"I tried to restore my iPhone today from my iTunes backup which I made before jail breaking. iTunes places the phone in the recovery mode and begins the process however it seems to hang on 'waiting for iPhone' the phone screen turns black. After about 15 minutes it reports that iPhone could not be restored with an iTunes error 4005. Can anyone point me in the right direction here?"
