Watched a gazillion You Tube videos but nothing seems to work.
I promise to back up as soon as I get in and access the photos off i Phone. It is really frustrating for anybody to encounter such an embarrassing issue, for which you can do nothing but learn a lesson indeed - promising to backup i Phone timely.
Whatever the reason, you can place any i OS device into recovery mode, which allows you to restore a bricked i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch with the help of i Tunes.
You’ll need a computer (Mac or Windows) and a USB cable to complete the Recovery Mode based restore process.
You can either restore from a backup, or set up the device as new, that is your choice.
Remember, Recovery Mode is different than DFU mode because DFU mode bypasses the bootloader which allows for things like downgrading firmware.
Select the most recent backup date from the drop-down menu when i Tunes prompts you to set up your i Phone. Then disconnect your i Phone and breath a deep sigh of relief.
Right now, it's in recovery mode with that dreadful plug to i Tunes icon.
How can I get my i Phone out of recovery mode, even without i Tunes?
i Phone Data Recovery software can do you a favor to solve this emergent issue in an easy, quick and effective way.
However, i Phone 7/7 Plus stuck in recovery mode does not equal losing all the data of your i Phone.
That i Phone is stuck in recovery mode always happens when you jailbreak your i Phone or update the i OS on your i Phone.
You can not downgrade firmware with Recovery Mode, you can only upgrade or restore a device.
