[1.1.3][1.1.1/1.0.2 OTB][Problems][how to get out of DFU mode/restore iTunes to 7.5
i have successfully unlocked 1.1.3 with my 1.1.1 OTB as well as my friends 1.0.2 OTB phone
But we both have the same problem.
Last night i was playing around with Customize and the phone froze, so i hold power and home button to force restart and it got me into DFU mode with the iTunes logo and cable screen...
According to iClarified, i can get out of this mode using independence playing around with the phone by plugging in and out the cable/restarting the phone/the home-power for 10secs--->let go of the power for another 15sec trick
which worked fine, except i was wondering is there a better/exact way of doing so kaz it usually takes me 10-15mins to get it out that stupid DFU mode..
or is there a way to do it without the cable and independence? I was on the streets when my phone froze and i tried so many times and couldn't get it out of DFU mode...my phone wasn't working till i get home, which was very troublesome...
My friend had a similar problem except the phone didn't froze before he got into the DFU mode...according to him, he just put the (working) phone in his pocket, the next thing he knows the phone went into DFU mode for no apparent reason...
and what made his case worst was he was using iTunes 7.6(mind you, we're both using Mac) and independence doesn't support iTunes 7.6...so he tried restoring to iTunes 7.5.
During the process of installing iTunes 7.5 there's an error message saying that the iTunes installer detected a newer version of the iTunes Library. So again he tried deleteing the whole iTunes folder in the Music folder as well as Itunes.app in the Application folder. Then iTunes 7.5 installer went well. But independeance complains with another error message, which i wasn't that surprise..
Apparently if you have iTunes 7.6 and you wanted to downgrade back to iTunes 7.5, removing the Itunes.app file in the Applications folder and the iTunes foler in the Music folder, it is not sufficient to have the iTunes 7.5 to work properly with the iPhone. I tried this with my 1.1.1 working unlocked phone before on a mac and iTunes did not recognize my phone if itunes was downgraded from 7.6 to 7.5
so i'm guessing there is something wrong there that causes my friend's independance to complain with another error message because of the downgrading iTunes from 7.6 to 7.5..
so to sum up:
1. On a mac, is there a way to downgrade iTunes 7.6 to 7.5 that can communicate with the iPhone properly?
2. On a mac, Is there a better way to get out of that stupid DFU mode without connecting to a computer? if not, is there a better/exact way to get it out of DFU mode faster than playing around with it for 10-15mins? (even a windows method would help)
(If there's a windows method, would there be problem using iTunes 7.6? or is there a problem downgrading itunes 7.6 to 7.5?)
thanks in advance.
P.S. I hope i'm not asking a real noob question as i did use the search forum tool and looked around for abt an hr and still can't find any solutions...i hope my search skills is not THAT bad....but anyhow, hope i didn't piss many people off and i apologize if i did...
I was wondering the same thing about DFU mode...
things I learned:
1. Independence/iBrickr can't (usually) get a phone out of DFU mode
2. when the phone is in DFU mode, plug it into your computer, start independence, and watch the status at the bottom of the window while you press and hold the power button until independence says "iphone disconnected" at the bottom. Exit independence, release the power button, press it again to turn the phone back on. Now the phone should be in "recovery mode." Start up independence, and within 5 or so seconds independence will detect the phone in recovery mode and boot it out of it.
Hope this helps!
