    Hey Guys -

    After switching to an HTC One (Android) a couple of months ago, I retired my 4S. I just wanted a change and sure got one! I thought the other day that I'd like to switch between the two when I wanted to since they both take the same SIM. Unfortunatly, I'm having an issue with it...

    The Issue
    When I power the phone on, it stays at the Apple Logo - even overnight. I do know that it was on iOS 7.0.x and jailbroken - however - I can't get it to go back to the springboard and know that restoring firmware will wipe the jailbreak. I do have the SHSH blobs via TinyUmbrella / & Cydia, but last I heard you cannot restore newer iOSs with them

    Here's What I've Tried So Far
    - Ran "Exit Recovery" in TinyUmbrella (newest version) in both Recovery & DFU mode - no go
    - Ran "Fix Recovery" (only works in DFU mode) - After clicking and confirming, nothing happened...
    - Ran SemiRestore (newest version) - App wouldn't recognize iPhone in Recovery, DFU, or any other state

    I'd really like to keep my jailbreak if at all possible so am hoping that there's a method I'm not remembering or tool that's come along while I've been out of the scene for a while that can help.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!!

    If nothing like ifunbox or semi restore can see the phone when it is at the apple logo there isn't really anything you can do. You would need access to the file system to be able to fix whatever the issue is. And with a 4s none of the dfu tricks that may work with an i4 will work due to lack of a bootrom exploit.

    Stupid question: have you tried holding the Volume Up button as the device boots up?

    That's the only thing I can think of that hasn't been mentioned yet...

    Not a stupid question at all Orby. Forgot about that myself.
