      Hi,

      Here’s a possible solution for you:
      There may be 2 copies of qtmlclient.dll on your system (one possibly belonging to Adobe Photoshop), rename the one from PS and run it again.

      •

      Patrick Gumban10 months, 1 week ago

      Hi,

      If Recboot doesn’t work for you. I suggest you use latest Redsn0w to kick your iPad out of recovery mode. Just navigate to Extras > Recovery Fix. Let me know how that works for you.

        i did the same thing, i tried upgrading to ios 7 but then it got stuck in recovery mode. i tried to use Redsn0w but it doesn’t seems to work, it said “A simple version of “Recovery Fix” has been applied to your ipad2. The more comprehensive version is not currently available for A5 or later devices.”. What can i do to out of this recovery mode without losing my photos?

    My wifes iphone 4(os6-orginal, without jailbreak) got droped in water. It was under water for a few seconds. Emediatly it was turnd of (aparently on his own) and batery was taken out in about an hour or two. Inside was barely drop or two of water. It vas lef like that for two days and then put together. It was put on charger an there was only black screen. I tried everything (redsnow, tyny umbrela, snowbreez, and it only says “your phone is in dfu mode, and soft dfu mode”. On i tunes calls error 1601 and 3461. When i tried on redsnow it got stucked on screen saying “waiting for reboot”.How do i fix this.Please help. Sry for bad english, not my native.

      Tyler (Jaxov Team)1 year, 7 months ago

      After being in water, the problems could be endless, and there’s no guarantee that it will be working perfectly again. If it wasn’t working before you tried the jailbreak methods, chances are things may not be fixable.

    Hi, my ipod got wet on vacation at the ocean. It was left to dry at the hotel for a week. When we got home it went into a bag of rice for three days. Today I plugged it in the the charge cable and it came on and charged but gives me the connect to  iTunes screen, but when I try to connect it tells me that ‘ iTunes could not connect to the iPod because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the iPod before it can be used with iTunes.’ How can I enter the passcode if I can’t access the screen? Also I can’t get the iPod to turn off……..any ideas???

    •  
      Tyler (Jaxov Team)1 year, 7 months ago

      Hi Josee, speaking from personal experience of dropping a phone into the ocean. It’s not the same as dropping it into regular tap water and letting it dry, the ocean is salt water, and it’s highly possible that the insides are all corroded from the salt now, thus the reason the screen won’t turn on. That’s what happened to mine after letting it dry, so you might be out of luck.

      •  
        Josee1 year, 1 month ago

      Tyler (Jaxov Team)1 year, 8 months ago

      Here’s a possible solution that we’ve found:
      There may be 2 copies of qtmlclient.dll on your system (one possibly belonging to Adobe Photoshop), rename the Photoshop one and run it again.

    Hi Pramod.It was one of the fine mornings in office till i made my last call on my 3g apple and called my electrician to fix my phone connection at the back of my chair.Lo behold the guy put my chair aside and rammed his hand on my phone lying in front of me on my desk.I CAME BACK and found my phone blacked out.I yelled at the electrician and he said i didn’t do anything except i pressed the phone accidentally.
    I have precious data in my phones my world wide contacts,my my site pics etc.

    Please treat this as a SOS and I will be very grateful if you can get me out of this calamity.

    my husband started a restore on my daughter’s phone not realizing that the phone hadn’t been synced for a while and all of her photos would be lost. the phone is stuck in recovery mode and itunes is telling us we need to restore the phone. can recboot kick the phone out of recovery mode so we can transfer the photos before restoring the phone?

        Yes. It kicks it out of recovery, and restores it to what it was last time it was out of recovery mode.

      Hi,

      You can download the latest version of Redsn0w. Go to Extras > Recovery Fix and the follow Redsn0w’s instruction on how to go into DFU mode. It’s pretty easy. :)

    mikeperry12 years, 7 months ago

    Hi, i have a iphone 4 on what i believe is basic 4.0 firmware, it is not jailbroken (although my 3g was, and i carried over that restore file when i got my new phone, if that is at all relevant.) and when it was running a little slow i figured id turn it off and back on again to speed things up, and during that process it just went into the connect to itunes screen, i tried using Recboot to kick it out but it now it just goes from the apple logo to recovery/dfu mode then off again. I do not know what to do, as i have thousands of photos and numbers and other precious data i dont want to lose. I havent synced it in awhile, and other than manually SSH’ing it out (which i dont know how to do, and if it is even possible). im really stuck here, if anyone has any adivce, id greatly appreciate it.

