    Default Update Help
    Well, I am stuck on the apple logo and I am trying to do an Update/Restore to iOS 4.2 but iTunes can't connect to the server so it isn't recognizing my phone even in UDF mode. I have already downloaded the firmware update. Is there any way to update without iTunes connecting to their server? Someone Please Help.... If not with the update, maybe a fix to get my phone running again.

    Thanks,
    MystikFix

    What do you mean without connecting to iTunes server? As far as I'm concerned, that is a necessary process. Is your Internet working? Usually it says failure to connect to the server because it can't get Internet access. Or you could try on another machine.

    I am not at home and won't be for a week. I need to get my phone back up and running. I figured out that the reason iTunes can't connect to the server is because there is a webguard filter here and it blocks certain sites like iTunes (multimedia downloads). I already have the firmware downloaded so i am trying to find a way to install it without having to go through itunes.
