    I'd like to introduce myself:

    I'm new here... My name is Jax, I am 26/f/ in Minnesota and 7 months preg w/ my 2nd child (1st girl :0) )

    I have an iPhone 3G 8GB and I'm waiting for my BF to send me my new iPhone 4!! Can't wait! In the mean time until it arrives, I really want to learn more about the phone I have and how to fix it myself (never been one to leave anything to anyone else... want to learn myself :0) )

    My current iPhone (3G) is jailbroken and unlocked, although I have AT&T, but last night it frizzled... My phone died and so I plugged it into my laptop (HP TouchSmart) and it didnt seem to register and automatically open my iTunes like usual... The screen of my iPhone kept flashing back and forth from the battery charging screen to the apple icon screen. Thinking maybe it was bc of my laptops low-ish battery, I went downstairs to my room to plug it into my wall charger. Kept it plugged in all night and when I woke up it was frozen on the apple screen...


    My ipod touch was jailbroken and it did a similar thing, and I ended up taking it back to the store since it was still under warrenty for a replacement, but my iPhone isnt under warrenty... I tried to restore it to factory settings through my sister's computer, but it wouldnt.

    HELP HELP HELP!!! IDK WHAT TO DO??!!

    I'd really like to be able to do this myself (with some help from you of course) bc my BF cant explain to me clearly what to do.

    I'm scared I might not find my thread again (I'm new here) so maybe the person who reads this and can help me, might be able to email me just letting me know, and I can try to find my way back to read what to do...

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate your help!

    How do I put it in restore mode?

    and what is "dfu?"

    Pardon my ignorance, but I'm ridiculously new to all of this...

    restore is easier
    its simply restoring your whole device..as lonng as u have backed it up: (sync'd before) then you'll be right..
    to put into restore mode
    connect to computer
    Hold the home and power button..
    until the screen goes black...then release the power button..but not the home button until iTunes says its recognized in restore mode..

    DFU mode is Device Firmware Upgrade..
