    Hold the power and the home button until the phone turns off keep holding both don't let go. Hold for 15 seconds let off of power and keep ahold of the home button. Do this while plugged in and you will see your computer recognize your phone. Keep doing this until it goes into dfu mode u will have a black screen when it's in dfu

    I have worked on several phones that were hard to get them into dfu.

    Keep trying it will eventually work.

    Turn the phone completely off. Next connect your USB cable to your computer only!!!!! Then this is key hold the home key down while the phone is still off before you connect it your device to the cable. Keep the home key down until you see your device go into DFU mode.
