Hi Folks,

I downloaded the 6.1 IPSW and did a shift-update in itunes. Did I perform a "DFU restore"? I'm curious because I want to prep my 4S for the upcoming JB...

Step 1: Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your PC or Mac, make sure that you are using the latest iTunes version on your computer

Step 2: You have to be patient in this step cause this is the most important step Hold the power button and home button for 15 seconds the both with each other. Then release the power button but keep holding the home button for another 15 seconds. The screen below will appear if your steps are right

Step 3: If you’ve successfully entered DFU mode, the device screen will be black and iTunes will say it’s in recovery. If u didn't do this step then u didn't go in DFU MODE
