    Is there a alternative way to put iphone in DFU mode? My power button broke on my iphone and I can't jailbrake my iphone to firmware 2.2.

    Nope.. you need a working home and power button to get into Recovery or DFU mode. Bummer.

    Give this a try.

    1.) First download the required archive Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

    2.) Extract the archive to the root of your hard drive, should be C:/DFU/

    3.) Connect your iPhone and ignore iTunes

    4.) Goto Start - run

    5.) Next type in “c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu”

    6.) Wait for iPhone to show a “white” screen.So you are in DFU mode...

    Hi, all.

    I'm also having problems with iphone 3G 3.0. after upgrading to 3.0, the fone keeps telling me to 'wait for Activation, - This may take some time'.
    After a whole day of waiting, I've decided to downgrade to 2.2.1 but also cant do this. cos, i've read about using itunes but not what version, i should to do so?
    can som1 verify this please.

    ? - Can i use WinSCP to delete all info from the iphone and then restore complete new firmware of 2.2.1?

    Steps to Put Your iPhone/iPad/iPod into DFU Mode:
    Step 1 : Launch iTunes and connect your iPhone to your Windows PC or MAC.
    Step 2 : Hold Down the Power Button and Home Button together at the same time.
    Step 3 : Now count for 10 seconds and after that release the Power button but Continue to Hold the Home Button.
    Step 4 : After 3-5 seconds, your iPhone will look like completely turned off.
