Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
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
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.
