    I was wondering if any one could give me some ideas on how to fix my phone. Currently when i turn it on I can only see a tiny horizontal bar of my screen is visible. I can not get the screen to respond to touch to unlock it and reset it. Trying to let it die now and recharge. PLEASE HELP?!

    1. Hold down the home and power button

    2. Once you see the apple logo, let go of both buttons and hold down the volume up button until you see your lockscreen.

    I'm not convinced the JB "broke" your screen.

    If the tip above does not work then pretty much anything else could lose the jailbreak status.

    My priority would be to not worry too much about the JB status and try all avenues including restoring it via iTunes.

    If it is unrecoverable by self troubleshooting then my next step would be the  store.

    Are you holding both down exactly at the same time for approx 30 seconds.

    Something like iExplorer might help you jar it out of that, maybe....been a while since I used it but it can toggle into out of DFU mode or something like that....

    More likely you have a hardware problem. Might need to open it up and disconnect the screen entirely and see what it does afterwards. (Opening the phone and disconnecting the battery is also a proven method to power down when buttons aren't responsive!)

    Some photos of your screen might help determine if you have a hardware issue.

    There is a very slight chance there is a software issue related to the screen. By any chance is the LCD/Digitizer in your phone a 3rd party replacement? I went around in circles on replacing a screen on my 4S once and I eventually discovered that the screens can actually require particularly firmwares on the phone to work properly.

    My instinct on this one says your screen and digitizer has physically failed. They are somewhat independent, so even if the image isn't displaying right the fact that you can't swipe to turn off suggests the touchscreen is bad as well.

    Just curious…Did you install the Upscale tweak and mess with screen resolution on your phone by any chance?

    • "This device isn't eligible for the requested build" Was given this message when I tried to restore it from recovery mode. Screen is 100% not visible not, can only tell slight brightness change when phone is on. Don't know what to do at all.

    Forget the jailbreak, download 9.2 IPSW for your iphone to your desktop and try DFU restore. If it doesn't help, then straight to Apple Store for replacement....

    That's OK :)...SHIFT is for Windows, OPTION is for MAc

    Try couple of times, but error 1 is usually hardware issue.....so, replacement it is.
