Currently Being ModeratedAug 12, 2010 3:51 AM (in response to mooploops03)I had the same issue. After updating to the new OS4, my iphone failed on a restore. It was stuck in recovery mode. You have to hold down the home key for 7-10 secs, connect to PC(if that's what you are using) and plug into iTunes. Keep holding the button down until iTunes recognizes the phone. You will be given an option to restore to old or update and restore as a new phone. I did the update and restore as my old backup file was corrupted somehow. Unfortunately, I lost everything since my last sync. Still trying to figure out how to extract contact and pic data from an old backup i had saved on a thumbdrive. Good luck!HP DV 6000, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedAug 12, 2010 7:30 PM (in response to savesomeup)i have a mac. i've tried switching users and restoring it that way. i've tried holding both buttons down and putting it in dfu mode. i've tried holding both buttons down, letting go of the power/sleep button and holding down home. itunes will recognize it and says it needs to be restored, but restoring it just puts it back in recovery mode (with the "slide for emergency" and lock at the top). i don't have an at&t account, so i don't have a sim for it, except for my t-mobile sim. i've tried it with and without the sim. how do i get it back to os 3??? i don't want to pay $29 to speak with an apple tech.
Currently Being ModeratedAug 12, 2010 7:33 PM (in response to mooploops03)it also doesn't give me the option to restore to the previous os. it only gives me the one to restore it, and then it says that there's an update available to os 4. it doesn't give me the option to restore without the update.
