Hi guys,

I tried to restore my iPhone 5 today from my iTunes backup which I made before jail breaking. iOS 7.0.4.

ITunes places the phone in the anticipated recovery mode and begins the process however it seems to hang on "waiting for iPhone" the phone screen turns black and I wait about 15 minutes until iTunes reports that it could not restore with an error 4005.

A hard reset on the phone leads to the recovery mode screen instructing a connection with iTunes. The process then starts again, no amount of button combos will exit the recovery mode. I can however put it into DFU mode but the exact same behavior occurs when trying to restore or restore from backup in iTunes.

To gain access to the phone I had to download TinyUmbrella to force the exit out of recovery mode. This then allowed the phone to boot but I'm back at square one and unable to restore.

Can anyone point me in the right direction here? After 4hours fiddling I'm chasing my tail. Thank you in advance for any advice.

Try the following:

  • Reboot computer
  • Different USB cable
  • Different USB port
  • Different computer
  • Reinstalling iTunes completely
  • Redownloading iOS 7.0.4

Even though they shouldn't, some of these can actually fix this sort of issue.

I've just had the same problem, but managed to solve it. Take a look at this article over at Apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1538 (it may require you to read a lot). You can skip straight to step "5. Verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed" then expand "If the device is not recognized while in Recovery Mode". Follow the steps in there, and you should be good to go.

All the best.

See here. It is purely a USB timing issue. The steps outlined would work. Beware that iPhone went into Recovery mode. For A5 and + iDevices this invariably leads to Full Restore. With the release of iOS 7.0.6 now, you may have to do a Full Restore to current iOS and then attempt restoring from backup or preferably sync data back onto iPhone using tabs in iTunes.
