[SOLVED] iphone 2g endless openiboot loop
« on: November 13, 2010, 11:44:25 PM »
yesterday i installed idroid with bootlace onto my iphone 2g and it was working fine and dandy, except i accidentally pressed the power and home button together and made it hard reset. now it is stuck in an endless openiboot loop. pressing the power button as if to turn it off, makes it run the linux stuff (lines and lines of code n stuff)
from what i read online, i need to enter some sort of commands in the console to empty the nand flash but my problem is that my phone, wont do anything other than run openiboot.
is there someone else here who has a similar case like mine?
is there any sort of fix for me?

If you previously installed iPhodroid then used Bootlace, refer to this link:
http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Recovering_from_iphodroid

If not, please be a little more specific, because from what you describe, the above link will solve it.

no i did not install iphodroid.
so i went to the link i posted. how exactly would i use the terminal commands on osx?
i dont think my computer detects my iphone.

"3. Open Linux or OS X terminal, and enter the command:
sudo ./oibc
4. Once you are in the OpeniBoot console, enter these commands:
printenv
If it displays "opib-hide-menu true" then set it to false by entering the command:
setenv opib-hide-menu false
saveenv
5. Then reboot:
reboot"
was that what you were refering to?

Sorry the link was if you used iphodroid in the past.

Uhm ignore the above link if you never used iphodroid at all.  It's only useful if you used iPhodroid.

Can you boot into iOS?  Sorry I thought you meant you keep booting into OpeniBoot console and can't boot into other OS.

You can try a DFU if all else fails

Ok so the link above is helpful.

You need to use oibc for osx. You can get it from http://idroid.nickpack.com/openiBoot/Tools/ then pick the oibc-osx.

You need to use OS X 10.6. We didn't have one compiled for Leopard.
You also need to have libreadline installed.

You need to install libusb...

You are still not yet in oibc console because oibc cannot run without libusb library.

hi
so i got stuck for a while and i gave up but im back at it again and this time i think i've made some progress.
so i run sudo ./oibc and this is what i see


oiB client connected:
!<filename>[@<address>] to send a file, ~<filename>[@<address>]:<len> to receive a file
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

im not sure what i am supposed to do from there

the directions tell me to type "printenv" but that doesnt do anything
