    Question [iPhone 2G 2.02] Hangs on boot screen - will not recover anymore!

    Hi there,

    I am at a loss. After successfully quickpwn'ing 2.02 I figured I install boss prefs in Cydia. My iPhone seemed to crash (running circle for minutes) so I decided to reset it (sleep/wake + home).
    Since then the only thing I can see is the apple logo coming up but I simply cannot get it into recovery mode anymore. My phone will not be recognized by iTunes (or quickpwn for that matter).
    I don't want to say I am an expert in getting into recovery mode but I certainly think I know what I am doing and I can tell you that the unit is simply not doing it.
    All it does is:
    once I turn it on it goes to apple logo (would stay there indefinitely)
    if I press wake/sleep + home I will get the logo to disappear after about 5secs. Then while still pressing both keys the logo would come back for another 6-7 secs till it vanishes for good.

    I feel pretty desperate here and kinda see that I gotta return that to the store unless someone of you guys has some hardcore "wake up" call for my little gadget.

    Though please, do not tell me to get my timing right. Apart from doing it countless times the way I always successfully did it before I also tried (possibly almost) all kind of different combinations.

    Thanks in advance to anyone outthere who might have more clues than I do. :-)

    Cheers,

    Tillman

    SOLVED!

    I feel way beyond stupid but...somehow the USB connector was slightly unplugged. Not entirely so that the phone would still wake up from black screen and show the apple logo but unplugged enough so it wouldn't work with iTunes anymore. After properly replugging I was easly able to get back to recovery mode.

    Best regards,

    Tillman

    Default Phone won’t boot, hangs at apple boot screen

    ymptom: iPhone won’t boot, hangs at pineapple boot screen
    Fix: Put iPhone in DFU mode.

    Launch iTunes
    Connect iPhone to computer via USB cable
    Shut iPhone off
    Press & hold both the power button and home button (Note Screen will be blank)
    Release power button after 10 seconds
    iTunes will now recognize the iPhone in DFU mode. It will then give you the option of restoring it.
    Restoring an alternative .ips file within iTunes.
    Launch iTunes
    Connect your iPhone
    On the iPhone summary screen press and hold Shift and press Restore.
    You will be given the option of selecting your own .ipsw file.
