    I have a big problem and maybe one of you guys could help me out. Yesterday I tried to update to iOS 7.0.4 (from 6.0.2). During the update process an error occured and now the phone is stuck in recovery-mode. Unfortunatelly I also have a broken power-button, so leaving recovery-mode the manual way is not possible (holding home- and power-button...).

    Until now I have tried a couple of software solutions but I always end up with the "iTunes Logo and USB-cable" screen. Here is a list of tools (Mac OSX) I already tried:

    - iReb
    - Redsn0w
    - TinyUmbrella
    - RecBoot

    Thanks in advance!

    best regards,

    Try to find out the error, if possible.

    Also, you may want to delete all of the software you listed. That may cause problems connecting to the Apple Servers.

    Let your phone die!!!! Then hold home button for like 7 seconds and plug it into computer and just hold it until it get into recovery mood. Might have to do it a few times just keep it press after it's plugged in, but phone has to be dead first it's like holding your power button then releasing it while still holding the home button same concept but without power button. It works for me all the time!!
