    So I have an old iPhone 3g and it always seems to get stuck in DFU mode somehow (I get bored and *try* to jailbreak it, it freezes up and I have to do a hard reset however it doesn't reset, etc.), however I cannot restore it from DFU and I cannot remove it from DFU mode with any logical process because it just ends up going out of DFU mode and to a "turned off stage" however I cannot start it up. Now eventually I find a way to get it back on, such as getting it to recovery mode by letting it sit for a day in DFU and then holding the home and hold button for 10ish seconds, but I'm hoping someone else has this problem besides me, because this iPhone is nothing like any others I have had.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Something is seriously wrong with that phone.
    Most likelly a hardware problem.

    Have you owned this phone since it was new? If so, what happened to it to make it the way it is now? Something had to happen, it's rare for an iphone to just be that way.

    Sounds like something inside got damaged.
