i made an account specifically to get any help

My iPhone 4 is stuck on the Apple logo (I think this is called bricked? Not sure). It's Evasi0n jailbroken.
This happened because I made the stupid mistake of installing Siri onto it with Cydia.
It won't let me restore (I got error 3194 when I try to do so) and I tried to reboot it multiple times. I need serious help with this; I've tried everything.
Is there any way to remove the problem using iFunBox?
I'm willing to restore or take away Evasi0n. I just want to get back onto my phone again. :(

Edit: I installed Ac!d Siri if that helps.

Try booting up holding the volume up button. If that works, then go into cydia and uninstall the siri tweak and reboot your device. You should be fine once that's done

Download and run iFaith, check what shsh blobs cydia has for you and then click download. Which shsh blobs does cydia have for you that iFaith says is valid?

If you don't care about jailbreaking anymore, just put your phone into DFU mode and open iTunes and click restore. You'll be on iOS 6.1.3 once the process is done. I hope you do not rely on ultrasn0w for a software unlock. If you do rely on a software unlock, then the steps to restore is slightly different

The first method didn't work. (To make things clear, was I supposed to hold down the power and home button for 10 seconds, release the power button and continue to hold onto the home button for 5 seconds and then release and hold the volume up button? If so, I tried and it didn't work for me.)

If I clicked the correct options, iFaith has no shsh blobs for me. I did click something else from my first try and I believe it said something about 6.1.3 (my iPhone is currently iOS 6.0, however).

And I get the error when I try to restore or update. I'm not sure what ultrasn0w is or if I have it...

For future reference, stay away from Siri ports. They are usually a train wreck and alter/delete necessary system files needed for your device to run properly. Simply uninstalling them doesn't always correct the problem. In fact, from my limited knowledge on Siri ports uninstalling them usually fails to correct them problem. It is my understanding users are either forced to restore or they figure out what system files were corrupted and successfully find them online and SSH them onto their device, replacing the bad ones. Luckily though, people who install a Siri port coincidentally also have devices which can be downgraded.

Good luck on the restore process. I hope all goes well!

I meant turn off the device. Hold the power button to boot up your device and also hold the volume up button. Once you see the apple logo, you can let go of the power button but continue holding the volume up button

Hmm, as you are on iOS 6.0, you have the possibility of dumping your blobs using iFaith. However, I'm not sure if it'll work as you aren't in a usable state. Anyways, run iFaith and click the option to dump blobs. Follow the instructions and hope for the best that it'll dump the blobs. If it doesn't, you'll have to resort to a tethered jailbreak on 6.1.3

Hmm, if siri ports are as dangerous bumpy said, you may have to restore :(

My phone won't let me turn it off by just holding the power button so I guess that options out.

I dumped the blobs and I'm not sure what to do now. My phone is telling me to connect it to iTunes (which I did) but it still won't restore -- it keeps getting restore errors.

turn off your device by holding the power and home button (when the screen turns off, just let go of both buttons). that will turn your device off and now you proceed by trying to boot up your device while holding the volume up button

using tinyumbrella, can you tell me what the ECID (Dec) of your device is? I'm going to help check for you if the iOS 6.0 blobs that you dumped are valid or not. depending on what i find out, i will give you a different set of instructions. thanks. PM me the ECID if you don't want to post it publicly. Did you dump the blob using iFaith?

another quick question, do you rely on ultrasn0w to use your phone?

828477317934 is my ECID (Dec) and yes, I did use iFaith.
And I'm not sure what ultrasn0w is so I probably don't rely on it --

it's a CDMA iphone 4, correct? ultrasn0w is the package that people use for a software unlock if you wanted to know

anyways, it appears that the blobs you dumped was proper. Do you want an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.0 or a tethered/semi-tethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3?

Untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.0.
It really doesn't matter to me as long as I get my iPhone off of this...

Have you tried the holding volume up button option while booting to see if that helps?


These are the steps to restore to iOS 6.0 (should you decide to restore and/or the holding volume up while booting doesn't allow you to boot into the device)

1. download the iOS 6.0 ipsw firmware package: http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS6/Restore/041-7179.20120919.bDw4g/iPhone3,3_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw

2. run iFaith (I assume you have v1.5.8)

3. Click Show Available SHSH Caches on Server

4. Plug in device

5. Click Show Available SHSH blobs on TSS Server(s)

6. check and download the 6.0 (10A403) [iFaith] blob

7. Next, go back to the main menu and press Build *signed* IPSW w/ Blobs

8. Choose the iFaith blob you just downloaded

9. Browse for the IPSW package you just downloaded

10. Let it make the IPSW, once it's done making it, it'll give you the instructions to put your device into pwned DFU mode

11. once in pwned DFU mode, open itunes, hold shift and click restore

12. Choose the custom firmware package that iFaith made for you

13. It'll continue with the restoring process and once done, your device is back to iOS 6.0 and you can jailbreak untether with evasi0n

try this one: http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS6/Restore/041-7179.20120919.bDw4g/iPhone3,3_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw

weird why the first one didn't work

edit: oh, i know why, hahaha. i copy and pasted it in plain text so it was literally "..." instead of shortening the link
an alternative could be to choose the "download for me" option in ifaith
I got error 1603 when trying to restore.
My phone had the iFaith logo on the screen and was seeming to load something, but it was replaced with the Apple logo again after a few seconds. :(

Edit: Tried it again and got an error again, this time it was 1600.

Don't you have any backup saved?
I guess your only option is restore, setup as new and than jailbreak again, if you want....
