stuck in "searching," SIM not recognized, then messed it up more
I replaced my cracked screen on my iPhone 4s. To my knowledge, I did it correctly. When I turned my phone on everything looked great, but then I realized I was stuck in "searching."
-taking out my sim card (didnt recognize "no sim"
-having someone call the phone
-and DFU mode
-turning phone off with sim out and then waiting to put the sim back in once its powered up fully.
I've read all the questions already asked. Someone mentioned trying to "restore" your phone from itunes. So, i moved on to that but now my phone is bricked. It will not complete the restoring process, at the very end it gives an error -1. which i understand is a "software error."
someone had mentioned that if this happens and your mac recognizes the phone's serial numbers and information, you may be okay to fix it. but if it doesn't read those, then the phone must be replaced. My mac recognized my iphone's serial number and all of its information still. I simply cannot get it to take new software in. It is stuck in restore mode with the itunes logo and usb on the screen. I cannot get it to do anything else. Thanks for your time
Is this a good question?
