The World's 1st iPhone, iPad data recovery software for personal users

How to Successfully Enter DFU Mode with Your iOS Device?

Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS is the world’s 1st software that can recover data directly from iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, including contacts, SMS, camera roll, call history, notes, reminders, voice memos, etc., as well as recover data from iTunes backup.

Platforms: Windows 8 (64&32 bits)/Windows 7 (64&32 bits)/Vista (64&32 bits)/XP (32 bit).

Wondershare Dr.Fone allows you to directly scan your iPhone 4 (GSM), iPhone 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod touch 4 to recover lost data like contacts, photos, videos, messages, notes, etc. If you’ve ever used it or you’re using it now, you must know it that you need to enter the DFU mode first before you perform the scan and recovery. To some people, it’s an easy job to get into the DFU mode, but to others, it’s not. This time, let’s talk about how to enter the DFU mode successfully at one time.

Actually, there're two ways for you to access the DFU mode with your iOS device. You can do it according to the guide displaying on the window of Wondershare Dr.Fone, after connecting your device. Or you can do it by yourself with your device and leave alone the program.

Enter the DFU mode with Wondershare Dr.Fone running

After running Wondershare Dr.Fone and connecting your device, you’ll get the window as follow (taking iPhone 4 GSM as an example).

Now follow the steps in the window to begin entering the DFU mode.

Step 1. Hold your device, then click the green “Start” button;

Step 2. After clicking the “Start” button, press the “Power” and the “Home” at the same time immediately for exact 10 seconds. The program will count the time for you.

Step 3. When the 10 seconds passed, release the “Power” button right now, but keep pressing the “Home” for another 10 seconds.