    then i restored by selecting erase and restore in settings option ..!
    but forgot to check out on which firmware was it running .!
    and i even asked my bro ..he said he doesnt remember ..!
    I used redsnow 0.9.2 to set it in DFU mode..!
    then it started but now it is stuck on ‘connect it to itunes’.!
    and itunes is showing iphone software has a problem connect to the internet..!

    can u please tell what should i do …!!??

    okay so the only saved shsh i have is 4.3.5 and i did everything from the post on how to save shsh blobs when in recovery mode, but i still get error 1 on itunes. please help me? :(

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 8 months ago

      RecBoot doesn’t work. Put your device into a pwned DFU mode first & restore it to a stock iOS 4.3.5 IPSW. Next, use Redsn0w’s Recovery Fix instead to kick your device out of the recovery loop.

  •  
    linh2 years, 8 months ago

    im still not quite understanding because im running on 4.3.5 firmware and on recboot there isnt a fix covery for that. and besides that, it is the only firmware that appears on my iphone 4. i jailbroke it but i decided to just restore my phone. i am on a continuous recovery loop because itunes pops up with error 1. i havent seen a single youtube video and i thought you could help me. so please help me? all i want is just to restore my iphone4 back to 4.3.5 firmware.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 8 months ago

      Only if you have the necessary SHSH saved for your device / iOS for 4.3.5 on Cydia can you downgrade. Open up TU, set it to these Settings http://bit.ly/qS5bjW & check for any saved SHSH blobs on Cydia.

  •  
    habbal2 years, 8 months ago

    so should i do it ?or and how can i go back to 4.3.3. thank you

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 8 months ago

      You need to have the necessary SHSH saved for it already on Cydia like this http://bit.ly/qS5bjW. If you don’t have 4.3.3 listed, you cannot restore to the same either.

      Nope. Getting the broken power button fixed would only help.

    After trying to jailbreak my phone, I went thru the whole process with some interuptions but thought I completed everything and just finished rebooting and when I went to find the icon on my phone to upload some software, the icon wasn’t there.

    What could I have done wrong? I followed iClarified exactly.
    I used a iMac computer with an iPhone 4.

    dextera2 years, 9 months ago

    do you have any idea of how much a repair could cost for a phone with broken home button and when its jailbroken like mine? i have tried asking my retailstore but they dont want to answer me

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      Should be costing ~6$. But then again it depends to whom you show it for repair.

  •  
    dextera2 years, 9 months ago

    i was just gonna check with apple if i got any warranty left, appearantly i doesnt according to them :( so then it doesnt matter if i got my phone jailbroken or not, still gotta pay the repair costs :’(

  •  
    dextera2 years, 9 months ago

    is there any way to get my serial number when my phone is in this state?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      Why do you want the serial number? Its there on your iP4′s packaging box.

  •  
    dextera2 years, 9 months ago

    no :/ i left it like it is now over the night and when i woke up it was turned off and then i tried to put it in dfu mode but as i said before my home button doesnt work so i just started it again and now it’s stuck like this again and nothing happens when i hold the power button

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      Well at this point neither will the Apple reps be able to find out that you were jailbroken because once they fix it, they would usually go ahead & restore your device successfully & give it back to you. So no worries there. Just tell them that you got stuck in this loop one fine morning. This is a very common issue trust me.

  •  
    dextera2 years, 9 months ago

    yea it is, it’s connected to this computer which im writing to you on :) i dont know if my phone is in any kind of loop or something, it’s in what happens when you try to start a tethered phone normally with the power button without redsn0ws “just boot tethered now” option. what i see on my phone is the apple logo and then the apple loading circle above it, like this one: http://www.ateliershoes.com/images/loading_apple.gif
    except the one on my phone is absolutely still, not spinning like that gif

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      Mhm. Did you try continuously pressing the Power button as well? Any change?

  •  
    dextera2 years, 9 months ago

    but you see, i cant even start my phone since it’s tethered, plus my home button isnt working so i cant put it in dfu mode so now my phone is stuck at boot logo and i cant do anything, and itunes doesnt detect my phone until it has started right?
    Edit: I am, i plugged my phone into my computer but itunes doesnt detect it, i even tried using the help thing in itunes where it tries to detect connected devices

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      iTunes definitely will detect your device even if its in any kind of loop. Is your machine connected to the internet as well? The one on which your connecting your device to?

