Hold power and home for 10 seconds, then release power but keep holding home for another 10 seconds.

Hold home+power for 10 seconds, let go of power but keep holding home for an additional 10 seconds. Let go. You must be plugged into USB while doing this. Are you having problems with greenpois0n detecting dfu?
