I tried the installer update to 1.1.3. It rebooted and 1.1.3 was working fine. Then I opened SMB preferences, the phone reset to the connect to iTunes screen with the cord going to the iTunes icon. I get the above message. Any ideas?

just restore it again
I don't see how I can reset it. This time, instead of asking me to restore it, I just get this screen. Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks in advance for feedback and advice :)

close down iTunes and turn off iPhone...restart iTunes, then restart phone. should recognize restore mode at that point

Thank you but that did not work. Is there a program I can use to access and maybe wipe out everything on the iPhone to make iTunes look at it differently? I'd like to take it to the Apple store, but the application that shows batter level in numbers and the status bar notifier still appears to work. Apple will know it was hacked.

I'm scared :oops:
