I think it had an error code of 411....So, why did this error?
There is no such error code. No one can tell you why without the correct code.
Was this phone EVER jailbroken?
iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode and that I must restore this phone before it can be used with iTunes....How can I fix my iPhone without doing a restore?
There is no way to get out of recovery mode without restoring.
You mean you actually didn't back up before updating, really?

I said I thought the error code was 411. The message closed as I was reading it. I am positive I saw a 4 and a 1.....so I thought maybe it was a 411. No, it has never been jailbroken. Yes, I did backup before updating, but I've had problems with things not appearing after restoring, which I have done before, I just really don't want to have to do that now. I appreciate your willingness to reply to my question, but I could have done without the sarcasm. It was unnecessary.
Hi Did you manage to fix your problem? I am having the same issue, but I forgot to back up first. It has always previously asked me to backup my phone before installing an update, so I didn't even think of it.
Anyway, now my phone isn't working and its saying I have to restore factory settings. Do you have any tips?
