Currently Being ModeratedJan 4, 2011 12:19 AM (in response to Jamonico)it should give you the option to restore yr phone from the back in yr pc just read eveything to make sure you make the correct selection i think its (restore your iphone) option,
the other option to to locate yr iphone backup file in yr pc and copy it to another location on yr pc when u have restored yr phone thru itunes and done the backup if you done it correclty all will be good (all files photos ect)but if you made a mistake the locate the copied backup file u made and place it back into the itunes backup file (were u copied it from originally)then you can re sink your iphone and obtain all music, pic ect.
iam in QLD you can call me and i can talk you thru it if you like if you are in OZ that is

... my phone is locked in recovery mode with no other option than to restore via iTunes....
Just restore via iTunes. If your iTunes is the same you using to sync your iPhone all the times, most likely you don't lose anything, as long as it has been backed up, because recovery mode comes after the backup done by iTunes, before the update process.
After restore, iTunes will ask you if you want restore your iPhone from a previous backup, just accept that and select your correct backup.iMac 27" i7 2.8GHz 8GB, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone 3GS (4.2.1) iPod touch (4.2.1)

I also have a problem with the recovery mode which is locked. When my iPhone is restoring, I have a message which says that there is an error (3194). So I can’t use my iphone anymore…
May somebody help me, please ?

3194 is an error who most likely happens when you try to downgrade firmware.
If you attempting to downgrade, this is not supported and no help available, if any other issue instead, try follow this procedure:
