    hi, hello.
    good day to you all.
    i had my iphone4 for about a month now, and i've always wanted to jailbreak it, and i finally did it last night.
    i was applying on a theme that i really liked and it worked.
    but the font didn't change, so i was fiddling with the fonts and i crashed it.
    it was bricked (screen was black and had that apple sign on it, and then kept making noises, and was also turning on and off...)
    then after few hours, i restored it.
    oh! and also a question here. i restored it but it only restored contacts, messages photos only. no music no apps, no videos. :|
    i'm not too fuss about them, but it would be great to have them back.

    well, my main question is that i used limera1n the first time i hacked my iphone, and i wanted to hack it again. i ran limera1n and did what i was suppose to do. it came up with the box that said, 'done' but my iphone was once again bricked (this time my screen had the itunes sign and the usb thing saying connect to itunes blahblah) and so i had to restore it all over again.

    so my question is, is it not possible to re-jailbreak after restoring a jailbroken iphone?
    or do i have to use a diffrent program?
    it would be lovely if my problems could be answered.
    have a good day you all.

    1st stop saying bricked wrong term that means it's a brick (useless). what firmware version are you restoring? do you have shsh blobs saved??? you can always add music a photo's anytime in itunes. lets try to get you back 1st.

    By reading your post, it's seen like you have restored your phone and therefore, it has the latest firmware which is 4.2.1.

    Limera1n only work for firmware 4.1. So, it you use limera1n on your restore phone, it will not work. You need to use greenpois0n to jailbreak it.

    Congratulation for bricking an iPhone. It's been a while since i know people brick an iPhone. If it's bricked then no one can help but to buy a new iPhone. I can pay you 10AUD for your bricked iPhone.

    Cheers

    Glad it wakes up.

    Iphone is a tough phone and it is hardly bricked unless you stick it into a running microwave for a while. :)

    oh. i thought it worked out..
    but it didn't. i tried using greenpois0n cos i used limera1n the first time,
    but it keeps failing to jailbreak!
    is it because i've already jailbroken and restored it again?
    why would it not work?
    i made my sister's phone work, but not mine!
    ahhh. :'(

    Let's start all over again,

    What do you have?
    Firmware version?
    baseband?

    what do you want to achieve? only jailbreak or unlocked as well.
