    I was updating my iphone 3G application and trying to sync new apps (deleting/adding apps). And my phone got completely froze. It only shows apple logo and never enters main screen. So I tried to restore the phone by pressing sleep and home buttons. Itune showed I have to restore the iphone so I clicked on restored. But it shows i can not restore due to unknown error 6. What should i Do!!!

    just take it to apple store? sux.. :(

    DFU Mode

    Plug it into your USB cable and then power down.

    Once it is turned off-press and hold power button and home button at the same time for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, release the power button but hold the home button for another 10 seconds.

    The phone will then go into restore mode and itunes will ask you to restore.

    Hopefully you have a current back up :eek:

    Also-make sure and HOLD THE 2 BUTTONS FOR A FULL 10 SECONDS or it won't work. After you release the power button, you can just hold the home button until DFU starts.
