    Same issue. Installed latest version of itunes on computer (7.6 I believe), and restored the iphone. Used ziphone to unlock a new out of box iphone purchased 4-28-08 . Phone hangs and states "BSD root:1mcl0, major 2, minor 0" over and over, and am unable to communicate via any ziphone commands.. Prior to hanging, it runs through a series ending with



    AppleMRVL860x Hardware details:

    Firmware loaded

    Firmware Version: 8.100.3.p65 (ox41086c03)

    I/O Version 0x0002

    Hardware Version 0x0011

    Mac address 001f5b59cb9a



    The PC computers (tried 2 different ones) do not indicate a device is connected. Cannot get itunes to see the device either. Can only turn the iphone off by pressing the "off" button and "home" button.

    just plug the iphone back into the computer in recovery mode (hold home button while plugging in cable) and use the action you want on ziphone..! also i found out that it didnt work the first time because i was on an old firmware(1.1.2), when i selected "do it all" it only activated the phone but didnt jailbreak or unlock it.i upgraded to 1.1.4 while the phone was in recovery mode and every thing is working fine now.

Great news!

Mine seems to keep repeating "BSD root:1mcl0, major 2, minor 0" over and over. How long did you wait for it to "stop working"?

Also, as I said my phone doesn't appear to be communicating with the PC or itunes. Did you have that problem?

How to jailbreak an IPhone/Ipod touch


What is iPhone Jailbreak?In short, Jailbreak is the process of hacking an iPhone to free it from Apple restrictions.
Because the iPhone is far from flawless as Apple created it, thousands of iPhone users have flocked to Jailbreak in search of iPhone changes and improvements. iPhone has been held back by limited customizability, text message privacy issues, and a lack of multitasking capabilities. But Jailbreak can solve all of these problems with apps and fixes available in Cydia and Installer.
Cydia and Installer are the unofficial "App Stores" of the Jailbreak world. Developers create apps and tweaks and different utilities and upload them to these package managers, which organize everything into categories. The differences between Cydia and the App Store are the lack of an app approval process, and the lack of access limits on the iPhone software - i.e. you can do things Apple did not design the iPhone software to do.
Why Jailbreak iPhone?
  1. No restrictions. Want a custom wallpaper on your home screen? Custom icons for your apps? Internet tethering? A category system for organizing your apps? The ability to hide native iPhone apps you don't use? You can do all of this and more with Jailbreak, as iSmashPhone describes in ten reasons to Jailbreak your iPhone. As one of my readers recently noted, Jailbreak can make all your iPhone wishes come true.
  2. To join the subculture. Sick of Apple's stranglehold on the iPhone? Those who Jailbreak iPhone belong to a movement of people who demand more from their iPhones. And they're not gonna let Apple stop them. Beat the system: Jailbreak your iPhone.
  3. Unlock iPhone. To unlock your iPhone and use it on any carrier, you must first Jailbreak your iPhone. Some of the Jailbreak solutions below also allow you to unlock the iPhone, though unlocking is generally beyond the scope of this tutorial.
Why NOT Jailbreak iPhone?
  1. The folks at Apple know what they are doing. They have not enabled multasking - the ability for apps to run in the background, simultaneously - most likely because it is a huge battery drain. By controlling the user experience, Apple ensures that your iPhone "just works," and you don't have to worry about managing battery life or any other technical details.
  2. Jailbreak could (maybe?) brick your iPhone. "When someone develops something for an Apple product and that development isn’t sanctioned by Apple, you run the risk of it not working as it should, conflicting with the device itself, or just all-around bricking that iPhone," warns Chris Pirillo, who prefers not to Jailbreak his iPhone because "my iPhone just works already." But I have never heard of Jailbreak completely ruining an iPhone. The consensus at this forum seems to be that the chance is "extremely slim."
  3. Every iPhone update from iTunes disables Jailbreak. Every time Apple comes out with an update for iPhone, they find a way to prevent hackers from cracking the code again. Hackers then scramble to Jailbreak the iPhone again and release the new methods. That means if you like to download Apple's iPhone updates, you are going to have to figure out each time how to Jailbreak your iPhone yes again. Do you really want to play this cat and mouse game?
  4. Jailbreak might increase your risk of getting a virus on your iPhone. The only two iPhone viruses ever reported have spread across iPhones that have been Jailbroken. That's not to say the iPhone platform as Apple built it is totally secure. In fact, some say compromising an iPhone's security is "child's play" (i.e. easy).
  5. Jailbreak voids your iPhone warranty. If your iPhone is bricked because of Jailbreak, or if your iPhone has another problem and it happens to be Jailbreaked, your warranty becomes void. I once saw a sign at the Genius bar of The Falls, Miami Apple Store that warned customers not to Jailbreak iPhones or they would void their warranties. Harsh.

My wifi wont turn on my iphone 4S why


common problem with iphone 4s. Means your wifi chip is disconnected from circuit board or defective. Some small iphone shops fix it by resoldering, but under some conditions it may happen again. High/low temperatures, drops and so on. If phone is still under warranty - apple will replace it free.

I have radio app on Iphone 5 and cannot turn it off


try resetting the phone. Press the on / off button and the home button, till the apple loge comes on. After about one minute switch it on again.
Perhaps you then should reinstall the radio app, so it won't happen again.

Hi !! When depressing the camera+ icon it blinks and returns to it's stationary position


When an app won't launch it could be there is a bug in the app itself. Check the App Store if there's an update available.

Sometimes it helps to delete the app and install it again. Most of the time it works again.

If that doesn't work, perform a soft reset of your iPhone by pressing the ON/OFF button on top of your iPhone AND the round home button under your screen simultaneously until your iPhone shuts down. Thurn it on again by pressing the ON/OFF button on top of your iPhone, unlock, enter PIN and or access code and thy to launch the app.

I hope my advise will solve your problem.

You can try closing the app, and reopen the app again.

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
