Same issue here, stuck in recovery mode after a failed update. It won't boot in normal boot and Dr Fone keeps telling me to reboot into normal mode to follow the 3 steps. I managed to get the phone into dfu mode but Dr Fone still won't recognize it without those steps which include booting in normal mode, which i obviously can't. Any help would be ver much appreciated. Thank you!
