    If you accedently put your iPod Touch or iPhone into DFU mode, you would normally have to have to restore it. But here's a way to get out of DFU mode without having to restore or even touch your keyboard or mouse.


    1. If you have your iDevice connected to your computer, disconnect it.
    2. Keep the Power/Lock and Home button pressed in for about 10-14 seconds.
    3. It will now restart and everything will be back the way it was, just as if you didn't do a thing!
    This worked for me on my iPod Touch 3G with 3.1.3 firmware. I don't know whether this works on an iPhone or not.

    Hope this helps your problem,

    Explain to me how one accidently does DFU? It involves pressing of buttons in a certain order and time sequence that is almost impossible to do unless you know that you're doing it.

    Well, you might be trying to put it into recovery mode. Ah I don't know! It's just a tutorial on how to get it out of dfu mode, and sorry if it doesn't work for you but it did for me when I was trying to jailbreak it and it didn't work.

    I have tried that before, didn't work. Then again I was on 3.1.1, dunno if it makes a difference.
