    DFU is for restoring for "old" firmware.
    Ok,i explain IF you are running version 1.1.3(04.04.05_13G baseband) THEN without DFU you will be able to RESTORE ONLY TO 1.1.4 if you want to restotre to 1.1.3 then you have to downgrade your baseband to 04.03_13G or get your phone into DFU mode,so you will be ABLE to restore..

    I think you have a typo here:

    - 1.1.3(04.04.05_13G baseband) - there is no such thing. I think you meant 1.1.3 (04.03.13_G)

    What do you mean by "restoring "old" firmware" ???

    - do you mean if I have 1.1.5 I cannot DFU restore ? - I have to disagree.
    If I have a 1.1.4 phone and if I do a DFU restore using a "new" firmware, it will write the new OS fw + BB fw.

    - Regardless of fw versions, DFU restore only put the OS firmware on and it will not downgrade your baseband firmware.
    DFU restore will upgrade to new baseband firmware if the exsiting on on the phone is older.
