    To restore to stock firmware in DFU mode:
    -install the correct firmware from iclarified.com
    -connect your phone to your computer
    -power the phone off
    -hold power for 3 seconds, then power and home for 10 seconds, then release power while holding home for 15 seconds.
    -Your device should now have a black screen. Click Shift+Restore in iTunes (Cmnd+Restore if on a Mac), then select the iPSW you downloaded earlier.
    -iTunes will install the iPSW to your device and you can choose to restore from a backup, or to set up as a new iPhone.

    I would also recommend checking the sticky at the top of the iPhone Hacks section of this forum, and brows around the applicable tutorials on iClarified.
