My phone wont charge unless switched off.
I have an Iphone 4, jail-broken running IOS 5.0.1.
It has been working (jailbroken) for some time without issue. While it is jail broken, I don't have anything installed outside of default stuff that RedSn0w puts on.
Suddenly, it refused to charge or connect to itunes. I have tried wall chargers, computer charger and multiple cables. All of these fail.
I have tried hard resets. I have tried putting it into DFU mode and connecting. This fails (so probably not software?). I have tried a IOS software update via wireless, which fails.
I can only charge my phone by connecting it to a charger and then switching the phone off. If I switch off then connect to a charger, the phone switches on and wont charge.
It is out of warranty (and jail broken) so taking to a apple store is not an option.
Has anybody got any ideas? if it is hardware, what are the likely culprits?
Is this a good question?
