recovery mode loop. Cannot solve
Bought an iphone first gen 4 gb from some guy on craigslist for 80 bucks for the intention of fixing it and reselling it. This is what i do with electronics. I can fix pretty much everything but for the life of me cannot figure this problem out. When you turn the iphone on it goes to a pineapple then to a steve jobs cartoon. Neither my pc nor a mac will recognize it. Also i cannot get it into dfu mode. I have tried manual methods, a command line method, and i have tried using irecovery which is another command line method. It will not even see the iphone. My computer does not even make a connect sound when i plug the iphone in. I have also tried two different cables. After i keep the iphone on the steve jobs cartoon the iphone shuts off and then boot loops. Any ideas?
