    Something is wrong if it's taking that long. Why don't you move up to iTunes 8.2 and put 3.0 firmware on it?

    it's not that simple.

    1. i don't know what gen phone she has. i'm guessing 1g/2g
    2. i don't know what firmware she was on before. she gave me hers cause she messed it up somehow.

    what should i do? can someone aim me at iELLESS. i really need help

    DFU mode
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode.

    Alternative Method:
    Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connects and disconnects.
    Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
    Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button

    Just look on the back to see which version it is. Metal back is 2g, plastic black with painted letters is 3g, and chrome letters is 3gs. Upgrade your iTunes and iPhone to 3.0. Something probably went wrong with that restore, so I would try again. Don't be scared to upgrade, it's really no different.

    I've been on AIM with him for about an hour, he has error 23 in iTunes. May be a brick. We have been searching and he has started a thread about error 23 now. Hope he gets it fixed.
