    No, you don't have to be plugged in to go into DFU mode, but to do anything with DFU, yes, you need to be plugged in.

    It would also be incredibly difficult to tell whether you are in DFU mode or simply just off. When plugged into USB itunes or windows/mac would react.

    Mac doesn't react. Only if you have iTunes open.

    You're right, i'm just so used to having iTunes already open on my mac, that i didn't think.

    Are there any application for the mac, to detect it? (iTunes, yes, but anything else)
