How can i enable my disabled iphone without itunes

You'll need iTunes, and specifically your own computer- or you'll have to erase everything by putting it in recovery mode.

Here's how to do that:
  1. Disconnect all cables from your device.
  2. Turn off your device.
  3. Press and hold the Home button. While holding the Home button, connect your device to iTunes. If your device doesn't turn on automatically, turn it on.
  4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.
  5. iTunes will alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode.
  6. Click OK, then restore the device.

Cant update my iphone 4 (model mc609ll )

Perform a recovery-mode restoreIf your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is already showing the "Connect to iTunes" screen, please go to step 5.
  1. Connect your USB cable to your computer but not to the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch until step 3.
  2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
    • If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
  3. While pressing and holding the Home button down, connect the USB cable to the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The device should turn on.
  4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen. When this screen appears, you can release the Home button:
    If the image of a battery appears, let the device charge for at least ten minutes to ensure that the battery has some charge, and then start with step 2 again. If you don't see the Connect to iTunes screen, try these steps 1 through 4 again.
  5. iTunes should automatically open and display the following message:
    [img alt="Alert text: "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode..."" width="520" height="241" src="" data-hires="true">
    "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes."
    If iTunes not open after two minutes, please open iTunes yourself.
  6. Use iTunes to restore the device.

Do u need to keep ur data? if yes then u will need two different PCs/MACs to perform this?

get latest itune on both.
on one of the computer connect ur iphone and once connected to itune, right click on the iphone icon and select back up. All ur data is now backed up.

Now, Perform the steps below at ur own risk.
You will need to do the jailbreak again once upgrade done. keep in mind that the latest firmware iOS 4.0.1 can not be jailbroken and thus can not be unlocked.

Get ur phone in to restore mode by doing ,,
Turn off the iPhone comletely by sliding the red slider on the screen.
Open itunes on the other computer (not the same where u have backed up ur data)

Step 1
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone via USB.
Step 2
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
Step 3
Continue holding the both buttons until your iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.
Your iPhone screen will look like this:

Click OK on the small pop up.
Now, select resore button on the itunes screen and itunes will find the latest upgrade for ur phone and will show u the recommended upgrade in to a small pop up in less then 3mins.

and there u go, select ok and let the itunes perform the rest.

My iphone wont turn on , what will i do

put it in recovery mode
then restore it
here's how to be in recover mode:
Disconnect your iPhone and turn it off by holding the "Sleep/Wake" button for about five seconds and then sliding the red slider. If your iPhone is already off, there's no need to turn it on and then off again. Once it's off, press and hold the "Home" button and plug your iPhone into a Mac or PC with iTunes installed. Keep holding the "Home" button until you see a dock cable pointing to the iTunes icon. iPhones running older software will display a yellow triangle and text which says "Please Connect to iTunes". Once you see this image, you can release the Home button.

Open iTunes (if it's not already open) and you will be told that "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode." Click "OK" and you will be taken to the iPhone pane. Click "Restore" and you're done, it's that easy! Depending on the extent of your iPhone's ills, it may take some time to do a full restore. Once you're done, you should again have a perfectly working iPhone.
If this doesn't solve your problem, you may need to restore using DFU (Direct Firmware Upgrade) mode. To enter this mode, plug in your iPhone and turn it off. Hold down the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons for about twelve seconds. You'll briefly see the silver Apple logo and then your phone will appear to turn back off. Release the "Sleep/Wake" button but continue to hold the "Home" button until you see a message in iTunes stating that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Choose "Restore" and you should be fixed right up!
If this doesn't fix your problem, your iPhone may require a visit to the Genius Bar. You can find a local Apple Store and schedule an appointment at

My iphone is blocked and only i see on the screen the pineaple pi

I recommend restoring the old non-hacked firmware. To do this, you will need to put it in Recovery Mode, and then iTunes will ask to restore it.

1. Verify you have iTunes 7.5 or later. Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes.
2. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch.
3. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
4. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting USB cable. When you reconnect USB, the device should then power on.
*Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" or you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again.
5. Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
6.When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message.
*If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPhone and repeat steps 3-6.
7. Click OK, and restore device.
