    I know this is everywhere, but my case is different. I had problems with my lockscreen which never turned off. I went to another forum and asked for tips, they said to Reset All settings (not erase all content). I did that, and guess what, it is stuck in the Apple logo and sometimes with the spinning wheel. Now I CANNOT go into DFU mode because I do not have a backup of anything and if I restore im screwed and all my apps, contact, etc. will go away. I have access to the iPhone system folders (iFunbox, diskaid, etc.) Please help I am stuck with no phone...

    when you have a spinning wheel on your phone, this only means that your phone crashed, and it crashed for good, im sorry to say this, but the only way to fix it, its to restore, hold down the home button, and plug in your USB without letting go of the home button, when you see the iTunes + usb logo on the phone, then you can let go of the home button, then go to iTunes and restore,

    sorry bro, its the only way...

    Since your only other choice seems to be to restore, have you just tried holding the home and power buttons down for about twenty seconds and seeing if your iPhone will do a cold reboot?

    I wonder if you just had the auto-lock disabled through SBSettings. If you have sync'd in iTunes, you should have a backup. If a hard reset fails, put it in DFU mode and restore from backup. If a restore from backup fails, you'll have to restore to factory settings. In that case, you will lose your contacts, SMS, notes and settings. You will not lose your apps, music and videos, though. They should be in your iTunes library on the computer. (assuming you were syncing with iTunes). In the future, be sure to backup your contacts. This can be done in iTunes through an email account. If you jailbreak your phone, you can save the SMS, notes, etc with SSH, iPhoneBrowser, or directly on the phone with iFile.

    Hey, I actually did have that stupid auto-lock thing in my sbsettings, I never understood what it does so I just turned it off and then removed it through cydia. And still, my lockscreen didn't turn off... how do i fix the lockscreen problem itself...

    BTW TO EVERYONE ELSE WHO TRIED TO HELP--- I really appreciate the help, but I know how to put it into dfu mode -.-

    Sorry, I wish there was a magical way for you to fix it without restoring. If a hard reset failed, that's the only way. We're just giving you the facts. Once you get it set back up, let me know if you need details for creating backups with iFile or SSH.

    If you can access all the system folders... then maybe there is a program you can use to connect to your iPhone and retrieve the data and back it up with?

    That is a good point. Always try a hard reset first. Sometimes that's all it needs.
