Within recent weeks I have set up a provisioning profile on my iPhone 4 and have tested my own apps on it. A few days after I installed a couple apps on my phone through Xcode, I realized that the phone wouldn't turn on, even though it had full battery. I held the home and hold buttons to restart the phone and then it turned on with a red and yellow striped screen, as if there were some hardware failure. I restarted it again and it booted up just fine, and a few more instances similar to that happened, failing to put forth a display on the screen. I scheduled a Genius Bar appointment and the Apple guy put my phone into recovery mode to get it out of developer mode to be able to see more of the crash logs. When he tried to restore it, the restoration would fail about 30% into the process, giving us an error code that said that the USB had been disconnected, even though it wasn't. He concluded that there is an internal problem (no physical hardware damage) in the USB receiver of the phone. He also mentioned that he saw other people had the same problem after they had set up their provisioning profiles. I tried restoring my phone on my Mac from backup, but it would also fail at about 30%. I tried restoring it through Xcode, but Xcode didn't even recognize that it was plugged in, although iTunes could.
The really weird part is that I could restore it to its factory settings on a PC (not restoring to backup) but not on another Mac computer (also not restoring to backup), so that I had a functional phone, but when I tried to restore to backup on my Mac after it was out of recovery mode, it would fail half way through, putting it back into recovery mode. On both Macs, it would give me the 1600-1604 USB connection errors.
There's obviously something wrong with the backup, but how could Xcode have done this to my phone? and should I set up my phone for the provisioning profile again and test apps after I figure out how to fix the phone?
Sorry for the long story... I felt the details were necessary.
And if this is in the wrong section I apologize for that too; I couldn't find an appropriate section in the DevForums.
Thank you for any/all help.
