My wife's iPhone 5 is now stuck in recovery after she tried to do a IOS8 update over the air. Of course she has no backup or anything like that, so this was an all or nothing upgrade. She got to the "verifying install" and then it rebooted and put her in recovery mode. I called apple support and their only suggestion was a complete restore and losing all her data. Any suggestions on recovering data or possibly getting out of recovery mode?
By recovery mode I mean there is an iTunes logo with a charger and an up arrow pointing to the iTunes logo. I'm assuming this mean plug your device into iTunes.
