Error -26 when flashing

Postby SpicyBoss2000 » 03 Mar 2018 22:25

Hey there,
I've been trying to get my iPhone 6s out of recovery mode but it's stuck, so I tried to use easy flash using firmware 11.2.6 but it comes up with "ERROR: Unable to restore iDevice(-26)" every time. What does this mean and what can I do to fix it?

Hello, you could try to enter DFU mode and flash again, hope it helps.

Here's what to check:

If iTunes is already open, quit and reopen it.

Make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes.

Check for issues with third-party security software.

Make sure that your USB cable, computer, and network are reliable. Then try twice more to restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.

If you still see the error message, you can check for outdated or modified software or contact Apple Support.

Hi, maybe you can try iCloud to remotely restore your iPhone or update iTunes on your computer. If you worry about losing data with iCloud, you can consider using a technical repairing tool like Joyoshare UltFix to fix it. A professional program can cause no data loss. If these methods fail to work, please ask Apple for help!
