How To Get Your iPhone Out of Recovery Mode

Ads by Google

Exit Recovery ModeSometimes, when trying to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch you might run into some unexpected errors that can leave your device stuck in either DFU or Recovery mode. The same can happen if you intentionally put your device in Recovery mode to solve an issue but for some reason then it stops responding just then.

If this ever happened to you and you want to know what to do to get your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch out of Recovery mode, you’ve come to the right place.

Follow the steps below to get your iPhone or other iOS device out of Recovery mode.

Step 1: Download the TinyUmbrella application. It is available for both the Mac and Windows PCs. According to the developer, the application supports even iOS 6, so any iOS device owner should be able to use it.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone in Recovery mode to your Mac or PC using its USB cable.

Step 3: Open TinyUmbrella and give it a few seconds until it recognizes your iPhone or other iOS device in Recovery mode.

Step 4: Once your iOS device in Recovery mode is recognized by TinyUmbrella, click on the button Exit Recovery located at the top right of TinyUmbrella’s window.

Exit Recovery mode

That’s it. Your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch should be booting normally now and be ready to use in a few seconds.

Note: Also, when you opened TinyUmbrella, you should have noticed that the application also allows you to enter Recovery mode if needed. To enable this mode, simply click on the appropriate button.

If you have any other problems using this app or have some thoughts on it that you would like to share with us, head for the comments and let us know.

      Which iOS device do you have Ozzy? The app should be compatible with any of them running iOS 6.

        When I plug my iPhone in, nothing happens. The “Exit Recovery” button is not highlighted so I cannot even click it. Suggestions?

        • andrea

          that happened to me too, you just have to go on the side and click on which device (your iphone should come up as a number) you want to fix, and then you’ll be able to click the button

      Hi Darina,

      Can you please tell me what iOS device you have and which iOS version it is running?

  • Jeff

    If I click Exit Recovery Mode it just goes back to the itunes restore icon. What am I doing wrong? I have a Windows 7 Computer and an iPod Touch 4G.

    • http://www.guidingtech.com/ Alvaro Bernedo

      Something odd is happening with some users. But there is also Recboot, which performs almost the same function. Take a look at it and try it if you want.

      http://www.guidingtech.com/16209/recboot-iphone-into-recovery-mode/

      • Jeff

        My iPod works now. Recboot didn’t work. I put my device in DFU mode and clicked on iTunes and clicked Restore.

        • http://www.guidingtech.com/ Alvaro Bernedo

          Glad to read that you are up and running again!

  • Diyashan Ramduth

    im using the latest version of TU, but when i click on exit recovery, my iPhone 4S(tried updating to 6.0.1) just goes back in to recovery mode, and iTunes is giving me so many errors while updating.. any help or info to rectify my problem would be great.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kyle.rock.393 Kyle Rock

    did not work, im still in recovery mode

  • Tiffany

    It turned my phone off, then on and the itunes came up and said my phone is in recovery mode. Then the picture came up again and I am back where I started. I keep clicking exit and it’s not working.

  • Gibbo70

    Hi Alvaro,
    I have a jailbroken (absinthe 2.04) 3GS that is stuck in recovery mode. Tiny Umbrella wont get it out, even in DFU mode using FIX RECOVERY. I tried RecBoot, but same problem, its like an endless loop. Any ideas how to fix the problem ?
    I could just do a restore with Itunes, but then it will update to ios 6.01 and I wont be able to Jailbreak. I would like to stay on ios 5.1.1 until an untethered Jailbreak is available for ios 6.01.
    Any help would be much appreciated as i’m stuck without a phone atm…

    Regards, Gibbo

  • Duke

    HELP! Tried to update my wife’s iphone 4 from 5.1 to 6.01 using itunes. Got almost to end and unexpected error popped up. No stuck with recovery screen on phone. Has all her calendars, kid’s pics, etc. I did a backup before doing this. Tried Tiny Umbrella to get out but doesn’t work – gets stuck in loop. Can’t find RecBoot link that works. If I restore thru itunes, can I load her backup stuff or is it gone? Save the marriage please.

    • http://www.guidingtech.com/ Alvaro Bernedo

      Hi Duke. If you backed up before updating then everything should be fine. Just restore using iTunes and choose the backup you just made when prompted.

      • Duke

        Worked! Thanks. Marriage is safe till I do something else.

      This application simply helps you exit recovery mode and will not affect any of your iPhone’s content or settings.

    On the left hand side of my screen i see an area that says “Recovery Devices” my iphone shows up as a number, which is the same number down in the ECID (Dec): section, however whenever I click “Exit Recovery” my phone exits and then automatically reenters and i’m just stuck w/ the iTunes pic and the usb on the screen. The number my device is given in “Recovery Devices”shows up again under the first one…any clues on how to fix?

      i downloaded tiny umbrella but it wont allow me to click exit reccovery

  • bd

    This all sounded very promising…but I can’t get it to work for me. After clicking “Exit Recovery”, the iPhone screen does change to the just-an-apple-in-the-middle startup screen, but a second later reverts to the white-USB-cable-pointing-at-the-iTunes-logo screen. And nothing has changed. Any suggestions?

