An error occurred while restoring this iphone (-50).


You may have the wrong iTunes for that update (you need the newest iTunes in order to restore iPhone's). You might also be installed a outdated iOS, or a higher version than the device you are running can handle.

Tip

IPhone factory (hard) reset. (Final)


If you are facing application and startup errors with your iPhone, and you may have tried to perform a 'soft' reset which failed to work, the only solution would be to perform a hard reset.

Some of these system errors may include, application launch failure, failure to be detected by iTunes, startup failure (iPhone may freeze on startup), the solution may perform a full factory reset.

The only bad side is that, you will lose all your data, but, you will have a functioning iPhone. If you had earlier backed up some data, you can perform a system restore after performing the factory reset.

To perform a full factory reset, follow the procedures below:

1.Press the home button (the big circle below the screen) and the sleep wake button (the button on top of the iPhone) simultaneously. Ignore the “Slide to power off” message.
2.Hold both buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds.
3.The iPhone will shut down.
4.Wait for about 10 to 15 seconds then turn the iPhone back on by pressing the sleep/wake button.
5.You should now see the Apple logo, your iPhone is restarting and thus booting up.
6.The hard reset will have completed successfully.

System Recovery:
After the hard reset has been successfully complete, it will not be functioning so you will have to perform a System Recovery.
Please note that System Recovery is different from data restore.

Follow these steps to perform system recovery:
1. Plug in the iPhone into your computer.
2. Run and open iTunes.
3. iTunes will prompt a message that says “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.” Click OK.
4. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on “Restore”.
5. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will have been restored back to the state in which you had just bought it.

After the process is complete, you can restore your data from the backup you made, if you made any back ups before the problem occurred.

IPhone 3G Unknown Error Occurred 6 can't resotore to 3.0 help


turn the iPhone off, connect the cable to the computer, but do not connect to the iphone. Hold the home button and connect the iPhone to the computer. iTunes will recognize it in recovery mode. (You must have ipsw file) Hold shift and click restore. now look for the ipsw file, choose that file, and itunes will do the rest.

IPHONE HELP IPHONE HELP IPHONE HELP PLEASE HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!! I bought an unlocked iphone for use here in Australia. Firmware 1.4 It was working fine until I downloaded some applications...


You should jailbreak your phone, maybe the phone career is not compatible or something, if you want to jailbreak it just go to blackra1n.com, download the software and then just click on make it rain, that will solve all your problems, by the way... you have to take off the sim card before you do this.
