iPhone 3G Stuck in Recovery Mode After Trying to Update to 3.1.3

I have read through the similar issues posted on here and there have been no definitive answers.
My dad hadnt updated his iPhone 3G to 3.1.3 yet, so we connected it today and chose to update. It downloaded the update, went through the install on the phone, then went into recovery mode and iTunes says it detected phone in recovery mode you must restore. I tried to restore and it just does the same.
I have uninstalled/reinstalled itunes, deleted and re-downloaded 3.1.3.
My dads computer is Vista 32 that we are doing this on.
Any help would be appreciated.

Iphone 3g S 32G Stuck in recovery mode after 3.0.1 update HELP

So, I thought it would not be so harmful to update my iPhone that i purchased just last month to the new firmware and all was going fine until it was restarting the iPhone. After installing the new firmware and the **** thing got locked in recovery mode. Now heres the kicker, iTunes doesnt show any information on the iPhone other than its in recovery mode and needs to be restored. I have tried restoring it as frustrated as i was that i would probably loose memorable photos BUT the iPhone will unmount its self in the middle of downloading the update and it still is trying to restore using the 3.0.1 firmware. Even after the sixth time downloading the firmware iTunes will not restore the phone. And now my computer is just not recognizing the phone. I am ****** off as it is, and cant find anyone with this problem. Help please!
Running: Windows Vista 64-bit with iTunes: (Supposedly for Vista 64bit)
Note: Everything was fine until this update...Im calling Apple at 6am...this is ridiculous.

HT1808 My iPhone 4 started to update but got stuck in recovery mode I've tried everything anyone on the website has told me to do but nothing has worked Is there anything I can do I need my phone

My iPhone 4 started to update but got stuck in recovery mode. Ive tried everything anyone on the website has told me to do, but nothing has worked. When you go to turn it on, it shows the Apple symbol,  then it goes to the connect to iTunes screen. When I do that, it just says error with the code 9006. Ive followed what the Apple site has said to do for it, but the phone is still is the same  state. Is there anything I can do? I need my phone back as soon as possible.

3G stuck in recovery mode

During the firmware update to version 3.1 yesterday on my iPhone 3G, the update crashed, and ended up in recovery mode. Ive tried Restore and Update multiple times, with no success. Ive followed the suggestions of the support document, including removing the old ipsw files, after which iTunes downloads the latest version of the software once again, but still encounters an unknown error. Ive also completely uninstalled iTunes (along with the mobile support files per the support documents suggestions), reinstalled iTunes, and have encountered the same problem. Ive gotten 3 error codes during this process consistently, and they are 1611, 2006, and 2009. Any suggestions as to how to proceed? Id rather, if possible, fix this from home rather than taking a 2 hour trek to an Apple store. Does anyone have specific information as to what these individual error codes mean? Thanks in advance for your help.

Stuck in Recovery Mode



I downloaded iOS7 via a Wi-Fi network earlier today, and Ive been waiting to install it until recently. However, I was having a couple errors when I tried installing it, so I turned it off and back on again, and it started installing just fine.


However, after a while, the iPhone 4 went into recovery mode (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808) and I attempted to restore it on iTunes 11.1. The problem is that when the iPhone Software Update file finishes downloading, iTunes gives me the notification that my iPhone is in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes. all over again.


Ive repeated this process three times now. If anyone could give any assistance itd be most helpful.

Iphone stuck in recovery mode

*Iphone 4


*stuck in revovery mode


*Tried to restore multiple times through iTunes to no avail.


*did not do anything to provoke recovery mode, I wasnt updating my phone or even using it, it was just one my bedside table I woke up it looked as it had died when I plugged it into my charger it came up with the connect to itunes screen and wouldnt let me do anything else. I find it worrying that it just spontaneously decided to go into recovery mode it has never done this before and is a relatively new refurbished product.


