pwnaged 2g phone stuck in recovery mode
Apologies if this has been covered here before. I have searched these forums and could not solve the problem.
Bought cheap phone sunday for my sons 13th birthday and decided to try to unlock iphone 2g to use the sim from the new phone. We are on att family plan.
Use Pwnagetool 2.02 and initially was able to get cidia on phone but would not read the new sim and find service. I did select option that said no iphone contract through itunes so it would unlock. I was in simple mode. I felt I was not in dfu mode so I put the phone in dfu mode and retried the custom ipsw. I now just have a pineapple logo along with the Steve Jobs logo that says npebea!.
I have googled every possible error and solution i could think of. Nothing seems to work. The main errors trying to restore are 1600 and 1604. When I try to put in dfu mode, I cannot shut the phone off with apple slider. It is not there. I do feel it does shut off and then I hold sleep and home for 10 seconds and then home for 5. Itunes then pops up but the errors continue to come up. I have deleted the device support files in library/itunes/device support and have tried another mac to solve the problem to no avail. I have also tried different usb ports.
2 days now .......any help is appreciated. Thanks Mike
imac G5 , Leopard iphone 2g 2.0 trying to unlock / jailbrake to 2.0.1
Thanks for help. Need more assistance
Thank you for the quick reply. I tried exactly what was outlined but got the same error(1604).
I used the sleep / wake and home buttons to turn off. I then held home button and connected. Itunes saw it in recovery mode and I let go of the home button. I then pushed control / update and it was trying to resore to factory apple firmware which was not successful. I then tried again this time using option/update to get to the custom firmware and again got the 1604 error.
How can I be sure the phone is first turned off and not just asleep prior to beginning this process?
Thanks again for the help.
