  • Have you rebooted both your may and your iPhone already?

Your iPhone is in Recovery Mode.

Unplug it from your Mac/PC and exit the recovery mode.

Exit the recovery mode via:

  1. Hold down the home and power button for about 15 seconds, this shuts off the iPhone
  2. Press the power button to boot the iPhone

Now it should be rebooting. Connect it again with you Mac/PC and fire up iTunes. Everything should work as it meant to be.

  • @VaibhavMishra, so your problem has been fixed? Would you be willing to post that as an answer here (link to the post, and summarize what steps you took to fix your problem)? Apr 20, 2013 at 23:29

The problem seems to be corruption(I am not sure what else to call it) of file named iTunesCDB in iTunes_Control/iTunes directory in iphone's file system, I used iFunBox to do the delete that file, after that everything seems to sync well with no issues,
