    Hello my iphone was at like 10% battery the other day, and I plugged it in and I woke up to a dead iphone on the screen with the red battery and lightning bolt when I plug it in.

    I have tried everything I can think of to get it to work, and read through this entire thread:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=391795

    no success.

    If any one has anything they can think of to help me please let me know.

    List of things I tried:
    1. power + home button until restart (nothing)
    2. remove sim and try ^ (nothing)
    3. put in dfu mode (works but I really don't want to restore my phone, and if I could just get it to turn on that would be great. Also idk if dfu mode would work b/c idk if the battery is charging or not)
    4. restarting pc with iphone connected (nothing)

    How about you try charging the phone for a little while?

    well it was ios 4.3.2 and it was jailbroken, but I tried to restore it to 4.3.5 so now I think it is on 4.3.5 and not jailbroken, but still won't turn on
