    Exclamation Lime Green screen of death?

    Hey there community,

    So, I've jailbroken my iPhone 3G with redsn0w for windows on 4.0 yesterday.
    Everything worked fine, except many of the Cydia apps such as cycorder, which look like about to open but just close afterwards (is this normal because 4.0 is new and they're gonna update them or is something wrong?).

    Anyway, I woke up today, and when I tried to use my iphone, it only showed a lime green screen.I tried to recharge it but nothing, iphone wont get regognised by the pc either. DFU mode wont work and so on... A lime green screen, and,when I try holding power+home buttons, goes blank, and when i press power again, goes lime green again! Am stuck.

    Any suggestions? Cheers to the community!

    Post An update

    UPDATE: Hey, my iPhone just fixed by itself after an hour or so... Guess the green screen represents the battery icon... or not? Am still concerned though. What if it happens again, and especially, when I need to use my phone somewhere? Am not sure what it was. This, combined with the fact that most of my fav apps wont work makes me really consider downgrading to 3.1.3 again.
    What do you think people?

    Hey, my iPhone 3G is acting the same way. Plugged it in yesterday after work and it showed it was charging. Woke up late for work and grabbed it off the charger without looking, only to find out later while at work that it was completely dead (wasn't charging?). Came back and have it on the charger again and all I'm getting is the off-green screen.


    Hasn't changed at all, doesn't even dim the screen or anything. Same with no DFU and reset is pointless. WTF?

    I too have issues with apps acting like they're loading and suddenly quitting (off the top of my head, the eBay app is one). iOS 4 in general has been a great big disappointment.

    Oh, and for the record, it's jailbroken with Redsn0w to iOS 4.0.1 running GoPhone prepaid sim. Guess I just wait and hope it fixes itself like urs.

    Update: About 2 hrs in it decided to restart. Works fine now. Battery showing 1% after restart (despite being on charger all day yesterday), but battery normally lasts about a day or two, so I don't think it's a bad battery. Curious thought...maybe iOS 4 has a bug that's related to the charging circuit's controller. I've been doing some forum research in the time my iPhone was stuck in green screen mode and from the other users' posts I noticed that the green screen of death seemed to happen after the iPhone had slipped below 10% battery. I remember yesterday it was @9% when I plugged it in. Can anyone verify?

    To all having problems. (Just happened to me on iPhone 3GS, ios5, jailbroken, unlocked, untethered):


    This problem is when your battery is completely dead. Get the USB cable and wall charger and plug it in. Leave it till you see the Apple. It will reboot on 6 percent power.

    Cheers,

    edit: at least it's a nice green :-)

    Passing by, I noticed this topic. I'm sorry to horn in this way, but my LG900g cell phone is doing the same thing with the Lime green screen of Death. Won't power up or react to touch. But started after I charged up the phone when the battery was under 10%. (actually dead) Now it glows like a traffic light on GO!
