    So in windows - if you don't see the little "DFU Mode" notice in the lower right corner by the clock - then does that mean you are not in DFU mode? I swear i'm pulling my hair out doing this!! After doing the whole button thing for 20 seconds and hearing the windows sound - I get the totally black screen and itunes starts up and then has a warning message saying that it has discovered a phone in restore mode. The phone however is still showing a black screen - nothing else.

    So what I would like to know is the following:

    1. Must the PC show the "DFU Mode" balloon in the bottom right corner where the time is?

    2. Everyone says that itunes shows an alert (as indicated in that youtube video everyone is saying to look at) - well if you are successful in DFU mode - what exactly is the wording on that alert in itunes? Does it say that itunes has discovered a phone in DFU mode?

    Removing the "custom-" from the front of the homemade firmware file means I go from error (6) to error 1604.

    Should the phone be on 2.x firmware before doing all this? It is currently on 1.1.4 but I dont want to upgrade to 2.0 as then I will be totally locked out and downgrading means re-installing itunes etc.

    I think a lot of the videos on youtube actually show the recovery mode and not DFU mode because I have followed it so well and even still no success. If you look at a lot of the videos - most people are doing variations - Some have itunes on, some don't, others have the phone switched on from the start, others don't. So if people can even vary the method slightly, it really can't be this difficult can it?!

    Hi Dimsum!
    I have been going into DFU mode so many times, here is how it always works for me on Windows and Mac:

    1. make sure you have the latest version of iTunes on your computer
    2. Connect iPhone and your PC
    3. Shut down the iPhone (red slider)
    4. Quit iTunes if running
    5. Hold start/sleep and Home for exactly 10 seconds
    6. Let go of start/sleep but keep holding home
    7. Keep holding home for >= 10 seconds - keep holding UNTIL iTunes starts up automatically.
    8. iTunes will pop up a window telling you it found an iphone in Recovery/restore mode.
    9. Let go of home
    10. Click OK in the window (step 8)
    11. Shift-restore to your custom firmware.

    DFU mode can be identified as the iPhone screen is OFF even though iTunes can detect it.

    iTunes wont tell you to be in DFU mode, will tell you it is in recovery mode. To be exact iTunes does display the same dialog when you are in simple restore/recovery mode (with the USB cable and iTunes Logo or custom restore logo)

    Forget about the YouTube Videos - the above will work.

    If iTunes detects a phone in restore mode, and your screen is black -- chances are you are in DFU.

    Thanks for that - I followed it exactly and it was fine. So all this time I have been getting the phone in DFU mode if a black screen and a recovery msg in itunes is what to go by.

    After extracting the firmware and doing its thing - my issue is that I either end up with error (6) or 1601/1604.

    Would it be better to say update to 2.0.2 via itunes officially which would work and then try and do a restore using the custom firmware? My only worry with updating to 2.0.2 directly is that I will be totally locked out and if the custom firmware fails on this then that means to use the phone i will have to downgrade it to 1.1.4 and downgrading also requires installing an older version of iTunes which is a hassle. I wonder if people who have had the same error messages as me have officially updated to 2.x and then done a custom restore with 2.x?

    Also once you try the DFU mode once - the phone is always in recovery mode. Is there anyway to kick it out of recovery mode? I tried it with iLiberty+ and ZiPhone and none of them could kick it out.

    To get out of DFU mode (black screen). Just hold start/sleep and home for 30-60 seconds and the iPhone will boot.

    What I did on two of my test iPhones that had never been pwnaged before and were at FW 1.1.4. I did a DFU restore to firmware 2.0.1 (that time, same for 2.0.2) with itunes ending with a locked iPhone. Then I used Winpwn (2.0.0.4) to create my custom firmware 2.0.1, ipwnd iTunes and then DFu retsored to the custom firmware. I never ran into problems doing so.

    OMG IT WORKED!!!!!

    Gosh for weeks I have been pulling my hair out - now finally I can have 2.0.2 on my 2G iPhone! Okay so this is what worked for me and I will also mention what I changed from my previous attempt.

