    I have an activated iphone 5 and just got it unlocked with factory service. Do I have to put it in DFU and do a restore? or just a regular restore will work.

    I cannot seem to put the iphone 5 in DFU? Is there a way to get the activation done again?

    connect phone to USB

    hold home and power until it turn off, hold both 3 more seconds, than release power while holding home for 10 more seconds, itunes will find an iphone in recovery and iphone screen must be blank

    Has that changed for iphone 5? It used to be easier with 4s

    I believe it has. as with 4s you can connect the USB and then press home and power for 10 seconds and then home for 5-6 seconds and the phone goes in DFU. with the Ip5, it just plain reboots without DFU. So there must be something different with the timing.
