    connect and then disconnect it from the pc and recharge it a little bit until all you see is the red battery and the apple logo flashing at the screen. and then follow the video instruction.

    Dear Asif,
    Thanks a lot for this article, it saves me some weeks ago, and my iPhone looks to be ok, but…

    last week it gets stucked again at “restore” but this time, it is impossible to shut it off!!

    What can be?
    any theories?
    button is ok, but as I can’t turn it off, I can’t put it in DFU mode, or reboot or nothing.

    I really appreciate all people like you, who knows how to solve this ind of problems and share it with the rest of us, so please if you don’t know about what I’m telling you, well, just bad luck for me, don’t feel compromised to help (more) in any way.

    Any theory, will be appreciated. Thanks a lot, again.

    I purchased a refurbished iPhone 4 from AT&T but it didn’t work out of the box. I found your site and followed your guidance. It took a couple of attempts – I received a series of error messages in iTunes. However, each attempt seemed to bring me closer to full restore. Ultimately, it succeeded. Many thanks!

  22. Billy   •  

    I have tried to put the phone in recovery mode and dfu mode countless times. I can get it turned off and on and I can get it to the connect to iTunes screen. Each time I try to restore it on iTunes nothing comes up. It’s like the computer doesn’t know the phone is even plugged in. I have also tried using the red sn0w program I used to jailbreak the phone in order to restore the phone- it keeps saying that I didn’t put the phone into dfu mode, but I know that I did. I need some help on this one. I have been through countless forums and websites. I have tried SO many different options and nothing has worked. Please help me if you can. I am desperate and am getting ready to just call it quits. Thanks so much

  45. kat   •  

    i had a jailbroken 3g. i used blackra1n to unlock it before when i accidentally updated my iphone. just last week my battery was drained then when i charged it, it’s wasn’t charging and now stuck in apple logo. searched online and i was able to have the screen(connect to itunes logo appeared) recognized itunes when i press home button after connecting it to a usb which is connected to my mac. but i am afraid to restore since there might be versions that will prevent me from jailbreaking it again and they said blackra!n is no longer updated.

    i don’t know the version of my iphone 3g
    i don’t know what software to use to jailbreak it
    will it require the original sim which i don’t have
    and what’s o2?

    help please?!?

    would really appreciate it

  81. Raul   •  

    I jailbreaked my iphone4 and then by accident I clicked on up-date itunes which sent my phone into recovery.

    I used Tiny Umbrella to get out of recovery and used redsnow to jailbreak my phone again. I got into Cydia and had to reboot. My phone then got stuck in reboot and went between recovery mode and reboot. I tried restoring my phone but now that says there’s been an error and it cant be restored. Is there any other way of getting it to work? Even using RecBoot doesnt get it out of recovery mode, it simply goes back to the connect to itunes screen.

    I am right in thinking that Apple wont repair it cos I jailbroke it, right?

  97. Lovely   •  

    I’m having a crisis here. I was updating my iphone 3g and thought it wasn’t going to take long but it took longer than I thought, which was stuck at the same place for about an hour. I had to leave so had to turn off the pc and took off the usb in the middle of updating. Now it is stuck on the apple logo with the loading thingy. It’s been like that for hours and the recovery mode is not working. What do I do? How do I get out of it? I tried using a different usb port but it still doesn’t work. Help!
