JB Iphone 3g bricked, HELP!!
Hey guys, this is my first post. I posted my problems on another forum which seemed to have run out of ideas. So here's my situation, an unfortunate one. I jailbroke my Iphone about 3/4 of a year ago on my old Dell XPS tower, which has all my backups. The computer has been out of commission for about a half year, I've been using my brother.
So basically I haven't changed music or had anything to do with Itunes on the computer for about a half year. It hasn't even really been an issue. So in anticipation of buying one of the 200 dollar acer netbooks at Target, I installed MiWi through Cydia
Miwi works beautifully at first, tethers fine, I manage to get a 280 ping on Red Orchestra even. The problem is the program refused to stop tethering after trying to activated tethering an deactivate through the button. Just stuck. So I do just power down the phone and try to restart it. OOPS. Now the phone refuses to boot, sim card in or out. It's been 2 or 3 days so the Iphone isn't just "thinking about it" gettings its stuff together. Either freezes at apple logo, or goes to apple logo for 15 seconds and then blacks out.
I have another computer I can install Itunes on for the fix. After installing Itunes on the system, I plug in the phone only to see that both windows and Itunes refuse to see it as a phone, or as anything. No signs of life, except the Iphone starts up, sits on the Apple screen for a long time, then quits. Someone suggested tiny umbrella, but that isn't going to help I don't think if the computer doesn't even see the phone.
I literally just want my phone back, am completely willing to forego jailbreaking for the time being. I just want it to work again. Help me, please! I can only imagine the calls from family members, friends, and the goddamn bank that I've missed because of this.
Please guys I really need a hand.
