I got stung by an iOS update on my iPhone 3GS – again. This time I was updating from iOS 5.01 to 5.1 and all seemed to progress OK right up to the point where the iPhone rebooted. At this point, the phone would just show the Apple logo for about a minute followed by a progress bar that would not budge.
In the end I had to do a Restore (using the button on the Device page in iTunes) followed by a restore of settings from a backup, followed by a resyncing of all my apps/music/books – all of which took several hours.
Not very “resolutionary”, more “irritationary”.
