iPhone could not be restored. There is not enough memory available
you all seem the be fairly acquainted with all possible iPhone problems. I was searching this forum for an answer to my problem. iTunes won't restore my iPhone because of an error mentioned in the title of this topic - The iPhone could not be restored. There is not enough memory available. I haven't found anything on the net that I haven't tried yet.
Am using Windows XP, iTunes 7.4.3 and the iPhone used to be on the firmware 1.0.2. I was trying to do the restore but it gave me that error message. I tryed uninstalling everything with WinASO registry cleaner (something like Registry Mechanic), iTunes, apple device thing(or whatever), installed it 3 times, tried to force the previous firmware with Shift+restore, but nothing. I also tried to switch USB ports. I followed the instruction on how to remove iTunes exactly like it was described in another thread - no success.
Is there any help you can maybe provide, but don't tell me to go/send it to an Apple Store, since I live in Europe, where there is no official iPhone yet.
PS: I will try to update/restore the iPhone on a different system today, I will post the details
PSS: At least point me to the right forum thread if there is one already helping people with this problem
So I finally made it work
this is how I was able to bring my iPhone back to life.
I wasn't even able to run iBrickr on my machine anymore, so I went to the office and tried on a different PC with the version 220.127.116.11. downloaded firmware 1.0.2. but still, it gave me the error message.
So I tryed iBricker and he recognized it and I ran the "let the iPhone boot up" option, but that sent me into an endless loop of rebooting and reseting, I just couldn't handle watching my phone suffer like this :eek: . So I checked the forum and solved this little issue by shutting down all processes in the Aplication control panel (iTuneshelper and that kinda sort). I finally got back to the triangle screen - still no go for restore with iTunes.:confused:
So I played a bit with iBricker again and jailbreak and installer, and finally came accross apptapp installer (not the plist or pxl file) I mean the executable. Well it did it's thing and didn't finish at all. So I quit the apptapp installer and just to make sure rebooted my iPhone, well and there it was, the slider to unlock the phone (only to get to the springboard - the phone was still SIM locked).
Nothing was erased, all my contacts, emails, bookmarks, SMS, everything there. :D The phone still had OpenSSH, Installer, BSD Subsystem. So didn't have to worry with a totaly virginized iPhone.
Well and at home, iBrickr still couldn't connect to my Phone to install AnySim so I went (ON MY IPHONE Safari) to http://i.unlock.no and added to my AppTapp, ran it and everything was in order than.:D
And how I even got here, I followed this thread http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=13170 and than tryed to restore to 1.1.1. and there it happened. iTunes gave me this f*king error. So be carefull out there. I have a 4GB model with 1.0.2., bought it already hacked, but don't know which software hacked it the first time. Eventhough it says idiot proof guide and I followed the instruction to the word, It went this bad.
There might be a problem with my phone or what ever, but I probably won't be able to find out how it was hacked the first time anymore
Take care and thanx for your help
