    Does itunes actually recognize that its in restore mode? if so, at which point during the restoring process does it reboot?

    Unless one of your buttons is broken DFU mode should be the key. Try, with the phone plugged into computer & iTunes closed, hold power plus home till phone reboots, keep holding both for exactly ten seconds, relese power button and hold home for another 10 seconds or until iTunes opens seeing the phone. Remember DFU mode has no logo on the screen.

    i have tried everything from trying to restore in pwned dfu mode with
    a custom firmware to using irecovery( iphone not found on it )

    the guy told me before he gave it to me it worked fine it had cydia on it
    and was jailbroken and unlocked

    he reset it by pressing reset settings and phone content if it helps

    Have you tried commenting out gs.apple.com in the hosts file at /etc/hosts before restoring?

    I ran into a similar problem after jailbreaking and cydia was screwing up the itunes restore verification.
