Can't get iphone out of Emergency Mode! Help Plz

Iphone is unlocked and usable for T-mobile, and still is, but when my screen froze and all I got was the apple logo on the screen, I tried to restore my phone. I can successfully get thru the process and it shows the restoring of the iphone on the phone and itunes, but when its done, it simply goes right back to emergency mode. I've tried every suggestion in the book and no one's methods seem to have worked for me. If you could help me out that would greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time

    yeah my phone has worked before, and It was jailbroken using pwnage tool on my mac. 

  • manbat306 Jan 27, 2009

    it took the phone out of emergency mode, and now its in recovery mode (it shows a pic of the usb with an arrow pointing from the usb cable to the itunes logo) But everytime I get here I try restoring and it'll take me back to emergency mode, everytime..

  • manbat306 Jan 27, 2009

    ok but how do I set it up as a new phone if iTunes says "The sim card is not valid or not installed"? Do I need to activate it? (I'd have to get a valid SIM then)

Hi manbat...

i had the same problem and after hours of trial and error finally found the solution...

go to this topic: iphone_got_locked_when_upgraded_from...

i've posted a solution (marked as solution #2) the stuff you need is in the second part of that post, in the comment i added... i've done it on a 2G and a 3G, tho' i'm guessing it's the 2G that's giving you the problem, and maybe after upgrading the firmware.

read the whole topic and see if it applies to you.

hope that helps!!

    If your Iphone goes Into The emergency Mode Screen After You Restore Just Run Redsn0w, It will Jailbrake it and get it Out Of That Mode.

My apple iphone froze on the apple logo


Connect your phone to the computer and open iTunes. Hold both the home key and the power button until the iPhone turns off. Continue to hold them both for 5 more seconds. Release the power button but continue to hold the home button for 10 - 15 more seconds. I tunes should detect the phone in DFU mode. Restore firmware from this mode.

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.

Iphone on emergency mode


What sim card do you have in your iPhone. If you updated your iPhone to the new 2.0 software then unlocking the iPhone will be impossible.
