Try doing a factory restore using iTunes or QuickPWN and if you need to jailbreak it again, be careful what apps you download from cydia...some of them cause problems with jailbroken iPhones, just research online for which ones are notorious for problems

How to wipe iPhone cleanly


"Erase all content" means all of YOUR content, including all applications you have downloaded and all the data for those applications and all the data for Apple applications (i.e. Mail, Photos, Calendar, Safari, etc.) will not be completely removed from the device, they still remain on your iPhone and can be easily recovered by some iPhone data recovery.

I highly recommend you to try Safewiper iPhone data eraser app to complete your iPhone data, it will be the best choice when you need to sell your old iPhone or iPad.

How do I restore my iPhone 5 with my icloud account password?


Hi, make sure you have a backup of all of your files in iCloud first and to do this from your iPhone, just go to Settings >> iCloud >> Storage & Backup >> then tap "Backup Now"..............You can now do a restore, via the Settings >> General >> Reset >> Erase All Content and Settings (This only applies if your iPhone is not Jailbroken, if your iPhone is Jailbroken, there's a different procedure for that) Once you're done with the restore, "Setup your iPhone" screen will appear and just tap on the "Restore from iCloud backup".

WHEN I TRY TO SEE RECENT CALL HISTORY THE I PHONE 3 GS REVERTS TO THE HOME SCREEN. IS THERE ANY WAY OF RESOLVING THIS?


hello,ensure you are not clicking on the key wrongly,i would advice you put the phone off and on back to see if the problem stops.if it doesn't i would also advice you ensure you close any application you are not making use of.it could also be as a result of accumulated opening of applications. if that does not stop the problem,i would suggest you get the phone flashed by a mobile phone authorized repair engineer around you.
wish you good luck,
take care.

I wanted to erase all my contacts and info from my phone that i was planning to give away. i clicked on settings on the iphone's screen, clicked on general and then on reset and then erase all content...


I'm assuming you have a jailbroken iPhone. The reset all button just does not work properly on a jailbroken iPhone. What you have to do now is to plug it in your computer, Run iTunes then hit restore. If the phone can't be detected, enter DFU Mode. Follow instructions here so your pc can detect the iPhone.

I just cleared my iphone. It wont boot to the screen where it says to connect to itunes. it starts up with the apple logo, then shows that rotateing thing over the apple logo, then it stops rotateing, and...


To resolve this issue, you will need to restore your iPhone to factory settings This means any data (music, movies, contacts, etc.) will be erased and the iPhone brought back to it's factory settings (like the day you got it).
To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Make sure your iPhone is disconnected and powered off. If it's not already, hold down the power button until the "Slide to Power Off" message is displayed and swipe to turn off.
2. Connect the USB end of the data cable to your computer, do not connect the other end just yet.
3. Connect the other end of the data cable to the iPhone and immediately press down & hold the "Home" button.
4. Continue to hold down "Home" button , until the iTunes logo appears and the USB connection is displayed on the iPhone's screen.
5. Open iTunes (if it hasn't opened automatically) and a message stating that it has found an iPhone that is in recovery mode. (If you don't get this message and the iPhone just boots like normal, then the timing between connecting the iPhone and holding the home button wasn't fast enough. Try again from step #1).
6. Click the "Restore" button and iTunes will automatically download and install the latest iOS version for your iPhone.
The process should take about 20-45 mins, depending on your internet connection. Once complete, the iPhone will reboot and will be restored to factory settings.
Since iTunes requires that all data be synced through there, if you have made any backups to your iPhone, you'll be able to re-sync your information back to your iPhone at this time.

The apple appears on the screen and never goes away. 3GS


Turn the iphone off, hold the menu button, now plug in the usb cord that is connected to the computer. Keep holding the menu button until a dock connector appears on the screen. You're now in recovery mode and should be able to restore your iPhone. If that doesn't work you may have a broken logic board. Here is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPhone. Boards are easily available on Ebay2_bing.gif. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair

My jailbroken iphone won't turn on after I reset data and settings. my iphon won't turn


That happened to me too. When you erase everything like apps, music, photos, etc in the settings, It starts to delete everything. It has something to do with the bootrom. It resets it when that happens.

White apple in middle of black screen of iphone3g


Looks like your iPhone won't boot, It happens sometimes if your phone is jailbroken and you have installed another non-standard language interface, i install Hebrew on my phones, If i then erase all settings it will fail to boot, like yours...
I suggest you restore the phone and re-jailbreak
since you have erased all settings i presume you have no personal data on it, if you do have contacts/calendar/SMS items, try to backup via iTunes before you restore, even when only the apple is showing, sometimes you can connect to the phone via iTunes/WinSCP
Good luck!
