    Default [SIMPLE SOLUTION] Reboot loop caused by Blacksn0w or other things without restoring

    I'm here to address a problem that is often faced by many people.

    Alright, I got my iPhone stuck in the recovery mode and i suppose a lot pof you know what is that. It is when your iPhone turn off and on repeatedly and basically, you cannot do anything with your phone.

    I searched all over the web but there is hardly any solution to it. All the usual things are go to cydia and uninstall blacksn0w and Blah Blah Blah but how are you gonna do that when your iPhone has became 'handicapped'?

    Finally, I figured it out.

    To do this, you MUST have SSH access between your computer and your iPhone.

    Alright, I'm now having a 3Gs iPhone running on OS 4.0. Note that while your iPhone is in the recovery loop, there will be a time when the SSH Access is possible. I think this is provided you keep your iPhone's Wifi for SSH.
    From here, before your iPhone turn it self off during the reboot (Which is about 1 min), SSH and delete these files :

    blacksn0w -> /usr/lib/blacksn0w.dylib

    &

    /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist


    Next, just wait for your iPhone to reboot itself again. By then,you have blacksn0w uninstalled. This method is just like removing a program that repeatedly makes your springboard crash.

    Okay, I've done this because my phone crash due to blacksn0w but I suppose this can solve other problems. Most of the time, the reboot loop is cause by a certain program. Therefore, clearing it away should solve the problem.
    I feel weird because hardly anybody address this method. This method allows you to get out of reboot loop and have all apps with you. Basically, no DSF or whatever restoring is needed. This runs on the similar concept whereby your spring board keep crashing and you have to delete the program that makes it crash.

    Sorry about some Grammatical errors. I'm new to this thread so Hi

    Hope this help

    While this *might* work I think it is risky deleting /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist entirely.

    This file controls the communications side of the iPhone, I doubt it gets recreated after the restart.

    A better approach would be to try and replace this file with one that doesn't reference blacksn0w.dylib. That would mean you don't even need to try and delete blacksn0w.dylib in that 1 minute window.

    Also.. as much as I value your contribution. The majority of the users with this problem - used blackra1n (which does not modify the AFC daemon to allow read/write to the whole file system) and not installed Cydia at all (thus no chance they installed AFC2ADD or Open SSH)

    This is a serious problem with the design of blackra1n - making it so fast and so light weight that many useful things were not included. So when things go wrong - we have to resort to the "last ditch method" - and even that only works to 3.1.3 if you have a SHSH.

    3GS owners who have not got rid of blacksn0w by now are ticking timebombs and they are blissfully ignorant - until their iPhone ends up in a bootloop and their only option is to restore to (insert latest iOS version) that can't be unlocked yet.
