    hi....

    i just want to know if what is happening to me is something that can be fixed....

    my phone froze so i turned it off....but ever since i did that the iphone tries to turn on but then it kinda freezes on the apple and then the "hour glass" gets stuck on the screen and then turns off again....and the same thing happens over again..

    i am at work and i have no way to try and restore it until tomorrow morning....

    is this something that i can fix with a restore...or should i start looking at other phones????


    tya....

    I had the same problem and a restore worked.

    Use the wall connector and plug the phone into a wall jack. That will charge it pretty quickly. Then hook it up to the pc.

    thank you guys for your solutions...

    thankfully i was able to put it in in FUD mode and i did a full restore as a new phone so i basically lost everything....

    but that is the price for having a jailbreak phone i guess

    You shouldn't have to charge or DFU it. You can force the phone into recovery mode by powering it completely off then plugging the phone into your computer while holding down the home button w/o iTunes up. Just keep holding the home button til the connect to iTunes screen appears, then open iTunes and restore away.
