    Repair iPhone 3GS

    Need some help please guys...

    I think i managed to brick my 3GS whilst trying to Jailbreak it. Tried numerous things to fix it but reall struggling to make it enter DFU mode. iTunes no longer recognises it and it doesn't always want to switch on now!

    Any suggestions on a reliable fix please?

    have you tried holding down home and power till it apears back in itunes ? ( about 20 - 30 secs )

    I've tried that but 9/10 times it won't be recognised by itunes, the other 1/10 times iTunes comes up with an error?

    My iPod touch did this before. Google it, there's a solution but I can't remember what it is

    I've been googling for past hour now but keeping going round in circles lol

    whatever the error number is- type it into google and there will be a soloution to it.

    i remember doing this to my iphone after updating the baseband and i think i had to get a custom recovery image i think

    I vaguely remember having to connect to iTunes, press power and home until the apple logo appears and disappears and just leave it. It can take hours to do it's stuff though

    ah sounds likely...i tried updating my baseband. How did you get a custom recovery image?

    to be honest i cant remember, i remember it was a pain in the **** tho lol


    it was something like this forums.macrumors.com/sho…509

    you will need to download an older or customer firmware..you open itunes..think you hold shift and select update. you should be able to pick your custom one...think thats it...been a long time since i **** something up
