Has any one found a reason for the back up not working, and a way to get around this? From a 5.8-inch OLED display, reports of wireless charging and even a 3D scanner for facial recognition, it's all here.
I have a jailbroken i Phone 3gs which runs i OS 4.1 (8B117).
After trying from 3 different computers (2 with Vista & a Mac Book pro), reloaded i Tunes, changed the proxy settings. I have a 3G i Phone, 14.64Gb, little less than 1/2 full, trying to update from ios3 to ios4 Did you resolve this?
As itunes was offering 6.1.3 as latest update few days ago i thought of updating it first via itunes and later downgrade the BB and jailbreak it via redsn0w. In dfu/pwned mode its showing the server unavailable.
But itunes is saying apple update server could not be connected and insisting me to check my internet connection. Afterthat my phone got worse, i could use the phone for all other options except the sim card. However,later i tried ifaith to buld signed ISPW but as itunes remained the same and redsn0w does not accept custom ISPW other than its i m could not update.
There may be lots of people trying to update, but this not really a comfort nor an adequate excuse.
I, like you, couldn't get it to do a full backup, not to mention, (within a resonable amount of time - 40hrs) get it to the actual update.
And might I be damaging something by leaving it "hung up"?
You are on the right track but you have to be patient because it took me approximately over five hours to download it last week.thank you I have had a few issues trying to find out how to update my jailbroken and unlocked i Phone and noticed there are very few complete guides for those half-initiated into jailbreaking and unlocking, telling us exactly what to do exactly to avoid glitches.So here is my guide as to what you need to do if you want to update/upgrade your i Phone's OS and still preserve the ability to unlock it.I have the latest i Tunes version installed (v.11). I'd be really really grateful for any kind of help. I've tried updating by just hitting Update/Restore, by manually downloading the firmware and then doing Shift Restore. So again, be patient my friend you are not the only one trying to download this new update.
