Currently Being ModeratedMay 3, 2010 11:53 AM (in response to ~ flipd ~)Either you have a bad cable, a bad dock connector, or the phone's memory is so corrupted that the restore fails. First delete the copy of tthe 3.1.3 ipsw file from your computer to force iTunes to download a new copy. Then put the phone in DFU mode, as described here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808.Lenovo T-60, Intel iMac , Dell/Ubuntu 8, iPhone 3GS 3.1.3, Windows XP Pro, Leopard 10.5.4

Currently Being ModeratedMay 7, 2010 3:59 AM (in response to ~ flipd ~)i have the exact same problem. While trying to restore iTunes says "waiting for iPhone" and i can see the blank progress bar on the iPhone and then the screen goes blank and goes to the apple logo again. Itunes says Error (9). I tried this many times, it's always the same thing, endless recovery mode loop.
Why this happened? I saved a picture (20 megapixel) from mail to the camera roll, and when i tried to open it from the camera roll the iPhone froze. I had to reboot it, and then it just kept in an endless loop restarting over and over again with the apple logo.
I tried restoring on 3 different computers, Windows 7, Xp, different iTunes accounts, different cables and usb ports.
The problem must be on the iPhone side, as it reboot while iTunes is trying to restore it. iTunes says it's a problem with communication... yeah, if the iPhone shuts down on its own while restoring, i would say that's bad communication right there.
No solution yet :/Pentium 4, Windows 7
Currently Being ModeratedMay 7, 2010 5:35 AM (in response to naovouporai)- i Booked an Appointment at the - Genius Bar... - Where it was Determined that my - iPhone 3Gs - In Fact had a Hard-Ware Fault -
- the - 3Gs - was Subsequently Swapped for a New Handset With the Device Still Being Covered by It's Warranty -
- It was assumed that All the Previous Problems i Experienced Before Entering the - Recovery Mode Loop... - i.e. - Unsuccessful Backups... - Unsuccessful Application Installations - & Frequent Crashes & Stability Issues Were Due to this Hard-Ware Issue -
- the Hard-Ware Issue was Determined to Be a Problem With the Memory -
- i Recommend Making an Appointment at the - Genius Bar... - though i Understand that this Can Be an Issue in itself as Certainly for me Being Resident in the UK there is a Lack of Apple Stores in Close Proximity & It Requires Something of a Day-Trip & Planning to Make an Appointment & Be Seen -
- It Did However Seem to Resolve my Problem... - as the New Hand-Set Seems to Be Running Well so Far... - though i Have Experienced Some Problems with the Volume of the Device During Calls - though that may be a Fault Other than the - 3Gs - Itself - i.e a Bad Connection/Line -
