[Problem] [Solved] iPhone appears to be dead after attempting to unlock via Redsn0w
The quick version of the story:
- bought used 2g iPhone
- came with 3.0 firmware (wasn't unlocked or jailbroke... not sure if it was in the past).
- attempted to use redsnow 0.7.2 to unlock and install the Cydia software (left Icy unchecked)
- got to the point where I was asked to turn off the phone click next then put the phone in DFU mode.
- I turned the phone off and clicked next but was never able to get the phone into DFU mode... or any mode for that matter.
Now the phone appears to be dead. It doesn't turn on, and neither my MacBook or my PC will see the iPhone at all (not even getting "unknown device" in device manager on PC, no chimes or anything when plugging it in).
Also no response when plugging the phone into the wall charger (it was nearly fully charged when I started this).
I've tried every "hold such and such button for x seconds" trick I can find online and nothing seems to help. I'm hoping there are some I've missed....
Did I just brick this thing? If so, is there any surgery I can do to unbrick it or am I better off selling it for parts?
