    Default [1.1.4] BSD Looping Error (can't put in recovery mode nor DFU)

    Used ZiPhone 2.6(1.1.4 OOB) on a mac and did a Unlock,Jailbreak & Activate, the phone worked fine for about a week with and without SIM card. After that I did not use the IPhone for 3-4 days and when I was trying to use it one fine day the screen was frozen (slider was not working). Tried to restart by holding the home/power button but was unable to do it.
    I did a restore (1.1.4) and did a iErase BL(refurbish) using ZiPhone(I have no idea why I did this). After that I used ZiPhone 3.0 to do a Unlock,Jailbreak & activate then I got an error message on the phone "Error please have apple look into it" (not the exact text). Slider was still not working at this stage.

    Then I forgot to do a restore and did a Unlock,Jailbreak&activate again, now I start to see a BSD looping error.
    Please let me know how I can get out of the mess I created.
    Right now I cannot put my IPhone into recovery mode or DFU. As soon as I connect my IPhone to my computer (dead on charge) it goes into the BSD root loop and If I disconnect it from the computer it runs out of battery pretty soon and dies. Combinations of home/reset buttons dont seem to be working.

    Thanks

    Default DFU mode

    fully charge iphone by pluging into power outlet and waitng 1 hour then, turn off iphone when its power off, turn on and right away hold the home button then while holding home button plugin your phone into computer via USB cable you should be able to get into DFU mode. it should work my friend had same problem.

    Thanks for the suggestion. But my phone goes into BSD root loop as soon as I begin to charge it. Also I dont think I can switch it off using the home button. I know it is a weird scenario hope someone can come up with a solution.

    Can you get iLiberty to recognize it long enough to DFU it?

    I just had the same problem...weird. I solved this by connecting my phone to my PC and running iLiberty, even though it was stick on the Apple boot screen. It was vibrating non-stop, but still worked.

    No. iLiberty does not recognise my IPhone. Tried various combinations like plugging it in when iLiberty is down/up but to no avail.
    Any other suggestions?

    When I charge the IPhone (completely dead to start with) I see the red battery symbol and then after 10-15 minutes I see the white Apple logo and after then I see the invalid calibration error followed by BSD loop.
    My concern is why am i not able to put it under DFU/restore mode!
    Will I be ever able to get this phone to work, its a sick feeling.

    The problem for me is that I cannot put my IPhone into recovery/DFU mode. Is there a way other than pressing the home/reset buttons to put the IPhone into recovery/DFU mode?