      To restore to a stock iOS version, you need not be in one. Just hook your device up to iTunes & Shift+Restore to iOS 4.3.5.

    what so i turn my iphone in for repair? what happens whne they see it’s jailbroken? isnt that gonna cost me a fortune then?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      You should have seen this coming before you went ahead & jailbroke your iPhone tethered. Restore to stock 4.3.5 iOS via iTunes & give it off for a repair.

  •  
    dextera2 years, 9 months ago

    hey man, i have a problem. my iphone is version 4.3.5 and jailbroken with tethered redsn0w. my iphone is currently turned off, and my home button doesnt work so i cannot put my iphone into dfu or recovery mode nor start it normally since it’s tethered, and to start it tethered i need to put it in dfu mode. see my problem? what should i do? :s

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      Get your Home button fixed. It costs only ~6$. Can’t do much right now w/o the Home button.

    Hi there,

    My Iphone 4 is in recovery mode with the dreaded error 9. I tried RecBoot running off my PC and the phone still remained in recovery mode (probably my fault). But trying to run it off my old macbook i get an error saying i cant run RecBoot from the version of Mac OS X im using, sorry for sounding dumb, but do you have a version that’d run off my stoneage Mac??

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      Well, do you get this error even when trying to restore to a stock 4.3.5 iOS version as well? Try that. Generally, Error 9 is a hardware issue, so you might want to take it to the nearest Apple store to get it fixed / replaced.

      If you haven’t saved any SHSH for your device until now, update to iOS 4.3.5 & use a Gevey SIM to unlock your iP4. This is the only way to unlock your device at the moment.

  •  
    Febi2 years, 10 months ago

    Hi Pramod, my iphone 3G suddenly froze on apple logo, and there’s a loading circle. it keeps going like that for 2 days now. It’s originally from US, been unlocked, and jailbreaked (i have cydia app). Tried to restore it the conventional way, but it didn’t work (perhaps the connection slow at that time) and i’m too scared to try it again. I tried recboot, but it didn’t worked either. I’m using itunes 10.3.1.55. Pls help!

    Thanks!

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Restore your device by using a custom IPSW of whichever version you were on or higher. You absolutely need to create a custom IPSW using either Sn0wbreeze / PwnageTool & then restore to the same to keep your unlock. You will not have any issues whilst restoring because the iP3G doesn’t need any kind of SHSH files.

  •

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      You mean 4.3.5.
      You can downgrade ONLY if you have an SHSH saved for your device either by Cydia / TU. Check for any saved SHSH that you may have for your device / iOS first & only then can you restore to that particular version. Read this http://bit.ly/oKCpYX.

    my phone is stuck in recovery mode. it is a 3g. i did a recover to unjailbreak because it was jailbroke and super slow. after i did this i got the error 1015. and it is stuck in recovermode.i then downloaded the fixrecovery thing and did all that. i also down loaded the recboot. it shows up in a compressed file with 5 diffrent things inside. i click on recbook and it says extract all. so i do.then there is something else. another recboot. so i click it. then i get the unhandled exception error. Microsoft .Net Framework. but i read a previous comment and followed those directions and downloaded it. but i still get the error? help?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Use a custom 4.2.1 IPSW & restore to that via iTunes in a pwned DFU mode using iReb/Redsn0w. Download one from here http://bit.ly/k1DeYH & use it to restore your device.

    krod2 years, 11 months ago

    Do you know about sn0wbreeze, and one of its feature Make IPSW Nor Only?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      There isn’t one out like that just yet. All the custom creating tools including Sn0wbreeze creates new custom IPSWs that are meant for fresh installs ONLY (wipes out everything you had on your device.).

  •  
    krod2 years, 11 months ago

    Thank You for responding back, how is that possible? How about my other info, such as pictures, contacts etc…. Can I rejailbreak, I still have my custom ipsw saved on my pc. I used sn0wbreeze to jailbreak, I was thinking of making another custom ipsw NOR-ONLY.I heard making NOR-ONLY will flash drive and keep all info on phone intact.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Probably because you already tried to restore the device prior to using FixRec or it isn’t able to detect your iOS at all. Re-jailbreaking won’t help either because even that will kick you back onto a recovery loop. Restore with the custom IPSW will wipe-out everything that you had on your device as well.

  •  
    krod2 years, 11 months ago

    I had some error messages, Unable to find gBdevlist, Unable to find fs_mount, unable to find fs_unmount, unable to find fs_load_file. Also no sucessful firmware download after 60000 ms. What does this all mean?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      It means you really do not have any iOS on your device itself to begin with.

  •  
    krod2 years, 11 months ago

    Hi Pramod, it didn’t work. I’ll give a try when I get home. Do you have any other suggestion?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Well if your iPhone is indeed in a recovery loop, using FixRecovery is the only way out.

