    I bought an iphone 4, 4.3.5 locked to at&t. i tried to jailbrake it with redsnow and restored it to 4.3.3 with custom firmware from snowbreeze. everything went smoothly, no errors but now my phone is not responding. I can't reboot it or get out of DFU mode. Well i am not sure what is wrong with it, the screen is black, i cant turn it on tried everything but when i keep the home button pressed for a few seconds it makes noses. Anyway have a clue what is wrong with it? help please. thank you

      Eye riss,

      if the solutions above do not work for you, I recommend that you submit a new question.

      So you never make mistakes?

    • John Jarvin

      I don't mean to be rude Tina, but you are kind of a useless waste of space who likes to cut corners when it comes to doing your job. Im pretty sure eighty percent of the responses I have read from you included something about asking a new question. Its really annoying and the repetitiveness is starting to make me wonder if you are human at all. You sound like a goddamn robot.

      the main purpose of my work here is to help people getting their tech issues solved. This doesn't mean that I answer all of the questions myself, although I do respond to some if I happen to know the answer. We do have many experienced contributors, staff, volunteers, and random visitors like yourself, in other words people with various professional backgrounds, who, as a collective, do a far better job at solving tech issues than myself. Hence, I try to make sure questions get those people's face time.

      Having managed this forum for close to two years, I know that questions within a comment thread hardly ever receive a response. Thus I started recommending people to ask a new question. Getting your question on the MakeUseOf Answers front page is the best way to receive a solution.
