These are instructions on how to put your iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus into DFU mode. You may need to use DFU mode if you're having trouble restoring your iPhone using recovery mode. When placing your iPhone into DFU Mode it does not load the OS before attempting the restore.



Step One
Connect the iPhone to your computer using a USB cable.

Release just the Sleep/Wake button and continue pressing the Volume Down button until iTunes pops up with a message telling you that it’s detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

The iPhone’s screen will remain black. If you see an iTunes logo displayed you are in recovery mode not DFU mode. Give it a try again and make sure you pay close attention to the timing.

Then using iFaith, get your SHSH blobs, next you'll stitch them into a custom ipsw using sn0wbreeze. Finally get your device into a pwnd dfu mode and you're ready to restore and jailbreak! Yay, wasn't that easy?

Like the good old redsn0w times, took a bit more than just plugging the iPhone to the PC.
Great!
