How to Flash Iphone 3gs

It would seem that it could be easier than restoring an iOS device to a computer. However, a fairly common question that our novice iOS readers ask us is: “How to reflash (reinstall) iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch ». This post we will devote to this topic.

How to Flash Iphone 3gs

So in this article we will describe the processes Recovery and Updates any iOS (iPadOS) device (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch).

Why do I need to upgrade my iPhone or iPad?

The main purpose of restoring an iOS device is to reset it to factory settings with upgrading the software version (iOS firmware). Re-flashing (recovery) is usually performed:

  • if there is a software failure of the iOS device;
  • in order to install the latest version of iOS;
  • in case the user has forgotten the password (code) for the screen lock (not to be confused with Apple ID Activation Lock)
  • to create a “clean system” (for example, when changing the device host or for the purpose of the subsequent jailbreak procedure).

Is it possible to lower (roll back) the version of iOS or iPadOS firmware on iPhone and iPad?

Not. Apple officially does not allow Install iOS versions other than current.

However, there is a so-called “time window” in which in a few weeks after the release of the latest firmware, users will be available to install and previous software version.

Another exception is the ability to roll back to the latest official version of iOS from a beta version of the firmware installed on the device. We talked about how to install test firmware without a developer account here.

It is worth noting that from time to time, hackers still release various software that allows you to lower the version of iOS. However, in most cases, firmware rollback is possible only on older iPhone and iPad.

What is the difference between Update and Recovery?

In the process updates firmware all data (applications, photos, contacts, etc.) on the iPhone or iPad is saved.

At recovery the device will receive “factory settings” (clean system), while ALL user data will be deleted.

Important.

NEVER do not use Update on a device with a jailbreak (Cydia icon on the screen)!

Often this leads to the so-called “eternal apple” or “eternal loop” in recovery mode (the Music (or computer) icon with a cable on the screen).

To flashing an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with jailbreak, always use Recovery on the computer.

Or if it’s not difficult for you, do a lesson about it.

That is, if the device with the Jadebreak was just updated, can it be thrown out?

no, but only subsequent recovery in iTunes will help bring it back to life

Do not tell me how to do this or throw a link? I would be grateful

Thank you kind people! that there would be many of you! Respect to everyone!

Yes, but for this you need to put the device into recovery mode. Point 2 of the instruction. You do not have to download the firmware yourself; when you click Restore iTunes will download it yourself.

I have been using it for a long time, it costs ios 5.1.1 about a year ago it stopped updating, it gives an error 3194 and that’s all, well, it somehow didn’t really bother me, it worked fine, but the last month it often turned off for me just like that , and sometimes when I turn it on it says “activation is required, connect to itunes”, and does not want to be activated through wifi. I connected, activation is repeated, while everything on the device is saved and even to the factory settings it doesn’t reset, it happened a couple of times, and yesterday it turned off again and demanded a connection to aityuns, I connected, it started to repair and error 3194 again. I tried everything , downloaded fresh iOS, and downloaded the old one (and when it’s fresh, supposedly it will restore and update itself, it will recover for a long time and only at the end it will give an error, and if it changes to the old one through shift, the error will crash almost immediately), and in the mode dfu tried, changed the host (as hell the ministers through a text editor saves everything, but I didn’t have that line there that should be deleted) nothing helps. Now the phone is a “brick” and when turned on, only the “connect to itunes” icon appears. Help (((

Help me please! I have an iPhone 5 A1429, Unsuccessfully updated via wifi. There is no backup. The firmware was 6 versions. I don’t remember the version exactly. There is iOS 7.0.4 firmware, when trying to restore it with this firmware it constantly writes error 3194. Something to do using the Internet is simply unrealistic. Since in our area the Internet is the slowest. The average Internet speed barely exceeds 20 kb / s. I have never dealt with iPhone firmware. I did everything both in this manual and in the instructions that can be found on the Internet. Tell me how to flash it.

Help restore the iPhone! There is a problem with the firmware. After an incorrect update, the phone enters the recovery and nothing more can be done. ITunes on the computer costs 12.0.1 and IOS 7.0.4 firmware is. But when I try to flash it, a message constantly flies with an error 3149 to mine. How many have not tried to flash it already, the same thing constantly flies out. I tried the redsn0w program, it did not help. TinyUmbrella does not work on my computer. And I do not know other methods for flashing. Tell me how can I restore the iPhone? I immediately warn, because of the terrain, downloading another firmware via the Internet or performing an update / restore via the Internet is simply unrealistic. iTunes had to wait about two days while downloading. In order not to frighten, I will not say how much I waited until the firmware was downloaded. I downloaded it from the phone and then copied it to the computer. Working software. Checked. We updated the working phone with this firmware before selling it. Will you help? Tell me what to do with it?

Restore only to the latest firmware 7.1.2
