I recently updated, or at least tried, to iOS 6.1 on my iPhone 4S. By the end of it updating my computer suddenly shut down and now my phone is stuck in "recovery mode". When I try to restore it, it is stuck in "Waiting for iPhone" for hours on end. Honestly I don't care if I have to restore it back to factory settings, I just want to get back to using my phone. Anyone have a solution?
Try DFU Mode Restore. Open iTunes on computer. Connect iPhone to computer with USB cable. Hold both Home and Power button, after exactly 10 seconds release the Power Button, keep holding the Home button until iTunes recognizes iPhone in Recovery Mode, usually about 20 seconds time. If the iPhone screen is black, blank this is DFU Mode. Click the Restore button of iTunes.
It already recognizes it as in Recovery Mode. My problem is that when I click restore it will say Preparing iPhone for Restore or whatever and then it would say "Waiting for iPhone". At this point it would get stuck and it will not continue in the restore process. This is what I'm trying to fix.
Then try DFU. If this does not work, try restoring on different computer. If still problem, and if there is Warranty or AppleCare Coverage make Genius reservation or set up service and take or send to Apple for resolution.
The following will work for you to recover lost data of iPhone stuck in recovery mode.
Solution 1 : Turn off your device , then turn back on and everything should be fine.
Solution 2 : Plug your device into a PC or a MAC then iTunes should detect your device is in recovery mode and release you from recovery mode.
ITUNES will automatically pick it up and a pop up box will probally say that your IPHONE is in recovery mode would you like to restore?
3. Click the restore tab.
Note - If ITUNES if out of date, this will not work.
Note - Do not do this over WIFI
Note - Do not interrupt the restore
Note - If you did not make a previous back up, your iPhone will restore back to the factory settings.
Solution 3 : RESTORE, your iPod
Solution 4: Press and hold the power button for 5 secs , press and hold the home button and release the power button. Now press the power button and the home button for 10 secs.
Hope iPhone Data Recovery helps!
