    Red face Iphone bricked please help, your reward will be in heaven!

    Ok my iphone 3gs jailbroken recently and unforunatly wouldn't boot up it would get to the apple logo and get no further (no error message or circular loading wheel) so if you left it trying to boot up properly for 3 mins it would then turn its self off again. i managed to get it into recoveryy mode, but i really don't want to restore it, because i have a load of jailbreak content which i would lose if it did (or at least i think i would). is there a way to get it working again and not lose all my jailbreak extension i would really appreciate it.

    also can anyone reccomend a program that COMPLETELY backs up a jailbroken iphone, incase anything like this happens again, because i understand itunes only backs up non jailbreak content and unjailbreaks the device as wel.

    There are a few packages out that will make re-jailbreaking easier, but unfortunately there isn't a way that I know of to completely back the full device up including all jailbreak settings. You can get something like Rock and have it store your package list online, or you can get something like AptBackup and have it save a list of packages, but personally my results with those have been less than stellar. AptBackup managed to cause me serious problems after trying to use it -- it installed wrong versions, did things in the wrong order, didn't uphold dependencies, etc.

    Ultimately, I hate to say I just don't think there's a solid program that does what you're looking for. You can always SSH to the phone after jailbreaking and take a backup of the entire device, but it remains to be seen if dropping that back on after a refresh would work.

    If you can get to a point where iFunbox or DiskAid can access the root partition, you can save a lot of the data -- but most of it will be useless without a tool to properly restore it onto the new phone. There are documented ways to copy the contacts, sms, and phone call log databases to a new device from a rooted phone so that you don't lose that information, but frankly, all of that is stored in a standard iPhone backup from iTunes, so that probably doesn't help much in this situation.

    See if you are able to get filesystem access during the boot process -- if not, there really isn't too much that I can recommend doing other than reflashing... Possible someone else has another solution that I'm overlooking though!
