    After several months of error free operation my iphone 3Gs entered recovery mode after coming out of a power saver mode. My battery is defective and I am waiting or a replacement but I don't want to do a restore as I will loose too much information since it has been a while sine I restored it. I tried TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery mode but it entered it again before exiting recovery mode.

    What can I do without restoring.

    Please help. Having entered this mode, my phone is useless until I restore, the data must still be there as it was 20 minutes ago.

    Please help really need to act fast.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    first thing I tried, did not work.

    Figured it was a glitch having to do with defective battery and the way it suddenly died while surfing. Never had this happen so I could wait for someone with that magic fix or just restore from the last backup--still lost some data but that's life. Should have backed up long before then anyway but still had to use
    TU to return to 4.2.1 then jailbreak again then grab **********--appsync--then resync with itunes--never any fun but lucky for me I had somewhat recent back and all the other goodies to make this work.

    Thanks
