    I have been trying to upgrade to iOS 5 for an hour - I keep getting an error (3014). My iphone 4 is now stuck in restore mode. I am unable to move past the error while trying to restore. What is the error and what should I do? Thanks!

    Nope. I assume you mean my phone is jailbroken? It isn't, and I dont have cydia.

    Had the same problem. I took me 27 times trying to restore it before it got through to Apple's servers. It then restored then restored from my backup. So keep trying it will get through eventually.

    Same here. Now I am stuck in recovery mode and can't restore cause it says it cannot connect to the apple servers or it gives the 3014 error.

    Same problem for me. It took me three tries, on the third attempt I switched to an iPhone usb cable (as opposed to one from an old iPod, that I had been using). I'm not sure if that was the trick, but just so you know.

    Problem seems to have cleared up?

    After about 25 attempts my iPhone 4 finally made it past this error and seems to be updating. If your iPhone is stuck in DFU mode like mine was, you might want to keep trying.
