    Ok so I tried installing some apps free but before i did i had to go to winscp and change the permissions to something named mobile installation. When i did i messed it up and stayed in the apple logo but i later fixed it since the iphone loaded up through my pc. I idiotically tried it again and got my phone in recovery mode... is there anyway i can get it out of recovery mode? or is there anyway i can access the inside while it's in recovery mode? i know exactly how to fix the problem but just need access to the inside.

    yeah mines a little different. i did have your same problem earlier today and fixed it but then retried install the program by ssh which kinda has me ****ed in restore mode.

    Once when I did something similar, I was able to log into the iPhone via SSH/SFTP while it was stuck on Apple Logo, revert whatever changes I did, reboot and everything was dandy!

    Good luck, I hope it works out

    wow im pissed. i thought restore mode would atleast back up my stuff and i would get my contacts back atleast. there goes everything i've had for months down the drain just for trying to get some free apps. i guess i should've waited for a response longer.
