I need some help

Soo i wanted to jailbreak my iphone. i downloaded the iso and wanted to try etcher. it said it was completed but with an error. and then it split my usb into 3 VERY small parts. can anyone help me?

Hi, the partitions you see are those of the image you just flashed. If the error you saw at the end was a verification failure, it means that the USB you flashed could have some bad sectors and/or the data read back after writing was not the same. In that case, I would advise changing target/reader/port/cable (one of them can cause this issue) and then re-trying. If you’re on Windows, that could also cause some false-positives due to Windows creating some sub-folders when switching from flashing to verifying.

i dont really want it again. i just want to save my usb and delete the other partitions. everytime i plug it in it spams me with frormat disc boxes . i cant format them, becase it says its protected by something. and in disk management i cant do anything either

Hi,
Can you clarify what issue you are facing while trying to use the disk management?
Let me point you to this highly detailed step-by-step comment about how to bring external storage media back to a single windows readable format:

Alternatively let me also point you to our recent blogpost about “recovering” USB Drives that ended up in such state after flashing an iso:

Kind regards,

So i have those 3 partitions. i found the unalocated space and made a new partition. but when i try todo anything with them, it just says ‘‘help’’. and thats it. im gonna link a video of it.

Hey @gamegammerlv1.
Linking a video will really help us to troubleshoot.

i want my usb back. pleaseee

Hi Francis, from the video linked, I see you are trying to format within the single partition dialog, which is not what we suggest doing in our blogpost - did you try the steps described in https://www.balena.io/blog/did-etcher-break-my-usb-sd-card/? what you see in the video is just Windows not supporting the partitions file-system. A clean format from disk manager as described in our blogpost will get you back with the single FAT32 partition you want back.

@georgiats omg it actually worked :DDD im such a dummy tbh lol
tysm for linking me again to that page :smiley:
