iphone 5 keeps rebooting itself. I can't update or restore it because it keeps rebooting itself before it the update/restore is complete. Any reason why it started doing this? and any tips on how to fix it?
My iphone recently started diong the boot logo loop where it would show the logo... Go black.. show the logo and repeat. i read on here that i should be putting it in recovery and then recovering it. Well, when i try to recover on iTunes i get error 2001 can't restore. When it starts restoring as soon as it gets to Waiting For iphone... My screen goes black and then i get the 2001 error. is it possible that it's my battery? or is my iphone no longer usable? I have tried using all of the tips on Apple's guides and support. So I know it has to be a hardware issue.

Hey Guys! I am posting on behalf of my mate as this is his phone. Unfortunatly his iphone 5 (purchased under contract from Vodafone Australia) has stopped working in a way that I have never seen. Upon booting with the Apple logo appearing, white text appears in the top left of the screen. This is the following text: [NAND] _FindflashMediaAndKeepout:601 physical nand block offset1[NAND] start:356 this 0x89ba1400 PROVIDER=0x89b380 flashmedia=0x89b3b380[NAND] WMR_Start:149 Apple PPN NAND Drive, Read/Write[NAND] WMR_Start:174 FIL_Init [OK][NAND] s_cxt_boot:80 sftl: error, unclean shutdown; adopted 92 spans[NAND] WMR_Open:420 FTL_Open [OK][NAND] _publishServices:642 FTL capabilities: 0x00000001[NAND] _ppnvfGetStruct:3469 Checking borrowed blocks - count: 23 max_count: 23[NAND] _fetchBorrowedList:881 number of borrowed blocks 16 I am unable to restore it as this keeps appearing on the screen as it restarts the device upon completetion of the extraction. I have tried restore mode and DFU mode with the same issue. Any help would be gladly accepted! Thanks, Goddo

I got a new iphone 5c today. I backed up my old iphone 4 on icloud but now I don't know how to get the information to my new phone. I keep reading things about going through the set up process but I guess they did all of that at the store so now I don't know where to restore the icloud backup. Please help.
Hi, I have a bad situation here... My iphone 5 got stuck in recovery mode after I tried to update to iOS 7.1.1 from 7.0.4 and it failed (error code 6). If this was my iPod touch I would just restore it because all I have is music, but this iphone has all my sisters graduation photos, important photos, important school documents, contacts, app data, videos from concerts. Etc. I was wondering if I could get the photos off the phone before restoring it, because they are important. I know I should've backed up my photos and made a backup of the phone, but I've been really busy with a lot of stuff. So I was just wondering if there is any way to get the photos and app data back. The app data doesn't really matter but the photos do. The device was not jailbroken or hacked in any way. If you could help, tell me ASAP. -JP
Hi. When I was at work I left my phone on the side and people tried to get into it, but after typing in the passcode wrong too many times, my phone now says 'iphone is disabled, connect to iTunes'. I have connected to iTunes and I cant seem to do anything, I have tried to restore my phone but it says I can only do this if i type in my passcode, but it will only let me emergency call so how am I supposed to type it in? I am concerned as my phone is the older version iOS, so i cant even update my software now. I have no idea how to get back into my phone.
Hi, so I shipped in my iphone 5s for repair under the 1 year warranty plan and just recieved my confirmation mail and it states that Problem Description: Power - Will not power off I did not state the the power will not power off when I was submiting a repair request, I wrote the problem was that when i sometimes call someone the ringing and the other person on the line sounds different and the other person on the line say my voice sound different and sometime they can barely hear me, and i even restore my phone... Is there anyway of contacting apple about this??, my call phone support and chat support expire already
This phone won't hold it's charge. It has been restored, setup as a new phone but not activated and then turned off and yet the battery still dies. When it is setup it wouldn't last a day either that is why I tried the restore and set it up as a new phone. I want to sell it but I can't while it is behaving the way it is. It has a new battery so it isn't the battery. Just don't know why it is doing it when as I said it has been reset to a new phone but left at the 'hello' screen and turned off and it still goes flat.

