How do I restore my iPhone 5 with my icloud account password?

Hi, make sure you have a backup of all of your files in iCloud first and to do this from your iPhone, just go to Settings >> iCloud >> Storage & Backup >> then tap "Backup Now"..............You can now do a restore, via the Settings >> General >> Reset >> Erase All Content and Settings (This only applies if your iPhone is not Jailbroken, if your iPhone is Jailbroken, there's a different procedure for that) Once you're done with the restore, "Setup your iPhone" screen will appear and just tap on the "Restore from iCloud backup".

I mistakenly restored my iphone 3gs's ios to 6.1.3 but it does not work now how can i downgrade my iphone's ios to appropriate ios?

Just google the stand alone IPSW file. they highest you would be able to go is 4.2.1 Find the file, download it to your computer, then go into iTunes and right click on check for downloads on the summary page and it will let you specify which .ipsw file you want to use to downgrade the SW. If the device was jailbroken there is a chance the device may be bricked for good now just so you know. Good luck.

I erased all content and settings on my jailbroken iphone 3g and now its stuck on the start up screen

Plug the iphone into your computer and restore the phone using itunes. If the computer won't recognize the phone put it in DFU mode by doing the following.
1. Hold the lock/unlock button for 10 seconds. 2. Continue holding the lock/unlock button and also hold the home button for 10 seconds. 3. Release the lock/unlock button and continue holding the home button for 10 seconds.
After the connect to itunes screen appears on the phone, plug it in and attempt to restore again.

Jailbroken iPhone battery meter goes bezerk during charging

Disable your theme and turn on then off then on (toggle it) the battery % in the settings. The theme can sometimes do screwy things to your phone. I would recommend removing winterboard all together and seeing if that solves the problem. Worse case you will need to restore your iphone. If it comes to that be sure you take screen shots of each app page by holding down the lock and home button for a second or two until you see the flash. They have apps that "backup" your jailbreak apps, but honestly I do not trust them and if you do a fresh install after the restore it will for the better.

A few things to note if you do the restore option:

1. Backup your phone in itunes before you restore it.
2. You will need to jailbreak it again... but it gives you a good excuse upgrade the iphone OS.
3. iTunes backup with not back up any cracked apps you may or may not have installed so be sure you have the files somewhere.
4. Test your battery issue while the phone is not jailbroken after the restore. This will be a great time to take it to the apple store if it is still acting up :)

Good Luck!

My iphone is disabled

If you have a normal iPhone, non-jailbroken, the easiest way is to restore it back in iTunes.  Connecting it up, on the General page of iTunes, has an option to restore the phone.  If you had made a backup copy previously, this will restore the phone back to the previous data and software.  If you haven't made a backup, it will restore it to factory status, i.e. all data wiped clean, at the latest version status of software.
If you have jailbroken the phone, all bets are off.  Since there are so many different ways of jailbreaking the phone, some work, some don't, some can be recovered, some can't.  When you have so many variables, it makes it almost impossible to diagnose and try to help you out.
Hope that this helps.

Can't Restore iphone

I don't know if you are still having this problem but I have a suggestion, instead of using Ziphone to jailbreak your iPhone use Quickpwn. This is a much safer and you'll have a better chance of getting your iPhone jailbroken. It may be the firmware that you  are trying to install.
