  10. Lone Wolf says:

    Try going to settings and doing a reset from the iphone itself. My ipod can do that so i assume the iphone can too. Choose the erase all content and settings. i’m pretty sure it’s like a factory reset through the computer. use at your own risk though because i’m not 100% sure. HOPE IT WORKS!

    also, will the restore method mentioned above restore the game save, basicly does the backup actually backup the games progress?

I have come across the itunes icon + usb icon. With the cable connected my laptop doesn’t pick up the connection. I’ve used 2 cables, no luck. What do I need to do? I have also done the hard reset, which brings up the apple icon but then it goes back to the ITUNES+USB Icon’s.

    hi.. i want to ask. how long will it take to restore my device? cos I’ve been waiting for like ages and still it’s not yet finished. please help..

  60. Brittany says:

    Hi…so my friend convinced me to jail brake my iphone 4 instead of updating the software. (not happy, it ruined my phone) after seeing everything run slowly, I tried looking for different ways to get the programs like cydia off there. I finally figured that part out, but now, my internet and email stopped working completely. I deleted every app I had and it still says I only have 1.1 GB available out of 5. I’ve read every forum online to try and figure this out…when I plug it into a windows computer, itunes can’t read the contents of my device. I try to just restore it and window pops up and says the iphone software update server could not be contacted. I’ve tried to do the ctrl+restore AND shift+restore. NOTHING is working. i’ve tried to reboot by holding power button and home button. I’ve tried to put it into DFU mode, does nothing. The person that did it told me to go to absinthe 5.1.1 unjailbrake. I googled it and found some forums that showed me different options to help, but nothing is working. I feel like I have a very specific problem, I haven’t seen anyone with ALL the same issues as myself.HELPPPP

  61. Tristan says:

    will this delete the information on my ipod

  62. hereyougo says:

    Well you should back up your ipod and that saves all progress of all of your apps. Then you should move onto redsn0w and all of your apps will be deleted, which you can get back on itunes and the backup, just click restore backup and your backup password

  71. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
