Iphone doesn't connect to computer

Ok so I have an unlocked iphone, firmware 1.1.4. i used ziphone to unlock it if that means anything. so all of a sudden my computer doesn't detect my phone anymore. it also doesn't charge when plugged in to the wall charger. the only way i can now get it to charge is to plug it in to my stereo system. it worked fine last night, and the only other app i installed was iphysics and some games for it, but i charged it after i installed it and that worked fine. someone please help, I really don't want to put my phone in recovery mode cuz if that doesn't work than i can't get it out of recovery mode, so thats sort of a last resort. also i can't take it to the apple store since its jailbroken, so i'm kinda stuck here

    Hi I also have 1.1.4. firmware and I have jailbroken and activated my iphone with ziphone.  After doing this I connected my iphone to my MacBook Pro with leopard and my computer doesn't recognize it.  So by this time I don't really care if all my stuff is erased on my iphone.  So I put it in recovery mode and try to restore it on my computer but a message pops up and it says there is an error 1604.  Will someone please help me?  All I want to do is to restore my iphone back to normal.

    I have the same problem. Got firmware 2.1 though. Also Jailbreaked and now my computer doesnt recognize it. I can charge it with a wall charger. I think it all started when I started adding apps from Cydia, but Im not sure since I dont connect it to my computer that much.

    Just looking around hoping someone could help me with the same problem and then I managed to fix it myself J.

    Not sure if it's the case for all but I just removed some app regarding USB drive or phone memory. Problem solved then :)

    Some of those apps prevent me from connecting iPhone to PC

    Cheers,

Try a firmware restore in recovery mode or DFU mode, a guide on how to do that ishere: iPhone Firmare restore. If that fails (if the iPhone does not even connect in recovery or DFU) it looks like you need a new dock connector module which in theory you can replace yourself. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to have somebody else do it for you there are third party iPhone Repair Services.

IPhone won't do anything!


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)

Can't restore to my iphone from 2.0 to 1.1.4


Try this tijanotu:

You will need these files/program:

1. Ziphone 3.0 program

2. Ziphone Firmware Files 1.1.2, AND 1.1.4. To get these files open Ziphone 3.0 then Click Help and Support, then middle box on top of page Web Links Firmware Files 1.1.2 and 1.1.4 (to make it easier to find I always save everything to the desktop)
3. Kiphone http://www.iclarified.com/entry/comments.php?page=1&enid=1536#commentsanchor

Not sure if all these steps are needed for success, I am just putting it all down becuase this is exactly what I did to get my cell signal back.

First, I uninstalled itunes 7.7.

Then I downloaded and installed itunes 7.5. At this point you will have to rename your itunes libray folder. Instructions are here: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1504

Next I downgraded the iphone to 1.1.2 using the link above.
Downgrading steps:
Connect phone to computer
Open Ziphone 3.0
Click on Prepare for Upgrade (this will put iphone into DFU mode)
Now you have to restore using itunes 7.5 (which will open up as soon as the iphone goes into DFU mode.)
In itunes hold down SHIFT key (FOR WINDOWS) while pressing RESTORE. This will allow you to browse for the firmware file 1.1.2 you previously downloaded. Click on the 1.1.2 restore file and hit OPEN. This will begin the restoring process.
You will probably get an error code noting the restore wasn't successful. Ignore this unless the error code number is in the 1600's.
After this I tried to jailbreak my iphone using Ziphone 3.0 but wasn't successful so I:
Repeated the restore process but his time restoring to 1.1.4. Got the same error saying that restore wasn't successful, which I ignored.
Then I closed itunes, went into Ziphone 3.0 (iphone still connected to computer) and clicked on Do it all!
Jailbreak worked fine except I still had no cell signal.
To fix this I went to:
Iclarified, (the BEST iphone website *******!!) Got Kiphone patch (see Number 3 above) installed it and got my cell service back.

Help error 20


i had the same problem what i did was installed firmware 2.0 on my iphone but i could not unlock it what i did then was uninstalled itunes 7.7 and installed itunes 7.5. Then i put my iphone into Recovery mode , which can be done by pressing both the home button and the power button down until the iphone turns off and then once it had turned off i released my finger from the power button still holding down the home screen button. Then once itunes had recognised it was in recovery mode i held down shift and clicked on restore at the same time. for this u need have the iphone firmware 1.1.4 download u can find this by going to http://www.iphoneatlas.com/2008/02/26/iphone-software-114-released/
and clicking on 165 MB standalone download. Once u have downloaded this select it in the menu that will appear by doing by selecting restore whilst pressing shift at the same time. once this process has completed any errors apart from 1600, 1601, 1602 and 1603 are bad and u should redo this process any others can be ignored. Now to unlock,jailbreak and activate your phone u will need to use ZiPhone which can be downloaded from www.ziphone.org. once u have downloaded and installed it make sure your iphone is connected and recognized by itunes click do it all. once this process is completed your iphone is ready for use!

I would restore the phone to the latest firmware (1.1.3)
download ziphone http://www.ziphone.org/
run ziphone -j to jailbreak and download anysim in installer.app

this will get your phone back to factory new, jailbroken, and unlocked with anysim.

I just bought an unlocked iphone yesterday it was okay but i accidentally restore it, and now it does not recognize the sim card how can i use it again?


You will need to jailbreak your phone and unlock it again.

restore your phone to 1.1.3
download ZiPhone (http://www.ziphone.org/)
run ziphone -j
(check for options to unlock your phone)
If you don't have options there, you can install "anysim" from the "installer" app that will appear on any jailbroken iphone
