    Exclamation Iphone doesn't boot and recovery mode isn't recognised

    I just recveived an iphone from the states today. All was well, I was able to get wifi working and I got everything set up

    While I was fiddling I used both jailbreak.toc2rta.com and jailbreakme.com. Jailbreakme worked, the phone rang and I slided to unlock and then shut off the phone... then the problems started

    the phone just hangs at the apple logo, and when I go into recovery mode iTunes doesn't recognise it, and neither does iPhuc

    I really want to get it working, and I can't return it

    Any ideas?

    Okay, this can be fixed, but you have to follow closely. Hold down both the power button and the home button for exactly 10 seconds, then, (after *EXACTLY* ten seconds) release the power button (for the record, that's the top one). Now, while still holding in the home button, connect the USB cable to your computer (it shouldn't be connected in the beginning). iTunes should detect your iPhone within 10 seconds, and you should be able to restore and proceed as usual. Note that your iPhone's screen will not be on until the restore has actually been initiated. If the screen comes on before you release the power button, you are holding too long. Even when you connect the USB cable, the screen won't come on right away, but iTunes should detect it just fine. As far as I know, there are no reports of this method not working if the steps are performed properly, so keep on trying if it doesn't work the first time. Hope this helps.

    Great I did hold for the 10 seconds (I have to admit it took me a couple of times) but eventually the magic worked!

    In my experiences, this means that your iPhone is plugged in via USB. It should not have anything connected to the bottom dock connector when you're starting out. If you don't have anything connected, just try releasing right before you anticipate the Apple logo coming on. I believe there is a pretty large tolerance as far as releasing the power button goes, so does it have to be exactly 10 seconds for it to work? No, not really, but I find that it's really easy to just go with 10 and 10, works for me every time.

    My iPhone was not plug when I try your method but it doesn't work for me.
    So I try this method while it's plug and it work.
    My iPhone is bricked for 2 month now, maybe it's the cause.

    Have the same w/ another iPhone I was working on today (bought 2 days ago at the Apple flagship store in NY).

    Unlocked around 10 iPhones already, this one simple won't go into recovery/boot at all. Gets stuck in apple logo during boot. Windows give me the message "USB device Not recognized" and "One of the USB devices has malfunctioned"

    Seems like a real iBrick to me...

    This phone was bought in the same store, but I know of people going to NY in december so I might be able to get it replaced if things don't work out, but hopefully they will. I might just be doing something wrong.

    this worked for me - With iTunes off - Phone on and at the apple logo - Hold both sleep and home button until the apple logo disapears - as soon as it disapears release the sleep button - your screen should go pixely (looks like faint lines) dont release the home button - Open iTunes while your still holding the home key untill it recognizes the phone in recovery mode - If it doesnt try the procedure again - make sure it has the faint lines
    Enjoy!
