Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Ya ya i found an iphone :) and i tried getting through the passcode but my ******* friend tried to many times an now i cant even see the passcode enter anymore i tried restoring it an it still doesnt work anyone help me??
If you know how to put the phone in DFU mode your itunes will see it as in recovery mode and allow it to be restored.
If your planning on unlocking the phone for use without an iphone account, It's super important to restore the phone with firmware from 2.2 5G77 back. Don't restore to 2.2.1
Get the firmware here
For putting in DFU Mode
Plug the usb into the iphone and not into the computer.
1) turn your phone all the was off. (with the red slider)
2) Hold the home button for 5 second and then press and hold the power button for 7 seconds (Holding Both buttons down)
3)let go of the power button and keep holding the home button for an additional 27 second. your screen may go blank. don;t worry
now plug your usb into the computer with iTunes open.
iF it mounts in itunes it will say it's in recovery mode. press the shift key and press restore with you mouse choose the iphone firmware you downloaded from the link and restore.
I believe this solution will help, good luck!
