    Make sure you have itunes 8 installed

    Put your phone in dfu mode, which is hold down the power button and the home button until your phone shuts off. When your phone shuts off remover your finger from the power button, but leave your finger on the home button for at least 10 more seconds or until your itunes finds your phone in dfu mode. When itunes says your phone is in dfu mode, hold shify key down, and click restore , now find your custom firmware and load it. Thats it. I hope that helps

    hmm, ok here is a easy way to get it into dfu mode, download zip phone, you are just going to use that to get it into dfu mode. when you download it and install it and run it. Just click advance settings and click put in dfu mode

    i used winpwn with an older firmware like 2.0.1 and did all the normal step, build the custom firmware and went thru all the steps, now winpwn will ask u to go into dfu mod and it will show u how.Do it but get ready ( open task manager ) when ur phone restarts you will see a white screen, when u see that screen kill the process winpwn.exe (end task). Now ur done , just open itunes and it will detect ur phone in dfu mode, just do **** click restore with ur costum built ispw and it should work. thats what i did and it worked flawlessly
