iphone in DFU mode, no internet connection. Possible to restore?
I think my last post was perhaps a bit too convoluted, so I'm going to ask the main question here, in the hope that I can figure out the rest of it myself.
The only machine that I have or have access to that can run itunes is physically broken and cannot be connected to the internet.
I need to restore my iphone 3G in DFU mode, and I have the ispw file on the computer.
When I connect my phone in DFU mode, I get an error message telling me that itunes couldn't connect to the server because it is not connected to the internet.
When I close the message, my iphone is not showing up in itunes, so I can't access it to restore it.
Is there any way to get itunes to recognize an iphone in DFU mode without first contacting the server?
