    Default Recovering from recovery mode...

    Hello Hackint0sh'ers,

    After failing to get anywhere with the “geniuses” from the “genius bar” at my not so local apple retail store, I'm coming to the one place where people know what their talking about, generally...

    Unfortunately, I have a 100% genuine (i.e. not jail broken) iPhone, on the standard O2 contract/uk network, which was until recently running 2.2.1 of apple's standard firmware.

    I'll confess now that am not a Mac user (Debian SID on black MacBook 2,1) and as a result I've not sync'ed my iPhone with iTunes since the last 2.2.1 update... whenever that was.

    Anyway, after installing a perfectly innocent looking racing game (Volkswagen Golf?) from the iTunes store, the phone froze on the game's loading screen. Therefore, I set about a soft reset (i.e. hold the sleep and home buttons for a few seconds) the phone then came up in recovery mode (with the USB to iTunes image).

    I don't have the iTunes instance that I original registered the phone through nor do I have the installation or even the laptop (a white MacBook 1,1) that I used during my last sync. So when I plugged my phone into a fresh install of iTunes (on Windoze XP/Vista, OSX and OSX86) it get the following error message;

    “iTunes has detected a iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes.”

    and the two options, “Restore and Update” or “Cancel” !

    So my question is can anything be done (on GNU/Linux, BSD, OSX, Windoze, etc.) that can help me recover my data before proceeding with the restore?

    Thank you in advance,
    Leslie

    You might want to give this one a try first:

    1. Connect iPhone and your Windose/Mac, quit iTunes.
    2. Hold Start/Sleep and Home for 10 seconds (I always count 100, 200, 300,...)
    3. Let go of Home button but keep holding Start/Sleep until the Apple logo on the iPhone screen shows up.
    4. Let go of Start/Sleep, the iPhone will boot

    If you are lucky the iPhone will jump back to the springboard. If so I'd recommend syncing with iTunes then doing a restore - something is wrong...

    If this ain't help and you do have access to an Intel Mac, download iRecovery here
    Downloads - chronicdev - Google Code
    copy it to the Macs Desktop and fire up Terminal (Programms > Utilities), then

    cd Desktop
    chmod 755 iRecovery
    ./iRecovery -s

    the programm should find the iPhone in recovery and print a few lines, type

    fsboot

    then and wait. Usually takes 10-20 seconds and the iPhone should boot.

    Let me know if this is working for you before trying other solutions

    Sorry, forgot to mention on using iRecovery the iPhone has to be connected to the Mac, if iTunes starts up just quit it.

    Volkspost,

    Thank you for your suggestions. Unfortunately however, neither of them worked. Do you have any further suggestions?

    Many thanks,
    Leslie

    Hi leslie,
    what happened when you tried iRecovery? Did it find an iPhone in recovery mode, did it show the programs options?
