    Default Help - Geohot Method Brick

    OK here is the problem. I powered off the hone and proceeded to do Geohot's solder method. I had both points perfectly soldered and noticed hey my screen is on. I turned over the phone and there was a white screen. So I hooked back up the power switch and she turned off. Now she won't turn on. Not with the power switch and not by holding it with home. I desoldered the wires and checked the trace and everything is solid. It looks great. So I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or if there was an internal reset pont or anything. Any suggestions and help woul dbe great..I may be the firs casualty of Geohot's method. Whatever you do desolder the red lead so your phone doesn't power on. I don't think it could have erased anything so I don't know the problem. Ahhhh...

    You've probably bricked your phone. I suggest, plugging in the USB and see what happens, if it'll boot or anything. If not, put it all back together, try to hide and traces that you've opened the phone, and send it back to apple.

    Ouch.

    Spares, anyone?

    I doubt there is much you can do with it, it was a high risk venture you entered into, and it sounds, unfortunately, that you were one of the casualties.

    If it gets as far as a boot logo, all might not be lost, you might be lucky enough to have just scrambled its brains a bit, but not enough to kill it.

    The test point, with a power off, followed by a power on should allow you to reflash the sgold2, but it does sound that if the power was on, and you were doing something to the test point, you may have simply just fried the chip, or god knows what else.

    Either way disconnect the test point and plug it into your PC/MAC and see if you can coax life back into it. You never know.

    Sorry yes, what I meant was the line you have to pull high. (its not a test point, is it).

    What i was trying to say was basically if you haven't removed your soldering, do so and try the power up regime. If you have, you might as well try putting it back and then trying a power up.
