    All right, this is either a joke post, or buddy, you got a virus on the phone. How, I don't know, but you did it. I have never heard of Steve Jobs cartoons appearing on iPhones, much less speaking languages you don't recognize. Second of all, if you want real help, go back and edit that post so people can easily understand it (i.e. use proper English). If your English isn't that good, then search for a forum in your native language so you can get better help

    The cartoon is added by pwntool (im guessing you unlocked it) when the iphone is restoring. You can try restoring the iphone by entering in DFU mode, to do this:

    1. Connect iphone using USB cable to your comp.
    2. Hold the power and home button for 10 secs
    3. Release the power button but keep holding the home one for 10 secs more.

    The iphone should show up on itunes and now you can restore it.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks Juan
    I just did that. I used pnwed to restore and unlock-jailbrake the phone
    And now it works again!!!


    BTW Quincy, I hope from the bottom of my heart that you never find yourself in a situation were you need help, and instead of getting it receive a st... arrogant and not productive response like yours.

    Take care!

    Did anyone figure out why this happens?

    I have a 3g, updated to v2.1 last week, and re-jailbroken ~4 days ago. A friend of mine was messing around with my phone this morning, and put in the wrong password until the phone froze. I did a hard reset, and started seeing this SJ image shortly after seeing the pwnapple. Then the phone shuts down. I used QuickPwn to jailbreak it. Anyone figure out why this "glitch" is happening?
