    Default [FW 2.x](2G&3G) DFU and recovery mode (getting in and out of)

    Simple recovery/restore mode and DFU are two of the essential modes we need every now and then to archive firmware upgrades and downgrades. Sometimes we have to kick the iPhone out of these modes.

    Up to firmware 1.1.4 we had a great helper in iLiberty, for firmware 2.x on 2G and 3G iPhones there are easy manual steps. I have just put them together as a reference.

    Get the iPhone into simple restore/recovery mode. When in this mode on the iPhone the iTunes logo and the USB cable is shown (Apple default), or "Steve" (Standard Pwnage) or your custom recovery logo.
    1. Disconnect iPhone from your PC/Mac if not done already.
    2. Hold Power/Sleep until the red slider shows up, slide to shut the iPhone down. If this aint work hold Power/Sleep and Home until the iPhone shuts down. Put it aside.
    3. Start iTunes on your PC/Mac and make sure to have the latest version.
    4. On the iPhone press Home button and keep holding it while connecting the iPhone to your PC/Mac.
    5. iTunes will detect an iPhone in recovery mode, the iPhone shown the recovery logo.


    Get the iPhone into DFU mode. When in this mode the iPhone screen is black.
    1. Connect the iPhone and your Mac/PC
    2. Shut down iTunes
    3. Hold Power/Sleep until the red slider shows up, slide to shut the iPhone down. If this aint work hold Power/Sleep and Home until the iPhone shuts down.
    3. Hold Start/Sleep and Home for 10 seconds (I count like 100, 200, 300, ..)
    4. Let go of Start/Sleep but keep holding Home until...
    5. ... iTunes starts up and finds an iPhone in restore/recovery mode. The iPhone screen is black.


    Kick the iPhone out of simple restore/recovery mode and make it reboot.
    1. Connect iPhone and your PC/Mac, quit iTunes.
    2. Hold Start/Sleep and Home for 10 seconds (I always count 100, 200, 300,...)
    3. Let go of Home button but keep holding Start/Sleep until the Apple logo on the iPhone screen shows up.
    4. Let go of Start/Sleep, the iPhone will boot


    Kick the iPhone out of DFU mode and make it reboot. I always disconnect iPhone and Mac/PC but can be done even when connected.
    1. Hold Start/Sleep and Home until the Apple logo shows up on the iPhone screen. This may take up to 30-60 seconds.
    2. Let go of both buttons, the iPhone will reboot.

    hope this helps

    The "kick out of simple recovery mode" didn't work for me. I followed the instructions word for word but it just rebooted into recovery mode again. I had to restore the phone

    I once got it out of simple recovery mode by holding for 15 (instead of 10) seconds in step 2. this is what Quickpwn suggests when you present it with a phone in recovery mode. Too late for you to try, I guess...

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    I can repeat to get the iPhone out of simple recovery/restore when I put it into this mode before. Sometimes while trying several "healing methods" on the iPhone it is simply stuck and you have to restore. It is at least worth trying it ;-)

    My phone is in recovery mode and I can't get it out using the above method.

    I SSH-ed an app into my 2G 2.0.2 phone and run the cache deleting app, not realising that battery was low at that time. As a result, phone battery exhausted while deleting cache and phone is in recovery mode.

    Is there any program like iLiberty that can kick a 2.x iPhone out of DFU/recovery mode?

    Thanks in advance.

    The last chance I do see (besides restoring) is to give iRecovery a try. Check here:
    http://www.theiphonewiki.com/wiki/in...itle=IRecovery

    The programm allows to two-way communicate with the iPhone and should do the job.

    Thanks for the link; however after reading the page, I don't understand how to use the iRecovery. Is there any guide?

    I haven't found one so far. Our member ChronicProductions first mentioned the software here in the forum, maybe you can pm him and ask. He is a very nice guy, helpful but has a real life. So give him some time for the respond.

    when you build iRecovery from the sources in the chronic dev svn, use this:
    Code:
    ./iRecovery -s
    while your device is plugged in via USB. it should spawn a shell with the device.

    at this point, type
    Code:
    fsboot
    and wait a little bit.

    if it will not boot up for some reason, do this:
    Code:
    printenv
    and paste the result here so we can see what is up
