    I have a 3gs 4.0.1 I was trying to upgrade to 5.0.1. Something happened and itunes tried to restore back I guess and now it's stuck. No holding the power/home buttons system works. It kind of wont shut off and itunes 10.5.3.3 doesnt even see the phone. This is an non jb phone. It was jb a while back but I un jail broke it to 4.0.1.

    Any ideas how to get out of this? I dont even think I can do a restore and itunes doesnt see the phone. I'm using windows 7.

    Thanks.

    I'm on an iphone 3gs.

    No other way to boot this phone out of dfu/recovery mode than some software?
    I dont even know what mode I'm in except that itunes will not see the phone no matter what magic button sequence I use....so far. Grrrrrr...

    Tinyumbrella doesnt see my device. The exit recovery & fix recovery buttons are grayed out.

    I got it! I tried the 3rd usb port and it worked.
