    are you running or have tinyumbrella installed on your computer? if you are running windows, check and clear your hosts file as tinyumbrella blocks itunes from contacting and verifying your restore with apples servers. you can also try putting your phone in DFU mode.

    On Mac:

    • Make sure you are logged in as administrator
    • Open Finder
    • Hold down COMMAND + SHIFT keys and press G
    • Enter /private/etc/ in the field and press Go
    • Find hosts file in the directory
    • Drag the file to your desktop
    • Open it in text editor
    • Remove the line that has gs.apple.com entirely or put a # at the beginning of it to comment it out
    • Save the file
    • Drag it back to the /private/etc/ folder
    • Enter your username and password to authenticate

    On Windows:

    • Locate the hosts file in one of the following directories:
    • Windows 95/98/Me c:\windows\hosts
    • Windows NT/2000/XP Pro c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    • Windows XP, Vista, 7 c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    • Right click on it and choose Open With then click on Notepad
    • Remove the line that has gs.apple.com completely and save the file
