iPhone4 stuck in recovery mode!



  Audi S1
I've been having problems all night with trying to restore my iPhone4, I got there in the end but it seemed to skip restoring my back up.

So I went through the restore process again, iTunes through a fit, crashed out and left my phone frozen in recovery mode.

I've tried everything I can think of to get it out of it. I'm using a Mac if there is any software or anything someone can suggest? I can feel it's going to be a long night!

As it stands I have the Apple logo and an empty none moving progress bar and have done for the past 25 mins...

Help :(

Press and hold the home button and power button for a while till it reboots and then try again. If it still wont work, try restoring on another computer

Anything else?. It's such a pain in the ass. I've been none stop trying to fix this since 7pm!

The thing is my MBP isn't even recognising that it's plugged in, nor if i plug it into my mains... weird one. I'll give everything ago though!

To complicate things, my home button has been really temperamental all day. So I don't know if it's working or not. I think I will give up soon and get it booked in, don't have the time at all to be going to an Apple shop!

Right just held the home and power button down for about 5 mins and it looks like the battery has gone... which could be a good sign. Let's see what happens now.

My phone got wet last night from a leak in my roof. Long story. It's could be water damage or it could be something else which I can't speak about on here - either way I know I've restore it now so when it comes back on it should look like a new iPhone. Only problem now is trying to get it back to how it was, hopefully my backup didn't f**k up!

Lol

I think the iPhone charging port is fncked. I have the charging symbols on the screen atm, but it's flashing between the plug and the lighting and just lighting... This is causing so much s**t.

My ceiling has been leaking for 1 month and it's still not been bloody fixed, to top it off it's fucked my iPhone. I fell to sleep on my bean bag with my phone on the floor like a bell, woke up to water dripping on me and my iPhone in a puddle of water.

Charged it over night... only charges up to 14% but managed to restore my back up. Apple appointment is book in for tonight, lets hope they replace it. The home button is completely fucked.

Went into Apple, showed them my problem. He didn't really let me finish explaining. He took it off off me, had a play and went 'I'm going to replace it for you, is that okay'

So now I have a brand new iPhone4 :) wooop

Top service again from Apple!
