    Default [Solved] iPhone keeps turning itself on

    iPhone keeps repeatedly turning itself on after i turn it off.
    It also keeps randomly saying "This device is not made for iPhone"
    even though there aren't any accessories plugged into it.
    It also drains the battery in couple of hours.
    Does anyone have a clue about this problem?

    Sounds like you need to try a restore then use iLiberty to jailbreak again.

    I am guessing your already on 1.1.4 unlocked so the unlock will remain even after a restore but you will have to jailbreak again.

    If your not on 1.1.4 then upgrade and run iLiberty with the unlock.

    That should fix the problem.

    And DO NOT restore from a back up - set the phone up as new!
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB
    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    <----If I helped you out, rep points are always nice (thanks for that idea!)

    I've already restored and jailbreaked again.
    And I don't think the jailbreak causes the problem, simply because before the problem I've been using it for a month. It was jailbroken the same way.
    So, something else is causing the problem.

    I've solved the problem!

    Here is how, step by step:

    1. Connect your iPhone to the Dock
    2. Turn it off while plugged in the Dock
    3. Leave it turned off while charging
    4. After charging, turn it on while the iPhone is still plugged in the Dock
    5. Disconnect your iPhone from the Dock

    This worked for me. I hope the problem will not come back.
    Try and please inform if it worked for you.

    I also have the same problem with my phone turning itself on unless I turn it off when connected to the dock. It also drains itself in a couple of hours. I have restored it several times without luck. Once I let it drain then connected it to the dock to charge. Then I could shut it off. However, when I turned it back on and played with it for some time and tried to turn it off again, the same thing all over again.

    What I have discovered though is that If I put it in standby-mode (by pressing the sleep button) I can here static noise in the headphones. This is normal, and after a while it disappears and it becomes silent. However, after a few seconds, the static noise comes back, as if the phone starts up from standby due to some program launching (the screen statys black). This then continues ... static noise comes and goes. So the phone is never in standby for more than a few seconds.

    I have tried to look for any programs running in the background with different apps, but I can't find anything out of the ordinary. And this still continues after restores, both regular and from DFU-mode. I have searched with google and on this forum without success, but it's good (or maybe not for you ) to hear other have the same problem.

    I have this same problem but I do not have any "docks" and my 4 is not jail broken.

    My wife and daughter think this is weird but I have always turned my phones off at night. My wife's phone sometimes dies during the night and will weeble pitifully, waking me up. Also, my daughter gets irate when I text her at 5am (when I am up but she isn't). All good reasons for turning a phone off at night. We have a landline if anyone really wants to call us at night. My phones have all been android until now - using daughter's old iPhone 4 to see if I might like to change over. I leave it in the study so am not aware of when it turns itself on. Also I wouldn't know if there are any error messages. Thanks to said daughter I now know how to turn all my apps off and that at least keeps the battery loss down to a minimum.

    I do have one of those Duracell portable chargers and obviously I can charge it in my car but it's very annoying. Can't see a "solutuon" here that works for me...
