[1.1.3 (1.0.2 OTB)] [Problem] Won't power on
I purchased a week 30 iPhone a while back and unlocked it under 1.0.2. I have since updated it to 1.1.1, 1.1.2, and 1.1.3 as the respective jailbreaks/unlocks occur.
However, today I plugged in my phone to my Harmon Kardon GoPlay speaker system. I noticed the screen turn white as soon as I plugged the speakers into the wall (these speakers try to charge the iPhone when powered by AC). I instantly pulled the iPhone off and tried to reset the phone.
The phone went into DFU or Restore mode, so I used Independence to bring it back (I always read that Independence doesn't work for 1.1.3, but it lets me leave DFU/Restore mode).
Anyways - after the phone starts up again, I could use it normally for a few minutes before the phone would die and have to be powered up again. It would then go back into DFU/Restore mode until I used independence.
Eventually, after about 10 minutes (iPhone was not hooked up to any power source nor computer), the iPhone Repair Required box came up and I lost Wifi and Signal.
I tried to restore to 1.1.3 in itunes only to receive a 1011 error. The same error happened when I tried to downgrade to 1.0.2, 1.1.1, or 1.1.2.
After the first 1011 error, I noticed the screen did not turn on anymore unless the phone was being restored. At that point, the Apple logo would show. But when not connected to the computer, nothing shows.
After trying all downgrades, I went to restart the phone again - however this time nothing would happen. No power to the screen (that I can see) and iTunes does not recognize anything to be plugged in via USB. I have to hold the Power/Sleep button together for 10 seconds for iTunes to see that it is attached. Only then does iTunes every recgonize that something is attached, but then it spits out a -50 error saying the attached iPod could not be recognized.
I have checked both the iPhone connector area and the sync cord and can't find a thing.
So right now I have a Week 30 iPhone with 3.9 BL that doesn't show anything on the screen no matter what and iTunes will only recognize it if I hold down sleep/home for a while. However, iTunes tells me it can't recognize the attached item and doesn't allow anything further then that.
If anyone can help me with this - I will wire $60 to their paypal account instantly upon my phone working again.
UPDATE: Getting desperate here, so I've doubled the reward to $60 if someone can help me.
I've noticed that Console.app shows the following once in a while (but not every time) when I try to get iTunes to see the iPhone:
15/02/08 2:07:32 AM kernel USBF: 1248.315 IOUSBCompositeDriver[0x4417d80](USB DFU Device) GetFullConfigDescriptor(0) returned NULL

Im no dev but ive "bricked" my iphone many times. I recommend restarting you computer or switching usb ports. Going to another computer would be better. Also try and run I brickr while iphone in restore mode and tell it begin downgrade to 1.02 and then try to restore to 1.1.3. Id ask you to pay me but you know google is gr8 use it
use ibricker to put it in special dfu mode then try..
I've tried switching computers... no luck. I also downloaded iBrickr .91 and tried that as well, nothing either.
Whenever I try this reset (sleep/home), the iPhone seems to only establish a USB connection for a second before cutting out - I think that's what causes the -50 error in iTunes.
However, I don't think the phone is physically damaged because it was restoring (minus the 1011 error) before.
Anyone else have any ideas at all?
Check the hardware section of this forum. Some people had trouble after they connected iphones to 3rd-party adapters. I'm afraid something's fried and you should look into getting Apple to replace it.
Try one these restore methods.
1. Take your iPhone off the dock and make sure it is off.
2. Hold the Home button.
3. Dock the iPhone while still holding the Home button.
4. Keep holding the Home button until the iTunes logo and dock connector screen appears.
5. You can now let go of the Home button.
6. Attempt to restore in iTunes.
1. Make sure your iPhone is off but docked
2. Simultaneously press and hold the Home + Sleep/Wake button.
3. Keep holding the buttons until you see the Apple logo.
4. Once you see the Apple logo, let go of the Sleep/Wake button, but keep holding the Home button.
5. Keep holding the Home button until the iTunes logo and dock connector screen appears.
6. You can now let go of the Home button.
7. Attempt to restore in iTunes.
