    Hi,
    I would appreciate if anybody can help me!

    I tried to update my iphone4. it was originally JB using jailbreakme and it was 4.0.1 back in September i think. I haven't updated any firmware since then because I thought it could cause some issues like today.

    i tried to update firmware today by backing up my iphone first on itunes, and then downloading 4.3.3 on itunes. I also downloaded 4.3.3 firmware and snowbreeze for jailbreak.

    Instead of restoring and updating with 4.3.3 on itunes first, i made a mistake and clicked update first. It froze in the middle of update so I unplugged USB from my Mackbook Pro.

    After that, my phone went into recovery mode and when I click restore, it goes about halfway like before and stalls with apple logo and loading bar showing up to about 60% progress.

    any ideas? my phone doesn't work now. thank you so much!

    Put it into DFU mode and then plug it into itunes.

    Are you sure you are putting it into DFU mode the correct way? Are you unlocked?
