    Hey guys,

    So I've never had an iPhone brick on me before, but when trying to install the IOS10 Update (official release, not the beta), my phone locked up and now it's stuck on the connect to iTunes screen.

    iTunes can read the phone, but says it's in "iPhone Recovery Mode."

    When I click RESTORE or UPDATE, nothing happens and it asks to eject my phone. I see iTunes is also downloading a 2.28GB "Software Update" but it's going SO SLOW and I don't know which software it's downloading.

    Can anyone help?

    When doing mine the phone ejected a few times and prompted again to update/restore and started to download multiple copies.

    Let the download finish, connect the phone and try the Update option, this worked for me but I have seen others report they needed to do a full restore.
