We briefly mentioned using junk data to overwrite the iPhone's flash as a last-ditch method of securely clearing off your user data yesterday, and although we were half-joking, that's more or less your only option until Apple provides a proper secure erase feature. Security researcher Rich Mogull has helpfully laid out the steps for you, and they're basically what you'd expect: restore your iPhone, don't sync any personal data to it, and then manually transfer three different playlists large enough to fill the flash. Essentially you're doing a manual three-pass overwrite, which is pretty much exactly the long and tedious process it sounds like -- but we wouldn't dream of selling or giving away our iPhones (or any other phone with personal data on it) without struggling through it.

IPhone 5 went though the wash, so gutted. After a quick google i put it in a sealed bag of rice. Just taken it out n plugged it in and apple logo starts flashing. Does this mean there is hope n it is not...


If the Apple logo keeps flashing and never does anything, it is most likely stuck in a boot loop. You can try reinstalling the OS by connecting it to your computer, but if that doesn't work, the boot loop is most likely caused by a hardware failure.

How to format IPHONE3G.


Formatting an iPhone 3G will erase all the data on your phone, delete all your apps and reset your phone to factory settings. Formatting your phone is a good last resort if you're having software issues with your phone. Keep in mind that the format is permanent and any data irrecoverable.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1.Click the "Settings" icon.

2.Select "General."

3.Scroll to the bottom and select "Reset."

4.Select "Erase All Content and Settings." A warning message will display. Confirm your selection. The iPhone screen will turn off then show a "waiting" sign. After formatting is complete, the Apple logo will display and finally your formatted iPhone will reboot.

I dnt knw its nt starting it just show apple symbol n its nt getting switch off also nt even charging


I would first try doing a soft reset by pushing and holding both the power button and the home button at the same time, continue holding until the apple logo reappears, then wait to see if it boots up. If that doesn't work, try doing a restore by plugging into PC and clicking on restore in iTunes on your PC. If this doesn't resolve your problem, call 1-800-MYIPHONE to set up an appointment in an Apple store so a tech can repair your device. Hope this helps!

I reset my iphone 3g and now its been frozen for 2 days, it only shows start-up apple logo. please help!


Do a hard reset.
  1. Press-hold the Home button (big circle below the screen) and the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
  2. Continue holding both buttons (Ignore the "Slide to power off") until the iPhone shuts off and begins to restart.
  3. You may let go when you see the silver Apple logo.
  4. You have completed a hard reset successfully.
  5. Don't be alarmed that it takes quite a while to load from the Apple logo to the main screen. This is normal.
If this does not work, put into recovery mode and restore from itunes.
Step One
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.

Step Two
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

Step Three
As soon as the screen goes black release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

The iPhone will look like this:

My apple iphone was working fine but when i have erased all its setting and content its on a hang up mode and is still on process just showing the apple logo and cannot be switched on or off plz help....


By Holding the top button and the home button, you can force your iphone to reset.
Try this: -Hold the top button and the home button on the iphone until you see silver apple logo -When you see the silver apple logo, let go of the top button and keep holding down on the home button until you see a picture of a usb to plug into itunes. -plug into itunes and restore
-if an unknown restore error occurs, usually you may have to turn off firewall, check usb cables, try different computer
I hope this helps!
