Cant Restore Need Help!!!
Ok...Ill try and be as detailed as possible. I picked up a used iphone 4 32GB GSM last week. It is on 5.1. I have the blobs saved and have even made custom IPSW with it. I had jailbroken(Tethered )and have had no problems all week. Today I went to uninstall something in cydia which required a reboot. Not a problem. Turned off the phone and preformed a just boot from Redsn0w 9.11b4(Newest i believe)
The phone only went to the pineapple and got stuck there. I tried the process a few more times before giving up and deciding to do a fresh restore. Every time I tried to restore I would get some kind of error 1600 3194 21 20 1 etc... Tried a fresh clean ipsw, custom with stiched blobs and getting some kind of error. Tried edits the hosts and checking tiny umbrella and making sure everything was correct, as seen on many "Fix" threads.
So here I am. The phone can either be in dfu mode, recovery (apple log and plug) but no matter what I do, nothing works. Reinstalled iTunes, restored computer to a previous point. Everything I could think of or even read. Im afraid the phone is beyond repair and possibly bricked. The only other weird thing that happens, I just tried it now, is I tried to jailbreak, installed cydia, and then tether booted without restoring as I am not able to. It gets past the pineapple this time and the phone makes that connection noise and the window on my pc opens up to show the dcim storage on the phone and there is a spinning circle on the phone. It makes a connection ding but does not change. I am hoping someone can help me out and save this phone and hope its not gone too far.
FYI I am using H2O wireless. The phone is not unlocked, although I do have a Gevey sim if need be but as H2O uses ATT towers I havent needed it.
