Currently Being ModeratedNov 23, 2010 5:10 AM (in response to ghandler)I had exactly the same problems with both my iPad and iPhone 4! In the case of the iPad I had to restore the device and that was a pain but at least I was able to restore and update it. However, with the iPhone 4 it got into a 'failed to restore' loop that I could not get out of. I followed the advice in this article http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1275 and tried the various measures suggested including creating a new user account on my iMac and trying to restore in the 'clean' copy of iTunes in that new account - but that failed as well! In the end I managed to restore the iPhone by downloading iTunes onto a Medion PC Netbook I have and restoring it on that PC. I was then able to reconnect to the iMac and restore from a previous backup of the device. All is now well but I think Apple should be ashamed that it took a WINDOWS PC to get my Apple iMac out of trouble. As a matter of interest I have been using Macs for over 10 years and have had no trouble with previous Apple software updates until the 3 most recent - OS 10.6.5, iLife 11 and iOS 4.2.1 and all 3 have given endless problems that I should not have had to sort out. It is time to "get a grip" Mr Jobs!

This usually means you have windows and forgot to turn off virus software before updating. I've seen posts like this for every update.

I did the iOS 4.2 update via iTunes when he proposed the update.
Result: my iPhone is bricked !
Then I scheduled an meeting @ the nearest Genius Bar.
Conclusion: there is nothing to do, the iPhone is bricked for ever.
They offered me a replacement for 199€ because the warranty is 76 days over. I asked them for a goodwill gesture if I would buy an iPhone 4. No way they answered.
