    i have an iphone 4 that will not come out of dfu mode. I can jailbreak it with greenpoison and it goes all the way thru but in the end screen goes black and its in dfu mode again. Itunes wont restore it either. 3194 error. It is running 4.2.1 firmware. I have tried restoring with snowbreeze firmware and still nothing. is there a way to get it out of dfu mode?

    Hold the home and sleep buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears.

    i have tried that and have been unsuccessful. I can hear it thru the speakers on my pc that it kicks out of dfu but immediately goes back into dfu mode...

    Unplug it from your PC and do what I described in my last post. It is impossible for a phone to be in DFU mode when it's not connected to a computer.

    Try RecBoot or TinyUmbrella to exit recovery mode.

    I don't really understand what you're trying to say. Please clarify.
