Thread: DFU mode without power button?

  1. #1
    Default DFU mode without power button?
    I have a faulty power button, sometimes it works just fine, and other times it'll make the screen flash on and off. But because of this, my phone won't let me enter DFU mode, it'll simply turn itself on. I've been trying for hours to put it into DFU mode, and nothings working. Is there a program or app that'll put it into DFU mode for me?

    I don't believe that's possible. Recovery mode without a power/home button is possible in most instances, but not DFU. I believe some people have done it with some weird process with different tools and forcing the device to jump into DFU, but I personally wouldn't do it just because it isn't an "officially advised" way to do things. How it's done, I don't remember, but some searching through the forums may help you find it if you really absolutely need it to happen.

    I found this on DFU Mode - The iPhone Wiki

    This is NOT the same as pwnd-DRU mode and will not work for most higher-version loads.

    Enter True Hardware DFU Mode Automatically

    It is possible to Enter True Hardware DFU Mode without doing it manually but it cannot be exited unless a restore is performed.It is called the DFU Loop.

    Steps

    Make a copy of a fresh IPSW file
    Open the IPSW as a zip folder and browse to /firmware/all_Flash/all_flash.xxxxx.production/
    Extract LLB.*****.RELEASE.img3 and open it in a hex editor
    Change some random bit or bits, it doesn't matter which or what you write
    Add the edited file back to the zip, rename zip to ipsw and restore it to your device using iTunes
    iTunes Restore will error out and your device will be in DFU Mode
    .
    Note1: As stated above, this will cause a DFU-loop if a restore is not performed.
    Note2: If you don't understand the instructions --- stay away.
    Note3: Use at your own risk !!

    Note: if you're looking for pwned DFU, the above is not going to give the same effect. So don't do it unless you're just needing a standard DFU mode, but then again if you're just needing a standard DFU mode to restore might as well just use Recovery Mode. You'll get the same results. It's pwned DFU mode that allows restore to cFW so if that's what you're looking to do...I wouldn't recommend the above steps.
