iPhone 4 entering different modes

January 24, 2013 at 5:47 PMalex

If your iPhone stuck, there are two options to enter into special modes:

1. Power off iPhone when it's locked or stuck in some mode. Press Home button and Power at the same time, in a few secs, iPhone will shutdown and you can restart it.

2. iTunes cannot connect to iPhone (E800003 error and others): Turn off your phone. Once your phone is turned off, press and hold the home button, and while you continue to keep the home button pressed, plug in your iPhone cable to your PC. If you continue to keep the button pressed, once you plug in the cable, iTunes will power on your device and make it ready to restore.
