    Unhappy [Loop of the death] Stuck in and can't restore w iTunes anymore

    hi

    a friends iphone seems to be bricked i think...

    - it tries to reboot in a loop
    - stays with the apple logo for a while and then tries to reboot, stays with the apple logo...a.s.o.
    - with holding the home+start button, we get it into restore mode

    but:

    - restore with itunes won´t work... when "preparing iphone to restore" (we used german itunes, maybe it is called little different), the iphone reboots and stays with apple logo... after a few minutes, itunes shows up "error 1603" (sometimes 1604)
    - tried different itunes versions, different firmware versions, on pc and also on mac...

    getting it into dfu-mode with ibrickr worked, we get the white screen... but same error code from itunes anyway...

    even ziphone won´t get "into it"...

    another problem is, that my friend couldn`t even say, which fw is currently on it... first problems started with 1.1.1, but the restore seemed to be worked "halfways", because after making the "push both buttons..."-thing, we`ll see the itunes logo with the cable... a sign for at least 1.1.2, isn`t it?!


    someone got an answer to this problem?? or even a hint to work with?
    is there a way to force the restore without letting itunes prepare anything stupid??


    sorry for my english, i`m german...

    thanks in advance for any help...

    marv

    the reason why I said switch cables is because me and a few other senior memeners spent a few hours dealing with the same thing and it turned out to be the cable, what error or errors does iTunes give you ?

    you could have ibrickr try and downgrade it, maybe try the activate on the 1.1.2 jailbreak , try and have ziphone do it all or put it in nn a diffrent mode, have iplus try and downgrade the bootloader

    already tried everything you suggest...

    you could have ibrickr try and downgrade it --> doesn`t work, it also tried to run the downgrade with itunes, so same effect...

    maybe try the activate on the 1.1.2 jailbreak --> doesn`t work, it doesn`t even "communicates" with the iphone...

    try and have ziphone do it all or put it in nn a diffrent mode --> tried every 4 modes (including refurbish), waited for min 15-20 minutes, nothing worked...

    have iplus try and downgrade the bootloader --> doesn`t work (tried, although it seemed only for 1.1.4)

    even tried the old apptappinstaller.exe, but doesn`t work either...

    you could try just letting the battery die or switching more cables . Do you know what the last thing you did to the phone before it got like that?
