    Hey guys, so my jailbroken iPhone 4 (on ios 6) has been displaying a pretty strange message. I get the Temperature warning, ONLY when I recieve calls, leading to the call being disconnected. It must be a hardware/software issue, because it's winter and it's fairly cold, and I only get that message when I recieve a call, but not when I make one. Any suggestions?


    The error:

    Hold the sleep button and the home button until you see the apple logo. Then hope that works if not take it to a apple store. Then upgrade to iOS 7 there's NO excuse not to it's so much better. Hope it works! Tell me if it does.

    The temperature warning doesn't freeze the iphone, I can use it, but it only happens when i get a call, and it immediatly loses the signal, causing the call to disconnect. I haven't upgraded to ios 7 because i thought it lagged on the iPhone 4.

    Actually, yes there is. At least there is if you are jailbroken on iOS 6 and want to preserve your jailbreak. Upgrade to iOS 7 right now and you lose your jailbreak. Also, iOS 7 has been reported to be slow and laggy on the iPhone 4.
    That's a matter of opinion. I don't think it is better and I happen to not like the whole Fisher Price/Playskool inspired interface of iOS 7.

    Further, I have everything iOS 7 gives you on iOS 6 with my jailbreak and stuff that iOS 7 does not.

    Now this is just my opinion. You like iOS 7 obviously. But please realize that others don't and have valid reasons for NOT upgrading.

    OP, I don't think an upgrade to iOS 7 is going to fix what sounds like a hardware problem. Further, you're correct. On an iPhone 4 iOS 7 has been reported to be laggy. It does fine on the 4s, but you have a 4. And once you upgrade, it's a complicated procedure to get back to iOS 6 if you don't want 7 any more.

    I don't really think it is a hardware problem, since I only get this error when I recieve calls, as soon as I get the error, I lose all the network signal.

    Well, normally this is an overheat warning. Other than overheating, which you don't say is happening, I don't know what else might cause it.

    I saw your other post in the jailbreak section where you mention that you are jailbroken.

    Have you recently installed any tweaks or apps? Or has it been awhile?

    Any other issues you've been having? If you want to save your jailbreak you could try ILEX Rat if checking your tweaks does not work.

    It can't be an overheating problem, since it's fairly cold where I live. I guess I'll try removing the jailbreak.
    One question: why can't I just restore to stock 6.1.3, and then, if I want, jailbreak it again in 6.1.3, instead of using Ilex rat?

    I have an iPhone 4 and feel the extra lag is annoying but worth the new UI and control center. Also I still think you should try holding the sleep button and the home button because doing that has fixed many thing for me and my friends. And it could be iOS 6. My friends who also has an iPhone 4 said his phone stopped working when the battery got to 30% and when he finally got iOS 7 it fixed it.

    What you are recommending is simply a hard reset. Yes, rebooting and even hard resetting can solve some temporary issues. But if there are problems with the underlying file system because of a tweak or an app that has messed things up a hard reset won't fix that.

    The OP (which is not me by the way) is jailbroken. He didn't mention that in his initial post [Actually, it looks like I completely missed his statement about it, so my bad]. So, there are other factors here that could be affecting things.

    Sorry missed that. You have an iPhone 4, so doing that is possible. How much work do you want to do?

    Doing this requires the use of a few other programs. I've never done it so the intricacies of what is involved I'm not familiar with.

    If you were on a 4s though or newer you could not. The jailbreak for the iPhone 4 as I understand it involves an exploit in the baseband of the device. Apple fixed that in the 4s and newer and since Apple is not signing any version of iOS 6 any more AND since there was an issue with SHSH blobs and Cydia it's impossible to downgrade on the 4s or later.

    If you need an exact step by step process ask on the jailbreaks section because I couldn't tell you how it's done with the iPhone 4. But sure, since you have the iPhone 4, you have that option.

    Sorry I don't know about jailbreak because it's something I was never interested in and would never do to a device I use.
