    I'm trying to do a full restore on my iPhone 4 from recovery mode. It is currently hanging on the progress bar at about 10% on iTunes and the iPhone. Been like this for over an hour. iTunes is still responsive.


    Trying to upgrade from 4.0.1 to 5.0. Wanted a fresh phone so did it via a restore as apposed to an update.

    Hope someone can help!

    #3 Think that's the most recent isn't it? I've tried the process on my girlfriends computer and im getting the 1600 error. It doesn't even get to loading the firmware.

    Error 1600, 1601, 1602: Try the following steps to resolve this error:

    1. Ensure proper USB isolation troubleshooting has been performed, and test with a known-good cable.
    2. Follow the steps listed for Error 1604.
    3. This error may be resolved by disabling, deactivating, or uninstalling third-party security, antivirus, and firewall software. See steps in this article for details on troubleshooting security software.

    Error 1603: If you receive this error and the iOS device is not automatically placed into recovery mode, it may be necessary to do so manually. Refer to iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to restore for steps on placing iPhone into forced recovery mode. Also, remove the IPSW and attempt to restore again. If you do not want to remove the IPSW in the original user, try restoring in a new administrator user.

    Error 1604: This error is often related to USB timing. Try changing USB ports, uninstalling and reinstalling USB ports, and other available USB troubleshooting steps (troubleshooting USB connections, device not recognized properly, computer won't recognize a FireWire or USB device). If you are using a dock, bypass it and connect directly to the white Apple USB dock connector cable. If the issue persists on a known-good computer, the device may need service.

    If the issue is not resolved by USB isolation troubleshooting, and another computer is not available, try these steps to resolve the issue:

    1. Connect the device to iTunes, confirm that the device is in Recovery Mode. If it's not in Recovery Mode, put it into Recovery Mode.
    2. Restore and wait for error 1604.
    3. When prompted, click OK.
    4. Close and reopen iTunes while iPhone remains connected.
    5. iPhone should now be recognized in Recovery Mode again.
    6. Try to restore again.

    If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try restoring using a known-good USB cable, computer, and network connection.

    Thats what iTunes tells me about your problem..

    None of that seemed to work. :/ Getting a tad frustrated with it now. Seems totally stuck! I'd rather get it back to my old firmware than sitting like this! :(

    unplug it from Itunes, do a hard reset and see if it bring back your phone. Press & how power button and home button at the same time for 10 - 15 seconds, then release both and power it on normally.