  •  
    krod2 years, 11 months ago

    Thank You so much for getting back to me soon. Now which version of FixRecovery do I use? 4.1 or 4.2. I’m a bit confused. I would assume 4.2. 4.26 is my baseband, I preserved it on Sn0wbreeze. My 3GS has old bootrom. If that doesn’t work, are you familiar with sn0wbreeze?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Read my previous comment once again. I have mentioned something called Tiny Umbrella. You need to download it first & see it for yourselves. Read this http://bit.ly/m8Tt6c. Using Sn0wbreeze will erase anything & everything that you may have had on your iPhone which I believe you really don’t want to.

  •  
    krod2 years, 11 months ago

    Hi Pramod. Please HELP me!!!. I have an iphone 3gs JB with sn0wbreeze on 4.1 firmware with 4.26 baseband. The problem was when resetting network settings my phone was rebooting itself and was stuck on snowflake loop (APPLE LOOP). I am trying to get out of having to restore my phone. I have a lot of pictures and contacts that I didn’t back up like a dummy.Please, I just want to exit out of snowflake screen and get back to normal without losing my pictures, because most of them have sentimental value.

    Thank You

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Use the FixRecovery option from Tiny Umbrella. Hook it up to your system first & then fire up TU. Now use the FixRecovery option available & hope for the best. (Note: Your BB version is incorrect but doesn’t really matter now.)

    Recboot program worked. Very much appreciated.

    Ipod touch 3rd GENERATION (iOS 3.xx.xx) went into recovery mode by accident.
    Stumbled across a forum @ www[dot]ifans[dot]com which recommended your program.
    Downloaded the program which interestingly and amusingly said “restore my precious”.

    Connected Ipod to laptop, opened the recboot exit program, and clicked exit recboot.
    Ipod restarted, and everything was restored as it was, no notes losts, no apps deleted, no hassles, and it only took about ten seconds.

    Once again, thank you for the program.

      Use iReb by iH8Sn0w to get yourself out of the Recovery loop on 4.3.3. Follow this: http://bit.ly/k8MNtA. In case it doesn’t work, you can use the standalone FixRecovery package from TinyUmbrella available in this guide: http://bit.ly/lN0uF4 instead.

    Hi Pramod

    I have some problem with my iphone 4, just bought it a day back adn when i was trying to download some apps via itunes the phone went off and now isn’t restarting. I have tried holding the power and the home button together for 10-15 secs. Even that doesn’t help. There are no light etc glowing on the screen and it’s completely off.
    Pls help. Alos I tried to do a restore via itunes and it gives an error message 28 :(

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Error 28 is a hardware damage error which is caused due to a bad dock connector. Return your iDevice to Apple as soon as possible. I suggest you change your USB dock/change your PC itself and try the restore on a different PC to see if it helps.

    Hi Wolverine, Help please!!!! I went to “CLEAR ALL CONTENTS AND SETTINGS” option, and now my IPOD TOUCH 4G shows the “Connect to iTunes” screen. I’ve tried all the “holding down buttons” methods but didn’t work. I opened Recboot and hit “Exit Recovery Mode”, a black screen opened (like command thing) and said st like Will try to kick the device out of recovery mode…. That’s it. I waited..Nothing happened to the Ipod as well as the Computer. My PC windows 7 doesn’t recognize the Ipod, iTunes(lastest version) doesn’t recognize it either. But when I plug in, the iPod charged. I’ve NEVER jailbroken it before. PLease help me!!! I really don’t know what to do. You seem to be the most helpful person I’ve found on the Internet!!!!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      If you have a backup of the iPT4G in iTunes, you can go ahead and follow a Restore of the iPT4 to the latest 4.3.3 iOS via iTunes. But you’ll need to keep in mind that this will erase everything that was there on your touch which is exactly what you need. If your stuck in the DFU loop (pitch black screen), you’ll need to Jailbreak your iDevice with Redsn0w to get yourself out of it. Follow this guide: http://bit.ly/kPhfh0. Make sure that you also have the latest IPSW of your iOS as well at hand for the jailbreak. :)

    What if i tried rejailbreaking using redsnow? Do you think i’ll lose everything??

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      By Re-jailbreaking, you’ll not loose any of the photos or settings you have on your iPhone. You may give a hand at jailbreak by following this guide http://bit.ly/lsrd7H. Hope it helps. :)

      •  
        MissThang3 years, 1 month ago

        I tried rejailbreaking and it doesn’t work. Is there any other form of rejailbreaking that i can use. Still trying to by pass the restore mode. I can’t lose those pictures. Hoping that something works out.

