    So yesterday I was trying to get the neutraface font working by SSHing directly into the phone... apparently I messed something up because the phone stopped working. I tried to restore back to 4.0.1 using TinyUmbrella but the restore would hang up at a little over 50%, I even let it sit for over an hour. I then tried to just update and restore to 4.0.2 just to get my phone working.. and it does the same thing, stalls at a little over 50%. I made a genius bar appointment for today, would that be the best idea? Anyone know why it's doing this? Also, will they be able to tell if I had it jailbroken, I wouldn' think they would as all it shows is the connect to iTunes screen but...
    Thanks for any help.

    Just to double check, when you said "restore" did you mean a DFU restore?

    make sure you try DFU.

    Do you have your hosts file set to point to Saurik's server? I found this prevented me from doing a restore. either remove his ip addresse or do the restore from another machine.
    At least this is what happened to me.

    Yeah that was an issue before, I went in and deleted it so I don't think that's the issue this time

    And maturola.. I actually didn't try DFU restore. I'll try that when I get home thanks

    That should solve it for you, there may be some service lingering around stopping you from restoring. DFU wil take care of that.

    Ok I tried putting in DFU then restoring and it still got hung up at the same spot.. I guess I'll just take it to the Apple Store

    Do you have WiFI Sync installed ? It will stop restores. If so, delete it.

    The one on my Mac or iPhone? I had WiFi sync installed on my phone before it needed a restore, and now there is really no way to go in and delete it. Or are you saying delete the program on my Mac that works with WiFi sync?
