    Hello macrumors Members, i have a huge problem.

    so i want to restore my old jailbroken iphone 4 BUT when i connect it with my mac or windows pc it is not recognized. even when i just use the usb charging adapter and plug it in the socket its still not recognized as charging. but the funny part is, that it is actually charging but really really slow, like 3% per hour.

    so i already tried various cables and various computers. and i also changed the build in dock connector in the iphone. but still the iphone does not go in the charging mode.

    you have any idea how to fix this? i somehow can't even get it in DFU mode. since i it does not get recognized by itunes i can't manually restore it . and since it's jailbroken i can't restore it via settings.

    what else can i do?
    If someone could help me out and bring my iphone to life i will donate him 5 bucks via paypal :)

    You said you haven't been able to get it into DFU mode, but I think this is still your best bet to get it working again. It doesn't always work the first time because the timing is pretty important.
