    Also, no sim card I put in will get reception/make calls etc, even after I enter the password for the sim... any help?
    I have a feeling this recovery mode is all due to your replacement of Home button. It is possible this Home button together with the flex cable is faulty.

How do i put the phone in DFU with the recovery loop? Please help!
    Like Annie said, restore to custom firmware of 4.3.3, Make sure your hosts file is pointed towards Apple Server > TU > Advance Tab > Deselect : Set hosts file towards cydia > save > close it. Your error 1015 will be avoided this way.

    Fix recovery will not kick out DfU mode. Are you trying to preserve your unlockable baseband ?

    Go for 4.3.3, this is what you do :
    Make sure your hosts file points to Apple server, don't run tss server. You can point your hosts file by changing the option in TU.
    Create a custom firmware of 4.3.3 from Snowbreeze 2.7.3 and restore to it.

    Alternate Method for Iphone 4 to preserve baseband.
    Make sure your 4.3.3 shsh file is in TU.
    Make sure the hosts is pointed towards cydia server : TU > adv > Select : set hosts file to cydia upon exit, click apply.
    Start Tss Server > keep it running throughout the process.
    Run itunes : shift + Restore to stock 4.3.3 ipsw
    Error 1013 pops up
    Put your iphone into normal DfU mode : Iphone plug in > hold both button for 10 secs > release Power button but keep holding Home button until you hear a beep and the screen is black.
    Now download this file : Here
    Apply this fix
    Now you are at Emergency screen or Home Screen if you have the official sim
    Jailbreak it with either Redsn0w RC18 or Jailbreakme 3.0
    You are all set.
    Your baseband is also preserve at 1.59.00 if that is your bb before the restore.

    i tried the restoration again thanks dude... thank you very much., i want to share how does it work for me if you guys got a trouble same like mine.

    1. download SB 2.7 and IOS 4.3.3 official and TinyUmbrella Latest Version
    2. follow the steps on SB 2.7 and create a custom firmware
    3. Run TinyUmbrella save shsh, set hosts to cydia start server
    4. open itunes, and browse for the custom firmware.
    5. after restoration your phone will be in emergency mode (locked)
    6. download redsn0w RC18 do the steps, BROWSE FOR THE OFFICIAL FIRMWARE next do the steps on the screen
    7. now your phone will be rebooting and jail broken go to cydia install the ultrasn0w and run it to complete the unlock...

    THanks again iYeow

    Glad you got it working

    Oh! one more last thing, update cydia and install "PDF patcher 2" to close the PDF exploit from virus attack.

    I'm assuming you have tried umbrella and RecBoot?

    RecBoot kick boots it out differently I believe

Those tools are required to get the baseband you have now. With that baseband you can't possibly have a stock fw on 4.2.1 and up. Unless you have SHSHs for 4.1 or you can use iFaith (not clear if this can be done now considering it is in a boot loop and likely can't be recognized by softwares) to grab the SHSHs for 4.1 now.

    I'm not going to confuse you with all these different options so I'm just going to tell you what I think you should do to get your phone working in the most efficient and easiest way.

    1) Get Sn0wbreeze (if you're on PC, if on Mac get PwnageTool) from iH8Sn0w.com
    2) Get Redsn0w and a 4.3.3 ipsw to put into pwned dfu mode. I suggest redsn0w to do this bc it is the most reliable and consistent tool.
    3) Create a custom 4.3.3 firmware with Sn0wbreeze. I suggest creating your own bc downloading one that someone else created sometimes can give you corrupted firmware. It's better to use one you created yourself for your device.
    Thanks for getting me out of IFaith recovery hell mode.
    Worked like a charm.

    Go to Settings > Phone > FaceTime > ON/OFF, there isn't any Facetime under General