        Can i rejailbreak with greenpoison?

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

          Nope, unfortunately even GreenPois0n will respond back the same way how the others did. At this point, I’m sorry to tell that there’s no possible way to get back your photos w/o a backup, because the core iOS itself has got corrupted and so everything that was possibly there before it has already gone by now. :(

  •  
    MissThang3 years, 1 month ago

    Wolverine…i looked into the link you sent and it looks like they can only restore from backup. I haven’t backed up my phone so there’s nothing they can do for me. Is there anyway that i can fix my corrupt firmware and still save my photos?? Or is there any way i can rejailbreak and still save my photos. I mean i’m sure there is a way to save those pictures. This is why i still haven’t restored it. Im sure someone has a solution out there. If you know anything please let me know. Thanks again for your help.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Hello MissThang,
      A corrupt FW can only be resolved by a fresh restore of the iDevice. And if you follow a fresh restore, you’ll loose everything that is on your iPhone. Since you don’t have any previous backups saved, chances are very slim to save your photos. Sorry. :(

  •  
    MissThang3 years, 1 month ago

    I’ll just give you detail by detail. I want to get this solved ASAP. Pleaseeeee Helppp…as you can tell im desparate. Ok so I jailroke my iphone 3gs with redsnow to Fw 4.2.1 ipad baseband. This was back in February. So everything worked fine..i’ve been using my phone like normal with tmobile. I’ve never had a problem. Then last week My phone turned off by itself and went into recovery mode. Itunes detects my phone in restore mode, but i don’t want to restore it because i have a lot of pictures of my daughter in it. So i tried the above steps of dowloading the TU fixrecover for 4.2.1 (under the update #1 for windows). Everything seem to start fine. I entered the phone into DFU mode and then hit fixrecovery and the log started running…ending in the “6000…giving up” message. Returning it to recovery mode. I then turned off all firewalls and tried it again and received the same message along with “unale to mount user filesystem). I ave windows 7 ultimate on 32bit. Please is there anything else i can do….Is there any way i can get the restore icon on my phone and have it back to normal with all my information still there (pics)…or is therea way i can get the pictures out the phone while its still in recovery mode. Anything would help. I just want the pictures back…i don’t care if this phone breaks after that. The memories of my daughter are more important than the phone. Thanks again for being patient with me, and answering ALL my questions. You ROCK foreal..is there a better way i can communicate with you in a faster way? like email that you answer or something? please advise.

      Patrick3 years, 1 month ago

      Ok. First try to recover your photos using this guide http://bit.ly/dlJsIj (U will find them under Media folder)
      2ndly, i personally think you can never recover your iPhone unless you restore it again. To restore your iPhone, i wonder if you have SHSH blobs for iOS 4.2.1. If you have SHSH blobs then you can restore iOS 4.2.1 again on your iPhone, else you MUST restore iOS 4.3.3 to get your iPhone into working condition. As your iPhone 3GS have iPad baseband, so you can only restore iOS 4.3.3 custom IPSW in that case. To create iOS 4.3.3 custom IPSW, use this guide http://bit.ly/k5I7Qu on Windows and this guide on Mac http://bit.ly/jMpbKR

      Now why your iPhone is unable to kick itself out of recovery mode loop using any tool? Its because your firmware is corrupt. When your iDevice has a corrupt firmware, tools like Recboot, TinyUmbrella or fix recovery will not help much!

      •  
        MissThang3 years, 1 month ago

        I failed to mention that i haven’t synced my phone in a long time. Probably since i jailbroke it in Feb. Please please please tell me there’s another way to recover my pictues, even if its a paid solution. I need to recover my pictures while my phone is in recovery mode or just get out of recovery mode without restoring. Im sure there’s a way around this.

        •  
          Patrick3 years, 1 month ago

          Lol. There is NO paid or unpaid solution for this. Believe me! However these folks http://picturescueapp.com/ seems to have got some tool. I am not related to them in any way. Before buying or trying them, first contact and tell ur complete issue to them.

