Apple iphone 1.1.4 update error ""Slide for Emergency".
Updating your iphone to Release 1.1.4 may lock your phone in "recovery" mode. My iphone was updated with Rel. 1.1.4, finished updating rebooted and stuck with the message "Slide for Emergency" in several languages. There is nothing you can do at this point since everything is disabled. Calling to Apple support revealed that they have no idea on how to help you in this situation, rebooting your phone is pointless at this time.
Here are the proven remedies that I compiled:
1. Switch your USB ports
2. Unistall iTunes and clean Windows registry using regedit.exe of all Apple and iTunes enties
3. Connect your iphone to a different PC (or MAC) with iTunes that will resynch and restart you iphone.
If everything fails
4. Download ZIPphone utilities from www.ziphone.org for your Release. DO NOT select to "unlock" your phone, simply go to "Advanced Features" tab and click on "Normal Mode" button. That action will exit your phone from the "recovery mode".
Good luck and remember just like with the database upgrades – always have backup.
