Method 1. Manually Update the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to computer and wait for some time until the device is recognised.
Step 2. Right-click "Computer", Go to "Device Manager". Then expand category "Universal Serial Bus controllers" and locate "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver".

Step 3. Right-click "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver" and click "Update Driver Software". On the pop-out window, choose "Browse my computer for driver software".

Step 4. Choose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" and click "Next".

Step 5. On "Update Driver Software - Apple Mobile Device USB Driver" box, click "Have disk". However, if this button is not available on this box; click a device category like "Mobile Phone" or "Storage Device" in case if that is what you see.

Step 6. Click "Browse".

Step 7. Navigate to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers". Then double-click the usbaapl file. If you have a 64-bit version of Windows, this file will be called usbaapl64. If you don't see usbaapl64 here or if there isn't a Drivers folder, look in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers".

Step 8. On the "Install Disk" window, click "OK".
Step 9. Click "Next" and after this, Windows will assist you with the driver update.
Now, you are ready to go. Open iTunes to check if it recognizes your iPhone

SOURCE: GPS not working

Try this -

1) Settings > Enable 3G Change to Off.

2) Use the iPhone GPS receiver to locate your position

3) Settings > Enable 3G change to On.

There are two positioning systems in the iPhone 3G, one is the 3G network, and the second is the GPS receiver. The problem occurs when the data from the two systems doesn't match.

How to restore a troublesome iPhone 3G!


If you have an iPhone 3G that is causing you problems or errors when you are trying to restore then hopefully this information can be useful to you.

If you are struggling to get your computer or iTunes to recognize your iPhone then put the device into recovery mode. To put the device into recovery mode, plug the iPhone into your computer, open iTunes, then hold the sleep button and the home button together for ten seconds before releasing the sleep button. Contine to hold the home button until iTunes pops up and tells you that a device has been detected that needs restoring.

Click restore and iTunes will download and restore the latest firmware to your device for you. Once the restore completes you can set up a new phone or restore al settings from a backup of a previous phone.

If after restoring you get an error message and your iPhone displays a plug into computer logo then we must go through some more steps to get your iPhone going.

This section is for users of 32 bit Windows, which is the majority of people. Download the iRecovery and libusb-32 package and install the libusb-32 file. Move the irecovery.exe file to C:irecoveryirecovery.exe

From your start menu go to Run and type cmd. Press enter and you will be presented with a black box with a command prompt. At the command prompt type C:irecoveryirecovery.exe -s and press enter.

Once your iPhone has been found you will have another command prompt. Now type the following commands:

setenv auto-boot true
saveenv
exit

Once again reboot your iPhone, holding sleep button and power button until the Apple logo displays, this time your phone should boot up into the normal iPhone interface.

With a bit of luck you have just restored your iPhone 3G!

My iphone is hanged its shows apple logo only, hw can i solved this problem without loosing my all data,like my videos,contacts,pictures,pls help me out


Try pressing and holding both the POWER & the HOME button at the same time for around 3 to 10 seconds until it turns OFF. Then turn it back on again.

If it still won't go past the Apple logo, use tinyumbrella to Fix Recovery or to Exit out of Recovery. Download tinyumbrella using the links below: for Mac for PC (Windows)

Update tinyumbrella first if it tells you that there's newer version available.

NOTE: Your computer must be able to recognize your iPhone before you can use tinyumbrella to fix it. If your computer could not recognize your iPhone, you first need to put it to DFU mode. To learn more about DFU mode, CLICK HERE.

If those things still don't work, you'll have no other choice but to restore. Again, your computer must be able to recognize your iPhone before you can restore it using iTunes. Put it to DFU mode if your computer won't recognize it.

