    Default iphone 4s stuck on apple logo, NOTHING works

    while installing something from cydia my device crashed earlier

    when i try to reboot it it shows the apple logo, the screen will flash and it will reshow the apple logo slightly bright for 2 seconds then sit permanently in a very darkened apple logo

    i've been googling for hours and had nothing work (read many links from this site)

    i can enter DFU mode but nothing works
    i can reboot the device but nothing works (goes to said dark screen)
    i can enter restore mode but nothing works

    quite simply my phone does nothing, nothing works and i have no idea what to do

    If you want to remove whatever you were trying to install you can power it on while holding volume up and it should go into safe mode which will suspend all the jailbreak tweaks

    If you can get into DFU mode, connect your iPhone to another computer running iTunes and restore it on that one. Then try re-jailbreaking

    I don't know what else to tell you what else to try but here's the link to an Apple support article. Error 3014 seems to be about contacting the update server.

    a fair few things

    i queued about 5 or 6 things up which had a good 10+ things to install in total

    yep and none of the "solutions" to the error work either

    as the title says nothing works, i've tried everything google has to offer but so far i've yet to find one link or article or scrap of information that says someone has the same problem as me or even has the darkened apple logo screen :/

    I had the same thing happen to me when I accidentally downloaded lock info when I had intelliscreen x loaded. They didn't mix and it bricked my phone. Only thing that worked was restored as new and started all over again.

    Well that was very non descriptive... You're not really giving much info for someone who is asking for help

    If it's still stuck on apple logo, try to do a system restore. That will solve it

    Try a new USB cable, if its faluty in anyway you will get that error.

    It's impossible to brick an iDevice through software (when IOS is running) its not your device, its your computer or mainly your USB.

    Default Re: iphone 4s stuck on apple logo, NOTHING works

    Had this same exact thing happen the other night. Installed DreamBoard and was messing with themes. Resprung the phone, and it never came back up. Same exact scenario, dark screen with the Apple logo dimly lit. Connected to iTunes, and it worked, but kept rebooting. Plugged it into a wall charger, and it would make the connected sound about every 12 seconds. Worked on it yesterday because it was late. Had to restore, and start from new. Updated to 6.1.2 even though I didn't want to. Jailbroke it again with evasi0n, but it didn't seem to take. Started over again, and it finally worked. Seems to be fine now. I only installed the tweaks that I had before DreamBoard, and am leaving that whole aspect alone.

    You should have used the hold volume up on boot, to disable mobile substrate, as ever tweak that runs on idevices now uses this, instead of doing a restore when it's not needed.

    There aren't any tweaks that install/overwrite system files anymore so if you get a reboot loop do the above. I have been there & got the tee-shirt.

    Did you ever get this resolved. I used the evasi0n jailbreak on my neighbors phone and he brought it to me doing exactly as you discribed, boots up to the apple logo then dims to the apple logo again with the apple logo flashing off for a second every minute or so. It's not rebooting as when connected to iTunes, it sees the phone and files. When I try to do a restore from backup, it won't let it since it's locked with a pass code. Holding the volume up button has no effect either. There also seems to be no way to restore an iPhone 4S on 6.1.2 and I would have to upgrade to 6.1.3+ with no jailbreak. I hope I do not have to do this. So let me now if any success was made on this.

    Awesome New jailbreak tweaks and some tips.

    If you are referring to the volume up button then yes, I have tried it and the screen just stays dim at the Apple logo, but not restarting. iTunes recognizes it and shows all the info as does iFunBox. Not sure why the volume up button isn't working but since I can use iFunBox, maybe there is a way to install an app to invoke a restart into safe mode.

    I'm referring to using something to rename the files. Then seeing if you'll boot after that.

    Recently many people have fallen prey to the boot loop issue after installing a jailbreak tweak. The phone reboots, Apple logo shows up then goes dim and reboots. You can access your file system via SSH but cannot get into safe mode. I suffered this problem along with many others and it seems Cydia dev @saurik had received tons of emails on how to fix the problem. Luckily there is a fix where you need to remove two files on your device so your springboard can reload its file system.

    First you need to SSH into the file system and find these 2 files
    /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore
    /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist

    Once you find them don't delete them just in case
    change them to
    /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore.bak
    /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist.bak

    This basically renders them invisible, you can go and delete them later, always good to keep a backup

    Once you have changed the name reboot.
    Upon reboot you will notice all your stock apps are there and your installed cydia apps but NO appstore apps.
    DONT PANIC

    Just sit back and chill as iOS will slowly rebuild your apps on the springboard. I have over 300 apps on mine so it took a couple of minutes.
    Once all your apps are showing go into Cydia and remove the offending tweak. Should work perfect.

    Then go back into iFile and removed the files you changed to .bak.

    You can also use this method if you have jailbroken your device and Siri stops opening apps.

    I just had this happen to me at work. I noticed my iphone shut off for some odd reason. Every time I did a hard reset it went to the regular apple screen. It then went to a black screen quick and then the dim screen. Volume up button didn't work or anything. Turned it into DFU multiple times and it still wouldn't restore. Said that the device wasn't able to. Somehow got it to DFU with the USB to iTunes logo. It is now restoring to 6.1.4

    Ios 6.1.3 ,

    After the download it said REBOOT device

    Then it just was on the apple logo for a long time

    I tried iReb, restoring w/ iTunes

    I am almost certain your problem is because you rebooted your phone which has a tethered jailbreak. You need to put the phone back into DFU mode and select Boot Tethered​ from redsn0w. That is how the tethered jailbreak works.

    The point in seeking advice in the jailbreak forum is to maintain the jailbreak.

    Please don't START by giving the last resort?
