Fix iPhone 5 in Recovery Mode – Exit Connect to iTunes Screen

SPONSORED LINKS

Restoring or updating your iPhone 5 should be a simple process. However, occasionally things do go wrong and iTunes will display error code 1015. This means that your iPhone 5 is stuck in recovery mode meaning you can’t do anything with it and the screen will show “Connect to iTunes “.

The best way to get out of this situation is to use a well-known tool called TinyUmbrella.

  1. First of all download TinyUmbrella
  2. Now, making sure your device is connected to your computer, launch TinyUmbrella
  3. It will automatically detect that your iPhone 5 is stuck in recovery mode
  4. Select the Exit Recovery button and it should throw your iPhone 5 out of recovery.
  5. Alternatively, you can right-click on your iPhone 5 name from a list at the side of TinyUmbrella and select Kick out of recovery.

This will take your iPhone 5 out of recovery and back to you home screen where you should find it has been successfully updated or restored.

    I found a phone about 1 month ago and it is in lost mode, I called the number it displayed and no one answered I called periodically over a few days after that and even went to the police to see if anyone had reported a stolen phone (small town).
    It has been long enough that i have decided to keep it, will tiny umbrella give me access to it? I have tried putting it into DFU but it still requires a password and is in lost mode so I am not sure that I am doing it right. If this doesn’t help than does anyone know how to open it with Itunes(i don’t have an account)?

    Went thru the steps described for TinyUmbrella and the iPhone Stuck In Recovery Mode but no luck -- each time the software tells me that the device is not connected (even though it shows up and allows me to chose “exit recovery”, etc. Tried different USB cables and ports……phone went into recovery mode on Thursday morning (5/1) have not had success in bringing it back to life since (guess that’s kind of obvious if I’m posting here!)

    I had previously updated to the latest iOS without any issues -- phone was working fine before it shut down on me -- I had sent a couple of texts and made at least 1 call that morning….appreciate any suggestions you may have!!!
    P.S. Never been jailbroken…..mainly used as phone -- no music, videos, etc…….

    Downloaded Tinyumberella -- how do I launch it?

  11. AaronnHotchner says:

    First is is to put your iPhone in DFU mode.
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the Power and Home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the Home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode.

    Second is to fix with iPhone Data Recovery(http://www.iphone-data-eraser.com/iphone-data-recovery.html).
    Step 1: Fix the Problem of iPhone Stuck in Recovery Mode(http://www.iphone-data-eraser.com/recovery/iphone-stuck-in-recovery-mode.html)
    Step 2: Recover Data from your iPhone Directly
    Step 3: Recover Lost Data from iTunes Backup
    You can try both of them.

    Hi There..

    I am currently having problem with my iphone 5. I was doing **** stupid things on cydia respitory and suddenly on the last attempt, my phone showing on black loading screen like somekind of Cydia respring about a couple of minutes and did not back on either to cydia or normal mode but instead, the phone back to restart (rebooting) then instead of booting to normal mode but it doesn’t, it goes back to cydia respring stuff like before then rebooting again and again.

    I am having such weird trouble in this three days and till now i wasn’t find anything in all the website or never seen anyone having same problem as mine.

    I did used Tiny umbrella and iReb that i download from some friends website to exit the recovery mode when i put my phone onto it but still the problem precised which rebooting like what happen as i had mentioned above. During the recovery mode, my phone could not detect by itunes at all. but while on respring mode, itunes detect my phone and when i try to restore, it was run but as the problem keep rebooting, the phone reboot after while during the restore process then start to happen like before reboot and reboot…so the restore or update process could not be complete.

    Could some one help me to solve my problem please..?

    Thank you so much…

    My phone Details:

    Iphone 5

    iOs: 7.0.3

    Evasi0n7 Jailbroken

    Guys.. found another way to do this.
    after you stuck on connect to itunes. go to red snow (redsn0w_win_0.9.15b3) go to extras and go to Pwned DFU. then it will say you end up with restore mode. not DFU mode. switch off da device and again try, after doing 2 3 time, you phone will get back to normal.. experienced with iPhone 5.
