I tried to jailbreak my iPhone 3G earlier. No go. Not sure why, it just looped at the Apple logo while the software, pwnage, declared happily all was well. It wasn’t well. So now what. After a google I found some easy to follow instructions on how to recover your iPhone and get it working again if it appears to be bricked. So here we go:
Recovering your iPhone
You need –
iTunes installed and working (Windows or Mac)
iPhone USB connector cable
A bust iPhone
Nice to have –
A backup of your iPhone from before you tried jailbreaking it.
- Make sure your iPhone is NOT plugged into your computer, run iTunes.
- Press and hold the top button for a few seconds, hold the home (bottom) button, now wait for your phone to turn off and keep holding the home button.
- Connect your iPhone to the computer with iTunes running. Keep holding home until the connect/ed to iTunes graphics come up.
That’s it, now follow the onscreen instructions from iTunes. This will recover your iPhone. Be careful out there kids!
