Thread: DFU Mode No Buttons
01-23-2012, 05:57 PM #1DFU Mode No Buttons
Hey guys I have an iphone 4, running 5.0.1.. The power button doesn't work, it won't push down, its just super stiff won't budge at all. I want to jailbreak my iphone, but I need to get into DFU mode, how can I get into DFU mode via Windows or Mac, I know there use to be programs like Tiny Umbrella, which I tried on my Mac and it didn't enter it into DFU mode. I tried another program as well, which made my phone go into recovery mode with the itunes logo, but it wasn't enough to jailbreak.

1)Download any ipsw.
2)Open the IPSW as a zip folder and browse to /firmware/all_Flash/all_flash.xxxxx.production/
4)Copy applelogo.********.img3 to temporary directory.
5)Rename the copy of applelogo.********.img3 to LLB.*****.RELEASE.img3. (If you forget the name of the LLB file, you can find it again in the file named manifest.)
Copy the renamed applelogo file back to the all_flash.xxxxx.production directory.
6)Rename the zip.
7)Restore the file using iTunes. (If every thing goes well, you should receive an error 31 from iTunes.)
Use a custom firmware to restore.

Okay so I can use 5.0.1 firmware to do this? Also is this going to put my phone into dfu mode? I need to go into dfu mode to jailbreak, so I do that method then use redsn0w? Thanks for the reply

Any ipsw should work .
Follow what I said to Put it in dfu.
Use teh latest sn0wbreeze to mAke cfw.
Put phone in pwned dfu.
Restore using that cfw.
Just follow this without thinking. Forget redsn0w.

Uhhh.. Heard of YouTube?
Sn0wbreeze is pretty self explanatory. There is not much to explain :-)
Pwned dfu u can use redsn0w or sn0wbreeze . Follow on screen.
By restoring cfw I mean custom firmware. Sn0wbreeze will give u another ipsw which is already jbed. Use it to restore from iTunes . Understood?!? :-)

Hi there. The process of making a custom ipsw is pretty easy.
For instance you could also use Redsn0w (aside from Snowbreeze).
For Redsn0w 0.9.10b4 you go to extras - create custom ipsw - select the 5.0.1 ipsw that you downloaded and the program will make it into a custom ipsw with the name of NO_BB5.0.1 etc etc.
I do not use snowbreeze but it is a similarly easy process.
And once you have the custom ipsw, you open itunes and hook up your phone to it, then you hold down the SHIFT button on your keyboard (for windows, or ALT button for MAC), and click on RESTORE button in itunes, and a window will open, and you select the NO_BB ipsw file that was created, and click OPEN.
And the restore process with the custom ipsw will start.

Edit: yes and can also put it in pwned dfu from redsn0w-extras or from snowbreeze (whichever of the two you use).

First rename it to zip
Edit the files inside
Rename it back to ipsw.
First do this :
Make a cfw using Latest sn0wbreeze.
Keep that cfw away
Now do what I said in previous posts to get to dfu.
Then once u r in dfu use redsn0w to enter pwned dfu.
Now open iTunes and shift restore using the cfw u made.

If you happy to hex edit (if you used to do this for games )
Make a copy of a fresh IPSW file.
Open the IPSW as a zip folder and browse to /firmware/all_Flash/all_flash.xxxxx.production/
Extract LLB.*****.RELEASE.img3 and open it in a hex editor.
Change some random bit or bits, it doesn't matter which or what you write.
Add the edited file back to the zip, rename zip to ipsw and restore it to your device using iTunes.
The restore will error out and your device will be in DFU Mode.
Also, in case your NOT a windows user & so therefore cannot use sn0wbreeze, you can also use Pwnagetool on a mac as sn0wbreeze is just a ported version of that
YouTube won't tell you all that though lol
So really, what you should have is three ipsw's,
1- Your "virgin" ipsw (downloaded & untouched)
2- a copy of the virgin ipsw (modified so you can dfu without the use of a power button).
Sorry lol, 3- your CFW (Custom FirmWare) that you'll have created using redsn0w/sn0wbreeze/Pwnagetool.
You'll use number 1 to create numbers 2 & 3, number 2 JUST to make the phone enter DFU, & number 3 to jailbreak. If you do have issues, let me know & I'll look about number 2 for you.
