    I deleted some pics & vids off my full camera roll so I was able to update. I looked down at my phone and it wouldn't wake up. I knew it was fully charged. I plugged it into the wall and saw this! Witw! I've never seen this before!-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1410555457.424282.jpg

    It's DFU mode. Try turning it off and back on if not you'll have to plug in and reload the OS.

    It's in recovery mode. Connect it to your computer, open up iTunes and see if iTunes can kick it out of recovery mode before detecting it. If you do get the message from iTunes "iTunes detect your iPhone in recovery mode" then you will need to restore the iOS. Update your iTunes to the latest version to avoid restoration error messages from iTunes.

    I did actually update iTunes the other day when I had my PC on. Sooooo....what's it really mean when I restore the iOS? Sounds drastic. And I could kick myself I broke the first rule and didn't back up before I started!

    Restore the iOS is to put the iOS in a brand new state, as if you just open it from it box for the first time.
    Since you didn't perform the backup of your iPad, you are going to start from scratch again. But iTunes use to perform an auto backup each time you connect the device to your computer and open up iTunes, if you have not turn off auto backup, and you frequently use to connect your device to iTunes, then chances are that there will be a backup of your device in iTunes.
    Now connect your device and perform the restore, let it finish the restore till you see iTunes asking you to set the device as a new one or to restore a backup (if there are backups within iTunes of course) then chose your most recent backup and restore the backup into your device. Good luck
