While today doing over the air update from ?.??-6.01 on unjailbroken iphone, upon final phone reboot, phone enters recovery mode.
newest itunes says must restore phone.
DOwnloaded redsnow, in attempt to jailbreak and get access to txt messages, and pics.
Using 6.0 IPSW downloaded from apple. Phone suck in recovery loop.
followed instructions, connected phone to USB to computer, closed itunes, disabled Avast AV and malwarebytes, ran redsnow with admin rights, custom selected 6.0 IPSW download.. hit back, and then tried to jailbreak, entered DFU, and it tried to run, but it ran through quick and "Exploit Failed"
Tried the same thing with JusT Boot.. runs through qucick, and exploit failed., :(
Please, any suggestions to recover at least txts or pics much appreciated... or to jailbreak.
It worked. Not sure why it took 10-15 trys, doing the same thing.
The phone wouldnt boot, but it ran enough to use a few free tools to pull off the data. One tool ..something dr fone, worked the best, and required the phone to be in DFU mode to operate correctly.
Thanks for the help guys.
