    Sorry for the weird question, But I need to convince someone that my iPhone is officially Bricked, Or Dead.

    It dosen't have to be Bricked, Just like a screen full of weird mumbo jumbo words and letters would do. Anything that would make this iPhone look bricked. If there's a function similar to DFU or Restore mode, Please share.

    Anything at all.

    That, Or if you could cut off the communication between the iPhone and iTunes when it's plugged in.

    Again, Sorry for the weird questions.

    that sounded stupid for a minute but it works for touches and turns phones into zibricks so yeah excellent idea

    Can I recover from a ZiBrick?

    If I do decide to intentionally brick my iPhone with ZiPhone?

    try to pwn with iPod firmware, i did the opposite with my touche and tere was 0% chance of recovery, that was of course back with the old pwnage.

    my story...

    So i tried using redsn0w today using various iphone and ipod firmwares on my 3g ipod touch... seems as though there is no possible way to brick....

    im wondering if using the magnet on the ipod will work being as its flash memory (?)
    and also if the magnet would damage the screen appearing to have physical damage, which would be bad.

    if anyone has anyother ideas or suggestions please respond...

    p.s. i also tried installing PhoneDisk and also SSHing into to delete all the files on the ipod but that didnt yield any better results... as i was unable to delete many files that i didnt have the appropriate permissions to delete... I even tried using FileBuddy to gain more permissions but didnt gain anything....

    so far every attempt has been solved in dfu mode with restore.
