    Hi,

    My Iphone will not turn on. I've pushed the power button, held the power and home button for DFU restore, connected it by USB to my mac, Itunes doesn't recognize it. The phone seems totally bricked. It was originally firmware v1.02, upgraded to v1.13 with Ziphone 2.5, and when I started having constant reboot issues, I did a DFU restore and installed Pwnage 1.1. But it still continued to have white screen flashes and rebooting. Now the phone seems dead. What options do I have? At the very least I'd like to do a factory restore so I can take it to the Apple Store without them seeing that pineapple icon upon startup. Any help would be most appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Alexander

    My ipad 16GB wifi is dead, completely dead. I donít know what happened, it was sitting on the shelf and didnīt turn on one day. Tried everything (from pressing buttons to slamming it on my knee). Nothing has worked so far. Skeptical about replacing battery because nothing happens when connected to AC via USB. As I said, itís completely dead. Black screen. Itís a shame, because I think itís less than a year old but canít prove it. Any ideas before putting it in the garbage. Thanks.

    What do you mean you can't prove it's less then a year old?? Didn't the iPad come out in April?? Common sense should be used in your case!!
