My itune 8 GB got hang up after i put it on for charging ... screen shows only white.. cant turn off n on... need help please

You will need to perform a hard reboot. You can do this by pressing the home key, the one on the bottom of the iphone just below the screen and also holding down the power button until the screen goes black, you should then see the system reboot.

My iphone turned off and wont turn back on. i've tried holding the home button and the button at the top but nothing will work. when i plug it into the charger on the wall the apple symbol appears. then...

1. Connect your iPhone to iTunes.
2. Hold the Home button and the Power button at the same time for 10 seconds.
3. After exactly 10 seconds, release the Power button but keep holding the Home button for 10 seconds or until iTunes pops up a message saying that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. At this point, click OK, then click "Restore" in iTunes.

My iphone shows only white screen when i try to power up

try this solution...
1. Put phone into Recovery mode (NOT DFU)

While the phone is off, hold down the Home button and immediatly plug it into your computer. Or else.
2. From a command prompt (Start>Run>"cmd"), change to the directory where you extracted irecovery, and enter irecovery -s followed by:
1. setenv boot-args 2
2. setenv auto-boot false
3. saveenv
4. /exit

Keep this window open for use later on!
3. Run greenpois0n - it will guide you to enter DFU mode, then it will stop on a white screen after you click "Jailbreak".

It should say "Jailbreak Complete!" and NOT "Jailbreak Failed!" next to the progressbar at the bottom.
4. Extract the iBSS from your custom PwnageTool image (firmware.ispw/Firmware /dfu/iBSS.BoardID.RELEASE.dfu) into your irecovery folder.

You can use WinRAR or another ZIP extractor to do this. IPSW files are really just ZIP files!
5. At a command prompt: irecovery -f iBSS

iBSS should be replaced with the name of the iBSS that you just extracted from the pwnagetool image - ie iBSS.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu
6. At a command prompt: irecovery -s
1. setenv boot-args 0
2. saveenv
3. go image decrypt 0x41000000
4. go jump 0x41000040
5. /exit

At the "go jump" point your device should appear to reboot. Whether it goes back to a white screen or shows the Connect to iTunes screen depends on the firmware image used.
7. Restore your PwnageTool cooked or CFW firmware from iTunes.

My iphone 3gs screen went white. looked up solutions online and it said to push the sleep/wake button and the home button for at least 10 sec. i did, however the red slide bar NEVER shows up??? so i cant...

Hold the power button for 3 seconds and without releasing the power button, push and hold the home button and continue holding both buttons until you see the apple logo, once the phone goes off, if it doesn't come back on by it's self, then just power it on as you normally would.

Iphone will not restart evon thoughthe apple

Turn phone off, then power on holding home and power buttons at same time. After 10 seconds release power but continue to hold home for another 10-20 seconds and the screen may go black but you will be in DFU recovery mode. Use iTunes to recover phone.

How to edit my contacts on my iphone

On your iphone touch contacts, then touch the contact you want, then touch edit at the top right of screen. Edit your info and then touch done at the top right of screen. Next open up itunes and then plug your USB cord up to the iphone and computer ports and wait for the ipod to show up under the devices on the left side of the screen. Then click on the ipod icon that shows up under devices at the left of the screen. Click on the info tab at the far right on top. Make sure the box is checked that says "Sync Address Book Contacts" Underneath that heading click on sync all contacts. Then click on Sync at the bottom right of the screen. Give the system a few minutes to do its thing and it will tell you on the computer screen when it is done syncing.

IPhone bottom edge only allows slide functions.

Try a hard reset on the iphone. Hold don both the sleep/wake button at the top right and your home button at the same time. Continue to hold both buttons for about 20-30 seconds (do not slide to power off) until you see a white apple appear. Let go once you see the apple log appear, wait for phone to power cycle back on. If that doesn't work, try a restore. You must connect to itunes, choose restore as new. If it doesn't work after that, you'll need to get a replacement.

My apple iphone USB Device Not Recognize what will

Go to and download and install itunes, then reconnect the phone. If you already have itunes do this, but realize this will clear the info from your iphone, but if you have the info in itunes, it will sync back anyway. So just know, this does a factory reset:

Turn iphone off by holding power button on top left and sliding the red bar to shutdown.

Now, take the usb cable and have it not connected to the computer, but connect it to your iphone, so now you have the usb cable just connected to the iphone which is completely off.

Now, hold down the circle button on the iphone, and keep it held down. Then insert the usb cable into the computer, while still holding the button down. After a minute or two, you will get a screen on the iphone with a white usb wire pictured on the screen, and if you did it right, the connection should then pop up on windows. After you do the restore, you can then use itunes and plug in the usb like normal, all should be fine.

good luck!

Iphone...cydia...won't turn on/off

You will have to restore in iTunes. Charge your phone and hook it up with itunes open, if itunes doesn't see it then hold homescreen and power together for 6 seconds and release the power but hold homescreen until itunes see's the phone then restore it.sometimes you get lucky and the phone starts when itunes sees it. If not restoring should get you going.

Iphone will not turn on after restore

Get the USB cord to connect the iPhone to the computer and start iTunes but do not connect the iPhone yet. Hold the home button and on/off button together for 5 sec as the iphone is booting (apple logo appears on iphone screen). The iPhone will then turn off (black screen, Apple logo disappears). Hold down the home button and then, as you keep holding it, plug in the USB cord. The Iphone should now turn on, the apple logo should appear. After 7-10 sec a usb connector symbol should appear on the screen. You are now in recovery mode. The iphone should connect to iTunes and let you restore. If the restore is not successful you may have a hardware issue (def. logic board). There is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iphone if you want to attempt a self-repair, parts are easily available on Ebay.
