    OK. I'm gonna' give you iDevice experts a full story on what happened.

    Attempt to restore my iPhone, everything was successful until I remembered I need to backup my contacts, so I panically disconnected my iPhone during the 'Waiting for iPhone' process in iTunes.

    Stuck in recovery mode. Tried TinyUmbrella, Recboot, and quite a number of software. All the same result: iPhone booted, with the apple logo, then black screen for a while, then rebooted into recovery mode again.

    Even iReb couldn't help. I need serious help from you guys! Please!

    I need some help on viewing my address book or at least a possible method of kicking it out of recovery mode. Help please? :)

    I did once have this with mine and put it into DFU mode and restored then it worked ok.
