    I heard that the latest release of limera1n works on 3gs.

    The issue is that the computer is not recognizing the phone when it is supposedly in Dfu mode

    Reboot your 3gs and do it again. There is an instruction on the front page of this website, if you are not sure on how to do it.

    Make sure your not powering off instead of DFU.
    DFU mode instructions;
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down. (about 20 seconds)
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode

    I have the same problem that you are having. I have done everything to get it to work and it doesnt do anything.

    To be more specific, the problem that he is having is, Clicks on Limera1n probably does its thing, he presses Home and Power then releases Power and then the phone goes to DFU mode and screen goes black and Limera1n says, DFU mode please wait....... and then...... nothing happens. Program doesnt move and phone does nothing. Just a black screen! I have the same problem. I poste one also saying 3gs stuck in DFU mode and posted all my specs and no one has replied.
