I assume that the issue I am dealing with is going to take quite an experienced apple expert but if ANYONE can help please do so. I have an iPhone 4s running ios 5.0.1 and it is jailbroken. I have had really zero major issues with my phone for about a year or so but a couple of weeks ago it decided to stop charging. Weird as it seems if the phone is powered down it will charge, however if the phone is off and then I plug in the charger it powers up automatically and does not charge. So to deal with this I have been plugging in the phone and then turning it off as this is the only way I can figure out how to get it to charge. As you can imagine this is extremely annoying so today I decided I was going to do a complete wipe of my phone and see if this helped, in the even it didnt help at least I could take my phone to the local apple store since it would get rid of the jailbreak. As I went to try and restore my phone I simply cant figure out anyway to do so. My phone WILL NOT be recognized by my computer or iTunes so I was forced to try and do so through the settings on the phone. I tired the whole DFU mode thing, which I was able to get my phone into the DFU mode, but when I plug it into the computer it still is not recognized by my computer. Whenever I try to do the reset instead of bringing up the screen with the apple and the load status bar thing it brings up the stupid spinning circle icon and never restores. I have been trying to figure out what to do for a few hours now and am running out of ideas. PLEASE HELP!
