    Default Jailbroken iPhone won't turn on - Please help!

    Hi folks. I'm hoping someone here can help me.

    Firstly my iPhone is jailbroken and unlocked since last year when i bought it. It was locked to O2 and i'm on Vodafone so it needed to be jailbroken and unlocked so i could use it. I can't quite remember what i used to jailbreak it. Possibly quickpwn but i've no idea what i unlocked it with. The phone won't turn on so i can't find anymore info.

    Yesterday i plugged it into my macbook to charge it and it stayed at 1% charge the whole time. Then Rock app tried to update firmware and the install failed.
    I thought nothing of it. Went to bed and charged the phone from the wall socket. Got up this morning and it was still sitting at 1% charge so i turned it off and on again only it didn't turn on again. The pinapple logo appeared for a while then the screen just flashes and turns off completely.
    Tried connecting to iTunes and it done fuck all for it. I think i tried entering recovery mode by holding in the on/off and home buttons and a wee dude with glasses appears saying "ПPEBEД" which i think means "surprise".

    I can restore the phone to factory settings in iTunes but i think i'll lose everything. I'm not sure if i've a backup but doesn't iTunes automatically do a back up when you sync?

    Any ideas here people? Really hope someone can help because i really need my phone to work.

    Quickpwn was only ever for OS 2.x
    Rock appeared after OS 3.x I think

    The increasing opinion is that rock is a developers nightmare and is also a source of a lot of crashed iPhones. The recommendation now is to not install rock and use Cydia instead.

    The russian text is normal - that is recovery mode

    Use this guide. You can say you are already pwned. This guide talks about OS 3.1.3 but the steps and tools are identical for 3.1.2 which is the version i recommend. You just need a 3.1.2 ipsw for 3g iphone.

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3G on OS 3.1.3 Using PwnageTool (Mac)

    Then you can unlock with either ultrasn0w 04.26.08 or blacksn0w 05.11.07 depending on what baseband you have.

    Do not restore to stock 3.1.3 this will destroy your unlock

    Cheers, i think that guide will definitely help! I've been on 3.0 this whole time as i've been afraid to upgrade incase i lost my unlock.
    What about restoring my contacts and any apps i've paid for? Are they auto backed up in iTunes when i sync?

    Sorry if i'm asking stupid questions here but i'm not an expert when it comes to iPhones and jailbreaking etc.

    Thanks again for your help!


    Edit - do you know of a direct link to pwnage tool? I'm in work at the minute and can't get online with my macbook.

    Generally - yes - re-syncing your apps and contacts is not a problem as long as you have set them to sync with your mac.

    Restoring from iTunes backup - that is also possible but sometimes can lead to problems. I would take a "try it and see" approach with that.

    Unofficial mirrors are listed at the bottom of the blog post announcing Pwnagetool 3.1.5 you should check these against the SHA1 posted on the that blog entry.

    See Mac OS X: How to Verify a SHA-1 Digest for details of how to check SHA1 on OS X
