    Default Stuck in Recovery Mode: help!
    Hope someone can help me with this.

    I've been a jailbreaker ever since the iPhone came out so I feel relatively "advanced", but I'm stumped with my current problem.

    I've been running a jailbroken 3G phone on ATT (so not unlocked). This morning I was playing around with SwapFont and my phone rebooted and got stuck on the apple logo screen. I tried doing a restore which completed...sort of. Now the phone is stuck in the recovery screen.

    When I hook up iTunes, I get the message "The iPod software update server could not be contacted" and my iPhone never shows up as a device.

    I've tried:
    [1]entering DFU mode
    [2]creating a new Account and restoring from there.
    [3] restoring on another computer (a PC).
    [4] launching QuickPwn (but it appears to never be able to see that an iPhone is attached).

    Am I hosed? I really have read through the forums here and couldn't find a solution (so I didnít just leap to posting a question before researching).

    Your help would be most appreciated!


    Thanks again.
    I figured out the problem.

    Evidently, unbeknownst to me, my Internet connection (via Ethernet) at work has started blocking some traffic -- namely iTunes "ipod server". (Other than this there is no evidence that my Internet access is restricted; I have full web access including the iTunes store). When I disconnected the Ethernet and used the public WiFi access, iTunes was able to connect to "the server" and it then recognized my phone as being connected. With that, I was able to do a restore.
