    Hello, I have a question. Before I put my device into DFU mode, I saved SHSH blobs on Tinyumbrella. It is not getting out of DFU mode, so I was thinking, how to I just restore to a SHSH file I saved in TinyUmbrella? And if I don't have to, how do I get out of DFU mode? I tried the button method but it doesn't work. :(
    I really want my iPhone to work, and I want to get it out of DFU mode.


    How do I know which one is for the 4.2.1 one? I have 4.2.1 but I tried to upgrade to 4.3.3 but failed with stupid errors and I'm tired of experimenting so can you please provide a quick how to, or an article or something? Thanks :)

    I can fix recovery (button) on tiny umbrella, but it doesn't do anything..

    Then, I use fix recovery tool, download the .dll file needed, and right now it's nothing, it says waiting for reboot on cmd. But before this time, it would show lines of white text like code (programming) being typed on a black screen saying stuff like "checking if already jail broken" and something about green poison and way more. Then, the screen would turn black again and I still would not be able to turn it on and I followed the power + home button method and trying to turn it on method but nothing.

    usually, to get out of DFU mode, which is just the black screen no logos or images, just hold home and power/sleep button at same time for about 5-10 seconds and it will kick it into restore mode. From there, use tinyumbrellas recovery fix. I had this same issue and had to run recoveryfix twice before it worked and the last time, I thought it was stuck on the last screen that said something about green poison but when I opened itunes, it all started working adn my iphonew as back in business.

    Wow, looks like once again the blobs didn't save. No 1.2.4 blobs are in the saved list. I guess I can't do anything now.

    You mean 4.2.1?
    You can only restore to the blobs you have available.
    Check with TU to see what's there.

    Yes just plug it to iTunes and restore it.
    It's a 3GS or i4?

    1. iPhone 4 GSM 32 GB.

    2. How? If I click restrore, it says it will "clear everything and update to the latest version of iOS" If I shift click and select 4.2.1, then it gives me several errors whether it's 1600, 1604, 31, 37, or that other one which I forgot, also sometimes "could not contact the server" or something. The device is in DFU (NOT RECOVERY) right now. I got it out of DFU and I know how to, BUT, I cannot turn it on even then. I press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, and still nothing. Then, I try to hold the home and power button for 10 seconds and also, once again, nothing.

    (THE DEVICE IS ON 4.2.1 currently.)

    Because somehow the software got messed up and needs a restore to boot up again.

    Noone knows for sure but not that long would be my guess.
    Less than a month or so.

    Nope.
    Each blobs are unique to each device.
    You cannot use another iphones or ipads blobs to restore.
    If we could then we'd all be using one persons blobs to downgrade every iphone or ipad out there.
