to enter dfu mode the fastest way is make sure your phone is on hold the power button until you see the power off then keep your finger on the power button and hold the home button at the same time count to 7 slowly and when you hear a noise from your computer release the power button and keep holding the home button for another 7secs remember count slowly then when you hear a noise from your computer release the home button then you should be in dfu mode when you count make sure it's like this 1...2...3...4...5...6...7
