iPhone 4 Automatically Reboots When Playing Recorded Video

H guys, I am using a jailbroken iPhone 4, it is on iOS 4.3.3, and at the moment the device is stuck in recovery mode. I recorded a video using stock camera app and tried to preview it. I am not sure what happened but unfortunately my iPhone automatically rebooted and got itself stuck in recovery mode loop. I really need to sync this video as well as other files stored on my iPhone. Any ideas how to fix this or find out what the issue is?

Hello Bethany, first, you need to use TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) to kick your iPhone out of recovery mode. The step by step guide on how to use the standalone TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) can be found below:

Step 1: Download the latest version TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) for Windows (Direct Link) or for Mac OS X (Direct Link).

Step 2: Download Zlib1.dll from here and put it in the same location where fixrecovery43.exe is located.

Step 3: Then connect your iPhone 4 into the computer via USB cable and power OFF your device.

Step 4: Now, launch iTunes as well as the downloaded TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) and put your iPhone into DFU mode.

  • Press and hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds.
  • Then release Power button after 10 seconds but continue holding the Home button for another 10 seconds.

Step 5: That’s it! TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) will start fixing the error on your device.

Once you have successfully kicked your iPhone out of recovery mode, try to hard reset your iPhone by pressing on the switch on the top right and the home button until you see the Apple Logo. Once rebooted, connect your iPhone into your computer and sync it. Also, uninstall all the tweaks and apps that you have installed for your camera or camcorder, as well as download Crash Reporter from Cydia to determine the root cause of the issue. Once done, try to play the video. If you got stuck in recovery mode again, use TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) and then restore your device to iOS 4.3.5. Hopefully, you have a saved SHSH blobs so that you could downgrade it back to iOS 4.3.3, if not then follow this guide on how to backup SHSH blobs using iFaith. Then connect your iPhone to your computer again and hit on the Restore option. Once on iOS 4.3.5, restore your backup and play the video again. If the error still occurs, then the best thing to do is take them to AT&T or Apple Store to get a warranty fix or replacement.
