    You're 100% sure you're in DFU mode?

    You can always take it to Apple, as well. They may be feeling good and decide to give you a replacement.

    Google it and try it again doing EXACTLY as whatever you find says. A notification should pop up if you're running Windows that says Apple device-DFU connected (or something of the like) when you get it.

    if ur in dfu mode u should get a wight screen for like 2 or 3 sec befor the apple logo first get it to dfu mode, if i tunes gives an error then use an older one,which may not fix the pplm too but it will fix the boot then u go back to the new itunes to restore

    if ur stock in recovery mode then theres another way to get to dfu
    its the same as qpown askes u to do
    home 5sec
    power+home 15 sec
    home till wight screen
    if that didnt work PM me im online i will help u

    DFU Restore Mode:

    1. Power phone OFF. 2. Hold power + home for 10 seconds. 3. Let go of power and continue to hold home until iTunes finds the phone.

    Last time I had an error 23 no matter what I couldn't get rid of it. DFU... Recovery... nothing... it's a brick.

    I am having this same issue on my 2G 8GB model. I posted another topic recently about this, outlining the same process you have gone through. Looking for help as well!!! Is it really a brick?

    I was able to fix error 23 by deleting the backups on my laptop and restoring w/o an existing backup. The problem was one of the backups was corrupted. You can find the backups under the Preferences -> Devices tab in iTunes. But I got error 1011, that is not to bad.
