    Default My phone won't boot up after updating Cydia

    I have updated to OS 3.0 and jailbreak and unlocked it using redsnow almost a week ago. Everything worked fine until I update the Cydia tonight.

    After the update it hanged and I had to restarting it by pressing the power and home button. Now it won't boot up. It shows the Apple logo and after that a black screen will appears.

    Does anyone encountered this problem?
    Is it safe if I put the phone in DFU and restore OS 3.0 again? I mean can I still unlock it after restoring the OS 3.0?
    If not can you please tell me how can I solve this problem?

    Thanks.

    I guess I have the same problem (very similar), apple logo not disappear it still on all time. But the most problem is that phone are not recognized by iTunes (iphone Browser, iFunBox & PC suite also). And I cant even restore it. Only thing what communicate with phone is redsn0w - I can jailbreak it again and again... No changes. Now I will try to let battery drawn out and start everthing again.

    I've got back my iphone clean and clear like on day of purchase. I did use phone restore mode or DFU (if it's The same).

    I have no idea about further unlocking.
    Good luck!

    Default RE: My phone won't boot up after updating Cydia

    In my case its 2G iphone, and I recovered it by entering DFU mode and then restoring(using iTunes) to its jailbroken 3.1.3 firmware by snowbreeze. You might want to back-up your data first before restoring. I'm not sure if this is possible in DFU mode, in my case I was just too focus on making my iphone usable again that I forgot to backup first.

    To enter DFU mode:
    - connect your iphone to your PC
    - launch snowbreeze GUI.
    - at the bottom there is a DFU button, click it
    - follow screen instructions, disregarding the iphone flickering display.

    HTH...
