    Unhappy Stuck in Recovery Mode - Update Error (11)

    Hi,

    I have a 3GS Factory Unlocked running on iOS 4.1.

    I went for 5.1 update for the device but it stopped with the following error message:

    The iPhone could not be updated. An unknown error occured (11).
    On clicking more information tab in the error message was directed to the following page:

    iOS: Resolving update and restore alert messages

    I had updated my iTunes to 10.6 prior to connecting the device. Now getting the following message on connecting to iTunes;

    iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes.
    Pls assist.

    Got out of DFU Mode & the device rebooted to normal.

    On again updating the device got the same error message.

    Tried doing an update [shift+update] & restore [shift+restore] as I have ipsw file [iPhone2,1_5.1_9B176_Restore] already downloaded on my PC; but still getting the same error again & again.

    Pls assist.

    Can you read the link in my sig (restore problems) and then use the instructions there to post a copy of your restore log to a pastebin site? Then we'll be able to help.

    Great ... will take care in future. Thanks for your reply.

    As of now resolved the issue by getting the device in DFU Mode & hitting restore.

    But still would like to know the cause of the error as got the same while updating/ restoring with two of my notebooks:

    Here's the pastebin link of the log & details for your reference:
    Code:
    http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=td8jGc8e
    iTunes version: 10.6.0.40
    iPhone OS version: 4.1
    Platform: Windows x86
    OS Version: Windows 7 Professional SP1

    Check your hosts file and make sure you do not have any lines pointing to gs.apple.com in them. If you have them from older jailbreaks, get rid of them -- they will cause restores of iOS 5.x to fail. Since you're on Windows, this should be c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    I'm fairly certain that's your issue. Report back and let me know.

    I too was able to guess the same as the issue.
    But even after commenting the line with gs.apple.com with a '#', I was getting the same error.
    On checking, I had two hosts files; (A) with type as 'File' & (B) with type as 'Umbrella File' (I guess tinyumbrella).

    Now, on the system hosts file i.e, (A) with type as 'File' in the last two lines, I have:
    #74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    #127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com

    on the other hosts file i.e, (B) with type as 'Umbrella File' in the last two lines, I have:
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    #127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com

    1) Do I need to comment out the gs.apple.com line in (B) hosts file as well?

    2) I have never JBroken my devices, so are these coz of using TU for saving SHSH?

    1) Yes, don't just comment it out, remove it entirely from any hosts file that your computer may be parsing.
    2) Yes, TinyUmbrella will add this to your hosts file if 'Set hosts to Cydia on exit' is checked.

    Ok, that could be one of the reasons for getting the error repeatedly. I did not remove the entire line.

    1) Should I delete the line in the hosts file created by TU as well?

    2) I have been saving the SHSH with unchecking "Set Hosts file to Cydia" and "Request SHSH from Cydia". Is that okay?

    3) What's your advice for iOS 5.1 update on iPhone 4S Factory Unlocked on iOS 5.0.1 (9A405)? I do not intend JB'ing the device.
    a. What should be the preferred/ advised mode of update OTA or Wired?
    b. Restore/ Update?

    1) You should.
    2) Yep, should be fine.
    3) If you're factory unlocked, just clean your hosts file and complete the upgrade through iTunes directly. There's no reason to do anything more complicated. Wired is recommended as it forces the backup beforehand, and I always recommend backing up. Restore wipes the phone and restores iOS, then re-syncs the data. Update keeps most user data and installs the new version of iOS. This (update) should be fine for you, however, if you have any problems after the update, then do an actual restore and re-sync. That will fix most anything.
