This video is ONLY for the peoples who gets stuck at the Apple logo. If you can boot your device without any problems, you can use Assistive touch to turn off your device.


This tutorial is for the peoples who have a iDevices with broken power button. If you get stuck at the apple logo. You can fix it!

Sorry, the video is too dark.

———- Requirements ———-
Latest version of iTunes:

———- Instructions ———-
Difficulty: 5/10

1. If you gets stuck at the Apple logo. Let your iDevice drain the battery and then the battery die… i can’t find another way to turn off the device while in Apple logo
2. Recharge your iDevice and quickly hold home button till the iTunes logo shown on the screen. Recharge an iDevice will turn on itself.

If it show the red battery icon, you cannot enter recovery mode. Let it turned off, remove the recharge and let it give small power in the battery itself in 1-3 days. (My iPad 2 also giving the battery small power itself and it stopped at 3%. It’s a little trick)

If your device have enough power to turn on. Simply plug in the recharge cable on your iDevice to turn on and quickly hold home button (before apple logo shown) till the iTunes logo shown on the screen.

3. Connect your iDevice to your computer and the iTunes program will automatically start
4. Restore your device!

Toms Channel says:

Did not work! Have an iPhone 4S, which is disabled and says connect to iTunes, but iTunes says that the iPhone is locked and type in the passcode on the iPhone which it doesn't let me do. The lock button is broken, then I found this video, I tried this method but when I held the home button when it was booting up from dead, it did nothing but boot up normally! Not happy, any solutions?
