    Default [2.1 Update][iTunes 8][2G iPhone] Stuck in boot screen after update

    Hi,

    I just updated my (pwned) iPhone to 2.1 today from 2.0.2. After the update completed, the iPhone rebooted and got stuck on the bootup screen (the Apple logo) with the throbbing ring going round in perpetuity, until the ring pattern seemed 'burned' into the screen. This state would remain until the iPhone rebooted itself after a few minutes, and promptly go back into this loop.

    I did a DFU restore and the same thing happened after restoring from backup. Did a second DFU restore and the same thing happened.

    During all those cases, it repeatedly does double-pulses of vibe while connected to my PC, and iTunes seems to detect and sync the phone normally although looking at the phone that is not the case!

    Has anyone had experience with this? Is there anything I could do about it?

    You sure you are actually putting in DFU mode?? Sometimes it seems so, but you're really not... try other DFU methods to see if it works and try downgrading the FW as well...

    I am quite sure it is DFU mode... I have been pwning the iPhone since the day I bought it and I think I'm quite practised in DFU button-pushing by now... black screen, check. iTunes saying recovery mode, check.

    Downgrading doesn't work either?

    http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1504[/QUOTE

    I know it's off topic.. but, is it safe to upgrade?
    I have 2.0.2 jailbroken using quickpwn (I opted out of cydia and installer because I don't use them)
    And is there any way to be able to copy a file on the iPhone without the jailbreak?
    I read someone saying something about DriveAid but google got me chinese stuff!!
    I still have like 5% for the firmware to finish downloading so any advice would be useful.

    1) Its safe to update to 2.1 on 2G iphone but you will lose Cydia/Installer and any 3rd party apps you have installed.

    2) the file browser is called DiscAid but It wouldn't work on a non jailbreak phone

    I chose an earlier backup to restore from and everything seems to be OK now. No idea what went wrong in the latest backup but I am guessing I had so many customizations in place (Winterboard, 5-icon dock etc) that the settings were just screwed up.

    Okay i am new to this site and iphone im general , Here is my dilemma I got an unlocked iphone running on 1.1.4 i recently updated the software via winpwn 2.5 to 2.0.2 . Everything ran smoothly except cydia kept giving me an error message that i needed to add more sources which i did by the way and it still gave me an error message , but everything else ran fine. I accidently unistalled cydia after that my keypad wouldnt let me dial then eventually it just stopped on me so i restored it with itunes to no avail because i just got the boot up screen with a constant little circle that vibed every 30 seconds , after that i tried to downgrade to 1.1.4 to no avail , lastly i restored back to factory settings just for it to go thru the process of restore and i tunes still not connecting > so basically im stuck on the screen with an usb pointing to itunes (which i cannot connet to )

    im using:
    1rst gen 8gb iphone
    unlocked to tmoible
    using 2.0.2 software
    windows vista
    winpwn


    Someone please help me
