    Hi, i have my iphone running on a tethered jailbreak from snowbreeze, but i could not restore it... restoring on itunes requires a reboot of my iphone, but my iphone is tethered and thus makes my iphone timeout giving an error... if i start my phone in recovery mode then press restore in itunes, it will still timeout and give an error for some reason...

    please help me on how to restore my iphone, i dont mind if my jailbreak would be gone, step by step instruction is appreciated. i'm also not good with abbreviations... thanks!

    Put your iPhone in DFU mode (google) then restore. Shouldn't receive an error.

    hi there, thanks for replying. i have tried to restore starting from dfu mode, but when i restore, my iphone screen lights up at the "preparing iphone for restore" stage(but black blank screen) then after 20 seconds or so, itunes gets a error 23...?

    from research, i found that error 23 is most likely a baseband error or problem, but even so, i believe i should still be able to restore? thanks for any replies!

    hi there thanks for your reply. no i dont have any softwares that will interfere with my restoring. i have turned off security programs on my pc, and i have been able to restore other versions using this pc.(with another iphone)

    ... from what i have been observing, the error seems to be caused by itunes starting up my iphone from dfu mode, but my iphone is unable to start up it seems... (only black blank, but lighted, screen)

    i'm using 6.1.3 version. my iphone is perfectly usable now, but it has a wi-fi/bluetooth problem... baseband is shown as blank, wifi is greyed out, bluetooth is 00:00:00:00... very weird indeed.
