    Default Hard reset, and never came back on.

    I've had a 1st gen iPhone on T-Mobile (USA) since it was possible. Three weeks ago, I got my girlfriend a 3G. Thanks to BL 5.09, I got a Gevey SIM solution to make it work until a better solution comes along.

    Today, she had problems connecting on EDGE, so she decided to restart it. After a soft "slide to power off", it hung on the spinning wheel. So after a bit, she held the buttons for a hard reset. It powered off.

    Since then, it will not come back on. The computer will not detect it. I pulled the SIM and (SIM device) out, and it still won't power on.

    What am I missing? If we can make it power up, I'm sure it can be restored if need be, or whatever. The only thing that has changed within the last week is that last night I installed BossPrefs.

    Help me please, Hackintosh, you've never failed me yet.

    Yeah, I did. Left it plugged in for about an hour, too.

    If it doesn't charge at all, it could be some kind of hardware issue.

    Well, I hope not. But since it froze and wouldn't come back on, that seems more like it's software related, right? Maybe I'm just being hopeful, but if it were hardware, it seems like it would have just stopped working and not needed to be triggered by a restart.

    Any ideas, anyone? If I open it and disconnect/reconnect the battery will that likely do anything?

    Nope. No dice. I had a dock at work, so I wasn't able to test this until this morning. I guess it is a hardware problem. I took it apart, hoping that disconnecting the battery would help, but it didn't.

    So now I'm out some cash, I guess, since it only worked less than a month. I may watch for a 3G with a broken screen, since this one has a perfect screen and case.

    If you got an ATT plan...take it to the store. They'll replace it

    Dont mention it being unlocked/jailbroken etc.
