    Hi guys,

    I have a 2g Iphone, JB with 3.0.

    Everything was working great untill I went into the Appstore, and tried to run an update for the Facebook App.

    My battery died halfway through the process.

    It wouldn't boot up again.

    I left it charging the whole night.

    Now, it will only boot to the Apple logo, stays there for about 10-15 seconds, and then turns off.

    I can switch it into Recovery Mode, and DFU Mode, and my PC (Running XPSP3) makes the USB connected sound when I do put it into those modes.

    Now, I know that normally, a simple restore would be in order.

    But theres one tiny problem...

    My first child was born 2 weeks ago, and the only fotos I have of this occasion are currently on my phone.


    My questions are:

    1 - Is it possible to copy these pics off my Iphone somehow, being just in RMode or DFUMode?

    2 - If not, if I make a restore, will my old files still be there? (I havent synched in a long time with itunes so the pics weren't backed up)


    I have tried to connect with IRecover, and this is the information that it gives me:

    C:\LibUSB>irecovery -s
    iRecovery - Recovery Utility
    by wEsTbAeR-- and Tom3q

    Got USB
    C:\LibUSB>irecovery -s
    iRecovery - Recovery Utility
    by wEsTbAeR-- and Tom3q

    Got USB

    and here is what happens when I type in "printenv":

    (Recovery) iPhone$ printenv

    build-style = "RELEASE"
    build-version = "iBoot-596.24"
    config_board = "m68ap"
    loadaddr = "0x9000000"
    boot-command = "fsboot"
    idle-off = "true"
    boot-device = "nand0"
    boot-partition = "0"
    boot-path = "/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kernelcaches/kernelcache.s5l8900x"
    display-color-space = "RGB888"
    display-timing = "optC"
    P backlight-level = "46"
    P bootdelay = "0"
    P filesize = "33550336"
    P platform-uuid = <DATA>
    P obliteration = "Enabling auto boot"
    P autoboot = "true"
    image-version = "0x3"
    framebuffer = "0xfd00000"
    secure-boot = "0x1"
    (Recovery) iPhone$ printenv^C

    I have tried doing both these processes:

    setenv auto-boot true


    setenv auto-boot true

    but it doesnt seem to help.

    I know a lot of people say "I really need to get my data back!!!!"

    I don't really NEEEED to get my pics back, but I would LOVE to be able to save the pictures of my boy's first day on this planet.

    If I missed anything out, please let me know, and if you can help out I would be extremely grateful.


    Note: While in DFU or Recovery, the phone seems to reboot automatically after 10-15 mins. (These reboot happen randomly)

    Will it stay on the Apple logo if it is plugged in? If so can you SSH into it?

    Try doing a backup of it through iTunes; if it makes a backup the pictures will be in the backup file.
