    I kept getting error (1004) after upgrading to OS 4.0.1 when I was attempting to restore from backup. Nothing I could do to get my phone out of recovery mode until...

    I've finally found a solution to get your iPhone 4 "unbricked".

    Just download the appropriate version through links posted on the left side of webpage.

    Run "Umbrella-4.01.01.exe" -- Kick Device Out Of Recovery

    You'll already have OS 4.0.1 on your phone. In iTunes, restore from backup.


    For those that have been having a similar issue...

    I think it's completely absurd that I have to resort to using third-party programs to get my phone working properly again.

    Many users have called Apple support in attempt to resolve their problems and have been told to go see Genius Bar at Apple stores. The Genius reps have been unable to fix the problem and are handing out new replacements. What a sad fiasco.
