    Do your Power and Home button work ? It is easy to test, press Power Bt to turn off or Home Bt to return to Home Screen.

    Can you do recovery mode ?

    Have you restored to 4.1 yet ?

    Don't pull it out , it may damage the hard drive

    Normal dfu : with iPhone plug in, hold both Bt for 10 secs until the sCreen goes off , release Power but keep holding Home Bt until you hear a beep, screen is black.

    Recovery mode : Turn off device , while holding the Home Bt, plug it in until iTunes cable logos appear.

    Hard reset : Hold both bts until it reboots .

    Pwned dfu : You need tools to help you.

    Just follow redsnow 0.9.6 b6 , follow the instructions and do your count.

    I have never seen not being able to get into dfu if ur buttons are working. I have seen tons trying to get out of dfu but not this, weird

    google iclarified or watch YouTube if you don't know how or ask someone to do it for you.

    What ?? Why are you deleting LLB.
    when you are at emergency screen, run redsnow , browse to stock 4.1 ipsw, it will load ramdisk, then turn off iPhone, do your count and it should hactivate and jailbreak it.
    If your firmware is download as .zip, rename it to .ipsw

    Sorry man, you followed some wrong thread. If you had strictly followed my instructions , you would by now have a jailbroken and unlocked iPhone .

    hi the phone is back on all working with 4.1 bb 05.15.04 still on [email protected],i took it to a friend that knows a bit he suggested we take the phone apart take the battery out for 5 mins great it worked,problem is he also could not get into dfu mode after so back at square one.
    he is not sure why as both buttons work ok,pls can any one help me unlock this phone to any networks uk and jailbreak without using buttons??i will take advice from this site now as thought i had made a brick
    or will it be easier to sell as is on official [email protected] not jailbroke?

    If you cannot get into dfu mode, then you can't jailbreak. Sell it as it is will be your best option.

    hi have sorted the phone open to all networks now,even tho as mentioned sleep and home buttons seemed to work ok the home button was stopping me entering dfu mode,my daughter has a 3g so i changed over the fronts and hey presto dfu worked greatas you said i used redsn0w updated to 4.2.1 bb 6.15.00 unlock with ultrasn0w 1.2
    just a message to all who think they going mad with the dfu its not always your fault even tho buttons seem to work they may not be working correctly
