    how about provide us with some details? which iPhone? what kind of firmware? how did you jailbreak it? is it tethered or untethered. the more details the better for you. ;)

    sorry for not being specific, rlly scared just got this and dont want to break it
    okay, so it is an iphone 3gs and it is on 4.2.1 firmware, and i am pretty sure that it is tethered. i jailbroke it using redsn0w. i upgraded the baseband so that i could unlock it. It was fine but when i installed repo666.ultrasn0w it rebooted and then got stuck at the apple logo :(

    if it's tethered it needs to be plugged or connected and you need to run redsn0w it will ask you if you want to connect for tether. you only need to tether if you power the phone off or if you reboot. you can respring all day long. hope this solves your problem.

    hey i can help you.


    1. Phone stuck on apple logo, and make sure its plugged in

    2. launch redsnow

    3. select tether right now, press next

    4. okay now the tricky part, turn off the phone with home and power button. as soon as it turns off, press the next button on redsn0w and do the dfu procedure.

    i had the same problem and it worked for me

    Why the **** would you upgrade the baseband to unlock it?

    You have to upgrade baseband in order to unlock it dont you? i read countless tutorials and they all said this.

    oh snap I missed you upgraded the baseband if you did a stranded upgrade with out preserving your baseband say 1.59. your say 03.10.01 it not compatible with ultrasn0w and you most likely crashed it. DFU restore would be your only hope and you won't be able to unlock it till a new unlock comes out/ most likely after 4.3 is released.

    where the heck are these tutorials it's the other way around. preserve basebands to unlock not upgrade them.

    DFU mode to restore 4.2.1 you can either do custom firmware (redsn0w) or Apples. you can not unlock however till a new unlock comes out. you can not downgrade baseband after you upgrade. so no unlock for now.

    you said it was in recovery. can you power it off at all? keep trying to get it in DFU. using a incompatible is not good. if these tutorials told you to do this they are giving really bad advice. I am hoping you misread them.

    It sounds like you may have followed a guide on upgrading to the iPad's baseband. I'm not sure if that's the cause of your issue, but we'll figure it out.


    To get your phone into DFU mode: Hold down both the power and home buttons until the screen turns off. Once that happens, wait a bit more than half a second and let go of the power button, while continuing to hold the home button. If the screen turns back on, start over. If it doesn't turn back on, you should be in DFU mode.

    The important thing is to let go of the power button at the right moment. It's a bit difficult to get the timing down at first, but once you get it you shouldn't have any problems doing it again.

    Connect to iTunes restore as new. Add contacts photo's etc after. Oh and don't try to unlock it there is no unlock for the upgraded baseband. You have no choice but to wait for a unlock.

    does it give you a specific error? You can also try using a different computer.
