    Default Recovery Mode
    How to enter Recovery Mode (on an activated or unactivated iPhone):

    1) Connect the iPhone to your computer.

    2) Hold down the Power and Home buttons. The iPhone will reset. CONTINUE holding the buttons down for 20-25 seconds. Do not release the buttons during the reboot process.

    The iPhone should have an error icon and a message saying "Please connect to iTunes":

    A dialog box should appear in iTunes saying "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.":

    Phone will return to 100% normal working order after holding Home+Power for a few seconds (5-10)

    would this mean that if the phone was already unlocked by anysim, the unlock would survive the restore since im restoring to the same FW (1.1.1)

    Im stuck on this BSD root md0, major 2, etc screen. Recovery mode makes itunes notice the phone for about 10 seconds. then it just goes back to the black screen, whether I hold down the buttons anymore or not.

    hi all, iTune 7.7 or 7.6 detects my phone in recovery mode but after that iphone was disconnected, I tried many times but nothing change.
    now my Iphone shows a mode like "USB cable pointing to CD" whenever i turn on my phone.
    all the time connect and disconnect.
    Please help me to figure out what kind of problem is that ?

    Sounds like your phone is in a factory state.. you need to activate/unlock/jailbreak it.
