Thread: pulling 3GS out of DFU mode

  1. #1
    Default pulling 3GS out of DFU mode
    hey guys

    i mistakenly put my 32gb 3gs running 3.0 into DFU and i cant seem to pull it out

    i dock it with itunes and tryed a restore but now im getting the new "upgrade to 3.1" message

    im sure the phone is fine if i could just pull it out of DFU

    does anyone know how to get a 3gs out of DFU?

    edit: got it, press and hold power and home for 15 seconds then press and hold power for 2 seconds

    Is it still in DFU mode at black screen? I did the same thing yesterday. I have 32gb 3gs and i put mine in dfu mode. I got out of it by just holding home and power button for 5 sec and then turning on the phone by hitting power button. Turned on no problem

    btw you don't need to hold power seperatly. just hold power+home until you see the apple

    not true. what reason would there be for that? you can erase whatever the hell you like, JB or not. I did it lots of times. only this time it failed.
    oh, and you can't restore on a 3GS right now, so now I can't use my phone ... sucks

    ok, so i guess we leave the phones bricked and wait it out a few days.. i got my old 3g so its not the end of the world.

    i dont wanna go put 3.1 on it only to find out later i cant unlock, i travel a lot overseas so i need this b1tch to work with other sims

    out of interest, i put it into DFU and ran redsnow to see if it would allow the phone to boot again, it started working and went all the way through but crashed on the last step
