    Default Iphone stuck in boot loop normal fixes not working

    Hi really needing some help here. I've searched for months for solutions but now im having to ask for direct help.

    My iphone has a broken home button. Originally I jailbreaked it by opening it up and shorting the button to enter DFU then jailbreaking that way. Then the jailbreak became outdated and started to glitch so I tried to rejailbreak using the alterted NOR (part of ipsw) method as described here:

    http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/80193.htm

    Initially it did enter DFU then I tried to jailbreak using an ultrasn0w (i think it was along time ago). The phone now boots up to a snowflake then stays at the flake for a few minutes before rebooting and the loop continues.

    It is not detected by the PC (even by recboot), it wont enter DFU (even when opening and sorting the button again) letting it power down and restart also has no effect.

    Ive seen a number of people in similar situations on various forums and comments.

    Is there any hope??

    Thanks for any help.

    Default

    ultrasn0w is NOT a jailbreak
    You must have used sn0wbreeze. This *should* have worked if your custom IPSW was properly made, you got the timing right and followed the instructions properly.

    This technique is a one-shot-only thing for those with a broken home button. Now you are going to have to either get the home button repaired/replaced. Or try the "shorting the button" technique again.
