Hi,

This evening I went to update both my iPad2 and iPhone4S to iOS5.1. I was able to downbload the updates; however, when it began the install process an error message came up saying tht it could not proceed. (Ishould have written it down). As a result, the screens on both devices have the iTunes icon and telling me to connect the device through the cord with iTunes.

The problem is it never was disconnect - when i disconnect and try again. iTunes no longer recognizes any device. I tried rebooting iTunes and then my pc and no change. I'm hoping I am not stuck forever and unable to use either devices.

Any suggestions!?? Thanks in advance!

It sounds like you might need to get into recovery mode. Before you run off and start playing, however, I have no experience with this. Your best bet would be to go and ask some questions in the Hacking section as the guys in there will almost certainly know what's going on.
