    Default 3GS stuck in DFU Mode - HELP!!!!!!!!!
    My 3GS jailbroken via blackra1n just turned off yesterday and accidently went into DFU mode and I havent been able to get it out of the DFU mode. I have tried many things (holding down the power and home button for 10 seconds) but it just is not starting anymore. Can someone please help??? How can I start my iPhone & get it out of the DFU Mode???

    I dont want to restore since its going to upgrade and I will loose my unlock.

    Please help!!! I am stuck

    Thanks!

    Phones don't just do into DFU mode by themselves. If you're on the new bootrom and your phone got powered off you might be in recovery mode (iTunes logo). If this is the case just re-run blackrain to boot the phone. Did you save you 3.1.2 SHSH files? If so then there's no problem restoring to 3.1.2 if you change your host file to point to saurik.

    I accidently put my 3GS in DFU Mode and I saw a popup on my computer. I am not in recovery mode - no apple logo, no itunes logo - its not powering up AT ALL. Once it does power up then I should be fine via running blackra1n.

    Does anyone know how to get it out of DFU MODE?? I saw some others are experiencing the same issue. Any thoughts on this will be appreciated as I have a bricked iphone right now!!!!

    Hold power and home for 10 seconds.. then release both and hit the power button. By the way it's not possibly to /accidentally/ put your phone in DFU mode considering it must be timed just right and done deliberately.

    I have tried this combo multiple times but its not turning on or getting out of the DFU mode. I realize I did this but didnt intend on putting it in DFU Mode as all I was trying to do was to get my iPHone to power up after it had shutdown randomly.
    Any other combos?

    BUMP - Can Anyone help!?

    Perhaps you should plug it into the computer then try any of the above again and see if your computer is picking up the device or not. If your computer makes no indication of picking up the device, it is not in DFU mode. As far as my experience went, thats what I know.
