What is a "bricked" iphone? What are the symptoms or tells that it is? Is my phone bricked since it's only showing the connect to itunes? I have a unlocked/ jailbroken v1.1.2 iphone and decided to update to v1.1.4. When I did, it just shows the connect to itunes image. Do I have to have the sim card inside when I update or restore or when I use Ziphone? My phone is brand new and I haven't even used it to make a single call that's why. Thank you for all your help!
