    If I hit the erase all content and data button in settigs. Is there anyway to turn the iphone off and put it straight in dfu mode while the spinning thing is going on or do I have to wait for it to finish even though I'm going to restore to factory settings?

    You can put it into DFU mode without restoring it.

    To put your iPhone in DFU mode:

    (Make sure your phone is not plugged into the USB)
    • Turn your phone off
    • Plug in the USB to your phone and hold the Home button
    • Your phone will go into DFU mode
