    Default [iPhone][Explanation] Difference between DFU and Recovery modes

    Hi,

    Wonder if someone can clear up what the actual difference between DFU and recovery mode means when restoring/upgrading firmware?

    I've always upgraded using recovery mode (16xx errors in DFU) - am I losing something by doing this?

    Thanks

    DFU is only needed to pawn the iphone .

    recovery mode can be used to upgrade or restore (custom firmware)

    Regards,
