    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

    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?

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.

Iphone asking to be activated no orig sim

It sounds like the handset is iCloud locked (find my iPhone hasn't been turned off). This happens too many second hand phones, the previous owner isn't aware of this or u have bought a stolen phone?
If you know the previous owner they would know the apple ID and ID password to activate it, after that you would have to do a reset the phone.
Good luck

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 (
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
