Re: Iphone wont turn on
To fix this, you need to hook it up to your computer, run itunes, and let itunes recognize it. Itunes will notice it's not working right (you may need to play with it a bit to get to this point, otherwise just choose restore). When it's all connected, use iTunes to restore your phone to factory and try the jailbreaking all over again.

First, make sure that if your iTunes version is high enough to fit the version of your iPhone. About charging, I think it means the output current of your charger is to low to charge and run your iPhone at the same time. This case is most like that, when a iPad 2 link to PC it won't charge when the scree is on. If you are using digital products frequently, you can try to get a dual USB output external power supple, which hold on 2 type of output current 1A for common cell phone, 2.1 A for iPad, Pad PC and some device which need high charge current
Leave the phone plugged into the car charger with the "plug into itunes" screen long enough to build a charge. It sounds like the phone is dying before it gets a chance to connect to itunes and start charging through the computer. If this does not work then the store clerk was correct and your battery will need replacing
. Press-hold the Home button (big circle below the screen) and the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the iPhone) simultaneously. Continue holding both buttons (Ignore the "Slide to power off") until the iPhone shuts off and begins to restart. when you see the silver Apple logo you can let go of the buttons. and then try the phone and see if it is ok now good luck
What you can do is hold the power On/Off button + Home button at the same time. Your iphone will reboot. When you see the apple logo, quickly let go the power On/Off button. If you want to jailbreak your iphone, go to www.blackra1n.com and download the jailbreaking tool.
Follow these easy steps below...
- Turn off your iphone
- Run the jailbreaking tool
- Turn on your iphone
- The jailbreaking tool will everything by itself.
- If you want to unlock your iphone after it is jailbroken, hit the blackrain icon and select install Cydia and unlock with Blackrain.
If it is stuck at the activation screen it hasnt been unlocked. The Iphone requires a 2 year agreement to even use the phone. So if you thought you were buying an unlocked version you were conned an unlocked and activated Iphone wouldn't even show an activation screen. If you want to read up on how to unlock and activate your Iphone I suggest readding the helpful guides and free help located here. Clicky
if you restored it, you're going to have to unlock it from scratch. PWN has a new tool out to unlock the iphone even if it's been "bricked". that's what i used when i accidentally restored my original iphone from 1.1.4 to 2.0 by mistake. works great. Just google the "download PWN iPhone 2.0" it's easy to use.
P.S. this may take some time if you've never unlocked a phone before, my first time took 1.5 hours.
If you just see an apple logo or your phone does not turn on, there is a software problem and you will need to restore your iPhone. I didn't want to hear it, because now I had to redo everything; but it's the only solution.
Put your iPhone into recovery mode.
To put your iPhone in recovery mode: Step 1: Plug in your iPhone to your computer, make sure your sound is turned on and not muted.
Step 2: Hold the top corner button for two seconds. You should hear a sound.
Step 3: Now, still holding the top power button, immediately press the home button and hold both buttons for 10 seconds. You should hear another sound from your computer.
Step 4: Release the power button but *continue holding the home button*, for another 30 seconds.
Step 5: Meanwhile, continue holding the Home button and open iTunes. Wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode. You should also hear a third sound from your computer during this time.
Step 6: Click on your iPhone in iTunes. It should say it's in recovery mode and need to be restored. Step 7: Click OK and restore it.
Now you will need to re-jailbreak it, and restore your backup, and also put your music back in.
