    hold the home and sleep button for 10 sec. then release the sleep button. keep holding the home button and make sure itunes is running. once itunes recognizes, you may release the home button and continue with the process.

    it takes a couple of tries to perfect this

    My problem is similar to this:
    The problem i am getting is when putting in DFU mode, my computer doesnt recognize properly, it sees it as usb device.. I have installed libusb and am on xp 32bit.
    any thoughts?
    I am sure I am putting it in DFU mode
