I have tried various tutorials, and I have made the firmware I needed to, all I need to do is get the damn thing in DFU mode, and then the step where I get the white screen. When I think im successfully in DFU mode, I always fail to get the white screen, so I am wondering if im doing somthing wrong? I hold both buttons for 10 seconds, let go of the sleep button keepin the home button for 5 and letting to go a black screen... still nothing else works.. any help is greatly apreciated! EDIT: Is there a way I can skip the step with the white screen and go right to restoring with the new firware from itunes?.. or is this step really needed?
