    10.5.6?

    Are you trying this on a Mac running 10.5.6? If so then you are being hit by the problem where the Mac will not recognise an iPhone in DFU mode. You can either get a Mac running 10.5.5 (or earlier), use a Windows PC :( or connect the iPhone via a USB hub. If you are not using a Mac running 10.5.6 then where in the process described at,

    are you getting stuck?

    ^^^^ what he said.

    Ah yes, I forgot about the new problems that 10.5.6 have caused.

    Good thing I haven't updated to it yet. I don't feel like going out and buying a USB hub just yet.

    You don't need a hub. Here's the fix.

    hey andy,

    i just looked at your zip file which includes two files in IOUSBFamily.kext

    is this from 10.5.5 (macbook or macbook pro)? the reason i ask is the someone else posted the 10.5.5 file as well but the size of the files are different

    yours -
    AppleUSBHub - 276kb
    IOUSBCompositeDriver - 148kb

    the other user, sk1nhd33t, posted this on
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=594878&page=2
    item #36 http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?zlyq1eyn1in
    AppleUSBHub - 248kb
    IOUSBCompositeDriver - 120kb

    so which one is from where ??? i have 10.5.5 unibody macbook and i am curious as to which file to use now.

    I downloaded it and followed the guide, so I am not sure.

    I tried that on my Macbook and it just stopped and quit after I put in my password, but the USB hub trick seems to be working, so I'd recommend that trick for now!
