HUGE help needed, stuck in restore loop
I just picked up an iphone a friend purchased for me in NYC...
i tried updating from 1.0.0 to 1.0.2 firmware..
my first 3 attempts ended with error 1603... and
i was getting the connect to itunes error while
itunes was loaded in restore mode...
in my 5th attempted it continued and moved on
to "restoring iphone software" and its been
going like that for 3.5 hrs... i tried again...
and i got the same result... its stuck in
a restore loop... a never ending restore and
the device boots with "connect to itunes"...
dunno what 2 do... did i brick?
im from asia so returning it to at&t
is not an option... (i updated itunes, switched usbs. pull
put the sim... EVERYTHING)...
plz help me.
