DFU mode is black screen, so everything ok.

If greenpois0n says it failed, check your Internet connection or download the necessary files manually.

As an alternative, you can use a custom firmware (PwnageTool or sn0wbreeze).

Why do people write off rc5 as the problem for DFU, I used rc5 on several idevices and didn't have any problems with DFU.
