    Thanks to iFuntastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I opened iFuntastic and selected the appropriate firmware (1.1.4 + Upgrade) and clicked Exit Recovery Mode / Reboot Device. It downloaded something (although i think it didnt and my device is NOT jailbroken :D:D:D:D:D:D:D) then said 'Exiting recovery...' and 'Rebooting...' my iPod then showed up with 'Slide to Unlock' and everything was still there.

    My symptoms were (before iFuntastic):

    iTunes wouldn't recognize it

    So i put it in DFU/Recover Mode, it wouldn't exit out of it!!!!!
    So i used that.

    Everybody....check for Apple Mobile Device Support on your Macs/PCs because if thats gone....reinstall iTunes and the Device Support because thats why it wouldnt work or Restore. Oh and btw........using iFuntastic prevented a restore. :D:D:D:D:D:D

    Cheers All + Hope this helps anyone

    iNdependence did the trick

    I accidentally got myself in restore mode, so after trying iFuntastic, which didn't work for me (I have a jailbroke iphone).

    I went back to google and I used iNdependence. Just launched the app and my phone automatically got out of restore mode. Didn't have to do anything. Thank god I didn't have to restore. :)

    THANK YOU iNdependence!!!

    You cannot get out of DFU mode: Once you're in DFU, you HAVE to restore.

    DFU and Recovery mode are 2 different things. It's easy to get out of Recovery mode... you can use Ziphone for example to select "Normal Boot". Please don't confuse DFU mode with Recovery... it's different.

    yep. Two diffrent animals.

    And out of curosoity, if your iPod is not jailbroken, and this is not a hack, why the hacks section?

    Out of DFU

    Yes, you can get out of DFU.

    I'm really taking about DFU and not recovery mode.
    (I've only tested on an iPhone and not a touch)

    When in DFU, hold down the home button and the power button for about 10 seconds. If your phone is connected to your computer you'll hear a beep as when a USB device is disconnected.
    Next just press the power button and your phone will startup at usual.

    If you've just accidentally dropped into DFU and done nothing more, then the above will get you out.

    If you're in DFU and mid-way through a failed restore, then you will need a complete iTunes restore to get you out.

    My GF keeps getting her iPhone into DFU somehow, says she doesnt do anything :)

    Ive tried what you said but it just restarts into DFU still. Does the phone have to be on or off? And is it best to have it plugged in to a computer (she doesnt have her laptop to hand atm)?

    Thanks guys

    dude are you high? .. I tried that on iPod touch 2nd generation. Holding the power button did nothing. Once its in DFU mode.. I had to run redsnow
    Luckily I have that redsn0w-win_0.7.2 and the iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw handy firmware on my desktop
    .. Jailbreak takes about 4 minutes.. After it says downloading jailbreak data, then you will see the apple icon and hear a DA-DA song.. Or whatever and it will
    1) show apple icon
    2) turn black/blue and be blank and about 30 .. Okay or maybe it will stay blank forever.. Since that's what its doing now SHOOT! Uh oh.

    Um make that 8 minutes recovery time if you screw it up like me... HELP! :(

    I saw an apple icon with a loading icon behind it.. Uh.. :( Not again!

    ive got the answers

    Heres a way thats a 100 times easier. Download quickpwn 2.2 it can recognize your phone in recovery mode

    Plug your phone in follow the prompt that tells you to turn off the phone and when you hold the power button to turn it on, presto, out of recovery mode. Takes a whole minute and a half.

    Lordy. Did anyone who posted here this year, actually read the start date of this thread? No bumping please, this came about when 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 were around, most of you who posted this year never had an iPod Touch or iPhone back then or you would have known that Apple allowed us to easily get out of DFU and Recovery Mode in 2.0.x+.

    Hey! tried to jailbreak my iphone 3gs 4.0.1 with redsn0w and after i got into dfu mode it said waiting for reboot but nothing happened so i had to get off from dfu mode so i can use my phone again, anyway what i've done and it worked, i've followed the steps for getting into dfu mode lol

    1. hold down the power button for like 5 sec
    2. keep holding the power button and press the home one for like 10 sec
    3. release the power button but keep holding the home one till the apple logo appears

    After i've done that my phone turned on like nothing happened. i;ve had all of my apps installed and stuff, i didnt had to restore or hope this is gonna work for you too. ^^

    And if you end up in recovery mode...just turn off and on your iphone. At least that worked for me...

    Ipod stuck in restore mode - trying to jailbreak


    I hope someone out there can help me...

    I've got a ipod touch 2g, it's got a non functioning 'home' button... i've been trying to jailbreak it so I can download software to circumvent the use of this button...

    I tried to use blackra1n and now it's stuck in the restore mode.

    I've gone into itunes and tried to restore but it keeps coming up with this message 'Ipod could not be restored. This device isn't elligible for the requested build'.

    I'm not sure what to do next..

    I would really appreciate some help...
