How to fix some mysterious problems.

I jailbreak an iPhone 4 with redsn0w 0.9.12b2 and everything was fine. Later I tried to do a clean restore with iTunes, and gave me an error. The iPhone goes to recovery mode.

I tried to jailbreak again (the same redsn0w 0.9.12b2) but gave me this error: "ERROR Please performa a clean "slide to power off" and try again."

The problem is that the iPhone does not start in normal mode.

I have tried with Tinyumbrella and redsn0w to fix recovery loop, with no luck.

Now I don't know what to do next.

You need to tell us the iTunes restore error code so we will know what to fix.

Unfortunately error -1 is often a sign of hardware problems, as Apple says here:

This may indicate a hardware issue with your device. Follow Troubleshooting security software issues, and restore your device on a different known-good computer. If the errors persist on another computer, the device may need service.

Have you done anything unusual with the baseband on this device? TheiPhoneWiki says error -1 may also mean:

Error occurs when one uses the "last ditch" method for preventing baseband updates on the iPhone 4. The baseband does not get updated using this method. Use TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery mode.

Thank you for your answer.

I've just confirmed the iPhone is broken.

This iPhone has been recently changed the LCD screen. They do something wrong with the phone. I've tried with tiny umbrella to kick it out of recovery mode, but with no luck.

I could finally jailbreak it with redsnow after many times. But the iPhone has no wifi, no Bluetooth, neither can do or receive calls.

Thanks again, I'm gonna kill service technician...
