I am trying to help a friend fix their iPhone. I have no idea what version it was on before. The unit is currently stuck in the recovery loop. I have tried: RecBoot, iReb, TinyUmbrella they all kick it out and it restarts to the apple logo, then restarts again, and goes back to the recovery screen In iTunes I tried to do a basic restore to the 5.0.1 software, I hit restore and it seems to go fine, it shows the loading bar and gets to about the end and gives me error (1). I tried to do the Shift+Restore and select my software 5.0.1 ipsw and it gives me errors ranging from 1, 2, 9, 11. I have Avast and I disabled it completely. I also turned off Windows Firewall. Now here is the other issue, if I could get into DFU or Pwned DFU I might be able to BUT: -Once I plug unit into the USB it comes on, I have no swipe to power off -If I hold the home+sleep the unit will flash off, but restart back to recovery -If I hold Home+sleep it will flash off, while still holding the buttons the apple symbol will come on and after a few seconds it goes off. Great...except when I try to hold home+sleep for 10 seconds to start DFU the phone immediately comes back on. -I have tried holding the sleep and the home+sleep for 30 seconds to completely shut off phone, but does not seem to help as soon as I hit the sleep button in any combination it turns on to the apple then recovery screen So I have no idea how to get it into DFU mode, again if I could I could try Redsn0w get it into Pwned DFU and then try the restore. Any ideas????
