    Default How to unbrick my iphone 4

    Help please- Made a real mess of things - had 4.2.1 on iphone 4, jailbroke with greenpoison. Went to update to 4.3.3 x itunes (latest version) & dropped iphone during upgrade (was almost done), which disconnected it - now it won't restore - have tried going into recovery mode, DFU, restoring to a old ipsw before jailbreak, ipsw after jailbreak, new 4.2.1 IPSW, new 4.3.3 IPSW - it verifies, starts the update & best I have seen is the apple logo with a progress bar that doesn't move. Then, it errors out to 1611, 1604, etc. Tried tiny umbrella to exit recovery & redirect host to 74.208.105.171. Still nothing.

    Uninstalled itunes, re-loaded new version on a new computer, still nothing.

    When i power off iphone, i don't get the slider. When I power on, it goes to itunes display with usb cable.

    When I go to itunes, it recognizes need for restore, just doesn't do it. It shows iphone, no capacity (says n/a) software version n/a & serial # n/a.

    I am at a loss & would appreciate any help.

    Thanks in advance

    Help us to help you. Publish your restore log (details in my signature).

    Disconnecting the iPhone during restore is one of the ways you can permanently brick your phone (if you disconnect at the wrong point). The 1611 error worries me a bit.

    One thing to take into account is the fact that, I had to upgrade my iphone 4 from 4.02 to 4.3.3 and I got error 1609, then did a clean restore to apple's 4.3.3 firmware with the same result, apple symbol and couldn't finish the final steps of the restore process. I took my iphone 4 to apple and they upgraded my iphone 4 to 4.3.3 without problems. I read somewhere about a problem for most iphones coming out of the 4.3.3 firmware.

Don't panic quite yet; in some cases, it's possible to unbrick your iPhone.
    These instructions contain vague and unnecessary steps as well as outright errors.

    Most importantly, this most likely isnn't the correct solution for the problem that the originator of this thread raised.