    hi…. i had to lay off my iphone problem from a couple of days…. but now im back…. and i downloaded “NET framework 4″ like u asked me to…. but when i click on “exit recovery mode” i get this after like 30 seconds “recovery _connect_callback”
    and under it….
    “recovery _disconnect_callback”

    if it helps i run on windows 7 and i didnt download libusb or anythin other than NET framework 4

    i also have a 3g iphone runing software 4.2.1 (i think)

    plz help me

    •  
      Patrick3 years, 1 month ago

      Great! You never told me that your iPhone 3G is on iOS 4.2.1 :| FYI Recboot and TinyUmbrella (Normal Version) will not work on iOS 4.2.1 and above. To kick all iPhones running iOS 4.2.1 or above, you need a special version of TinyUmbrella called TU (Fix Recovery). Just download the DOS-based fix recovery for iOS 4.2.1 from here. In a ZIP file, you will find fixrecovery421.exe. Just follow instructions here http://bit.ly/iMHlBp (Though instructions are for iOS 4.3.3 but they are still same for all iPhones running iOS 4.2.1)

    Hi Wolverine. Please HELP me!!!. I have an iphone 3gs JB with redsnow on 4.2.1 firmware with Ipad baseband.

I have a lot of pictures of my daugher on there that i would not like to lose ;(. Please tell me what i gave to do. I just want to exit recovery screen and get back to normal without losing my pictures.

      Wolverine3 years, 2 months ago

      Download TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) from here http://bit.ly/f1adIc (Use the download links under Update#1) TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) is a DOS based app (NOT Gui). Once downloaded, run fixrecovery421.exe and follow this guide http://bit.ly/iMHlBp

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 1 month ago

          The “60000ms” error tends to occur when the servers are overloaded, you are firewalled, or there is some other error with your internet connection.

          Make sure you have no firewalls enabled, you are running on as unfettered an internet connection as possible (i.e. not at work), and just try again.

            Wolverine3 years, 1 month ago

            Which tool you are using? Are you sure you are using RecBoot? Because RecBoot will never throw “unable to mount user filesystem” error.

            Yes, it is necessary to install otherwise you will get errors while running RecBoot. I am not sure why TinyUmbrella is not working for you. It is the best alternative of Recboot

    Jesse James3 years, 3 months ago

    And if I don’t have ShSh blobs for 4.1? Why wouldn’t custom just work?

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Because custom or stock IPSW of old firmwares need SHSH blobs to restore via iTunes unless you are iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G (MB) user. This check is from Apple to discourage its users from downgrading firmwares on their iDevices.

  •  
    Jesse James3 years, 3 months ago

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      As you are an iPod Touch user, the best way to kick your iPod out of recovery is to restore stock (Not custom) IPSW. If you have iOS 4.1 SHSH blobs, downgrade your firmware to iOS 4.1 using TinyUmbrella http://bit.ly/fK073B

      Can you tell me the name of files that are missing?

      •

        RecBoot needs libusb0.dll… Already put itunesmobiledevice.dll. TinyUmbrella says internal error, error code 16…what do you think?

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 4 months ago

          For TinyUmbrella, make sure you have latest version of JDK
          For Libusb0.dll error, get it from here

          •

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 4 months ago

            As you have iPhone 3G with iPad baseband, it means that you can NEVER restore STOCK IPSWs. You can only use custom IPSWs to downgrade or upgrade. Restoring stock IPSWs will result in infinite recovery mode loop. First step is to create fresh iPhone OS 3.1.2 custom IPSW for iPhone 3G (Recommended) or download iOS 3.1.2 custom IPSW from the links below:

            RAPIDSHARE:
            iPhone1_2_3.1.2_7D11_Custom_Restore-Activated.001
            iPhone1_2_3.1.2_7D11_Custom_Restore-Activated.002
            iPhone1_2_3.1.2_7D11_Custom_Restore-Activated.003

            Once done, use TinyUmbrella or Recboot to kick your iPhone out of recovery mode loop. If none of them is working on your PC, take them in USB and try them on another PC or Mac (Recommended) around you. Hopefully you will be able to kick your iDevice out of recovery mode loop.

            -firmware; Im not positive because my phone is stuck and i cant check it. the only other firmware i can find on my comp is 4.2.1, so i think that is it.
            -baseband; same deal, i believe it is 6.15.00 for ipad.

            i do rely on unlock. i want to downgrade so that i can get rid of ios, it made my phone so slow it was basically unusable….well now it is really unusabale. from what i read, i think i want to downgrade to 3.1.3.

            thanks for all your help so far. i hope im not screwed!

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            As you are on iPad baseband, so restoring stock IPSW of any firmware will result in infinite recovery loop. You can only restore custom IPSW of iOS 3.1.3. As you have iPhone 3G, so you do not need SHSH blobs to downgrade. So the solution is very simple:
            1. Download custom IPSW of iOS 3.1.3 from links below:
            Activated (Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3)
            Unactivated (Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3)
            2. Use iREB to put your iPhone in Pwned DFU Mode (It will avoid all 16xx errors)
            3. Restore with iTunes
            Use this guide if you need anymore help or simply comment here :)

            If you rely on unlock, download activated and if you are on official carrier, download unactivated only.

