    Hi all,
    1st of i realise theres already 100000 threads on this issue but im just hoping more ppl see this 1, then mods can merge with another :)

    So, my iphone is running 4.1 JBd with greenpoison
    Sunday night the battery died, and Monday i tried charging it but nothing happened. It just stays at the silver apple logo. Iv forced restarted it a few times but makes no dif. Iv put it in DFU mode a few times aswell.

    Only once did i get the itunes>>>usb logo on my screen, so i connected it to itunes, but the only option it gave me was to restore and upgrade to 4.2.1 which i dont want to do. I want to stay on 4.1

    How can i get the phone runnin again on 4.1? i still have my apps saved in pkgbackup when i upgraded to 4.1 (hopefully anyway). Do i need to re-JB using GPs DFU mode thing?

    Iv never used TinyUmbrella b4 this so i cant use that to kick it out of recovery mode (buttons are unclickable)

    Thanks for any help (might need to dumb it down tho, due to my sig haha ):)

    ^thanks for reply, but i sorted it just as u posted lol

    i downloaded a 4.1 ispw file. opened itunes and resored to that. it failed, giving me some error msg. phone was left with intues>>usb logo
    i opened TU and exited recovery mode thru there, now im back to a working phone :)
    i have no contacts tho :mad: and obv gonna have to spend time JBing etc

    edit> restored with a backup i had on itunes from last month when i upgraded to 4.1
    all good now :)
    gonna backup once a week ( or every 2) from now on tho, just incase
