    Default Been unable to recover iPhone 4 in any way

    Hi there,

    I've been struggling and trying for the last few days, but it seems to be impossible to get my iPhone 4 to work again.

    ## Facts ##
    ++ Whatever I do, the iPhone gives me a red battery icon warning with a thunderbolt. The power supply seems to be fine. Did test a power supply from a friend as well. Same warning. It doesn't seem to charge?
    ++ 2 months ago, I jailbraked my iPhone using greenpois0n

    ## iPhone doesn't respond ##
    Out of the blue, my iPhone turned off and never got back on (the red battery icon).

    ## Finding a solution ##
    Since then, I've been trying a million different things, as found on the internet:

    ++ Greenpois0n
    - Trying another jailbreak. Doesn't work, since the progress on my iPhone fails (unable to find files, unable to load files etc.)

    ++ fixrecovery421 / fixrecovery43
    - Tried both, since I didn't know which version was on my iPhone (if there still was any?)

    ++ redsn0w_win_0.9.9b8
    - The only was thusfar getting my iPhone to work again (with less than 10% of battery) was Jailbreaking using redsn0w. When turning the iPhone off, the red battery icon reappears, and the only way to get back in, is using redsn0w again (booting tethered).

    ++ iTunes and TinyUmbrella v5.10.00
    - ('Start TSS server' only seemed to work after turning 'World Wide Web Publishing-service' off in services.msc)
    - Adjusted hosts file (/drivers/etc/) a million times
    - After trying 100 times, I updated iTunes to the latest version. Trying to update the firmware automatically (not using shift) then seemd to work (to iOS5). iTunes finally completed a firmware update without any warnings. Yay! But...

    I would imagine iOS5 would be on my iPhone now, and things would be working again. Not!
    Turning my iPhone off and on again, resulted in the same old red battery warning.

    Thing is though, my computer recognizes my iPhone again (in some way).

    When opening TinyUmbrella v5.10.00, it recognizes my iPhone as 'iPhone'. It first got recognized as '<number>?', or something. Also, it cant read all the technical information on my iPhone again!

    ## TinyUmbrella ##

    General-tab
    Saved SHSHs for iPhone: iPhone4 4.3.5 (8L1)

    12/02/2011 11:48:56.031 Finished saving SHSHs for [iPhone]

    12/02/2011 11:48:56.093 Cached [1] shsh files

    Since this seemed a break-through (for me) I didn't touch anything no more, and first wanted to post it up here to see if anyone could help me out. When I turn off the iPhone, I still get back to the red battery icon (not charging).

    Does anyone know what I can do from here? Does the information from TinyUmbrella means 4.3.5 is on it (even though iTunes said it upgraded to iOS5)? Is 4.3.5 installed on it, but can't it be loaded because of the red battery icon? Charger malfunction? Or is it something else? I still can get into DFU-mode (that's how TinyUmbrella is able to read the information from my iPhone).

    Hopefully someone recognizes these problems Thanks!

    What SHSH is on file has nothing to do with what revision is on the phone. Your phone can be on 5.0.1 and you can still have a 4.3.5 SHSH. I recommend you do some more research on SHSH so you get a better understanding of how it works as that will answer many of the questions you've asked relating to them.

    Beyond that, it sounds like you have a defective/dead battery -- you'll most likely want to either buy an OEM replacement (OEM ONLY, seriously, aftermarket batteries are trash in most cases, no matter how cheap they are in comparison) and replace it. If you're not really a hardware hacker, you can have Apple replace the battery for you for a nominal fee. That said, I still recommend you take it to Apple if you can so that they can review.

    Hey mate. Seems like we have a similar problem. My phone was running 5.0.1 when it decided to go crappy on me. I can't get a restore to work AT ALL. I wind up getting (21) errors non stop.

    I'm really not good with these sorts of things, but my iDevice starts up... stays charged, and never goes dead. How is the battery the problem? && as for Apple -- how much do they charge just to check the device out for problems?

    Your error 21 probably has nothing to do with the battery -- I was referring to the OP's post about how his phone always shows the red thunderbolt in the battery location.

    Error 21 is caused these days by either attempting to restore a custom (baseband removed) firmware without being in Pwned DFU mode, OR it's caused by having lines in your hosts file pointing to gs.apple.com (which will cause restores to fail now). Check your hosts file (on windows, C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) and remove any lines that point to gs.apple.com, and if you're restoring a custom firmware and blocking the baseband update, make sure you use iReb or redsn0w to put the phone into Pwned DFU mode prior to attempting the restore. It's also worth mention that you should NOT attempt to use Tiny Umbrella's TSS server at ALL when you are restoring to 5.0.1, or you will again get the error 21.

    In fact, there are two ways for you to recover your deleted photos from iPhone. First, you can use a third-party tool to directly scan and recover pictures from your iPhone. Second, if you've synced your iPhone with iTunes, you also can regain your deleted pictures by extracting your iTunes backup file.

    Meanwhile, there is also a thing you should pay attention: Turn off your iPhone and don't use it untill you find those photos, and don't sync your iPhone with iTunes, avoiding iTunes backup being updated.

    2 solutions to recover photos,video,SMS,Contact,app,ect from iPhone

    1.Recover data from iOS Device
    Scan iOS device directly to find data deleted recently,or data lost due to inaccessible iOS

    2.Recover from iTunes Backup File
    Scan iTunes backup files if you deleted data for a long time,failed to recover from iOS device directly,or lost iOS device
    Tips:All you iphone/ipod/ipad lost data have sync to iTunes.You can recover iTunes lost data,including SMS,contact,photo,video,music,call list,app and so on.
    Recover deleted/lost iPhone Photos, Contacts,SMS Messages,video and more from iTunes backup files,with iTunes Data Recovery for iphone/ipod/ipad that you have Scynced/backuped,you also can Recover Data for iPad and iPod,including video,music,photo and other files.

    There is no more frustrating thing than losing your personal data on your iPhone that is important. Data loss on iPhone happens to us and it makes us questioning about how to restore iPhone data. Here is a good news that you can get your pictures back that have been accidentally deleted or lost. And restoring iPhone data after deleted or lost can be done pretty easily with the right tools.
