    Put into DFU mode. iTunes should recognize it as in recovery.

    It's not in DFU mode if the apple logo stays on the screen.

    He's already said it. It's not in DFU if the logo is still there. Hold home and lock button down for 10-15 until screen flashes off, then release lock button and continue to hold home button until iTunes message pops up stating its in recovery mode.

    Obviously, but he said that after DFU and hard reset the apple logo stayed. My point was that he never had it in DFU if the apple was still on the screen.

    In my message quoting you, I meant it as in I agree with you and meant that YOU had already said how to do it. Lol sorry if I quoted and responded confusingly. I sometimes confuse myself :p
