Iphone 4 Screen Black and Unrecoverable
- date: February 4, 2013
Hi, my wife has an Iphone 4, it has had a jailbreak on it for at least a year and she is still runniing IoS 5.0.1. She does have the jailbreak, but other than BiteSMS, 5 dock app and a couple other tweaks, she most likely never installs things from cydia.
The other day, she was sending a text, she claimed she saw something say updating (have no clue what), the phone went black and then went into a boot loop where the apple logo faded in and out in a black screen. I tried to hard reset by holding home and power for a while, but that didn't work. I then tried to restore it w/ Itunes, but it kept failing giving me a 3194 error.
I then followed some instructions to add host address to some file which I did, I still received the same error.
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, sorry if so.
Now, I'm pretty sure I've probably screwed things up from this point on and put the device in it's current state, I was a little hasty
