    This isn't jailbreak related. The phone was in use on a call when the battery completely died, and now the phone won't come out of recovery mode. I've tried Tiny Umbrella but it still loops. I've also got iRecovery but my command line knowledge is limited and I'm stuck on a couple of steps (terminal says "setenv: command not found"). From memory it was running iOS 5 when it died (it's not my phone, I'm helping a mate out).

    I've been following the instructions on this page:

    There is nothing on the phone that needs to be retained, this is only being repaired so it can be gifted to a family member.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Actually I'm stuck on the first one; typing iRecovery -s give me an "invalid option" error...
