know how it went
you should also try to restore it via custome firmware unless it is factroy unlocked
