    i have 2 older iPhones, 4s and a 3s. but are jail broken but when I went to update them they crashed and are stuck on a screen that tells me to plug into iTunes. I have tried everything and from factory rest to restoring the phone and nothing works. I even to a cell phone repair place and they could figure it out

    I know exactly what's wrong with it: it's old and can't handle the new upgrades created for iphone 5 & 6. Cell phones are created to last for only so long. Then they become obsolete. My advice is to get a new phone. You got a lot of wear and tear out of that one but it's time to get another one.

    I have no major issues with iPhones generally speaking, but jailbroken iPhones don't behave the same way. In my experience updating a phone which was previously jailbroken is not something one would be doing anyway, so it seems you do not know much about jailbroken iphones.

    As such, there is unlikely to be a forum to resolve your challenges. There are forums, and I have fixed many iPhones with the use of Google, but it can be a time and resource intensive situation. Given that you may have already bricked these devices by trying to update them, perhaps you would be better off buying a modern phone and not attempting to jailbreak it! You do not appear to have the right skills, or you wouldn't be asking on BHW how to fix this type of mistake.

    If you are state-side, you could mail the iPhones to me, and I would try to repair them. I cannot make any guarantees as I already said ... there is a chance you already bricked the phones, but there is also a high probability the issues can be resolved.
