Brand new to the forums and i seem to be having an interesting situation that i need help on. I have never really used an iPhone 3gs before and i find myself lost as to what to do next.
Battery is completely dead, not taking charge at all but when plugged into computer the phone turns on and gets into recovery mode. All i have is recovery mode and i am trying to get my phone back to life and have run into several guides that look to get me back up and running. The phone is from AT&T but i would require it to be unlocked so i can use here. The previous owner, my brother, jailbroke this thing and now left it to me like this all messed up.
I followed this guide when i get error 20 on itunes:
How to Fix Error “20″ On iPhone 3GS / 3G
Which got to the point where i was downgrading "apparently" to 4.21 and the phone started back up and i could see the apple logo and right above the home button some loading circle. Then all of a sudden the phone turns off and restarts and goes back into recovery mode and error 20 pops up again.
Yikes, i am unsure if its because the battery is completely dead (got another one on the way) but its plugged into the computer and i figured that would sufficient in terms of getting the phone up and running again
Also forgot to add, sometimes when i actually think the phone is going to take the restore it restarts to the apple logo and turns off again and restarts in a constant loop.
