IPhone 2G hangs at "slide to unlock" - restore not helping

IPhone 2G, 8GB
Firmware 2.2
iTunes used 8.0.1
Jailbreak tool: QuickPwn 2.2.1

Ever so often (once every few hours after the phone has been idle), when I try to "slide to unlock" the phone, it hangs (gets stuck without unlocking). The screen seems frozen.

If it leave it as it is for quite a while (3-5 minutes), the phone reboots itself! If not, I have to hard reset it/reboot it to get it out of it. Sometimes, the hard reboot causes the phone to get stuck at the Apple logo during boot.

I've restored it several times. The problem hasn't gone away.

Any suggestions on what I can do besides tossing it against a brick wall?

Does anyone have any experience of this going away if I restore it to firmware v1.1.4 and then jailbreak it?

TIA.
my apple iphone with firmware 1.1.4 and capacity 8gb got hang and i could not restore while appearing apple logo can any one help me pls

    I bought from ebay the same model, iphone 2G 8Gb......at the beginning all was perfect but after two months, the "slide to unlock/slide to answer" application doesn't work. When someone is calling me, I have to press twice the upper right button (1st time will turn the phone call to silence, 2nd time will hung up the call and switch off the screen) and then to press it once more to make the "slide to open" appear....even in that case, doesn't work all the time, so sometimes, I have to try slide it 4, 5, 6 times.
    I have this problem since previous August. I have update the software 2 times but the problem is always there. I have a not so clear thought, that I've got this problem from since I've started to download several small applications for the iphone, and although I'm updating the OS, the problem is always there because I have "backup" it and "restore" it with my contacts, sms's etc!
    It seems that the itunes backup and restore the problem too!

    Right now I have the version 2.2.0
    As soon as I will find the time to update my iphone to 2.2.1, I will keep it for somedays without restoring my contacts etc, just to check if I'm right or wrong!

    I like the iphone very much but noone of my previous mobile devices didn't broke my balls and nerves so much as iphone did right now!

It looks like you need a new iphone digitizer which you canreplace yourself. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. The part is available on Ebay. If you want to have somebody else do it for you there are third party iPhone Repair Services.

TUNE TOOLS WON'T READ MY 80GB IPOD BUT USED TO WHAT DO I DO ? TUNE TOOLS MESSAGE IS:(THERE WAS AN ERROR LOADING THE APPLICATION:JAVA.LANG.EXCEPTIO:UNNOWN MHOD...TYPE-102)


By any chance had you recently upgraded your ITunes to ITunes version 9 or higher? Tune Tools used to work fine for my Ipod Classic 80 gig, but as soon as I upgraded my ITunes to version 9, the Tune Tools 2 stopped working, and I got that exact same java.lang.exception error.

If you have updated to ITunes 9, there isn't anything you can do about it.

How to Unlock a 16GB iPod Touch


How to Unlock a 16GB iPod Touch
Apple's iPod Touch comes with a screen lock feature that allows you to set a four-digit security code to prevent others from using your iPod. Every time the iPod locks, you must enter this code to unlock the screen and access the user interface. Entering the wrong code too many times, or simply forgetting your security code, can cause you to be completely locked out. When this happens, you can quickly
Instructions
1Connect your iPod Touch to the computer you usually sync it with. When you disconnect your iPod, it should now be unlocked.
2 If Step 1 does not work, you have to restore your iPod Touch. Be advised that restoring your iPod Touch returns it to the original factory settings. This means that all your songs and files will be deleted and lost. You can resync your files to your iPod from iTunes once you have finished restoration. Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes before proceeding.
3 In the left navigation panel in iTunes, select your iPod under the "Devices" section. Click the "Summary" tab and select "Restore."
4 When iTunes prompts you about backing up your data, click "Back Up." In the following window, click "Restore."
5 After the restore process completes, you will see the Apple logo on the screen of your iPod. Leave your iPod connected to your computer until it shows up again on the iTunes navigation panel.
6 Your iPod touch is now unlocked. In iTunes you will be able to setup your iPod. Select the backup you made in the drop-down menu to restore your data files. Click "Continue" to finish the restoration.

