    Default Iphone stuck in recovery mode during 1.1.1 install
    hey guys, i was updating my iphone to the new firmware (i have no 3rd party apps installed just jailbreaked) but during the process it was stuck on Updating Firmware, so i did a reset using the sleep/wake + home buttons and then now my iphone tells me to connect to itunes. however, when i do and press restore it doesn't restore either. i get an error that says "iPhone could not be restored. Unknown error occurred (1011)."

    it might not've been stuck. mine took about 10-12 minutes.

    try using ms cleaner to uninstall iTunes then reinstall iTunes and try a sync. you may then try upgrading again but we did warn about jsilbraked phones. lastly try the update again if you really want it.

    I'm stuck in connect to Itunes with no way of getting out of it. iTunes keeps failing each time with 1604 error. AppTap still there for good.

    Any help appreciated.

    Uninstall and reinstall itunes, restart your computer and restart your phone.
