Iphone 3gs stopped working. just shows apple logo then turns itself off


try irecovery or ireb to get it out
it can be found on ih8sonw

recommended : ireb, easyrecovery 2.5, tinu umbrella (use it just to kick it out of recovery loop)

if that doesnt solve the problem then restore the firmware through the itunes..
just connect it to itunes and it will detect it in recovery mode, if it doesnt then put your phone in DFU mode and then restore it.

the method to put it in DFU mode can be found on GOOGLE..

Ipone 3gs restore factory setting code?


How to Restore iPhone 3G to Factory Settings



Make sure you are on the screen that holds your Settings icon. That is the icon with gears pictured in it. Touch the Settings icon.

In the Settings menu, touch the line that says General. It also has a picture of gears.


Scroll down the General page and you will see a line that says Reset. Select Reset.


This screen will show you several options you can reset including setting, home screen, keyboard dictionary, network settings and location warning. However, to erase all data, you will select the line that says Erase All Content and Settings. When you select it, a box will pop up with a red button saying Erase iPhone. There is also a warning saying it will delete all media and data and will take up to an hour. Touch the red button and your iPhone will format itself back to factory settings.


Tips & Warnings


Back up all data you want to save on your computer.

YOU WILL LOSE ALL DATA!!!!!


Also,
To restore iPhone and reset the phone to default factory settings, follow these steps:

1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears.

iPhone Recovery Mode

3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven't.
4. Run and open iTunes if it's not already opened yet.
5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it's hardware related.

There is another mode called DFU mode which does not load the iBoot, and commonly used to downgrade the firmware and restore custom IPSW.

Iphone 3Gs 16gb Erase All content and settings problem


If your iPhone is jailbroken, it usually gets stuck.To fix it, make your phone go to DFU mode. Connect your phone to your PC or MAC and open up itunes. iTunes will detect your phone in DFU mode, then simply restore phone by following the instructions given from iTunes.

I shut down my iphone 3G and right adter thet turned it on. Now the white apple won't go away!


If this happens, you will need to put your iPhone in DFU(Device Firmware Update mode) mode which will restore your iPhone completely. Since you wont have any other option, you will have to go for this option or else your iPhone will remain in this bricked condition for ever.

easy steps-
  1. You need to first connect your Apple logo stuck iPhone to iTunes.
  2. And then hold the Home button and Power button at the same time for 10 seconds.
  3. After 10 seconds, release the Power button. Do not release Home button, keep holding the Home button another 10+ seconds. You will see a message in iTunes that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.
  4. Your iPhone is in DFU mode now. Click OK and click Restore button in iTunes.

Apple symbol stays on screen


Please try to reboot your iPhone by holding both the sleep/wake and Home buttons together for at least 10 seconds. If this does not work, you can do a DFU restore.

DFU restore can be done by plugging the phone into the sync cable and opening itunes. Then hold Home and Power for 7sec (until the screen blacks out) then at that point you release the power button but keep holding home. Keep holding it until you see itunes detect a phone in DFU mode. From there you can restore and then use the option to restore the phone from your latest itunes backup once the firmware has been restored.

I will appreciate your rating for this free question.

My i phone screen has gone dead. I tried oressing button on top and by doing that apple sign comes on screen but goes off after some time and again screen goes dead.


Youre iPhones problem is for some reason, its default settings are (too heavy) so put it into DFU mode and restore it. DFU mode = Hold the home button and the top button for 10 seconds then release the top button and wait...make sure its plugged into the computer or it wont work. wait until the computer and iTunes detects that its in DFU mode. Then restore it.

Iphone 3G Erase All content and settings problem


DFU means Device Firmware Update. If a restore using Recovery Mode doesn't work you will want to use DFU Mode as a last resort. When placing your iPhone into DFU Mode it does not load the OS before attempting the restore

For your convenience this tutorial is available in video format also. Click the Watch It button to view the tutorial!








To put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:

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
After exactly 10 seconds 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 screen will remain black like this:

NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!
