    Exclamation HELP: have I killed my Iphone 3GS??


    My phone was unlocked and jailbroken. I tried to erase and reset all settings through the phone's menu but it seems like its killed it, all I see is the Apple logo on the phone, it will not power or power etc...

    I don't know how long it takes for the phone to fully erase and reset etc..

    any help much appreciated.

    Thanks, Ash

    It can take a couple of hours to erase and reset all settings, but if after a couple of hours it won't come back on. Put the phone in DFU and restore as new, then, if needed, you can re-jailbreak and unlock.

    I have found that when you reset via the phone and you are jailbroken, the iPhone will not reboot correctly. Restore via iTunes.
