    Ok Basically I'm trying to help a friend w/ his Iphone 4.


    Redsnow says the verizon iphone 4 is in "soft dfu" mode"
    itunes tries to restore the iphone but it doesnt get past the restoring progress bar ( see pic)

    He's running the latest itunes on Windows 8. This happened when trying to upgrade to ios 6.....

    has tried tiny umbrella as well

    any ideas?

    Shut it down and start it holding the up volume button and see if that kicks it out of dfu mode.

    Just hold the power button until it goes black, then hold the up volume level as it tries to boot up again.