    • http://www.facebook.com/stuart.roberts.733 Stuart Roberts

      By trial and error i got it to work, and it got my iphone 4s out of recovery mode that it had been stuck in for 2 days. itunes was no use at all.

      When the TinyUmbrella window opens it will show your phone on the left, as a connected device. It gives it a number.

      Click on that number and then you will be able to click on the ‘Exit Recovery’ button.

      Once you do that, wait till the Apple logo appears on your phone, and immediately disconnect the phone from the computer.

      That’s what worked for me. As usual, you do all this stuff at your own risk – I can’t guarantee it will work for you.

      • satya

        thanx buddy it worked for me, thanx a million….

      • Tiffany

        Thanks. This worked for mine

      • Sergio

        Stuart, This worked for me, thank you so much!!! It took some time and patience, but the moment the apple logo appeared i yanked it out and it booted up!

      • Sarah

        I followed Stuart’s instructions, and I got my iphone 4 out of recovery mode and all of my data, photos were all still there. Thank you Stuart!

      • adam

        hi stuart, was just wondering if this could work on a jailbroken iphone 4s running 5.1.1. just so you should know, it got stuck in recovery mode after i tried upgrading to ios7

      • Chad

        I have a iPhone 4s. I have been using it normally – never jailbroken. I updated to ios7 last night and today my phone has been stuck in recovery mode. Tiny Umbrella will only make the apple logo appear for a couple seconds but then it reverts right back to the iTunes logo with USB connecting to it. Anyone able to help? I am trying to get photos, contacts, etc off the phone, whereas iTunes just wants to restore everything and wipe it clean in order to get things working again.
        Chad

        • Mel

          Chad, I’m in the same boat that you are. Have you had any progress since?

          • Chad

            No luck. I went to a local Apple store and the no help there. They basically said they would try what I had tried. I also tried using Tiny Umbrella on a PC with an older version of iTunes, and the iPhone screen it keep ping-ponging back and forth between the apple logo and the ITunes logo with USB connecting. I finally gave up and tried to restore the iPhone last night, but that did not even work. I am very disappointed ith how this attempt to upgrade to ios 7 has rendered my phone inoperable. I am calling Apple again today. They need to fix this or they need to replace it, or they may have just lost an iPhone customer.

            • Marty

              I totally agree Chad! I have been a loyal customer and as told the tech on the ph today….these updates are eventually forced on us and in some random cases….it renders our iphones useless…..not a bright business practice! Have you anything new in the last 16 hours since u posted…..I am SOOOOO NOT happy right now with Apple and will go to an android if they don’t make this right….problem there is, they cud NOT care less!! good luck with resolving ur issues!!!

        You are god sent Mr. Stuart Roberts. This worked like a charm!

      • Hast Jaf

        Hi there Stuart, I have tried your procedure many times consistently, however the same issue happens where my iPhone tends to snap back to the original recovery mode signal – connect to iTunes. My iPhone has not been Jailbroken therefore i’m in a confused state, as absolutely no software such as ‘TinyUmbrella’ works. Anything to resolve this?

      • Andy

        This trick worked for me!!

      • abhishek

        Point mentioned as “Once you do that, wait till the Apple logo appears on your phone, and immediately disconnect the phone from the computer” is very appropriate, I also got it working that way only – if you keep the cable connected after showing apple logo, it’ll again start showing connect to iTunes logo.

      • John Deer

        Just wanted to let you know even though this is an old thread , the “disconnect the phone from the computer when you see apple worked perfectly for me to kick me out of recovery on my iphone 5. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

      i keep getting the same problem, followed all the steps and my phone just constantly has the apple logo flashing on and off in the middle of the screen.

I thought i cud freely upgrade now and so tried to jump to iOS 6.0.1. When i got back home, left the upgrade running, i met a bricked phone.
    Just got it out of recovery but still on iOS 4.1 w baseband 5.13.04. Any ideas?

OK now I have to figure out how to back this thing up. Thanks again!

