Thread: My iPod won't get in DFU Mode
04-08-2011, 02:21 PM #1My iPod won't get in DFU Mode
I have tried 3 hours to get my iPod touch 3G 4.3.1 into DFU Mode with redsn0w 0.9.6rc9.
But it won't go in DFU Mode I did excactly what there is staying.
At step 2 the bootlogo needs to disapear. But it doesn't so it's starting up every time.
Someone who can help me? I tried almost everything I think.
Sorry for my bad English (if it is bad) I'n from Holland.

Try this: Open iTunes and plug the iPod in. Hold home and power buttons for exactly 10 seconds. Then let go of the power button and keep holding the home button until iTunes sees it in recovery (screen should be black on the iPad). Then close iTunes and press next in redsnow, redsnow should quickly detect it as being in DFU and skip the countdown.

Common problem with iPods. Just keep at it. Maybe try from being off too.
Or put it into regular recovery then try going into DFU from there.

I can go in Recovery mode. But how to get in DFU from there?

I have been forgotten how to get in recovery mode :s
Can you explain how??

You may find that you need to use a USB port that is directly on the motherboard and not one connected via a hub.

Are you trying to jailbreak your iPod?

What software are you jailbreaking with? Does it say "failed to jailbreak" or something like that?

Disable your firewall. Or login on to the administrator's account and jailbreak it from there.
04-09-2011, 02:38 PM #19
I'm on administrator's account. Firewall is disabled. And it just said something like this:
No device detected. You probably misunderstood the instructions.
Please consult Google or YouTube for instructions on how to enter DFU mode.

It has to be off. Go to stateofjailbreak.com to watch a video tutorial.
