    Enter DFU Mode

    The very first thing you have to do is, restoring your iPhone in the DFU mode. It means you have to get your iPhone to an interface with the help of iTunes, without iTunes robotically loading the latest version of iOS onto it. Go through the following given below simple instructions in order to enter the DFU Mode:

    Simply connect your iPhone to your computer with the help of a 30-pin USB (Universal Serial Bus).

    Now, use the “Power” button of your iPhone to switch it off.

    Once you power off your iPhone, simply press and hold the “Home Button” and the “Power Button,” all together on your phone for around 10 seconds.

    Now, free the power button of your iPhone and carry on pressing its home button (main button) for few more seconds until your computer identifies your iPhone connected to it as a standard USB device.

    Now, restore your iPhone like the way you generally do.
