I went to update a few apps and I accidentally clicked "update all" on my apps and now almost all of them are updating.
(yes I know they all needed updated but lots of them were just bug fixes i wasn't worried about) Well that was an hour ago and none of them have even updated, it's stuck I guess?
Read through these instructions, power off your i Phone or i Pod Touch if you haven’t already, and then click the Next button.
Once you click the Next button you will need to execute the steps shown on-screen, which are: Step 6) When you successfully enter DFU mode your i Phone will be exploited with Lime Ra1n, and then Red Sn0w will begin restoring it to the i OS 6 firmware without updating your baseband.
You will also need to download the i OS 6 firmware for your i Phone 4 or i Phone 3GS, which can be found in the downloads section.
Wait for i Tunes to open and connect to your device.
Step 2: Click on device button to the left of the i Tunes Store button in the top right corner in i Tunes. If the i OS 8 update is available it will automatically download and update your device to i OS 8.
Just sit tight, and when the process is complete Red Sn0w will let you know the restore was successful.
Your i Phone 4 or i Phone 3GS should now be running the i OS 6 firmware with the same baseband you had on your previous firmware version.
