Jared, try this first.

"1. Download iRecovery for Windows and LibUsb-Win32. You may have to google for the download link (I usually use iReb for my ipods;-)

2. Install libusb from the pack if you are a Windows user. Mac users may skip this step.

3. Open Terminal/Console. Here's how. Click Start button > Click Run > Type cmd.

4. On the Terminal, type iRecovery -s

There are cases when the terminal cannot recognize your device. This happened to me. If this happens, open the libusb. Re-try step 4.

5. Execute the following commands.

setenv auto-boot true



6. Reboot your iPhone by holding home + sleep for 10 seconds." unknown author gets credit...keep it in a notepad file so you have it for the future :-)

Also, check this Is my error 29 caused by incompatible APN 616-0431? it might help you out to see if it is your battery.

i didnt bother i had another spare brand new battery apn 616-0433 and it stopped giving me error 29 now i get error 1015 what do you think i should do?


Try this first.Go ahead and use iReb and kick it out of recovery. After that check this forum and see if that makes sense. Not an uncommon error...;-) What OS are you using on your computer. Windoze or Mac?


im using windows


Okay Jared so go ahead and try iReb and see if it will work for you.


alrighty what do i do on ireb?
