I’ve gotten the black screen and can’t get out of it. It all started when I restored and tether jailbroke my phone on iOS 4.3.5 using redsn0w 0.9.10b after a recovery screen malfunction. I used PwnageTool, redsn0w and TinyUmbrella with SHSH blobs.
The phone worked fine and I began downloading tweaks from Cydia (SBSettings, iFile, Android Lock XT). At this point I realized the respring screen displayed a pinapple rather than the usual waiting animation. Didn’t make much deal out of it until I downloaded OpenSSH and was prompted for a reboot, not considering the outcomes. I pressed “Reboot Device” and was gifted with the DFU (black screen). I’ve tried for days to get it out of the mode.
First, hoping for the apple display I tried,
Pressing the Power button for several seconds, simultaneously holding Power and Home, releasing Power (no luck)
Then restoring using:
– TinyUmbrella > Start TSS Server
– redsn0w >Pwned DFU
– iTunes > Restore 4.3.5
Did this several times. Still stuck with the black display. I’m not exactly sure what to do and would prefer to solve this issue without updating and restoring through iTunes on the current firm/baseband. All help and advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
