    Hi,

    earlier this morning I was using my iPhone when all of a sudden it powered down. When I tried turning it on I was met with the CD/Please Connect to iTunes Screen.

    So, I opened iTunes and hooked my iPhone up to my MacBook.

    Then the message about something "In Recovery Mode" and "Restore iPhone" popped up.

    I have just purchased quite a few apps earlier this week and taken countless photos, however due to having a bug and being ill in bed I haven't booted my MacBook up therefore I haven't synced my iPhone/transferred purchases etc.

    I have been googling "How to exit recovery mode on iPhone 3GS" for hours and I've been trying a few of the instructions mentioned on other threads/posts etc.

    However none of them have helped and I am a complete technospazz and I am now getting to the point of desperation because I cannot use my iPhone and I really do not want to lose any of my photos/new apps etc.

    Can anybody offer any help or suggestions please?

    any advice/help will be gratefully received.

    Thank you.

    Kind Regards

    Charlotte

    Ok, so I have downloaded and installed the program and saved it in Applications however it is advising me that there are 0 shsh files to cache, what does this mean and what do I do next? (Sorry for being so dense).

    Kind Regards
