Iphone wont boot, itunes wont restore
Please. Anybody....help me...
I've got a 3G iphone which I jailbroke and was enjoying. I noticed it was running a little slow, didn't think anything of it. left it to charge overnight, when i came back all i saw on the screen was that pineapple logo.
I tried pressing buttons, eventually got to the screen where you see the cord and the itunes logo and, 'slide for emergency' i looked at it for a moment then a dialogue came up saying 'repair needed, iphone cannot make or receive calls'
I tried to restore it with itunes but i got unknown error 1604, could not be restored.
i can only shut down my iphone by holding the two buttons, when i try to turn it on it hangs on the pineapple logo for ages then takes me to a cartoon picture of steve jobs spouting some nonsense (which i understand is the restore screen). I can't get back to that screen of the cord and the itunes logo, not that it would probably do me any good.
Ive been reading the net all morning and any solutions i found seemed a bit bogus, tried them anyway, and they didn't work.
making new account
trying on another computer, another usb port, etc.
does anyone have any real solutions to this? please... I think im going to cry...
I'm going to go curl up in the corner now.
PS. I can't even send it back to apple because my warranty is void for jailbreaking, and i cant get rid of the jailbroken firmware because i cant restore, which is my problem in the first place!
