    I plugged in my iPhone to charge it and all of a sudden I saw that it went on to the 'recovery mode'....I wasn't even charging it through my computer.

    Is there a way to get it out of this mode without restoring it...I can't afford to restore it....I had notes not in the notes application already in iphone, but I've kept my notes in a third-party appliacation called "Moleskine" that I had installed using the Installer....My notes in this application is basically what I can't afford to lose...I don't care if I lose everything else....I believe iTunes restore feature will delete all third-party appliaction even if you restore it to a backup, am I right?

    I've tried resetting it using the home button and the shut/light button on top.
    I've tried ziphone mode change to Normal
    I've been googling for the past 5 hours and I yet to have a solution.

    I have firmware 1.1.4....unlocked....jailbroken...all using ZiPhone 3.0.....

    Please help.....I'm freaking out!!!!!:eek:

    Try this:

    Plug your iPhone into your computer
    Open Ziphone
    In the menu bar there should be a "mode" tab or something similar
    Click the restart in normal mode option

    You should be good-to-go!

    really easy...

    go get iNdePendence, plug in your phone...let iTunes boot up then close it down.

    open up that iNdePendence and let it bring your phone out of recovery mode.

    it will tell you that you dont have the correct firmware before it does anything, but it doesnt will still work.

    once your apple logo appears on your phone and your main screens comes back your good to go.

    hope it works out for you...

    i have to do mines every now and then coz the problem i have is that when my phone runs out of battery, it goes into recovery mode instead of shutting down...

    this method has worked for me everytime...

    Mikey B I had tried the Ziphone solution as I had mentioned it before but it didn't work. I tried it a several times.

    Vincebio - I don't currently own a Mac, I'm saving up to buy one.....Is there such a program like iNdePendence for PC?

    Thanks again for reminding me of why I haven't hacked my phone. I like the security of walking in to the local apple store and walking out with a new phone if there is a problem. I've done it twice in the last year. With the new app store around the corner I just don't see the point of jailbraking but that's just me. Good luck though.
