Hi All,

I have an iPhone 3GS with iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreaked. I sync it with my Mac with Snow Leopard and everything seemed to work fine until a couple of days ago. In the same day I updated iTunes and connected to Cydia and received four changes (among them Ultrasn0w). Now every time I connect my iPhone to my computer iPhoto detects the cell phone but its unable to render the images or copy them and iTunes doesn't recognize the iphone is there.

I have looked it up but I don't see this mistake happening to anybody else. I tried entering in restore mode but was unable to restore from a previous backup.

Any ideas on what should I do?

    I reinstalled itunes and still the same behavior. I don' really think it is a iTunes problem because iPhoto also can't read my iPhone. I tried with an iPod and it did sync correcly.

    Open itunes and do not plug in iphone.

    Try hold down the power and home botton until it goes completely back and will not respond.
    Next hold down home button and plug in until itunes detect in recovery mode. Itunes should see it. if not try another cable if possible. It should be in forced recovery mode
