Trouble getting into restore mode / DFU mode
searched the forum but couldn't find an answer....
I have an OTB 1.1.1 phone updated to 1.1.2 with iTunes (Step 2 here: http://www.hacktheiphone.com/112/iph...nlock_mac.html )
For that step, I got it into DFU mode using iNdependence.
Now, I need to get into restore/DFU mode again for step 3, but I can't seem to get it there. It says:
Do this by pressing and holding the Home button, and the Sleep/Wake button. As soon as the screen goes black, let go of the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button.
Did that and been holding the home button until my thumb was blue. Several times. Nothing happened. I've read other suggestions involving a stopwatch.
What is the most reliable way to kick the phone into DFU mode? Can this be done from the computer, like iNdependence used to do it? Unfortunately, iNdependence doesn't work with 1.1.2 phones. BTW, I'm on a Mac.
