About to return from deployment, iPhone is jacked, can someone please help asap?
Hey guys, sorry for the impassioned title but I am in a bit of a bind. I am about to pull in from an 8month deployment in a few short hours and my iPhone is jacked, non-functioning.
I have a 3Gs, 5.1.1, baseband 06.15.00
At a libbo port during the deployment, I by accident clicked update when the phone asked if I wanted to update to the newest software version. Realizing what I had done I canceled it in the middle of the update. This kind of jacked the phone up, I had to restore it and rejailbreak it with the latest version of redsnow i have on my comp, 09.14b2.
Basically, after that, due to really crappy internet that didnt let me search for what I needed to do, and forgetting what I had done months before initially, I restored it with a NO_BB_OLDROM_iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw Now I cannot get the phone passed the set up screen, it asks me to connect it to iTunes even though it already is, and iTunes shows that there is a phone connected to it but doesnt recognize it or allow me to sync it etc.
Some of my constraining factors.
I only have internet access via this work computer, no access via my MacBook pro which has all my jailbreak apps, therefore no downloading newer versions.
I only have redsnow 0.9.14b2 and older versions, Absinthe and Tiny Umbrella.
Is there anyone out there right now who can talk me through this? On googlechat perhaps? I would reallllly appreciate it, sucks to come home after 8 months and I cant call my family, set up my ride etc.
haha I will just be hanging out here waiting for a reply.
