Endless reboots on startup - end of my wits
I have got a 1.0.2 iphone which has been thoroughly hosed by some lady who doesnt remember what she did. Probably she fiddled with some software.
Symptom: Endless reboots with grey Apple on startup.
Iphone only goes into restore mode with home-and-power button when connected to USB cable.
Itunes shift-restore method with 1.0.2 fails also. During preparation of restore iphone reboots or crashes while the little circle is circling, on crash circle stops. itunes throws either 1611, 1603 or 1604 error.
iBrickr 0.91 claims that phone is acting up but essentially fine and successfully shows red screen. iBrickr is also able to get white screen up for restore preparation.
apptapp installer hangs in stage 1-2.
Things I tried apart from restore to stop endless reboot loop:
"If you have a Yellow Triangle still, you wil need to go into the folder you unzipped ibrickr. There is a icon that says iphoneinterface.exe. Double click, and you will get a prompt you can type from. Type "setenv auto-boot true" then hit enter. Then type "saveenv" then hit enter again. Last type "fsboot" and hit enter again. Close the command window, and after about 5 seconds you will see the Activation screen on your iphone, you may have to turn off and back on."
back to jail and deactivate didnt help.
iphonecomm -s 4 method - since I use windows I used iphonecomm from windows apptapp installer
didnt help however as mentioned above I used the Windows version and I dont know whether thats the same thing.
This method requires Apptapp 3.0 which only seems to exist for OSX - is anyone aware whether the Windows Version 0.92 is equivalent ?
Any hint on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. My best hope is that there is somewhere a windows apptapp 3.0 version out there which does the trick.
find a friend with a mac the apptapp osx solution to the endless reboot is the only method I am aware of...
Tried that today. I managed to get the iPhone only after big difficulties to react once to the iphonecomm -s 4

Which tool can I use to see exactly which status the phone has internally ?
