The three methods are quite simple like i said, if you tried the first step and it couldn’t fix the iPhone, then you should follow up with the next method. The three methods are; do a hard reset, restore the device via iTunes, or do a DFU restoration. Note that you have to try these methods accordingly as it’s listed above i.e. hard reset first, DFU restoration last if the other methods don’t work. Here are the steps to unbrick bricked iPhones.


» Hold the Power button and the Home button till the iPhone reboots. » You will see the Apple logo, at which point it will either boot to iOS or prompt you to plug into iTunes. if your device does that, it has entered Recovery Mode. Proceed to connect it to your PC and open iTunes.

» When you connect your iPhone to your PC and launch iTunes.

Confirm . Then wait till the restoration is complete.

Restoring via iTunes doesn’t always yield positive result. Hence the need for this third tip, you need to do a DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) restore. This means you have to completely wipe the phone, and it resets the device to the original factory state. this will utterly delete every input you have made to the device. To do the DFU restore, follow these instructions:

» Plug the iPhone to a PC and launch iTunes.

» Press and hold the Power and Home buttons for 8 seconds. After that, release the power button, but hold on to the Home button until you see a message saying iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

» Now you can release the Home button.
