Contunue holding the home button until the you the itunes logo and the picture of the cable on the iPhone screen. This may take up to 30 seconds.

4. Voila iTunes should now detect the iPhone and you can perform a restore.

Hope this helps someone. Maybe stickie this?


Cheers
thanks so so much for this.
Went and did the iphone 4 through that website hack, installed an app, did a reboot and then , wouldnt restart, stuck on the apple logo.

Was thinking for a moment that I would have to get it done privately.

I am NOT responsible for anyone doing this. I did this myself and it worked fine.

2. Once the iPhone is off plug one end of the usb cable into the PC .

Red face Help!!!

Ok so I bought this ipod touch 2nd gen from this guy...dumb choice I know. Anyhow...It is disabled and says that it will take like 22 million and some odd minutes before the password can be tried again. I read online that in this situation you can reset the ipod I tried ten million different ways and nothing. The ipod turns on and buttons appear to work b/c it lets me slide it off. I tunes won't even pick it up on my computer...please help. I would hate to have spent all this money on this for a waste. Thanks.