YOU ACCIDENTALLY DELETED 'APPLE NOTES' DEFAULT MAIL ACCOUNT... OR JUST LOST ALL YOUR NOTES? Okay so after an hour on apple support chat and getting no where at all... this is what I did: Firstly... I'm assuming you backed up your iphone to iTunes... otherwise STOP READING NOW... you're doomed. Secondly... you need your laptop or desktop and I'm talking about a Mac so if you're on a PC... you might still be doomed? Begin... >>>DO NOT CONNECT YOUR iphone<<< Now launch iTunes. Go to MENU - iTunes - Preferences.Click on Devices. There you will see your latest Device backups. Top of the list will be your most recent backup. This is the one you'll have to back up from... so if there's anything on your phone after this date that you don't want to loose... your doomed.(But you might not be if you can copy it and email it to yourself). Now... tick the box 'Prevent iPods blah, blah... from syncing automatically'... DO THIS!!!! DO THIS BIT NEXT: Get your iphone. Go to settings - and select Cellular... REMEMBER WHERE THIS IS!Remember also... how to turn off 'Celular Data' and 'Enable 3G'... practise doing this a couple of times!Go back to settings, select 'WiFi'... practise turning that off also. Now then... you can't turn these off now because the restore will turn them back on again! You NEED an internet connection in order to complete the restore FROM BACKUP... so it's no good turning that off either. Basically... you've got to prevent your iphone from connecting to the Default Account... where all your Notes were... and are no more! If it does connect it will wipe all the notes you just restored from backup off your phone and... you'll be doomed again. THIS WORKED IN MY CASE... but my WiFi signal is not brilliant (and it's a pain trying to turn the router off as it's hidden in the wall behind the telly)! If this doesn't work first time, either you're an OAP with the reactions of a snail with arthritis (I told you to practise that bit didn't I!)... or you'll need a trusty assistant standing by the router ready to turn it off when you shout "NOW!" Okay here goes... Step 1) Connect your iphone to iTunes, wait for it to show up there. Step 2) Go to the Summary tab - Backups and hit 'restore Backup'. Step 3) Keep an eye on your phone... it'll say 'restoring'... wait for it... then you'll get a little pop up thing in iTunes, ignore that... then the phone will reboot. Step 4) PAY ATTENTION! The apple logo appears... wait for it... progress bar appears... get ready... phone will buzz (if you've got vibration on)... get ready... home screen appears... SHOUT "NOW"!!! Step 5) QUICKLY!!! Dissconnect your phone from the USB cable or dock... too slow man! Quickly access settings and TURN ALL THOSE THINGS YOU PRACTISED... OFF!!!DO NOT OPEN NOTES before you do this or... you're doomed again. Now we're back in the game... Step 6) Open Notes... there's all your old notes "I know you"! Step 7) Open the first note (I hope you don't want them all... cos you'll be here for ages) press the little box with an arrow (or forward icon) select 'copy'. Step 8) Open Mail... write a new email... paste your Note there! Keep doing this untill you've got all your Notes pasted there... thensend the email to yourself. JUST DO THAT NOW... before you do anything else! Clean up your iphone... Step 9) Go to Settings on your iphone, go to Mail, Contacts, Calenders... select iCloud and turn Notes ON. Yeah get an iCloud account, it's free. Forget gmail.com man! Step 10) Go Back to Settings, select Notes... make Default Account... iCloud. 'It'll say 'delete all notes?' Well they aren't there anyway fool... so **** yeah! Step 11) Now you can turn all those WiFi and Cellular things back on again. Get on your desktop/laptop... Step 12) Go to Finder - Apple Logo - System Preferences... hit the iCloud icon. Tick Notes ON. Step 13) Open Notes, open you're email that you sent yourself... copy and make lots of new Notes! Get yer iphone... Step 14) ... there's all your Notes synced to your iphone by those nice people at Apple iCloud! Then ask yourself this question... why does it have to be this complicated? Good luck! If not... you're doomed.
First my iphone was stuck on searching where my service usually is. I read a ton of fourms and watched YouTube videos, and everything led to restoring your phone. So, when i plugged my phone into my computer and pressed restore, it stopped during the restore and say an error had occured, (9) . i read what error 9 was and someone had said the usb cord. so i switched my cords with the one i orginally got with the phone. I've been trying multiple times and i've gotten error 21, and error 3. Help!
I got a loaner phone today while they fix my sleep/lock button and was told I couldn't do a full computer restore. I was shocked and forgot to ask if this was because I have 30G and the loaner was a 15G or if I'm just not allowed to pick what I put on it. I don't need a bunch of music, but I'd like as much of my phone back as I can get for the next week.
Recently purchased a damaged iphone 5s and after replacing the screen and battery I turned it on and was stuck on the red charge logo. After a little research saw that I should recover the phone so put it in to recovery mode and tried restore and update. Towards the end of the restore the phone screen flashed blue and I got ERROR 9. I tried again after putting the phone in DFU mode and got the same result.any body got any tips?
I changed my Apple account to a new email address and away from an address that was discarded last summer. Somehow, in the process, all my Notes word processing documents left my iphone. Did they go to the icloud for my old Apple account or just disappear completely? I can't access the old icloud since it requires a working up-to-date email address. Apple Security so far has not been able to help me restore my orphaned files. What to do now?!
I recently bought an iphone 5 online and I am having to restore it so that I am able to switch carriers. Im have been seeing where it should only take 30 mins. to a hour, but mine has been going for like 8 or 9 hours! Any help?

