iPhone 3G (8GB) Stuck In Recovery Mode After 2.2.1-3.0 Update
I have an iPhone 3G that I'm trying to fix for a friend.
While updating to 3.0, his battery died and now the phone is stuck in recovery mode.
Restoring gives me error 28.
Alternate USB ports
New user account
Leopard 10.5.6, 10.5.7, and Vista Ultimate
DMZ mode for the router
Standard restore and update
Latest version of iTunes
Restarting the computer
iTunes recognizes the phone in both recovery mode and DFU mode, but gives me error 28 regardless.
I have searched (endlessly) and tried everything I possibly could.
This phone was apparently unlocked and jailbroken prior to the error. (2.2.1)
No other information is available.
Any possible fix?
Don't worry about that. iPhone stuck in recovery mode always happens when you update the iOS on your iPhone. There are two ways to solve it.
First is to put your iPhone in DFU mode.
1. Turn off iPhone
2. Hold down the power and home button.
3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that itís in restore mode.
Second is to fix with a iPhone Data Recovery tool.
1. Fix the Problem of iPhone Stuck in Recovery Mode
2. Recover Data from your iPhone Directly
3. Recover Lost Data from iTunes Backup
