I put my ipod in DFU mode but a window says that my network is not working. What do i do?
BKSeacrist - November 28, 2013 at 9:20pm
We completed the DFU mode instructions outlined above... everything worked great however, it appears that the iphone's original account holder's information (i.e. password) is still attached to an iCloud. Can someone please help?

Works perfectly, glad I found this article quickly via Google. I had a beta that expired, and no developer account. This way I could recover.

as soon as your screen goes black from holding the home and sleep button. let go of the sleep button and continue to hold the home button. works every time!!

Hi there, can you help me at all. My trouble is the iphone 4s is not being recognized in itunes. I've uninstalled itunes, re installed, changed cords and usb drives, tried recovery mode reset and i've just tried this DFU reset but it's still not coming up in itunes. I just want to restore the phone as I forgot my password in the restrictions therefore can't restore it via settings ;(

i can not get my phone into DFU mode on my 4S. I'm trying to downgrade back IOS6.. please help.. how can i get my phone in DFU mode
Kenny - June 28, 2013 at 4:41pm
You do not have to put it into DFU mode to restore back to iOS 6.1.4 Hold down "option" and choose restore and select the software you want to. If you're on windows Im sure you hold down "shift" then choose restore and then select the software.

my power button doesnt work . how do i get my cell into FDU mode ? :-s
unknown.singer - June 12, 2013 at 11:05am
DFU IPSW in REDSN0W saved my life. My Powerbutton wasn't working and i clicked SHIFT+RESTORE after which it was stucked on the welcome screen of IOS 7 saying this iphone isn't associated with the developer's edition phone. then from DFU IPSW option .. i packed the IOS 7 IPSW. for DFU . then when it went into DFU . i installed 6.1.4 back on my Iphone 5. again trying to do 7.0 via " SHIFT+CHECK FOR UPDATES ". finally let me install the IOS 7. Lovely .. Awesome it is. ... I Guess Apple should introduce some themes and an option to restart the cell phone.

-Download TinyUmbrella -Connect your iDevice to your computer -Open up TinyUmbrella -Click the device under "Connected Devices" (or "Recent Devices" if you don't have your device connected) -Just click Exit Recovery to kick it out of recovery mode.
