    Default Please help

    Any one have ideas on this problem? I literly have the exact same problem. I just jailbroke my iphone 4 with jailbreakme.com and was working fine for about a day but then my battery died and I plugged it in before I went to sleep and when I woke up it was still stuck on the apple boot screen. I tried everything, I can get it into recovery mode and itunes will recognize it but I dont want to restore it because I have alot of notes and picture from my vacation to LA and I need to get them off. is there anyway that I can access the file system while in recovery mode and get the data off? it has to be possible to do. or is there anyway to restore the phone without erasing the data from it? I read some places that you could create a custom ipsw file that only restores part of the memory? please if anyone can give us any advice on how to get the data off the phone in any way it would be greatly appreciated.

    by the way I am not above taking apart the phone and taking out the memory by hand to get to the data, so if anyone knows of any hardware tricks that could get the data off I please share.

    also any software that could fix the hanging on the apple logo or get data off or any links at all would help alot.


    Edit: if there is any diagnostic software or something that I could run while it boots to pinpoint the error it would also be great so i can no exactly what the problem is and mabye one of you guys can better help us.

    THanks David

    So somebody posted me the following:

    "This happened to me as well and the only solution I could find was a DFU restore. The reboot loop problem that crops up from time to time didn't seem to be the issue.
    As for getting the pictures back, there is a way with 3.1.1 that could probably be adapted to the iPhone 4 but it's really complicated... Unless you're very good with the OSX command line, I wouldn't try it (it took me about 6 hours to do when I did it with my iPhone 3G, and I'm a Unix kernel engineer for a living. I did get my pictures back, though).

    That said, if you're up for it, Google "iphone ramdisk boot" and follow the link for "msftguy" on blogspot and then look at the comments in the Google Wave mentioned."

    But I'm not that experienced with that stuff. I guess I know a bit since I'm jailbreaking since 1.x. But it wont be enough for that stuff I guess.
    There isn't a simple way/tool of doing this?
    thx

    Since the phone isn't booting to a state where you have direct filesystem access, while what you're asking for *seems* to be an easy thing to do, you've got to understand that the phone is not in a state right now that it wants to create that kind of connection. You've got to return the phone to a state where it can create that kind of connection, and with a bum firmware, there are only a few ways to do this.

    The ramdisk method (I think) would only work for a 3G or 3GS, I do not believe it would work for an iPhone 4 (but I'm not 100%, Olethros could shed a little more light on the subject if he reviews this forum as he's more familiar with the ramdisk methods than I am). My limited understanding of the method is that you're effectively modifying the payload that the jailbreak / flash is putting onto the device in order to skip certain parts of the restore process (e.g., the wiping of the user partition, etc.), but again I must stress I've only read about it a few times and never gone through it myself.

    This is one of the reasons that it is strongly recommended that you sync your phone with iTunes before jailbreaking or before any attempted jailbreak -- once the phone is in the state it's in right now, getting your data off is a right pain in the neck. If you research and find the steps required for the ramdisk, you'll see why no tool exists to do it -- a lot of it is specific to the model / firmware / etc., that you're dealing with.

    Sorry it's not the answer you wanted. A quick search for the term ramdisk will point to a lot of threads that discuss this topic and have a lot of good information on how to do what needs to be done, but it's distinctly not an *easy* process at present.... If the pictures are worth it, it's something that can be done.

    Hey guys I fixed my phone

    Thanks to all who helped and especialy to msftguy for saving my life! here is the link just use his tool to create a custom ipsw that does not erase anything. I was a bit scepticale but it worked like a charm and got everything back fine, like it just erased the jailbreak and everything is just as it was.

    Thanks you so much, and good luck to anyone else who has this problem.

    Great find -- I was unaware msft.guy had made a tool to make the creation of upgrade-specific ipsws or ipsws that ignore the user partition much easier. Good tool to have!
