Wifi sync with itunes

Wifi sync with itunes

Posted October 20, 2014 at 7:06pm by ssombra · 2697 views
Hi, I have a jailbroken iphone 5 (7.0.4) with some hardware issues and it's already out of warranty. The iphone is not recognized by any computer BUT it can be charged when plugged to the wall. At some point I tried to erase all content and settings and it entered into a boot loop (yes, now I know that you shouldn't do that on a jailbroken iphone). After some trial and error I managed to get out of the loop and semi "restore" it using iLex; however, since itunes doesn't recognize the phone, I am not able to fully restore it or to update it to a newer iOS (I tried a lot of possible solutions found on forums without success, it seems to be a problem with the logic board). The phone works good but I would like to, at least, sync content from / to itunes. I know that, in order to wifi sync it you first need to plug it to the computer (which I can't) and change the corresponding setting. Is there a way to change that setting without using itunes? English is not my native language so I hope this is clear, thanks in advance for any advise, best

I tried "reset all settings" and the problem was still there, then I tried "erase all content and settings" and that was when It entered the boot loop

Thanks for taking the time to answer.
Unfortunately nothing happens when I put it in DFU or recovery mode. The computer just doesn't recognize the device, it gives an error message stating something like "USD device not recognized". I tried updating the driver, changing USB cables, changing USB ports and even changing computers and is always the same (my wife's iphone gets recognized immediately in the same computer with same USB cable).
