    Default 3G (3.1) stuck in recovery

    I tried upgrading my iphone 3G to 4.0.2 and I got to about 75% on the progress bar below the apple logo, and it hasn't moved since for about 3 days.

    I have tried RecBoot to get it out of recovery

    I have tried restoring and DFU

    it still hangs at 75% no matter what.

    getting really frustrated. something else I can try to fix it ?

    There could be two different causes for this

    firstly, try to put quotes around the path: eg

    Code:
    "%AppData%\Apple Computer\iPhone Updater Logs\"
    also.. this MS link might help you You receive an "Error 1606" error message when you try to install or remove a Microsoft program

    ok I tried quotes and I got an error saying

    "c:\documents and settings\application data\apple computer\iphone updater logs
    refers to a location that is unavailable. it could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on this network."

    You are missing a username

    It should be: "c:\documents and settings\userid\application data\apple computer\iphone updater logs\"

    Whenever you have problems like this. Start by navigating in explorer to the top level - c:\Documents and settings and then manually navigate down to the correct path.

    The %APPDATA% environment variable may be incorrectly defined in your registry.

    i edited out the username when i posted it here. sorry.

    anyways, I went into explorer and navigated from documents and settings to app data, and the only folder inside app data was another folder named "Roaming"

    any idea what happened to the apple computer folder ?

    went to start--> search and looked for apple computer

    PC couldn't find any results

    It's under roaming. But %AppData% should map to that.
    I don't have an XP machine to test with right now -- path on an English standard install XP machine should be:

    Code:
    C:\documents and settings\userid\Application Data\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Updater Logs
    This is a confusing part of the way windows handles user data (mostly important for corporate machines in domains)

    I can't think of any good reason why Apple doesn't use the Local AppData for logs and iPhone Software Updates rather than the roaming AppData.

    sorry for the run around, and thanks for all the help

    in the roaming folder is another folder called Wifi Sync (i downloaded the app)

    inside of Wifi Sync are 2 files

    paired.bin

    pcid. bin

    that's all
