Yup me too. Can't just restore back to OS 4.x, only option is to restore to 5...which fails repeatedly.

Just give it a bit, and it'll be fine. Whenever Apple rolls out new software and millions of people download it at one time, this always happens. No big deal.

Ditto. Unacceptable for a production device with a production OS.

Keep trying, or wait a bit -- appears to be (as usual) a network traffic issue:

Does this really happen everytime? If so, you think they'd figure out some way to stagger it...

I got the same thing, and my phone got put into recovery mode. I just unplugged it and replugged it, it asked me to restore so that's what I did. It's currently restoring my backup now onto iOS 5.

You would think a company of their stature would prepare for sh** like this.

I've been getting a few of all these various errors... Still no iOS5!

Seems Apple's servers are getting killed these last few hours, probably as everyone is getting home and running the updates.

would the 3002 error be in any relation to the 3004 and the 3200 errors that people are getting? I have been getting the 3002 Error with my iPad.

I got 3004 error and got stuck in recovery mode which made me go back to factory settings. It appears to have lost the backups I made today and is in this cycle of failing the restore and telling me that I am stuck in recovery mode.

Fun times.

Finally! Just keep plugging it in and out and keep restoring.

Guess I finally snatched a spot on Apple's servers to verify the update!

In the restore process now.

For me, I hit the restore process, get a spot on apple's servers, it goes through the restore, and at the very end it fails and gives me error 3004 :|

it probably stopped with the phone off or crashed. I had to hold down home and power one time.

Possible solution

I originally got a 3014 error, so I switched networks, then I got error 3004. I found the following article:

http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3694#error3004

There are several solutions for 3xxx errors, but the one that ended up helping was listed as:

Quote:
Error 3004: If the steps listed in Error 3000-3999 do not resolve the issue, and you are using a Mac, you may be able to resolve an error 3004 by quitting iTunes and using the following command at the command line: dscacheutil -flushcache
This worked for me, and got my phone out of recovery mode. Hopefully it wasn't just a fluke.
