    I have an iphone 5c that is jailbroken (I wasn't aware of this).
    anyway, I was having some issues with the phone 'searching' for service, so I did a factory reset.
    From there I as not able to activate the phone. After trying numerous things, I put the phone into recovery mode, tried to update/restore with no success (now I know why)
    Now the phone is stuck in recovery mode. I have attempted to do the dfu mode reset, but it still is in recovery mode.
    Can anyone please help, with simple/basic instructions on how/if I can fix it (im not very technology minded!)

    Make sure you iPhone is plugged into a USB to a computer before you attempt to enter DFU mode

    Make sure that computer also has iTunes installed

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    A JB iphone 5c can be restored to stock ios via itunes with no problems.
    Using just recovery mode or DFU restore mode.
    If it doesnt restore then it has a hardware problem and has nothing to do with it being JB before.

    Follow these guides on how to enter dfu mode.