  • Jared

    Ive already tried recboot too get my ipod out of recovery mode but it didnt work, all it did was take it off the “USB going into iTunes symbol” and show the apple sign… Then it goes black for one second and back on the the recovery picture….
    If Tiny umbrella does not work I’m gonna explode because I make songs on my ipod using music studio plus I’ve made a lot of lyrics on the Notes app..I’m gonna loose everything… My beats… My lyrics… My progress on a song…

    I’m desperate too get get out of revovery mode without having too restore and loose all my data

    I’m gonna try tiny umbrella too see if works, I like how on every website I go too none of the websites say “recovery mode can happen because your ipod randomly did it”….. Because that’s what happen too me…I’m not jailbrokej and wasn’t trying too restore or upgrade when this happened…. I think it has something too do with using up all my memory because I couldn’t even take one picture or download one song…. I pray too god tiny umbrella works…

    Why not just unplug it from your computer and hold the power/home buttons until it comes on… you don’t need to download anything. CHEERS

    • mnfinfan

      cause that doesn’t work??? :)

      I wonder if there is a difference between it working for jailbroken devices or non, my wife’s iPhone 4S that we tried to update to iOS 6.x today is stuck in restore mode and is not jailbroken and this method does not work. Curious to see if the successful iPhones have been jailbroken.

    Techisky gives two other solutions other than “Exit recovery mode using Tiny Umbrella”: http://www.techisky.com/how-to/easy-fix-iphone-in-recovery-mode-upgrading-to-ios-6-2.html

    You can check if it works for you or not if Tiny Umbrella cannot work for you.

    This worked like a charm! An apple update put my iphone5 into recovery mode. I did not want to restore it because I would have lost all of my photos and videos. I found this post, installed TinyUmbrella and within 3 minutes I have my phone back. I was very surprised that a simple solution (and downloading a program from a forum) worked so clean and easy. Thank you very much to the creators of this software, and to the poster of this thread for saving my iphone. I will be disabling Apple updates from now on lol

    Hey all you people! Hey all you people! Hey all you people wont you listen to meeeeee!? Take Stuart Roberts’ advice. It worked for my ipad2. Download tiny umbrella.(yes you can do this with a windows computer) your device, if connected, should appear at the upper left side of the screen. click on exit recovery. Now your device should only show the the apple logo. Give it some time and your device will should be good to go. All your data should still be there as well.

    Thanks for this great tip/tool! My wife’s iPhone 4S (not Jailbroken) was updated to iOS 7 several days ago and all of a sudden tonight it went into Recover Mode on it’s own. Using this tool (and Stuarts advice) I managed to get it back into normal operation mode.

    Follow My Steps,

    Please do not try any software to get out of recovery mode on your iDevices etc.

    Just connect your iPhone to computer,
    Open latest iTunes version
    Just restore it from iTunes that’s it nothing is more trouble.

    Trust me it’s the best way to do it.

    I updated my iPhone 4S which was on iOS 5.1.1 to iOS 7.0.3 thru wifi by going to settings and updating directly thru phone. After that my phone got struck on recovery mode (itunes & data cable symbol). I tried force restart, holding power+home button releasing buttons in different patterns but nothing helped.

    iTunes was showing that your phone is in recovery mode and you need to restore to use it. I tried it by clicking on restore button also. But the same result everytime. I googled many posts tried force exit from recovery mode by tinyumbrella also. Using tinyumbrella exit recovery option, it rebooted and then iTunes automatically starts up ending me at the same stage everytime.

    Finally, I managed to get back my phone in perfect condition by doing things as below.

    NOTE – if you are doing a major update say from iOS 5 to iOS 6, iOS 6 to iOS 7, never use to update thru wifi. Always do major updates thru your pc only. Minor updates ( say 7.0.3 from 7.0 ) is ok thru wifi.

    1. NEVER LEAVE SIM CARD IN THE PHONE WHILE RESTORING.
    2. ALWAYS USE ORIGINAL DATA CABLE TO RESTORE.
    3. CONNECT YOUR PHONE TO THE MAIN USB AND NOT THE EXTRA USB PORTS.
    4. Go to trusted websites like redmondipe, iclarified, etc locate your iOS firmware and download it to your PC.
    5. Now open iTunes. When it says to resotre your phone, press SHIFT(on your keyboard) + click on restore .
    6.. Locate your iOS file and let it do the rest.

    Best of luck guys!!

    This is the way I tried to get iPhone out of recovery mode:

    Press down the Home and Power buttons on your iPhone until it shuts off.
    Connect it to your computer with the USB cable.
    Press and hold down the Home button.
    Hold it down until iTunes says your device is entering recovery mode.
    Now you should be able to Restore using iTunes.

    My iPod went into recovery mode and i am wondering if there is a program or some way to get into safe mode without restoring it. I think that this will be able to fix it.I know exactly why my iPod is not booting up, and that is because , in ifile, i tried to change the gif image used as for the startup bootlogo that I had toggled. The logo was the android logo, i tried to change one of the images that ran with the gif to an image to me and it seemed to put my iPod into recovery mode. I need a way to get into my device and delete the tweak that is installed. do you know if there is a program out there, or some way?

  • chichi

    this is awesome thanx!!!!

  • Sam

    I went to download TinyUmbrella and it is only a program that creates zip files. Is this a joke? Where can I actually download TinyUmbrella? I’d really like to get my iphone out of recovery mode.

  • hello

    does it restore the IPhone?
