    Use Spirit to jailbreak.

    If you feel you absolutely need to get into DFU, try turning it off, hold power for 3 seconds, then hold home+power together for 15 seconds, release power and hold home for about 15 seconds.

    No, the process you listed isn't the same as what I said. That's why I suggested trying it. Sometimes persistence and perhaps some variation can yield results. The above always worked for my second gen iPT.

    If it isn't working on two separate devices that you are working with, you're either doing something wrong or both devices are just being hard to deal with.

    Odd that both aren't doing it tho. I kinda ruled out hardware button failure bc two not just one weren't working.
