Help get me out of DFU mode

Hi guys, i dont know if anyone can give me a idiots guide to getting out of DFU mode, i changed the LCD screen and for some reason it ended up in DFU Mode, i have run itunes and error 29 comes up, it is apparent it is a battery issue but i really need to get out of the DFU Mode, is there anyway i can get out of the DFU Mode, this is a friends phone, it is not jailbroken and i'm unsure of the software version, however it was being used up till december 2011.
I have read through the previous DFU posts and can't really make head nor tail of them.

Many thanks for any help in advance.

Here are the steps to get out of DFU mode:

1. Hold down the "home" + "power" button simultaneously.
2. After 12 seconds of holding, release the home button and continue to hold the power button until the apply logo screen comes on.
3. pat yourself on the back.

It's a fairly recent post. Hope it works.

Bummer. There used to be programs, way back when, that would push you out of DFU. I haven't found one that would work when I needed it though.
