Xperia hang


Corrupted software

It isn't often that Apple gives specific directions about how to fix your problem! Restoring the iPhone 4S will erase everything on it, so make sure everything on the iPhone 4S is stored elsewhere prior to restoring. To restore, connect your iPhone 4S to a computer with iTunes installed. Click "Restore" on the iPhone 4S summary page (click on your iPhone icon on the left menu to find this page). Follow the directions to restore. If your iPhone 4S displays the text "Please wait. Very Low Battery," leave it plugged in. This charges the iPhone 4S enough to be able to restore. If the iPhone 4S hangs on this screen for long periods of time, you may need a new battery.

Force restore mode

If your iPhone 4S is hanging with an Apple logo, or exhibiting some other software problem that prevents iTunes from recognizing it, you can force it into recovery/restore mode and then use iTunes to restore the software.
If the device is powered off, plug one end of your USB cable into the iPhone 4S and leave the other end disconnected. Press down on the Home button, and keep holding it down while you plug the USB cable into your computer. After 5-10 seconds, you should see a "Please Connect to iTunes" image on the iPhone 4S, and iTunes should prompt you to restore the software; follow the prompts and the instructions given above.
If the device is powered on, hold down both the power and home buttons until the device reboots and displays the "Connect to iTunes" image (generally, 5-15 seconds).
God bless you

    To restore your iPhone back to factory settings complete the following steps:

  • 2) Tap the "General" tab, and tap the "Reset" tab.

  • 3) Tap "Reset All Settings" to restore the iPhone to its default settings. Tap "Erase All Content and Settings" to restore the iPhone to its original factory settings, which erases all of your information including bookmarks, SMS messages, contacts and music.

  • 4) Tap "Erase iPhone" to confirm the action.

    Hope to have been of assistance,
    Cheers.

    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

    I cannot use the touchscreen for the upperhalf of the iphone


    Hello.

    Found some info online:

    Try the following:
    • Reset your iPhone Sometimes, dead spots on the screen are merely the result of frozen applications or an unresponsive interface rather than actual hardware failure. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button (on the top of the unit) and the Home button simultaneously for several seconds until the Apple logo appears and check for persistence of the issue.
    • Clean the screen A glaze of any foreign substance can cause operational difficulties for the iPhone's screen. Clean the screen with the cleaning cloth that came in the box with the iPhone.
    • Restore your iPhone As a last resort, try restoring. This can remove lingering software issues that might be causing a lack of screen response. To perform a restore, Connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC and, in iTunes, click the Restore button under the Summary tab. Please NOTE: Restoring the phone will erase contacts, calendars, photos and other data on the phone, but will restore automatically backed-up information including text messages, notes, call history, contact favorites, sound settings, widget settings, etc.
    If you're still having problems, contact Apple for repair.


    Hope this helps.

    Iphone 3G Erase All content and settings problem


    DFU means Device Firmware Update. If a restore using Recovery Mode doesn't work you will want to use DFU Mode as a last resort. When placing your iPhone into DFU Mode it does not load the OS before attempting the restore


    videothumb.pngWatch the Video!
    For your convenience this tutorial is available in video format also. Click the Watch It button to view the tutorial!








    To put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:

    Step One
    Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.

    Step Two
    Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
    4985-500.png

    Step Three
    After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.
    4986-500.png

    The iPhone screen will remain black like this:
    4987.png

    NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!

    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!