          •  
            Chris3 years, 3 months ago

            Alright, I downloaded all 3 of the activated links. Now what? Im assuming I will need to find them when I go to restore, do I select all 3?

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            No you need to join these three parts into one file .IPSW. You can use HJ-Split on Windows http://bit.ly/eFMvOq or BetterZip on Mac http://bit.ly/dWXVut
            Once done, restore the IPSW using the guide i told you.

    JJM3 years, 4 months ago

    I have tried at least 15 times to downgrade from 4.3 to 4.2.1. All my shsh blobs are saved going back to 4.0. Each time i do the restore I get the 1015 error. I then try either TinyUmbrella, Recboot or Blackra1n to get out of the recovery loop. NONE of them work. I finally upgrade back to 4.3. Any suggestions? I read your other post that says I should downgrade to 4.1. Would you do that?

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 4 months ago

      True! You can not exit recovery mode loop with RecBoot or TinyUmbrella (Normal) if your iPhone is running iOS 4.2.1 or above. To get out of iOS 4.2.1 or iOS 4.3 recovery mode loop, you need special version of TinyUmbrella called FixRecovery. Its a DOS-based app which uses GreenPois0n hack to kick those iDevices out of recovery who are stuck in recovery mode loop due to baseband protection feature.

      •

          Definitely something wrong with your PC. Make sure your iPhone is in DFU mode and try it on another PC.

    I restore the iphone and itunes gave the 1015 error. I turn on the recboot and my iphone is rebooted. Then, the apple logo appear and them the screen turn black, and reboot again (alone) and again show the recovery mode…
    What I can do?

      You must be on iOS 4.3 with tethered jailbreak? Right? Use iBooty to boot up your iPhone.

    Hello Wolverine. I have an IPhone 3GS with 4.2.1 on it. But I want to downgrade to 3.1.3 what can I do to get back to 3.1.3 ? Thx

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 4 months ago

      You can only downgrade of your iPhone OS 3.1.3 SHSH blobs are saved. If you want to restore stock iPhone OS 3.1.3, restore this using iTunes or restore the file below to have jailbroken iPhone OS 3.1.3 on your iPhone. In both cases, you must have iOS 3.1.3 SHSH saved.

    here’s my situation:
    i bought my iphone from a second hand shop here in japan and its already in that “connect to itunes” picture and the emergency call screen, is this the way to fix this? I think its in version 4.2.1. please help. Just getting past that screen and using my phone will be enough.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

      Some questions:
      First of all hacktivation means to bypass the emergency call screen.
      1. What is your iPhone mode? 3GS or 4?
      2. Do you rely on unlock? I suppose you are going to say yes.
      3. From the current situation, your iPhone is not hacktivated as your friend restored stock iOS 4.2.1 on your iPhone before giving it to you. If he jailbreaked it using Redsn0w or PwnageTool, it must have been already hacktivated.
      4. You can now jailbreak and hacktivate it using Redsn0w because using PwnageTool will be of no use (Your baseband is already upgraded to the one which is not unlockable at the moment)
      5. If you rely on unlock, wait for iOS 4.3 final as the unlock will be about when Apple will release iOS 4.3.

      You can always follow me on Facebook (Recommended) or Twitter for more quick answers to your questions.

    Wolverine, my son got an ipod touch (4 i think) for xmas. Put a password on then promptly forgot it!!!! It is now disabled cos he kept trying different passwords. I can’t restore via i-tunes as we were at my sisters house and used her computer. Is there any way i can sort this out without travelling 300 miles to do it? Please help.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

      Bypassing the passcode of iPhone or iPod Touch is nearly impossible. However there is a small bug in iOS 4 which can allow you to bypass that passcode and make calls, view contacts and photos etc. Check out this video to see how you can bypass the passcode http://youtu.be/pKT0fm2fx5A. In any case you have to restore your iPhone or iPod Touch to gain full access.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 7 months ago

      Yes, Recboot and TinyUmbrella don’t work if your device is on iOS 4.2.1. Only solution left is to downgrade your firmware to iOS 4.1 or less.

          Upgrading to iOS 4.2.1 will again put your iPhone into infinite recovery mode loop. Better wait for iPhone Dev-Team’s response to this issue!

