    Hi all

    Perhaps a little stupid but i have just upgraded my phone (or tried at least) to OS4 from an old version jailbreak version (not too worries about having a jailbroken phone at present). Any way it did the back up etc but failed.

    Heres the situation i have

    when i turn the phone on it briefly shows the aple logo and then just displays the usb picture. when i plug it in it pops up itunes is n recovery mode you must restore. when i click restore it comes up preparing iphone for restore, this occurs for some time and then i ge a ms box saying the iphone could not be restored. an unknown error occured (2003)


    I would be greatful of some much needed advice on how to get my phone up and running again

    Exact same issue I'm having. My laptop asks me if I'd like to install "Apple Mobile Device Recovery Mode", but then says it can't install it because the wizard can't find the necessary software.

    iRecovery: Get Out iPhone from Recovery Mode Loop on Restart | iPhone This has helped me twice get out of recovery loop

    I will do this tonight & report back with success or failure asap! Until then my iPhone has displayed the "RED DEAD BATTERY" screen a few times in the past 2 or 3 days I've been in this loop, is it charging in the recovery mode loop? OR should i Charge it in "DFU" mode? Also should I charge it in wall charger or PC's usb port? Lastly, I have DFU'd and reset a bunch of times attempting to get out of the loop. If iRecovery work's to get me out will it be still JB'd with Spirit like before or will I be restoring & re-JB'ing it?

    What program do I use to install the Hackintosh.rar file to my PC? It's blank & it won't install or open.

    I just read that iRecovery is not a program to be opened it's a command line to be run. I am searching now how to run it on my windows vista pc but if somebody can please explain how to use iRecovery, it will help out in the meantime. Thanks, =)
