Can anyone tell me why DFU mode wouldn't work in this case?

Well because the way DFU mode works is kinda like a stripped down version of regular mode. There's two partitions in the iphone, one is 16gb or 8gb or 32gb or 64gb or 128gb depending on what the phone is, and the second partition is like 200mb or something small. This second partion is the DFU partition that's only instructions is to boot into recovery mode using the same instruction set from the NVRam as the regular mode. This DFU partition doesn't have the support to display anything on the screen or access the GPS or WIFI or camera or anything like that. Just boot into recovery mode and be able to access the Primary partition to completely erase it and do a complete iOS restore. Now when it's booting up into recovery mode, it still accesses the NVram to call up some commands that this tweak alters and breaks the phone from booting up.
