    Exclamation iPhone 4S stuck in recovery mode. Nothing seems to work

    I have an iPhone 4S stuck in recovery mode. It is running 6.1.1 and was jailbroken via evasi0n. I was not upgrading or installing anything when my phone crashed and went into recovery mode, it was working fine, I had just made a call and was making another when the screen went black and came back with the iPhone cable to iTunes picture. I have SHSH saved via TinyUmbrella. I tried to run the TSS Server and install 6.1.1 back onto the iPhone, it keeps giving me errors, mostly error 11. I tried also to install and upgrade to 6.1.3 just to get my phone working again, however iTunes gives me errors 1603 and 1604. Not sure what else to try, but hoping that someone can help me out and get it working again even if it is on 6.1.3 and unjailbreakable.

    I am using a Macbook Air on 10.8.3 with iTunes 11.0.2, everything is up to date. If necessary, I do have a windows 7 laptop available to use. (I have tried restoring on another MBP which was fully up to date and received the same errors, as well as trying on the Windows 7 PC I have which also resulted in errors and no restoration) I have also tried to kick it out of recovery with TinyUmbrella with no luck, keeps going back to the recovery screen when rebooting the phone.

    Where did you get the SHSH? If you had TinyUmbrella download it automatically from Cydia, then you may need to find another way to get it. I read that the Cydia ones are corrupt.

    I'm not exactly sure how to tell in that situation, yes i did use tiny umbrella to save them to my laptop. Is there another way to do it? however I'm even satisfied with getting back to 6.1.3. Just want it to work, and when restoring from any computer, using different wires as well, I've gotten the 1603 and 1604 errors persistently.

    Is there anyway that anyone can think of that I could take it to apple and they would not be able to tell that I have jailbroken my phone? I was considering dunking it in water and a friend suggested somehow mutilating the 30-Pin port on the bottom so that they would not be able to connect it and could not tell. I do have AppleCare+ so if i could figure out a way for them not to notice that it is jailbroken by way of messing my phone up, I would be willing to do that and just get a new one for $50 even if it means no further jailbreaking.

    If the phone isn't booting right now, they can't tell it's jailbroken. Dunking in water will void your warranty (it will set off the moisture detectors). Don't mutilate the port on the bottom -- any damage YOU do to the phone willfully will be figured out and will void your warranty.

    If the phone doesn't completely boot to the OS, there is little to no way they can tell that the phone is jailbroken (unless you changed boot logos, in which case we always recommend not doing that for just this kind of situation).

    Take it in as is and let them try and restore. If it fails there and you're under warranty, they should swap the phone out.

    I wasn't aware that if it did not boot they could not tell. I will give that a shot. and I know it would void a warranty if I dunk it in water, but I have applecare+ which allows you to do accidental damage to your phone and pay $50 to get it replaced.

    FIXED!!!! For me anyway, and I hope for you!

    So I tried to update to ios 7 and after downloading the software iTunes tried to update my iPad 3. I received the error 3004 and iPhone stuck in recovery mode the "Connect to iTunes" screen and could not get out of it. Completely annoyed!

    But then I remembered something from when I used to fiddle with iPhones. I opened a program I had called iOS data recovery, which can be used to force boot out of recovery mode (the "connect to iTunes" screen).

    My ipad was still connected to iTunes and in recovery mode. I opened iOS data recovery, selected my iPad (which was just shown by the serial number), then clicked "Exit Recovery" and BAM!!! It immediately kicked my out of the recovery screen and started my iPad back up to my home screen.

    Now, my iPad was still on 6.1.3 since the update to ios 7 had failed. But I didn't care, my iPad was fully functional again just like I left it before.
