Question about Apple iPHONE 2G 8GB

1 Answer

IPhone 2G stuck while restoring / Unlocking. After restart, not getting recognized by computer?

Power / Sleep button was not working. I used redsn0w 0.9.14b2 to recreate an ipsw to enter into DFU mode. After I went to DFU mode, I used redsn0w 0.9.4 to unlock. It got stuck at around 80 percent. I opened redsn0w again. As soon as I opened, phone got restarted. Its still locked and not getting recognized iTunes or my computer. When I connect it to charger it'll charge. As the power button was not working, I waited for battery to go down as it'll get switch off itself. After that I connected the phone to computer again. It was charging for sometime and got switched on. But still my iTunes / Computer is not recognizing my phone. iPhone 2G, Windows 7 64bit, iTunes 10.7.

SOURCE: iPhone stuck on Startup logo

Reset the iPhone by holding the sleep/wake button at the top right of the device and the home button at the bottom center of the face at the same time. Hold them both until you see the screen go black and the white Apple logo appear. When this happens, you can let go - the iPhone is rebooting.

Resetting the iPhone should not remove or delete any data or settings.

SOURCE: hi, my iPhone 3G is

try upgrading your itunes to the newest version. also turn off your phone and then hold the home button down as you plug it into the computer. the itunes application should then recognize it as an iphone in recovery mode and prompt you to restore it as new.
Sorry you had difficulties with this. but when you restore it try upgrading to 4.2.1 and then using greenpois0n to jailbreak it. Works wonders.
Good luck!

SOURCE: my iPhone 2g is heating up and losing battery even

It's possible that there is a short in the battery cell and/or that you got water in the divice. My experience with Apple is that their customers are #1. Give them a call and they should at least get you to a point of if they will fix it for free or how much it will cost you.

Dear sirs, i have an Iphone 2G 8GB, recenlty i changed the motherboard, due to a problem cause before. Now to my problem is that there is now software installed on it and my Devise somehow is in recovery...

The phone possibly could be stuck in a restore loop. This sometimes happens due to trying to install a mismatching Baseband / iOS. Try downloading "Tiny Umbrella" and using it to remove the device from recovery. Your other option is to Jailbreak the phone using redsn0w. This will get around the reboot loop, although you will have to be able to use the power button on the phone to put it into DFU mode to jailbreak or use a custom iOS.

Got a new Iphone 3Gs and all seems to be ok but when I connect it to my pc all I get is a "iTunes cannot connect to this iPhone because of an unknown error". I'm hoping its something simple that I've just...

If your using a MAC try the below steps as this worked for me:

1. User - Library - Prefrences -
2. Delete that
3. Restart the computer. It should recognise.

If your using a PC the steps are lengthy, and the steps are:

Restore I-Phone
1) Close all programs and restart computer.
2) Open iTunes and plug in powered off iPhone with direct USB connection.
3) If iTunes fails to connect to iPhone...continue to #4, if it does...restore.
4) Shut DOWN iTunes again.
5) Power OFF the iPhone & Disconnect from computer. (Power off two ways-one will work, hold home and sleep button until off or just hold sleep button until off)
6) Hold down Home button & connect to computer using direct connected USB cable (keep holding down the home button until iTunes sees it).
7) It should go into recovery mode and iTunes should recognise it.
8) If you want to recover to previous software version, Hold Alt/Shift and click restore in iTunes. Then select the old update version.

If the above steps doesnot work then try the below steps:

1. Turn the iPhone ON
2. CONNECT it to the computer with a DIRECT USB connection.
3. Make sure iTunes is open so you'll know when it enters DFU mode.
4. HOLD the Power/Sleep-Wake button AND the Home button for 10 seconds.
5. RELEASE only the Power/Sleep-Wake button and continue to hold the Home button.
6. WAIT until iTunes recognizes the phone in DFU Restore mode (in Windows a bubble pops up saying it recognized new hardware "DFU Mode" or something to that effect)
The last step may take SOME TIME, like, say, even 60 seconds or so.
The screen should be OFF (black), if you see the "Connect to iTunes" logo, START OVER.
It may take a few tries to do the steps just right, just reboot
(hold both Power/Sleep-Wake AND Home until the Apple logo appears and the phone turns back on) then try again.
7. Then restore the iphone

-Plug one end of the cord into your phone and the other in your computer
-Remove the cord in your computer, leaving the cord in the phone still plugged in
-Hold both the home button and on/off button on the phone
-Once the screen turns off, let go of the on/off button but continue holding the home button
-Plug in the other end of the cord in your computer while still holding the home button on the phone
-Once the apple logo appears, continue holding until you see the plug into itunes screen on your phone
-Click restore.

Hope this should resolve your issue :)

My iphone 2g only shows the apple for 10 seconds then shuts down

Try restoring's how...
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
  2. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
  3. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.

    Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" , let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again.
  4. Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  5. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button andiTuneswill display the recovery mode message:

    If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPhone and repeat steps 3-6.
After this you'll need to jailbreak it too....

I bought a used iphone 2g on ebay and the previous users contents were still on it. So I used the "erase all contents" option in settings on the phone. It erased everything, including all the apps! Now I...

Make sure you are running iTunes 8.2. Download the 3.0 ipsw (iphone1,1_3.0_7A341_restore). Connect the phone to iTunes and wait for it to detect. Put the phone into DFU mode (hold the power and home buttons for about 10 seconds, until the phone turns off. After the phone turns off, continue holding the power and home buttons for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, release the power button but continue to hold the home button.) It should take about 10-15 seconds and iTunes will detect the iphone in DFU recovery mode. If the apple logo appears on the iphone or if the screen lights up at all, repeat the process. There should be nothing on the iPhone at all, like its turned off. Once the iPhone is connected to iTunes and is in DFU mode, hold SHIFT on your PC and click restore (Windows). Select the ipsw file you downloaded for restore. Once the iPhone finishes restoring and updating to the 3.0 firmware, jailbreak using redsn0w. After jailbreak, use ultrasn0w through Cydia to unlock. There are plenty of instruction sites for getting and using redsn0w if you don't have it already. I like, but you can probably choose from many.

Hope this is helpful, please don't forget to rate. If you have any other questions, or need any more help with this, send me an email.

Iphone 3G blocked after Mishap

Download redsn0w. Also, if you are talkin about holding the option key, then i'm assuming you have the ipsw file already. Jailbreak the phone using redsn0w, and then through Cydia (which will be on the iphone after jailbreak) get and install ultrasn0w. If you have any questions about detailed unlocking instructions, send me an email. And I'll go into more detail.
