    Default Phone STUCK in recovery. Wanting clear jailbreak so i can take advantage of warranty.
    I was messing around stupidly on it this morning and its now stuck in recovery. M iphone was tethered and i was using blackrain. Its now not coming out of recovery and all i wanna do is restore it so i can take advantage of the warranty before it expires!

    Point your hosts file towards Cydia :

    Run Notepad as Admin , open up hosts file and add this line :
    C windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    save it and reboots your pc
    Now do the Shift + Restore

    Click Start > type notepad > highlight the notepad > right click > run as admin if your are not using windows XP. Then from the notepad box , open up to the hosts file > you may want to click *.* to see the hosts file.
    Add the ip address at the bottom and mark the rest infront with # to temporary ignore.

    Oh! if your iphone is in recovery, like mattvu said, use kick out of recovery , your iphone has to be bootable in order for tiny umbrella to recognize.
    The hosts file is here : Cwindows\systems32\drivers\etc\hosts.

    If you still cannot find your hosts file, maybe you have to go for a basic computer lesson first

    If your iphone is in DFU mode, then you can't exit with kick out of recovery.

    Tell me what you see on your iphone screen ?

    You definitely need a restore.

    Ive gotten it to start again, but still need to restore and update it. i think i edited the host file the last line it says is 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com and when i tried to restore it it got further the ever till it gave me an error 1602

    This is what I did when mine was stuck in recovery mode. I closed Tiny Umblrella and ITUNE. and I started Itune. It says iphone 4 in recovery mode. Then I opened tiny umbrella and kicked it off recovery mode. This did it for me. I hope I am not off topic. If I am my apology.
