Restore it and try limera1n?
Is the screen completely black when you are in DFU?

Are you putting it in DFU before it asks you to do it, or when it asks you to do it?
I'd say use limera1n if GP keeps failing to recognize it in DFU.

Hm. So when you go into DFU, in iTunes does it pick up your device and tell you to restore? B/c if iTunes recognizes it in DFU, then it isn't your phone. I'd like to know that, if you don't mind testing it out. I know you said you did it to check the bootrom, but I think iTunes is a surefire way to tell if it really is going into DFU.
It's not in recovery mode right? Just wanna make sure.

"You're holding it wrong" when putting it in dfu mode. I haven't had an issue with limera1n on any of the 10 devices I have used it on. It is either user error or usb port issues.

How do you mean test it in itunes?
And thx for the reply.
Either I've lost my touch or the 3GS has got something different thats throwing it off.
And BTW this is a 3GS (4.1/old baseband) that's never been JB before.
Thx for the reply.

Plug phone into computer, load iTunes, iTunes will then indicate the phones current status as stated above.

iTunes "detects a phone in recovery mode"

If you want it easy go get Recboot which will push it into or out of DFU/Recovery Mode or go get TinyUmbrella
Both programs are free
Please thank me on site if this works or keep talking