This picture comes up on the front of my phone of a chord and a pic of the itunes app. I can't get to the main phone to use it


sounds like its stuck in DFU Mode

http://www.iphonealley.com/tips/save-your-iphone-with-recovery-mode


If iTunes doesn’t see your iPhone’s cry for help, you may need to invoke recovery mode. Although it’s an extremely helpful mode, how to get there isn’t very apparent. Read on for the how-to!
As arcane as “recovery mode” sounds, it’s actually very simple:
Disconnect your iPhone and turn it off by holding the “Sleep/Wake” button for about five seconds and then sliding the red slider. If your iPhone is already off, there’s no need to turn it on and then off again. Once it’s off, press and hold the “Home” button and plug your iPhone into a Mac or PC with iTunes installed. Keep holding the “Home” button until you see a dock cable pointing to the iTunes icon. iPhones running older software will display a yellow triangle and text which says “Please Connect to iTunes”. Once you see this image, you can release the Home button.


Open iTunes (if it’s not already open) and you will be told that “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.” Click “OK” and you will be taken to the iPhone pane. Click “Restore” and you’re done, it’s that easy! Depending on the extent of your iPhone’s ills, it may take some time to do a full restore. Once you’re done, you should again have a perfectly working iPhone.
If this doesn’t solve your problem, you may need to restore using DFU (Direct Firmware Upgrade) mode. To enter this mode, plug in your iPhone and turn it off. Hold down the “Home” and “Sleep/Wake” buttons for about twelve seconds. You’ll briefly see the silver Apple logo and then your phone will appear to turn back off. Release the “Sleep/Wake” button but continue to hold the “Home” button until you see a message in iTunes stating that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Choose “Restore” and you should be fixed right up!
If this doesn’t fix your problem, your iPhone may require a visit to the Genius Bar

I replaced the screen on my cracked iPhone 3G. The phone turned on and worked fine, but the home button was unresponsive. So i took the screen/LCD out to check the connections. The phone turned back on and...


put it on DFU mode. then, try to restore it using iTunes.

I believe that you have a problem w/the home button. maybe it's pressed all the time, so the phone cannot boot.

try dismatling the screen again, and check the home button contacts.

if you think the contacts are not ok, try to replace the home button.

if yo thinks there's no problem with the home buttons, try to enter to DFU mode:

1. turn off and connect the iphone to the USB.
2. press and hold power button for 5 sec
3. press and hold power and home button for 10 sec
4. leave the home button pressed until the computer recognize the iphone as a DFU device.
5. restore with iTunes.


Cheers,
Gery

My iphone is stuck on the screen where the apple is displayed


NOTE: You need to be plugged up to your computer for this to work

1. Hold down the POWER and HOME buttons untils your phone reboots.

2. Hold POWER button until the iPhone powers OFF

3. Hold POWER and HOME buttons, iPhone will now power on.

4. When you see the apple2.gif logo, release the POWER button but keep holding the home button.

Also the iPhone screen may go white after doing this until restored, this is normal, it's not broken.

Iphone will not restore


Try restoring in DFU mode, which is different than recovery mode. I happened to stumble across it while trying to restore an iPhone 3G that a user unplugged in the middle of the 3.1 update. It kept showing an error of 1611 or 13 and wouldn't restore in recovery mode. I found this DFU mode option and the restore worked fine. The DFU mode keeps the iPhone OS from loading, so you don't run into as many compatibility problems. Go into DFU mode, then try restoring the phone and see if that works.
http://techierambles.blogspot.com/2009/09/restore-iphone-with-error-13-or-1611-in.html
To enter DFU mode:
1. Connect your iPhone to your computer
2 . Turn iPhone off. You may have to hold the power and home buttons down together to force the phone off
3. Once the phone is off, hold the power and home buttons together for 10 seconds exactly
4. After 10 seconds, release the power button but keep holding home until the computer recognizes that a USB device was plugged in
5. iTunes should detect your iPhone correctly, and also allow you to restore to the factory default settings

Unlock iphone


Yeah, just plug in the iPhone and restore it to factory settings. Pretty straight forward.
If you can't get iTunes to recognize it, then you might have to use recovery mode.  Plug in the iPhone to the computer. Press and hold power button and home button until the iPhone powers off.  Once this occurs, wait 5 seconds exactly!!! Then release the power button but keep holding onto the home button.  iTunes should recognize the phone being in recovery mode. 
From there, click restore and you're done.
