I tried updating to the new software on my phone and it never went through. Tonight I tried updating, failed. When going to use my phone, it came up as in Recovery Mode. It told me to Restore, which I tried three times so far. Still... NO luck.
- switching USB ports
- switching charging cords (both Apple)
- restarting my computer
- restarting my iPhone 5
- made sure everything was updated and backed up before
