    I need all the help that I can get. I went to go restore to 4.1 and now I'm stuck in a restore loop. Help?

    If iTunes isn't recognizing it, put it in DFU mode and restore.

    The thing is that iTunes is recognizing it.

    Okay, what happens when you try to restore? Are you getting an error message?

    Nothing happens. The progress bar in iTunes freezes when it is almost full and the progress bar on my iPhone 4 freezes halfway through. No error messages :/

    Alright. I had the same thing happen last week. Do you have Wi-Fi Sync installed on your Mac?

    Yes. Wi-Fi Sync stalls the restores. Hold on and I'll get you the directions for uninstalling it. :)

    Uninstall Wi-Fi Sync on your Mac with Terminal, reboot and then restore. The Wi-Fi Sync uninstaller will automatically open up a Terminal box.

    Do you have Wi-Fi Sync installed? If so, uninstall it, reboot and try to restore again. The PC version includes an uninstaller. If you don't have Wi-Fi Sync installed, let me know what happens when you try to restore. Does it hang or do you get an error message?

    I'm glad I could help some people out here. :) It took me at least 6 hours to isolate the problem and I was going crazy, myself.
