    Well, ive come across a strange discovery. it seems that the only way iTunes will complete the iOS 4 update for any device is if i open RecBoot and Click enter Recovery. So, for those who have bricked devices because it wont update to iOS 4 [ freezing at the last minute ], download RecBoot and open it and click Enter Recovery. the iTunes will finish the update. i have no idea why its needed... but hey, at least you can update now.

    Are you sure its going to work?? Cuz I was trying to upgrade from 3.1.3 to 4.0 and it got stuck for hours, I finally forced to downgrade to 3.1.2 because Apple won't sign off on 3.1.3 anymore.

    the heck! i was able to get into recovery mode indeed. i was skeptical about this app that i just went ahead and ran it...

    problem now is got stuck in recovery mode! and when i try to click on exit recovery mode... i get an error...

    ended up restoring device right now..
