    Does your iPhone still turn on and functioning with apps etc. And just won't show up in iTunes?

    Well the thing is your software unlocked. This means if you use DFU mode to restore your firmware (which if iTunes isn't detecting it, this will need to be done). It'll probably upgrade your baseband. I'm not sure, but if it does you WON'T be able to change the baseband back. Therefore rendering your phone useless (since you won't be able to make calls).

    I would recommend doing what was said in post 2 before going into dfu mode and restoring, as this will mean you need to re unlock your phone to use your sim. And all your data will be gone unless you have it backed up

    The newest gevey sim can unlock 4.3.5 and baseband 4.10.01 on most phones (doesn't always work on every phOne unfortunately)

    if you just want itunes for putting music on your iphone you could also use an application for your computer (windows?) called ifunbox and this can be used to backup apps also

    What model phone is it? When you hit update you likely updated your baseband to a baseband that is not unlockable with a software unlock. If you have a 3G/3Gs you can use Redsn0w to update your baseband to 06.15.00 which is unlockable but if you have an iPhone4 your only option will be to buy a Gevey Ultra SIM

    you can just go into app store on your iphone and then click bottom right corner to update your apps
    iTunes Alternative for iPod iPhone and iPad: A look at 5 Free Tools
    try this site for music management otherwise ifunbox usually will show your phone

    updating the apps wont send you into recovery mode only if you try update the phone via itunes it will put you in recovery loop mode [=

    there are 2 ways that you can delete apps from your iPhone.
    1.) tap hold on any app on your home screen until they all (apps) start wiggling, then you will see a red minus (-) sign on top left of each apps. Tap on that red minus sign to delete the app you do not want.
    2.) connect your iPhone to your computer and open up iTunes, click on your iPhone icon in left panel of iTunes then click on "apps" tab. There you can uncheck any app you do not want and then sync it.

    just hold down on the icon till the icons start wriggling then click the little x or - up the top left of the icon
    just update your itunes and that should sort out the driver problem
