Phone will not charge and screen keeps showing pineapple logo

I recently purchased an iPhone 2g from Ebay and had no problem unlocking it and have been using it with no trouble. My sister just bought one and asked me to unlock it for her as well. When I plugged the phone in to charge (as it was dead when we got it), it does not seem to charge. It's been in for an hour and the red line hasn't become anything more than the sliver it started as. To top that off, the phone keeps going black and then showing the Pineapple symbol for a few minutes and then back to the charging icon. This is the same USB cord that charges my iphone everyday and it works great. I have tried to reset with the home and power button and it goes to the pineapple logo and then back to charging screen (all the while not charging) Any thoughts??

1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card

Also,Try this:

4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Hi guys my name is luke.. my iphone died and whenever i turn it on it shows the "pineapple" (because mine is jailbroken) and its always shown the "pineapple" ever since i got it jailbroken. and when i...


jailbreak is called that because it 'breaks' phones It is the worst possible thing to do to your phone, you need a new one. It involves altering the phones operating system at firmware level, but what the phone does when you switch it on, BEFORE iOs loads. You are stuck at pineapple stage and the phone has no idea what to do next.

Iphone got pineapple logo


Connect to a computer and do this to enter DFU mode and try to restore, be aware that everything on the phone may be lost:
-Turn phone off if possible -Hold power and home together for 10 secs -Release power but keep holding home until computer detects iPhone
Repeat a few times it can be hard to do the first time.

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


2g solution


3g solution

if it still gives you problems then you have a hardware issue, apple won't touch a jailbroken iphone so hopfully you have the apple care protection. Restore it to factory settings and try to take it in for service.
