Today, we’re going to tell you how you can exit recovery mode on your iOS device without restoring through iTunes. Earlier we discussed an app called ReiBoot to help you fix recovery mode stuck on your iPhone or iPad. Today, we’ll be discussing TinyUmbrella and Redsn0w, two apps that you can use to fix recovery mode stuck on your iOS device.
If you don’t use an app like Redsn0w or TinyUmbrella, you have to use iTunes to fix recovery mode stuck on your iPhone or iPad. There are a number of ways that can get your iOS device into recovery mode. If your device gets stuck on a blank screen or you enter recovery mode, there only way to exit recovery mode is to restore your device through iTunes.
Restoring through iTunes is not difficult at all but the problem is that you lose all your data when you restore your device through iTunes. This way you will exit recovery mode but iTunes will revert your device back to factory settings. This means you’ll lose all your photos, videos, apps, settings, anything at all if you haven’t already saved a backup in iTunes. In case you have a backup in iTunes, you can fix recovery mode stuck on your devices through iTunes and then restore your device using the backup.
If you haven’t saved a backup, you can either fix recovery mode stuck on your device through iTunes and lose all your data or use TinyUmbrella/Redsn0w to exit recovery mode.
