    Default Please Help, Looping Iphone. Im Scared.

    I hope someone on this forum can help me.

    I seriously messed up and now my iphone is in an endless loop where it displays a black screen with a bunch of info and memory addresses, then it restarts and repeats.
    What Happened was I tried to update my iphone to version 1.1.2 from version 1.1.1. What i did was I used one sim to relock my iphone, installed OkToPrep, then used itunes to update the phone to 1.1.2.

    Once itunes finished, the phone displayed the 'connect to itunes' symbol. I was not sure how to get the phone to boot but i remmebered ibrickr had a 'boot phone' option. So, i ran ibrickr v0.91 and by stupidity I clicked the "Free My PHONE" option.

    The phone switched to a black screen where a bunch of white text filled up the screen. It displays weird memory addresses such as 0x001304 or something of the sorts. The phoen currently only displays this black screen with white text, then reboots, and displays the black screen with white text again. It constantly loops.

    I have no clue how to fix this. ANY THOUGHTS PLEASE.

    Thanks for any and all help

    Have you tried restoring it?

    1. Connect to iTunes.

    2. Press the home+sleep button for 10 seconds and let go of the sleep but keep home button pressed for another +- 10 seconds then let go.

    Then restore with 1.1.1 firmware. See if that will help!

    A miracle has indeed come my way.

    I tried booting the phone into restore mode dozons of times, what I did not know is that the phone needs to be docked before it can work.

    when iBrickr puts it into that mode after clicking on free my iphone, it's not really looping, it just takes a lot (it even says so on the ibrickr screen). just wait and it'll finish by itself.