Hi Sooo this afternoon after having just made a call (30-60 seconds prior) I tried to use my phone.Somehow my screen was stuck and would not let me swipe between my pages. After that the screen simply went black. No matter what I have tried the screen wont do anything. When I hold down my Home button SIRI 'beeps' as to signal she is ready for a command. No matter what I say SIRI does not respond untill 30 secs or so later saying "I didn't quit get that". Through all of this my screen remains black. I do hear phonecalls coming in but can not answer them as the screen simply seems to have stopped working/broken?!? I can not do the usual reset with holding the Lock and Home button bc my Lock button was already busted >> a few months ago it became harder and harder to lock my phone untill the Lock-button stopped working completely.I figured out that there is a software solution and have had a 'floating button' on the screen to turn off my phone. I also tried hooking it up to my Itunes and restore from backup but I have to turn of my 'locate my iphone'.The only way for me to turn of my Locate-my-iphone is on my phone & I cant get into it. you guys still with me ? Anyone seen anything like this? or any suggestions? Thank you Bc I am not sure what to do I will likely set up an appointment with the genius bar for tomorrow afternoon, but I hope to figure it out before that
I had to reset my iphone 4 to the factory settings and then restore it. Well i have restored it atleast six times and it still is making me restore it. What do i do???
Hello, I have bought a new phone and continue to want to use my iphone as an ipod pretty much. I am wanting to restore it but unfortunately the wifi button/option is dulled or greyed out. I cannot restore the device on the computer without turning off find my iphone. well, i cannot do that without wifi. so i went to icloud.com to turn it off that way, and it still has not worked. i have tried turning it on and off, resetting it by holding the home button and lock button, tried resetting the network settings multiple times. Ive come out of ideas, and no more answers on any other forums. I cannot go to an apple store considering the closest one to me is about 100 miles away. the wifi button has been greyed out for months now, but when i switched phones i did not think about restoring the phone while it was still activated. can someone please help? it would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys
Since I updated my iphone 4s to the iOS 7, the "e" and "S" on my keypad don't work. I have tried to restore my iphone, however my apple password has both an "e" and an "s" in it and it won't allow me to restore without entering the apple password. Help!!!
I have an iphone 5s, with iOS v 7.1.1. Whenever I open whatsapp, I seem to be getting the Blue Screen Of Death. I've also had all its variants. I have done all the fixes recommended - except taking it to the store. 1) Have done a complete restore using iTunes, completely deleted whatsapp and data, reinstalled it. And the same issue continues.2) I removed whatsapp again today - but the constant restarting and blue screens have not stopped. Very frustrating to have this happen in a phone I bought less than a month back. Any similar experiences? And fixes?
i have an iphone 4s and an update was available for the software so i installed it and now my phone will not get out of recovery mode. I am trying to find out if there is any other solution to this problem other than restoring my phone and losing everything on my phone.
Apparently i have 48+ hours to wait for it to download. it took like three minutes for the new 100 mb update. im just trying to restore my iphone 4 GSM. Everything else downloads relatively quickly.

Then it went back to searching, restored again while talking with Apple (from Italy), it worked a day and restored again now have error 3 message when firmware is almost installed. Help. New phone is 2 weeks out of the box.
My phone is saying it needs to be restored by itunes, but I don't wanna lose my media, and I don't think my phone has been backed up so I'm not sure how I'll get my media back. Is there anyway to get the itunes and charger logo off my phone and get it back to the home page? I've just come back from holiday and really don't want all my pics to be gone. :'(
How about trying the troubleshooting steps as recommended in the User Guide--restart, reset, restore from backup, restore as new.
I purchased an iphone 5s yesterday and am trying to restore the phone from the icloud backup. It has been doing this since 11am yesterday. Is this normal?
I have tried to restore my iphone 5s in iTunes but keep getting a message saying unable to restore, error 4013. I have used different USB ports as other messages have advised but nothing has worked. Can anyone please help ?
I'm using a windows 7 and had been trying several times of delete backup folder, configure firewall, change setting in notepad++...This took me 2yrs to figure out by looking at the forums and searching and finding until I found apple suppport communities. I had a iphone 3gs with IOS 4.3.3, I need to backup first and update to IOS 5.1.1 then restore back in order I can replace a newer iphone.Meanwhile after I finished backup of my 3gs it did have the folder appear in my backup folder stated today date. But in the itunes itdoesn't have any single backup listing at the itunes preferences for me to click. at the this moment I dare not go ahead and restore myiphone 3gs it might erase the whole phone and can't restore cause there is no backup list in there. I might want to try the "update your phone without backup" but I'm not sure will this erase all my data too. Any helpers would able to assist me on this matter, if there is solution I might need a basic elaborate not too much technical type.
