    okay my backup i wanted to use is showing up in itunes.. but it doesnt make my iPhone show the normal restore in progress ( or whatever the phone shows when it is being restored from backup )

    and the bar in itunes just keeps moving and nothing happens. ive retried this process 3 times and still wont work

    It usually does that for a while before it starts actually restoring. As if it is checking with the phone to see what needs to be restored.

    I had the same problem restoring the other day - it took a long time for the progress bar to appear. After about 30 minutes, it got very close to the end and stopped, so I rebooted the iPhone after waiting another 10 minutes. Finally, after multiple attempts, I decided to just let it go. Came back a few hours later and it was done.
