I am having a bit of a painful situation here.. I offered to update a iphone for a friend.

We just had reinstalled his computer, so we had no prior backups in iTunes. However, when the update process to iOS 6 started, iTunes made a backup. At least, that's what it said it was doing.

When the restore was done, iTunes returned an error (I believe 1611, but I'm not sure)

However in the settings I see no backups, if I proceed manually to the iTunes backup folder there isn't anything either...

Where did iTunes save this backup? Or does anyone have a solution to get the iPhone working again (with preservation of data)

What is the state of the phone? Does it start but is empty? – JoshRagem Oct 30 '12 at 18:46