Tips & Warnings
Apple notes that the company will not be able to help you unlock your iPod if you forget the security combination. Your only choice is to restore the device to the original factory settings.

The things about streaming video from ipod to mac


Stream to Me is currently available in the App Store forthe great price of $2.99. If you have a Mac desktop machine and a lot of videosyou'd like to be able to watch anywhere in your house, I strongly recommendthis app! While there are a few things we'd love to see enhanced in the app, asit stands now it's very functional and very fast. WhileAirPlay is intended to allow iOS devices or iTunes to stream media to thecurrent-gen Apple TV or third-party receivers, AirPDF and Bruce utilitiesextend the AirPlay universe to allow you to show content, weather/RSS orarbitrary video files and images from your Mac to your Apple TV, all withoutdiving into iTunes. AirFlick even cooperates with Air Video Server to transcodefiles and streams on the fly, meaning that otherwise-incompatible video formatslike AVI or MKV play just fine. Coupled with their iPhone app, Air Videois a Mac/Windows desktop application that is designed to act as a server andstream videos to the iPhone (or iPod Touch) in almost any format, even ifthey're not encoded in h.264! It has a built-in converter which does all theencoding on-demand! As I've previously said, Air Video will work on both Macand Windows. Way back in February, I posted a reallycool tip which allowed Mac users to<a href="http://www.ipod-computer.net/guide/stream-video-from-ipod-to-mac.html">stream video from ipod to mac</a> over the network and even through theInternet onto their iPhones by using the professional ipod to mac transfertool. This involved the use of symbolic links, Terminal, converting videos intoh.264 and adding them into iTunes. As cool as the tip was, there were too manyvariables where things could go wrong. And sadly, as Murphy's law woud imply, itdid go wrong for several people - they couldn't get it to work at all. iPod to Mac Transfer is a great optionfor streaming video from your Mac desktop computer to any iPhone, iPad, or iPodTouch in your home. With an easy-to-use interface, this iPod to Mac transfercan transfer files between iPod and Mac at will. You can use it to <b><span>steam videos from iPod toMac</b>, no need to use iTunes. Also, you can sync your iPod filesto Mac and even iTunes with great ease.</span> <b>Step 1: </b>RuniPod to Mac Transfer, link your iPod to your Mac OS, and then the program canrecognize your iPod automatically. <b>Step 2:</b>Select the movies that you want to transfer to Mac and press <b>"Exportchecked files to local"</b> button. <b>Step 3: </b>Selecta local folder and click the <b>"Save"</b> button to exportthe movies from your iPod to local folder. <b>Step 4: </b>Whenfinished, the following dialogbox will be poped-up. It will show how many fileshave been done. Now, you should have a clear mind of howto stream video from iPod to mac. With this useful iPod to Mac software, youwill save you significant time and money to sync all your multimedia files toyour iPod and iPhone with ease! <b>Related Guide:</b> <a href="http://www.ipod-computer.net/guide/how-to-recover-deleted-video-from-ipod.html">howto recover deleted video from ipod</a> <a href="http://www.ipod-computer.net/guide/extract-videos-from-ipod-nano-to-mac.html">extractvideos from ipod nano to mac</a>

Problem with iphone Firmware version is 04.02.13_G for V1.1.2


The software (firmware) in an iPhone is designed to detect (indeed reject) tampering. It is only available (full-featured) in the United States of America. Apple is planning on marketing other countries, but hasn't done so yet. Until they do, the most reliable 'fix' for your issues will be from hackers, most of whom aren't the least bit reliable. The most you'll be able to do is use it as a phone and send and receive text. Most of the high-tech features that make an iPhone desirable won't work until the network supports it, even if you do find a way to hack the software. Many users in the USA have found that hacking their iPhone has made their phones useless, since the system is designed to detect and reject service requests from iPhones using pirate software.
