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.
power off your phone
press home + power for like 10secs (it should not come on)
release power but keep home pressed for more 10secs
check on iTunes if it is in DFU (aka restore mode)
Hey bro, what you gotta do:
1: Have the iPhone in the dock
2: now hold down both the home button and sleep/wake button now count to 20 seconds
3: after 10 seconds release the sleep/wake button
4:keep holding down that home button
5: iTunes will launch and then say that there is a phone in recover mode, BUT the phone in your dock will look like its turned off
this is the special mode called DFU
if you have ibrickr it is waay easier..
plug phone into your pc
look in the ibrickr folder for iphoneinterface.exe
start this and type:
this should do the trick!
there is a more detailed explination (pics ) on iFoneguide.com
Oh, that's what it is! I was looking for something on the phone screen, like the yellow triangle or the iTunes symbol with the plug as in earlier versions. I didn't have it connected to iTunes, so I never noticed I may have had it in DFU mode already. Works fine now, thanks!
