    Default iPhone stuck in recovery mode
    I recently got an iPhone 3GS off a friend and it was stuck in recovery mode. I have tried to restore it multiple times in iTunes but it gets stuck at the stage where it says "Waiting for iPhone...". Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try restoring on a different computer. You can also use recboot to try to kick it out of recovery mode.

    What iOS firmware are you trying to restore to?
