DFU Restore Tutorial (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)


Entering DFU Mode on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

  1. Plug your device into a computer with iTunes installed using an MFi certified cable.
  2. Hold the power button for three seconds and swipe to shutdown.
  3. Hold the Home and Power buttons for ten seconds.
  4. Stop holding the power button but continue holding Home.
  5. If you have followed the instructions above iTunes should notify you that there is a device in 'Recovery Mode' connected within about fifteen seconds.

Your device should auto-magically exit DFU Mode once a restore has been successfully completed, but if the restore fails or you want to return to a normal boot just hold down Power and Home for five seconds to Hard Reset your device.
