IPhone 3GS Enter DFU mode (no Power button + Phone not activated)
I'm helping out a friend .. The IPhone has been upgraded from itunes from firmvare version 3.12 - 6.1.3.
The phone is stuck on activation and itunes isnt activating it .. the phone was jailbroken before the update was done..
The issue now is trying to get it into DFU mode to use redsn0w as
-power button is broken
-phone not activated so cudnt restore it from itunes
I then used tinyumbrella and put the phone into recovery mode and was able to use the restore in itunes so i could use a DFU IPSW ..
However , i get an error
(3194) - when tinyumbrella issnt running in the background and
(21) - when it is
-ive been using iPhone2,1_6.0.1_10A523_Restore.ipsw which i converted to an ENTER_DFU....ipsw from redsn0w..
i have saved blobs of 6.0.1 10A523 thats y ive been using the 6.0.1 ipsw
earlier i was even getting error (11) and googled that it had to do with host file so i deleted the gs.apple.com from the host file
should i use the 6.1.3 ? or the error is unrelated ?
can some one please help me out with what has to be done ..
Sounds like you and I have the same problem.
- Used a poor tutorial, hit 'restore' instead of 'update' and now I'm stuck on the iOS7 startup screen with NO ACTIVATION.
- My power button is broken, so I cannot do the button combo to enter DFU mode.
- I cannot use RedSnow to put the phone into DFU mode, because in order for a 'restore' button (or any button) to show up on itunes my phone has to be activated.
- I also tried forcing my phone into restore mode with TinyUmbrella, no dice.
So I can't redo/activate my phone without being in DFU mode, and I can't get it into DFU mode without it being activated first.
Sure feels like I'm SOL and my best option is to replace my power button... which, while this is a cheap solution at 20 bucks, is not fun when you have to take out 50 million teensy screws with the hands of an ogre.
So, if you know of a way to enter DFU mode (or solve my activation problem) on **MAC, with NO POWER BUTTON on my phone, and the phone is currently STUCK IN iOS7, with NO ACTIVATION** please help me out! It could be your daily good deed!
I am on the most recent version of OSX, and I have a CDMA iPhone 4.
