    Default [Restore] but circle goes on and on

    I've got the folowing problem:
    When I put my iphone on, the Iphone displays the itunes logo and cable.
    When I connect the iphone with the computer and I try to restore in itunes, there is a circle that goes on and on.
    itunes displays: "waiting for iphone", but after an hour or 2 nothing changed. The circle still going on.

    I've allready tried to put him in dfu mode and tried to change the firmware on that way, but same problem.

    anyone an idea how I can put the phone back into normal mode so that I can unlock the phone?

    thx

    Try the following:

    I. Use Restore Mode instead of DFU.

    If that doesn't work:

    I. Restart computer and try again

    If that doesn't work:

    I. Use DFU and restart computer

    If after all that hassle still nothing:

    >>> Try in a friend's or family member's computer <<<

    ** NOTE: Try using different USB ports each time you restart. Sometimes its something with the computer, not the phone.

    Have you checked the log files? On a Mac you can open "Terminal" from the utilities folder and type

    cd ~/Library/Logs/iPhone\ Updater\ Logs

    Press return, and this will put you in the iPhone Updater Log files folder. From the command prompt type:

    ls

    you will see a bunch of files called "iPhoneUpdater X.log" where X is a number (i.e. 1,2,3...). Pick the highest number and type:

    tail -f iPhoneUpdater\ X.log

    This will actively read the last 10 lines of that file. If any changes are made it will read in the next line. To get out of that just press ctrl-c. What do you see in that file? If you see a progress of "-1" that means it is either preparing a process or doing a process that does not provide status updates.

    I've tried it on different pc's, always the same problem.
    tried in dfu, recovery, nothing changed.

    @fr0: those log files, are they on the pc? or on the iphone? because on the iphone I can't check anything.

    They are on your computer. As far as the location on a PC, I am afraid I have no idea. Perhaps some PC users can shed some light?
