    Is there ANY WAY AT ALL to access files while in DFU or Recovery Mode?

    Please do not suggest escaping from Recovery Mode or DFU Mode. I need access to the files while in either of these modes.

    Obviously, SSH cannot work (no IP). The normal solution (iExplorer, funBox, etc) won't work, either, as they only pick up the device when it is NOT in either of these modes.

    Hell, a STRAIGHT DUMP of every single file (all 32GB) would be fine (or great, even). I could always dig through it later.

    Thanks in advance!

    Google "SSH ramdisk iPhone". That will lead you to what you need to know and how to do it.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I've tried (and tried and tried), but that isn't working for me. Is that really the only solution here?

    That's the only way. It does take a little bit of trying, but it works really well once you get it going.

    What is the end result of doing this?

    I can't figure out how this allows me to access my files; there are no good step-by-steps, just a really high level look.

    I spent ten hours trying to manually fix this. Then, I slept. Without tunnel vision, I found this and it was insanely easy to do.

    For anyone who has this problem:

    Regular iPhone backups would ease the stress of these issues.