*Im skeptical of TinyUmbrella and such as they always seems to destroy my computer but any legitimate help would be appreciated


Thank You

iPhone 3g Stuck in Recovery Mode

Hopefully someone can help! I tried to upgrade my iPhone 3g to the latest software yesterday, although the phone is now stuck in recovery mode.
When I try to connect my phone to my PC, my PC will play the new USB jingle and then straight after the disconnected USB jingle. This happens when iTunes is running. If I close iTunes and connect the phone again, it will sometimes not disconnect straight away and comes up as a new USB as ‘Apple Mobile Device (Recovery)’ - although not always.
I have now tried this on four computers – three Vista and one XP. One Vista computer didn’t recognise it at all, although the other play the new USB jingle and then straight after the disconnect USB jingle.
I have tried to delete all Apple programs (e.g. iTunes and Quicktime) and reinstalling, but I have had no luck.
I can’t restore as my phone disconnects when iTunes is running... so I’d be grateful if anyone has any ideas!

iPhone 3G stuck in recovery mode - tried EVERYTHING

I have a 3g iPhone (no idea of firmware version, maybe 2.2) but it just went into recovery mode and iTunes WILL recognize it and it tells me to restore it but once it begins the restore it will hang at 99% completion and nothing happens after that. When I unplug it from my computer it just goes back to the connect to itunes image.
I have tried this 10+ times with older .ipsw files and still no results. I have also tried using ziphone to try and put it into DFU mode without itunes and I still have no success

iPod Touch stuck in recovery mode

I was trying to update my cousins iPod Touch, so I clicked restore since I was on a different computer. First, for a while, it just said Preparing iPod for restore..., and then it said that there was an error. Now my cousins iPod only shows the connect to iTunes screen. If I plug it in again, it says that I have to restore it. If I do, it will only do the same thing. I think the problem was that I was updating to iOS 4 from os 2. So, what can I do?

iPhone Stuck in Eternal Recovery Mode Help

Hello, I have an iPhone 4 16GB CDMA (verizon) Black. I had it Jailbroken on iOS 4.2.8... When I tried to restore, I successfuly got it into DFU mode and it started the restore to iOS 6 (trying to get unjailbroken). Then I got error 21. I tried to restore again and got error 1600. A few more 1600s and I ended up getting error 1604.


The point being, when I try to get it back into DFU, it turns off and comes back on in about 8 seconds to the Recovery Screen. Every time I try to recover, I get an error. If I can get it into DFU, I can bypass iTunes and use a Jailbreak software to just boot it up, Cydia free.


I know this is not the place to ask Jailbreak questions, but why am I stuck in this Eternal Recovery Mode? If anyone has a solution, please let me know.


ALSO: I have indeed DFUd many times before and know how to do it. My main problem now is the eternal recovery screen, and I need to know hoe to escape it.... Thanks

Updated to 7.0.4 and Now iPhone Stuck in Recovery Mode

I have an iPhone 4 (GSM) that I never synced or updated.  No backup anywhere.  Never connected to iTunes, just plugged it in the wall to charge it, and never lost it.  Im generally a careful person. 


I had been running one of the iOS 6 versions, not sure which now since my phone wont let me in.  Yesterday I decided to update since I was having trouble viewing something in an app and figured a more recent OS may help. 


I downloaded and installed the iOS 7.0.4 update.  From what I could tell, the update was working.  There was an Apple on my screen with a status bar underneath.  It seemed to be taking a long time, but I just let it do its thing.  This was around 8 p.m. EST last night.


Right now and since then, the phone is stuck on a screen that says Connect to iTunes with a USB cord icon and the iTunes logo.  When I connect it to iTunes on my PC, it says that my phone is in recovery mode and must be restored. 


I dont want to restore my phone since I never did any data backup.  I am most concerned about losing photos and videos, but also contacts and everything else.  Obviously, I wouldve if I anticipated even a slight possibility of the update failing.  However, there was no disclaimer on the update, and I sincerely did not expect an issue. 


I spoke with Apple iPhone Tech Support this morning.  They were very friendly and tried to be helpful, but basically said that since Ive never synced my device to iTunes or iCloud, I have no other option but to restore the device and lose the data.  The representative did say that I am welcome to try third-party data recovery services, but Apple is unable to to recommend or endorse any such services. 


I have done a lot of research about this in these past 18 or so hours, but it is very hard to tell if any of these sites offering data recovery are really worth trying.  They look like scams, viruses, malware, etc.  Like those fun ads you see - 38-Year-Old Mom Finds This One Weird Trick Insurance Companies Dont Want You To Know - you get the idea. 


If there are legitimate options for getting the phone out of recovery mode and/or legitimate third-party data recovery services then please share them with me and I will research them and give them a try. 


However, if this is spilled milk which I must stop crying over, then please tell me and I will suck it up, restore the device, and move on with my life.


Thank you for your time and insight.
