    Default [1.1.3] iPhone not recognized on mac / itunes

    Having an interesting problem. The iPhone is not being recognized by the Mac or iTunes and the battery icon does not change when plugged into USB. I have tried reinstalling iTunes, doing a cache clean, reinstalling the latest combined update, putting the phone into the recovery mode various ways and a few other things found on the web. The phone is just not seen at all. However the phone does charge when plugged into a bose speaker unit so I am thinking this is some kind of USB driver issue on the phone itself.

    Obviously without being able to recognize the phone there is no way to restore the firmware and without restoring I won't be able to take it into an Apple store for them to repair or replace!

    Any thoughts on what else to do? Can you sync at all wirelessly as this still works? Can you restore using a wireless connection?

    Many thx

    Oh, yeah stupidly forgot to mention that its running a Ziphone unlocked version of 1.13 so have access to installer and openSSH. Is there any way of restoring to 1.13 or 1.14 wirelessly? Are there any files on the iPhone which can become corrupted and if so how do you replace them without restoring?

    thx

    Thanks for the advice. I uploaded a patched 1.1.3 lockdownd file from here:

    http://george.zjlotto.com/index.php/...ory-activated/

    but no luck. Phone still works but it just won't be seen by itunes or the mac. Definitely some kind of USB problem. If you have a better idea for a patch file please let me know.

    Any other ideas please about how to connect to itunes?

    thx

    Try reseting all settings, switching cords, letting it stay off iTunes for a bit, turing the computer on and off , dfu mode and restore

    try the unpatched file, but the best thing to do would be DFU>Restore

    Did the reset, switch cords, itunes and reboot several times, no change. I tried to get it into DFU mode but it still wasn't recognised by itunes so no ability to restore. Interestingly when I charge it on a bose speaker I get the flash icon to say it is charging but this doesn't come up using a USB sync cable or when put into its dock...

    Thx )law( for the suggestions.

    Tried the unpatched file no change. Have tried to get it into DFU mode but seems itunes will not see it then either. Maybe I am doing it wrong but have followed guides from this site and others.

    Not sure whether your last sentence was a question or statement. As a question no I have not installed or used any of those. The iphone has been simply unlocked using Ziphone 2.4 and then the usual instal of programs BSD, openssh and the utility to patch country codes from the installer.

    Same problem here...

    I'm relatively savvy when it comes to working with the iPhone. I've been jailbreaking and unlocking since 1.0.2 and I'm currently running 1.1.3 ziphone jailbroken.
    I upgraded iTunes today to 7.6.1, and now I can't get iTunes or iPhone ringtonemaker to see the phone.
    I went into my Device manager, and there is no Iphone device driver listed
    Does anybody know where you can download an iPhone device usb driver for Win XP?

    I've already uninstalled and installed iTunes twice
