others removed all Apple related software and reinstalled iTunes: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1925

Currently Being ModeratedJun 29, 2010 5:24 PM (in response to Ingo2711)None of those responses helped.
I tried reinstalling iTunes as per the re-installation guide. One time it finished restoring and said "iPhone has been restored, please leave connected blah blah" but then it said that it was still in recovery mode.
I tried turning off my firewall and anti-virus and switching USB ports (don't understand why this would have any effect whatsoever) and that didn't work either.
Have had no phone now for nearly a week, and I'm not impressed at all with Apple's response to what is clearly an issue for a lot of users.iPhone - PC-Win7, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedJun 29, 2010 8:25 PM (in response to Kaiser68)Ok by booting in safe from a thing i found on youtube I have restored the phone, but everything is gone, my contacts, apps, photos, everything.
Anyway, thank you for not helping at all Apple. You can rest assured that I will never in my life buy another one of your products again.iPhone - PC-Win7, iOS 4

Currently Being ModeratedJun 29, 2010 11:39 PM (in response to Kaiser68)Hi there,
I've had EXACTLY the same problem, except I dropped my phone & did a hard reset - that's what killed it (not the new software) - what is this thing you refer to that you found on youtube? I don't care if everything is lost, I just need my phone back! Do you have a link? Just anything that would help me would be awesome.
Thanks in advance
Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2010 2:12 PM (in response to Kaiser68)Hi i had the same error today and I read alot of post saying to uninstall all apple software (itunes, quicktime, ) well I didn't look enough and left out the apple support, unistall EVERYTHING of apple on the computer and try it out. I must have recovered and restored my iphone literally 100 times in the last three days. Any way it worked for me and instead of using my mac that is no longer under warranty i used my dell incase anything went wrong also didn't want to unistall all the backups I had in itunes. good luck.iOS 4
