    Default [1.1.2 OTB] Stuck in recovery mode

    My iPhone is stuck in Recovery mode (it displays iTunes logo with a cable). I try to restore it to 1.1.2 or 1.1.1, but it keep failing with "unknown error (6)" message. I tryied to restore to 1.0.2 and it failed with "unknown error (1)" message.

    Please help!

    BTW, everybody are talking about putting iPhone in DFU mode to be able to restore it. Is it that mode (with iTunes logo with a cable) or is it something else ? I tried holding Power + Home for 10 seconds (while iPhone is switched off), after 10th second it switches off and shows Apple logo. By that time I release the Power button, but keep pressing the Home button. After about 10 seconds it displays "iTunes logo with a cable" screen, if by that time it is connected to PC, iTunes detects the iPhone in recovery mode. Holding Home button any more doesn't do anything.

    Am I correct with the steps to achieve DFU mode ?

    Also, I have noticed that if I reboot iPhone with iBrickr, it starts booting (displays Apple logo) for some lengthy period of time, but then it reboots and then boots to recovery mode. It seems that something has broken and normal startup just don't work and it boots into Recovery mode.

    Please help!!!

    No offense if you find it any.
    1. You are not entering DFU mode correctly

    You release the power button before the screen lights up.
    NOTE: IF THERE IS ANYTHING ON THE SCREEN IT IS NOT DFU MODE
    some say that it's 10 seconds and some say that it's 8 seconds. just release the power button when you enter a [total] black screen

    2. I'd like to warn (no, I'm not from apple inc) you.

    I have a 1.1.2 OTB myself and I'd like to enlighten you that you will not be able to achieve any SIM card unlock for the time being. i've done a month of research and there's only those hardware unlocks which might get your phone bricked

    So, what is the correct steps to enter DFU ? Can anybody point me out to a good explanation of how to enter DFU ?

    What is the starting state for entering DFU ? Should iPhone be switched on or off ?
    I tried both combinations. From last reply it seems that it should be switched on at the beginning. I tried holding Power and Home buttons and after about 8 seconds the screen went all black and I could hear the USB "disconnect" sound in Windows. Right in that moment I released the Power button and kept pressing Home button for more than 30 seconds but nothing happened.

    I tried starting from switched off state: held power and home, after ~10 seconds the Apple logo appeared, I released the power button and kept pressing Home button; after 10 seconds it finished botting and displayed iTunes logo with a cable screen (and at that moment iTunes detected my iPhone in recovery mode). I kept pressing Home button for ~1minute but nothing happened.

    What am I doing wrong ?

    That's OK. I was thinking about buying TurboSIM or UltraSIM. My coworker has already unlocked his 1.1.2 OTB iPhone with a TurboSIM and it works ok.

    Just need to get it booting to normal mode once again.

    Ok, I was able to put iPhone into DFU mode.

    Now I clicked Restore button and selected 1.0.2 firmware. iTunes started firmware update process, but it seem to hang in "Preparing software for update" (or whatever it is called, I have localized iTunes) phase: I was seeing no update for about 10 minutes. Then I killed iTunes, disconnected iPhone, switched it off, and repeated the firmware update via DFU mode. This time I chose 1.1.1 firmware. But now it seem to hang on phase "Updating firmware" (the progress bar stays on the same position near the beginning). It lasts for another 5 minutes for now.

    I do not know what to do: if it hanged on the firmware update, probably the firmware is in invalid state, so I won't be able to boot it if I abort this process. And I don't know if I will be able to put iPhone into DFU mode after firmware update process abort.

    Please, advise. Is it possible that I will end up with a dead peace of metal if I abort the firmware update process ?
    Is it possible to put iPhone into DFU mode if it has dead firmware ? Or is it that Recovery mode firmware is located somewhere else and not get affected by firmware update process ?

    man you need to learn to go read...

    before you click "restore" you need to hold down the shift key if ur on a pc, or the option key if ur on a mac.

    HOLD the shift key then press restore then select ur 1.1.1. why are u selecting 1.0.2 anyway from a brand new 1.1.2 if thats not in any of the writeups.

    Hey, why do you think I don't know that trick ? How could I select different firmware (1.0.2 or whatever) without knowing that trick with Shift key ?

    I will select whatever firmware version that will work.

    I'm trying to restore to at least 1.1.2, but iTunes keep getting hang on "Restoring iPhone software" phase. When I was activating iPhone when I just bought it I haven't experienced any of these difficulties and iPhone software restoration process went far more quickly. I believe something is wrong.

    Will try to wait for 20 minutes, and if unsuccessful, will try to upgrade to 1.1.1 firmware. I just can't understand why it hangs. I even downgraded iTunes from 7.5 to 7.4.1 (because this is the version I was using when was jailbreaking it first time). But still it hangs.

    well when i let it downgrade/upgrade it takes a while. i've only owned a iphone for 5 days and i've successfully downgrade/activated/jailbroken/upgraded atleast 5 iphones already and its always been the same process and took the same time. i dont know what your doing differently but hopefully you figure it out. start the process and just let it do its thing, don't rush it or stop it in the middle.
