    if you want to get out of DFU mode

    hold the sleep/wake button and the home button until the start up logo pops up

    this is because you are not in true DFU mode.

    to get into tru DFU copy and paste this to the adress bar

    change the computer and if its in DFU mode do the same process you did to take it out of DFU if not restore with a fresh 2.0

    You have to get it out of the DFU mode you are stuck in. I had the same problem, on mine I just held the sleep/wake and select button for what seemed like forever and then got it back to true DFU. You will know when you are in a stuck or in a false DFU if your screen doesnt flash white once after you try to install the new firmware. If all else fails let the battery drain and you should be able to get it in DFU again.
