Please read on - a proper bricking, not just a failure to update! My iPhone 4 has been bricked after trying to update it. I got the usual failure to upgrade message due to apples servers being overloaded. This happened a couple of times and on the third attempt, it started the restore but stopped midway through. The iPhone won't boot into anything now...it is stuck in a boot loop. The computer doesn't recognise it, all I get is the following sequence - apple logo, power down 'circle', apple logo, power down 'circle'....forever! Hard reset does nothing! Anybody got any suggestions?
