I seem to be stuck in a loop going back and fourth between iTunes and Tiny Umbrella. How can I resolve this so iTunes will accept my iPhone again? The iPhone is showing the picture like in

with the arrow the the iTunes Logo on the phones screen. then it says: Its quite simple to get out of Recovery Mode, simply down this nifty program called TinyUmbrella (Windows, Mac) along with Fix Recovery (Windows, Mac).

Once you’re done downloading TinyUmbrella, launch it, and then click on the “Exit Recovery” button. In a matter of seconds, your device will boot up normally.

How do I use Fix Recovery? and is there something I am missing? Clicking on "Exit Recovery" (Is the TSS server supposed to be running or not?)

WHen I click on "Exit Recovery" the Silver Apple logo appears for a while and eventiall goes from Tiny back to iTunes and says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Help. How do I get out of this circle?

Thank you!

When itunes detects it in recovery mode, doesn't it prompt you to restore it?

Hi Venus - yes. iTunes detected it in recovery mode - Prompting me to Restore - however I was not able to complete the Restore process. I watched it and the progress line went only about 2/3 to 3/4 the way until iTunes kicked it out of recovery and gave me an error message 1013. At which point I mistakenly went to Tiny Umbrella (initially thinking that the Recovery process was completed). It really wasn't. It wasn't until I fixed my hosts file that iTunes was finally able to complete the recovery process. The solution can be seen in greater detail in question: Apparently, Tiny Umbrella was not yet needed because Apple is still signing 4.3.3 Thank you everyone for your thoughts and comments!
