This error is often related to USB timing. Try changing USB ports, using a different dock connector to USB cable, and other available USB troubleshooting steps (troubleshooting USB connections. If you are using a dock, bypass it and connect directly to the white Apple USB dock connector cable. If the issue persists on a known-good computer, the device may need service.
If the issue is not resolved by USB isolation troubleshooting, and another computer is not available, try these steps to resolve the issue:
- Connect the device to iTunes, confirm that the device is in Recovery Mode. If it's not in Recovery Mode,put it into Recovery Mode.
- Restore and wait for the error.
- When prompted, click OK.
- Close and reopen iTunes while the device remains connected.
- The device should now be recognized in Recovery Mode again.
- Try to restore again.
If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try restoring using a known-good USB cable, computer, and network connection.
If you tried all this and it did not work, but it did work on a different computer, then there is something wrong with your computer. Your computer isn't going to magically fix itself in between iOS version updates.
Gee you mean it all doesnt magically get better with sunshine and buttercups?
My pc was wiped completley after this happened the first time in november. It is not the computer.
And the only thing that worked on another computer was restoring it back to factory. Which is not the point of my question. The point of my question is WHY does my phone constantly get stuck and put into recovery mode every time I plug it in to do the update.
