Cannot Communicate with iPhone beyond recovery mode or DFU, restores just fail :(
I was wondering if someone may be able to help me ( well my nephew actually)
He's only 17 years old and he has saved his pocket money for like a year literally to afford an iphone. Now being the simple boy he is, he has tried to jailbreak it and messed it all up and so he has called on his uncle to try and save his @ss
This is the problem.
Iphone 3G 8GB. We think that he upgraded to 2.2.1 then used QuickPWN on Win to jailbreak.
Now the phone is in recovery mode and the simpleton that he is he didnt realise he installed the pineapple boot logo and steve blurting in russian recovery mode caption.
Now the problem being I can't restore it for the life of me!
I have an iphone 3g too which is jailbroken but never had any of these problems.
Tried DFU mode, it's fine, Itunes picks the phone up but just serial number no models or anything else and tells me it needs restoring.
When I try to restore I get Error Code 6 ( Recovery mode or DFU)
No matter what I do always error code 6. Funny thing is that if I use DFU mode i get a white screen first.
Now the thing is, I notice when it is preparing for restore the device has the apple logo come up with the status bar, the status bar starts and then the phone just reboots and I am back to being stuck looking at russian steve again
Does anyone know how I can overcome this issue. Someone here must have some idea. Many Many Thanks for reading this. I really really hope I can save this little guy's iphone. I wouldnt even mind paying a small fee to someone for their time to help me.
please find log files here for error
