IPHONE HELP IPHONE HELP IPHONE HELP PLEASE HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!! I bought an unlocked iphone for use here in Australia. Firmware 1.4 It was working fine until I downloaded some applications from installer. All of a sudden on the screen the ONLY thing I can see is the itunes logo asking for a cable connection. I have tried to rectify through restoring factory settings in itunes after itunes has identified that the iphone is in recovery mode, but I can only get as far as the "The iphone cannot be restored. An unknown error occurred. Error (6) " I have tried restoring it through DFU mode but no matter what I do it keeps going back to this code error (6) and will only display the itunes/ cable logo on the screen. I am running Windows Vista Please help me someone. Lauryn

I read on another site that this is because of a bad nand ram chip.
I solved this error by putting a low current through the chip..(ipod 1gen battery) you have to expose the chip and using the + and - wires touch them to the 4 contacts you can see on the right hand side .
reasemble the phone and try going though the restore process..if it fails the first time try again.. make sure the the logic board is out of the housing so the board is not getting power.
It took me a couple of goes...and it work twice so not a fluke!.

You should jailbreak your phone, maybe the phone career is not compatible or something, if you want to jailbreak it just go to, download the software and then just click on make it rain, that will solve all your problems, by the way... you have to take off the sim card before you do this.

My iphone is only for emergency call only!

The easiest solution is to put in a sim card of the carrier you bought the iPhone from. If you can't do that you need to jailbreak and CID unlock the iPhone.

Without knowing which model, firmware or any details at all (as you provided none). I can only refer you to a tutorial on how to jailbreak an iPhone:

On the 3.0 firmware:
On the 2.x.x firmware:

Iphone won't recognize sim

Your phone must be jail broken and unlocked to use non AT&T sim card. Be sure you have correctly installed redsn0w and ultrasn0w unlocker. If you have recently updated your phone that will undo your jailbreak and unlock. You will need to reapply them for the version of your iPhone OS if they are available.

Iphone showing no service

If it was bought unlocked for under $700 then it was unlocked illegally after updgrading to 3.0 it is locked again. If you upgrade to any of appples unpdates your phone will be locked each time and you will have to wait for an unlock solution to be released each time. Currently there is no way to unlock the 3g under 3.0 firmware only the 2g is unlockable to the 3.0...I know case i have one. Jailbreaking and unlocking are different.You have to downgrade your firmware to unlock it. Restore your phone via iTunes using one of your old backups, you should be fine.

Jailbreaking is possible. But not software unlocking. For that you must buy something like a Turbo Sim. For jailbreaking try the program called Quickpwn
