    Ok guys....this is the second time now that this has happened. I'm currently running 4.3.3 on my iPhone 4 and I've jailbroken using redsn0w. My iOS has gotten a little shaky the past few days and I decided to restore with the impending release of iOS5 tomorrow. Well, when I go to restore my iPhone hangs up as well as iTunes and leaves my phone unusable. If I remove my phone it's stuck in the "connect to iTunes" screen. Any idea what I need to do? I took it to the apple store the last time this happened and they restored it NO PROBLEM. I'm confused.

    At this piont you have 2 options. You can either use tinyumbrella to kick your iphone out of recovery, which night work, or you can restore with a different computer.

    If you edited your hosts file to block itunes from communicating with Apple's servers before, it might be the cause.
