Iphone stuck in Recovery mode cant go into DFU mode to restore..

Hi, well my iphone 4 is stuck in recovery mode and i don't got any shsh so i wanna get it to 4.3.5 to use it but i need to be in DFU mode.. now the problem is whenever i connect my iphone to my pc it turns on. When i try to enter DFU mode it won't go, the screen turns black and after about 7~10 seconds the apple logo comes on and if i release the sleep/wake button it goes to the screen with the usb and itunes logo.. So i can't go into DFU mode..
But whenever it's not connected to my PC im able to go into DFU mode..

If you're getting the "Connect to iTunes" message, you should be able to "update and restore to the lates OS." This of course wipes your phone and puts 4.35 on it and once it reboots it can/ will copy all your files/ media from your iTunes library... I lost my 4.3.3 J/B but I'll take a working 4.3.5 over a "bricked" 4.3.3 anyday. I turned off my land line so I need a reliable/ working phone... I'll try J/B'g again(maybe) after 5.0 comes out followed by a J/B.

Error 1604: This error is often related to USB timing. Try changing USB ports, uninstalling and reinstalling USB ports, and other available USB troubleshooting steps (troubleshooting USB connections, device not recognized properly, computer won't recognize a FireWire or USB device). If you are using a dock, bypass it and connect directly to the white Apple USB dock connector cable. If the issue persists on a known-good computer, the device may need service.

If the issue is not resolved by USB isolation troubleshooting, and another computer is not available, try these steps to resolve the issue:

1. Connect the device to iTunes, confirm that the device is in Recovery Mode. If it's not in Recovery Mode, put it into Recovery Mode.
2. Restore and wait for error 1604.
3. When prompted, click OK.
4. Close and reopen iTunes while iPhone remains connected.
5. iPhone should now be recognized in Recovery Mode again.
6. Try to restore again.

If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try restoring using a known-good USB cable, computer, and network connection.

I just fixed my problem after fighting with the iphone 4 and couple of different laptops hehehe, well actually i think it is all about timing to get the iphone in recovery mode, I used iFaith to help me get in DFU mode and I dont know what happened but I followed the instructions on iFaith and woila the iphone entered the DFU mode and then I restored the IOS4.3.5 after that i jailbroke it using redsn0w 0.9.8b5, this is a teathered jailbreak so i had again some problems when i restored my back up i tried to put it in DFU mode using redsn0w instructions and i didnt get the timing right sometimes so i used again iFaith and when i got it in DFU I unnplugged the cable fast from the computer and then I run redsn0w and booted the iphone 4, I had also the nevest version of redsn0w and that one didnt work for me it just hang when tried to jailbreak the phone or just boot the iphone 4 so i had to use redsn0w 0.9.8b5 and the redsn0w.exe was placed in my C: drive directly.

I hope that this info will help someone.

i will ask you if you have used Tiny Umbrella and saved your SHSH with cydia server, if so, tell me what blobs you have saved there, i was lucky enough to have shsh for 4.3.3, and downgraded mine to v4.3.3, and now i have a fully untetheret jailbrak that works.
