I was on ios 6, i thought of upgrading to to ios 7.0.4. when opened itunes, i even skipped the backup part :(. directly went to the update/restore area. i clicked update with shift key, i have ios 7.0.4 stock fw. when the updating was going on, it certainly give me error 6. but then iphone wont turn on, stuck at apple logo and again reboot after sometime.. first of all tell me did i lose my data? if not, how can i get it back? i even used msftguy's ramdisk method. after getting access to root via Putty. "" wont work, it says "could not mount system volume; retry later or file a bug". dont know why.. Please help, how can i get back my data? :(.

ssh_rd is the only way to get your data, then try the itunes restore again.

I'm afraid you can only restore from a last backup you ever did. And why hit the shift key if automatically helps you update to 7.0.4?

I had this problem with my iPad 3 and I had to go to Apple and have it replaced. Nothing else could be done with mine. They covered it though cuz they couldn't even get it to come on.

I have the apple care extended 2 year warranty. It's worth the money.

Mine was actually stuck in recovery mode. We're it shows the iTunes logo and the cord pointing toward it. And when it was plugged to my PC it wouldn't even read my iPad. It said N/A for my serial number. But my iPhone 4S was fine on there. It was weird. I think there maybe some hope for you though. I just don't know of anything else to help. You've tried quite a bit.

(25 Jan '14, 09:22) sjdu sjdu's gravatar image

(25 Jan '14, 09:35) Shonc502 Shonc502's gravatar image

well, there is an apple with blank progress bar. when used msftguy's atumoatic ssh ramdisk. even i gain root access.. but fails at on putty.

Is it possible if i restore it with 7.0.4 and then do recovery? Will i recover my pics? If yes. Any software?

(26 Jan '14, 07:22) sjdu sjdu's gravatar image

no, only ssh_rd, restore will reformat the disc, maybe try ssh_rd on another computer

(26 Jan '14, 08:46) daniel664 daniel664's gravatar image

That sounds like mine. But I actually went to a different computer when it happened AGAIN last night and it worked just fine. Try a different computer if at all possible and put in dfu mode
