Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
When I turn on the iPod, it tells me to connect it to iTunes, the thing is that it is connected to a USB. Then at the bottom it says "Slide to Unlock" but when I try, it doesn't slide. It then just shuts off a second later with the loading circle, and does that everytime I turn it on. It doesn't connect to iTunes for me to use the ZiPhone firmware either. What do I do?!
Before you connect your iPhone or iTouch to iTunes.
Try and put the device into DFU Mode.
Plug your USB cord into your Device and Not into your computer.
Turn the Phone all the way off by holding the power button until the Red Bar appears and Slide it off..
Hold the "Home" Button Down for 5 seconds.
Then Push and Hold the "Power" Button while still holding the "Home" button and count to 7
Let go of the "Power" button while still holding the "Home" Button and Hold the Home button for approx 26 seconds.
The screen may or may not go blank with lines. No Worries!! now plug the USB into the computer with iTunes open. If the iphone is in DFU mode, iTunes will come up with a popup that says, "Itunes has detected an iPhone that is in recovery mode. Your must restore it"
Once this occurs, you can restore your device with any firmware by pressing "SHIFT" on your keyboard and "Clicking" Restore with your Mouse. Restore your device and let it mount to itunes.
If you are unlocking the device, I would suggest using "QuickPwn" you can get it HERE
You can download Apple iPhone Firmware HERE, when using quickpwn you will need to upgrade your firmware to 1,2_ 2.2_5G77...NOT 2.2.1
(TIP: Don't restore your iphone with custom firmware in iTunes. Restore with the original Firmware and Unlock or Jailbreak letting Quickpwn make the custom firmware....Also if you have a 3G do not ungrade in itunes to the 2.2.1 firmware, it changes the phone modem baseband and renders it "NOT" unlockable)

If you've set up automatic syncing, iTunes syncs your device by default whenever you connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer. If you don't want iTunes to sync your device without being prompted, you can change this setting.
You can prevent unprompted syncing for any specific iPod, iPhone, or iPad; or for all iPod, iPhone, or iPad devices you connect to your computer.
Connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer.
In iTunes, select your device (below Devices).
Click Summary, and then deselect "Open iTunes when this Device is connected."
In iTunes, choose Edit > Preferences.
Select "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically."
If this checkbox is selected, any connected iPod, iPhone, or iPad won't sync without being prompted.
To sync your iPod, iPhone, or iPad when unprompted syncing is disabled, connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer, and then choose File > Sync "Device Name" in iTunes, or click your device (below Devices) and then click Sync.
For more information, see the iPod, iPhone, or iPad User Guide or the Apple Support website.

You may encounter the following symptoms while updating or restoring your iPhone or iPod touch:
If this occurs, you can place the device into recovery mode and attempt to restore the device again. If iTunes displayed an alert with an error code, see this article before attempting the steps outlined here.
Note: In certain situations, an iPhone or iPod touch will automatically go into recovery mode after an update or restore issue. If your device is already in recovery mode, you can attempt to restore using iTunes.
Use the following steps to place your device into recovery mode. If the device is already in recovery mode, you can proceed immediately to step 6.
If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, try these steps again. If you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen but the device does not appear in iTunes, see this article and its related links.
When using recovery mode, you can only restore the device. All user content on the device will be erased, but if you had previously synced with iTunes on this computer, you can restore from a previous backup. See this article for more information
