How can I put iOS7 into DFU mode? I have tried and always keep getting the apple logo. I can't figure out why it isn't working. I hold just until the scren turns black and then wait and I always just restart the phone.

 

Here is what I am doing:

Hold sleep/wake and home at the same time until screen is black

 

is this not correct? any help would be great!

    I can't see the purpouse of putting iOS 7 to DFU mode at the moment. However the instructions are following:

     

    1) Power the device down

    2) Start holding Power button for 3 seconds

    3) Hold Home button but don't let go of the Power button, 10 seconds

    4) Keep holding Home and let go of Power. About 15 seconds just to be sure

     

    That's it. You should now be in DFU mode.

    I guess the method is workable, but the problem is that my power button does work now....I know I should change a new one....I still want to know if it is possible to solve the problem of how to put iPhone in DFU mode without iPhone itself.

    Hi, Tyler

    Here is my way about how to put iPhone in DFU mode, Hope it helps:

    Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer.

    Step 2. Turn your iPhone off.

    Step 3. Press the "Power" button on the top of your iPhone for 3 seconds.

    Step 4. Press the "Power" and "Home" buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds.

    Step 5. Release the "Power" button and keep pressing the "Home" button.

    Step 6. Let your finger pressing on the "Home" button go when the computer finds new hardware and iTunes detects you’re your iPhone has entered the recovery mode. After that, your iPhone succeeds in enter DFU Mode.