    Hey guys I have a slight problem with my iphone 3g firmware 4.0. My power button is completely messed up and now I can’t put the phone in DFU mode when I’m trying to use Redsn0w or Limera1n.

        So I’m back to the same old situation.

        Is there any other way out?
        Thanks for the help! :D

            A. I don’t have the official sim to activate it and navigate to jailbreakme.
            B. My phones hardware is completely messed up and my wifi doesn’t work too. (I know you’d be laughing at what actually is left it in my phone. lol )
            C. Any more solutions left?

    fryta3 years, 7 months ago

    HI

    Problem of course

    when I try to Enter recovery mode, i have a message that there is no file iTunesMobileDevice.DLL and iTunes is installed? Am I missing something?

    And another one, my iP have a broken Power button, it is upgraded to 4.1

    I wan to use limera1n. When it wants me to push home + power, then I am clicking “enter recovery mode” at RecBoot and it will work? Correct me if I am wrong

    Thanks for helpin’ in advance

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 7 months ago

      Yep, download iTunesMobileDevice.DLL by Googling and place it in Recboot’s directory. Recboot should work now, you can now put as well as kick your iPhone out of recovery mode with this handy tool.

      •  
        Fryta3 years, 7 months ago

        Wolverine, thanks alot for answering.

        But will it work with limera1n like I described? cause yesterday I was fighting with this iP for 3 hours, and still it is not jailbroken.

        Please give me some hope ]:)

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 7 months ago

          Nops. To use Limer1n, you must put your device in DFU mode which is not supported by Recboot. Can i know your iPhone model and baseband version so that i may further assist you!

          •  
            Fryta3 years, 7 months ago

            3G 4.1
            My problem is that my wife upgraded it by accident to 4.1 and there is no problem, cause U can JB 4.1, but as I said before Power button is broken and I have no idea how to JB it, cause i need DFU when limera1n wants it.
            But form manual method which U described above it looks that this app is all I need. Cause limera1n wants me only to:
            1 Home + power
            2 release power
            and then things go on by them selves [:) so from the description, I was sure that this is what I was lookin for ]:/

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 7 months ago

            Well, there is a difference between recovery mode and DFU mode. Anyways try Recboot, if it didn’t worked, then tell me. I have an alternate solution to this!

    Will this work without the original sim. Basically I traded my blackberry for an iphone 4, I did that restore thingy and then it won’t activate because it needs the original sim. My mate is in NY so I doubt I can get his sim :p and I can’t contact my suppliers because they try to sign me up to another contract! Would this work then to activate the phone? Cheers x

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 7 months ago

      No, its only for kicking the iDevice out of recovery mode. Your issue is hacktivation! Can you please tell me what firmware and baseband version your iPhone 4 currently have?

    How can I jailbreak my version 4.1 (8B117) baseband 02.10.04

    Someone please email me on savani4u [at] hotmail.com and guide me.

    Much appreciated.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 7 months ago

      From your baseband, i think you have iPhone 4 on iOS 4.1. Jailbreak it using Limera1n (Windows | Mac) or GreenPois0n (Windows | Mac)

    Recboot doesnt work for me. I had 4.2.1 then went down to 4.0 before trying “recboot”. But it doesnt help, the device stays in recovery mode. This is what the cmd window shows when running recboot. The device keeps rebooting.

    C:\RecBoot_v1.1\RecBoot>iTunnel –autoboo
    t
    Will try to kick connected devices out of the Recovery mode..
    recovery_connect_callback
    recovery_disconnect_callback

    I also tried TinyUmbrella and that doesnt help either. This is from TinyUmbrella log:

    Thanks this worked alot.. it really helps me.. at first, my screen was blank and i could not even turn on my iphone 3gs. Restore at iTunes will stop halfway and show error 9..
    Then i did this:
    1. Remove iTunes and other apple software, restart pc, reinstall fresh itunes from Apple website
    2. Still with my iPhone blank screen, i open my new iTunes
    3. Log off my account and use another person account
    4. Connect my iPhone to the pc using usb cable
    5. Run “recboot.exe”
    6. I press restore btn at iTunes
    7. Halfway through the restore(before it stops and show error 9), i press the “exit recovery mode” button on ‘recboot’
    8. My screen goes blank again
    9. I disconnect iphone usb and close my itunes
    10. Open my itunes and reconnect iphone using usb
    11. I click on restore btn again at itunes
    12. It completely recovers my iphone 3gs completely using the latest firmware 4.1

    It works.. thanks a million to the person who program “recboot”. u r a genious. and also to the people who opens this website. thanks again. :):):)