    My iPhone is an 8GB with 1.1.4 unlocked using iLiberty. I had previously tried to pwn the phone with winpwn 2.0.0.4 and it was unsuccessful even after 30+ attempts.

    When I was thinking about why it kept failing and why I kept getting error (6) and errors 1601/1604, I just assumed that I was not getting the phone into DFU mode. But infact I was, the problem was that the custom firmware made by winpwn was the issue. I knew I could not have been doing something that wrong considering so many people have all slightly varied how we get into DFU mode - so really - it can't be that difficult to do.

    I noticed a lot of people have 2G iPhones at 1.1.4 and want to jump to 2.x. Most of us were just trying to DFU restore our phones from FW 1.1.4 to 2.x (winpwnd). So with all these failures I thought perhaps it might be better to just upgrade the FW within iTunes to 2.0.2 first. Of course going from 1.1.4 to 2.0.2 meant that I would be locking myself out of the phone completely. So if I did not successfully pwn the phone, my only option would be to downgrade iTunes to 7.5 so that I could put 1.1.4 back on the phone.

    I had not heard of anyone upgrading their 1.1.4 phones to 2.x first and then pwning with 2.x so I put the question out there and thankfully volkspost said he actually did that very thing on two of his phones. It just seems more likely that if you have the official 2.x firmware on the phone first and then pwn with a custom 2.x firmware - you will have a better success rate.


    So what I did was the following:

    01. Shut down the phone.
    02. Shut down iTunes.
    03. Connect the phone via the USB cable.
    04. Hold Home & Sleep/Power button for 10 seconds.
    05. Release the Sleep/Power button and continue holding Home for another 10 seconds.
    06. Itunes will start and show a message and your PC will beep.
    07. the screen on the phone is black - you are in DFU mode.
    08. Shift + restore and select the OFFICIAL apple 2.0.2 firmware
    09. After many minutes, your phone is successfully updated to FW2.0.2
    10. Phone is now locked with only access to the emergency screen.

    11. Start winpwn 2.5.
    12. Expert: ON.
    13. Yes to everything eg. activate/unlock/youtube activate/bootneuter removal/resize partition/cedia/installer 4. No to custom logo/wipe data.
    14. Set resize partition to 800MB.
    15. Save custom firmware.
    16. DO NOT remove "Custom-" prefix from the front of the firmware file.

    16. The built in DFU mode instructions kick in - follow them.
    17. iTunes will be pwned.
    18. Shift + Restore in iTunes and select the custom firmware.
    19. Enjoy your pwned 2.0.2 phone.


    A few things:
    1. The message in itunes after it starts (step 6) says that it has discovered a phone in Recovery mode - this is the right message. There is no message that says DFU mode instead even when you are in DFU mode.

    2. If your PC does not show the "DFU mode" balloon in the bottom right corner - don't worry, you will still be in DFU mode if you have followed the steps correctly.

    3. Updating your 1.1.4 phone to 2.x officially within iTunes WILL lock the phone. You will only have access to the emergency call screen. The only way to downgrade from this is to re-install iTunes 7.5 and then officially downgrade to FW1.1.4.

    4. I believer that updating first to firmware 2.x officially is the best way to go about all this. I had so many errors - I often got error (6) and 1601/1604. After I had updated - I successfully pwned the phone with the custom 2.0.2 FW over the official 2.0.2 FW.

    Thanks to volkspost for all his help on this!

    Default DFU mode

    Hi, I am new and have search after a solution but did not find it.
    I use Win Vista 32, one Iphone 1st generation unlocked with PWD software. 2 days ago it blocked again and I can't put it in DFU mode.
    I tried to restore it with Itunes but got error 6. It is not my 1st Iphone and I have already unlocked a lot but this time I can't help.
    I tried everything. I know how to put it in DFU manually but failed.
    I used different computers, different usb....but no success.
    Could you help please?
    Thanks a lot
