Hi all, I am writing this post after having spent no less than ten straight hours in trying to recover an iphone 3GS. I was given this broken iphone 3gs which wouldnt even start. So i tried recovering it. However when I attempt to do so nothing happens. I have no idea what OS it is on, I have no idea what happened to it nothing. I plugged it to itunes where it went straight into a recovery mode, and i attempted to restore and install 6.1.3 -> nothing I have downloaded various tools and firmwares and sending it into DFU mode to install -> nothing. When i use the fix recovery application, I get a number of errors libusb:error darwin transfer status transfer error timed out (from the console) then form the phone i get some error at the start about missing gBdevlist gimagelist fs_mount fs_unmount fs_load_file At the end it tries to download something but it times out. it gives an error, no successful download after 60000ms, giving up. Something related to AppleBCMWLAN I literally have tried everything and attempted different versions. Can someone give me some advice as to how I can proceed?? I am under the impression that the device is completely wiped out I repeat, i have no idea what software it had. Thanks in advance to all those who reply.
