Question: Recovery mode for iPhone 5 not working
I wanted to see if my iPhone 5 was still working. It was asking me for the passcode, which I can no longer remember. So I tried to put it in recovery mode, but no matter what I tried, the iTunes logo never appears. It always goes to normal screen with clock and saying 'iPhone is disabled'. I even tried with DFU mode, but even that doesn't work.
I tried contacting support who gave me the standard steps to recover and ultimately suggested I bring it to a shop. But I just want to see if it works - not necessarily use it, so would hate to spend the money.
Are there other suggestions?
