    Well I jailbroke my phone with the pwnage tool to 4.1 on my itunes side of the computer (mac). Then my wife logged into her side of the computer and she updated to 4.2 then her standard non jailbroken iphone went into recovery mode. I saw that she updated to 4.2 with her phone tethered via usb but when I checked on her software itunes said 4.1 is the most current version. I can not get her phone out of recovery mode. I am very new to JBing and fear that I may have screwed up her phone. Please help or advise.:confused:

    You most likely haven't screwed up her phone =) Try and download TU from http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/ Open the app, plugin your wifes iPhone and click the 'Exit Recovery' button.

    there is a known problem about this...

    here's what i did and it worked for me

    Same problem but solved doing this :

    On Mac:
    * Open Finder
    * Hold down COMMAND + SHIFT keys and press 'G'
    * Enter "/private/etc/" in the field and press "Go"
    * Find "hosts" file in the directory
    * Drag the file to your desktop
    * Open it in text editor
    * Remove the line that has gs.apple.com entirely or put a # at the beginning of it to comment it out
    * Save the file
    * Drag it back to the /private/etc/ folder.
    * You'd need to enter your username and password to authenticate the move


    got it out of this thread

    Thank you!

    That worked. I am now going into recovery mode after dealing with that!
    You are a life saver!
