How do I prevent Tenorshare iphone data recovery from crashing every time I try to connect my iPhone?


Hello, firend. iPhone Data Recovery for iPhone 4S is leww likely to crash and DFU mode is not needed. And the bug-fixed version is better than the previous. If it crashes really badly, you can apply for an exchange from Tenorshare.

My phone will take a picture but not display it


If your iPhone gets to the Silver logo but restarts from there again and again then it is an indication of problem with the booting system. This often results due to Jailbreaking or updating your iPhone to latest iOS without enough battery life. You can fix this easily by entering into DFU Mode.

A DFU mode stand for Device Firmware Update mode which helps you to make small changes to the software that is exactly responsible for running your device. It is most often confused with Recovery Mode but it is very comprehensive than that. To enter into DFU mode follow these steps

Step1: Connect your iPhone with Computer

Step2: Since your device is turned off you need to hold down the sleep/power and Home buttons at the same time for atleast 10 seconds. Be patient in this step and make sure you hold these buttons for exactly 10 seconds because otherwise you will enter into recovery mode.

Step 3: After 10 seconds have passed, let go of the sleep/power button, but keep holding the Home Button.

Step4: Now Apple Logo will appear on you iPhone but you should not stop holding the home button until recovery warning pops up on your iTunes.

Step 5: A difference between DFU and recovery mode can understood by observing your iPhone screen. If it is black then you are in DFU mode and if shows a cable connecting to the iTunes icon then you are in recovery mode. The latter cases you will need to repeat all the steps and this time you should lay more emphasis on Step 3 and Step 4. It is normal if you don't get there in first few tries.

Once you are in DFU mode you can downgrade your iPhone iOS in case the new version has created the problem.

What is dfu mode and how do you do it


You enter dfu mode so iTunes can detect an iPhone in recovery mode and then prompt you to restore. You will lose all your files when you do this but if you have a backup in iTunes then you're good to go. To enter dfu mode, just press both power and home buttons simultaneously for exactly 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, release the power but keep holding home then wait until iTunes detects your iphone and prompt you to restore.

Everytime i enter make it rain it says blackrain has encountered a problem and needs to close.


I've encountered that before when I tried to jailbreak a disabled iPhone thinking that blackra1n will override any restrictions, but I was wrong. So, I put the iPhone to DFU mode first and restored it before I can continue on my jailbreak.

I bought a used iphone 2g on ebay and the previous users contents were still on it. So I used the "erase all contents" option in settings on the phone. It erased everything, including all the apps! Now I...


Make sure you are running iTunes 8.2. Download the 3.0 ipsw (iphone1,1_3.0_7A341_restore). Connect the phone to iTunes and wait for it to detect. Put the phone into DFU mode (hold the power and home buttons for about 10 seconds, until the phone turns off. After the phone turns off, continue holding the power and home buttons for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, release the power button but continue to hold the home button.) It should take about 10-15 seconds and iTunes will detect the iphone in DFU recovery mode. If the apple logo appears on the iphone or if the screen lights up at all, repeat the process. There should be nothing on the iPhone at all, like its turned off. Once the iPhone is connected to iTunes and is in DFU mode, hold SHIFT on your PC and click restore (Windows). Select the ipsw file you downloaded for restore. Once the iPhone finishes restoring and updating to the 3.0 firmware, jailbreak using redsn0w. After jailbreak, use ultrasn0w through Cydia to unlock. There are plenty of instruction sites for getting and using redsn0w if you don't have it already. I like iclarified.com, but you can probably choose from many.

Hope this is helpful, please don't forget to rate. If you have any other questions, or need any more help with this, send me an email.

Iphone will not restore


Try restoring in DFU mode, which is different than recovery mode. I happened to stumble across it while trying to restore an iPhone 3G that a user unplugged in the middle of the 3.1 update. It kept showing an error of 1611 or 13 and wouldn't restore in recovery mode. I found this DFU mode option and the restore worked fine. The DFU mode keeps the iPhone OS from loading, so you don't run into as many compatibility problems. Go into DFU mode, then try restoring the phone and see if that works.
http://techierambles.blogspot.com/2009/09/restore-iphone-with-error-13-or-1611-in.html
To enter DFU mode:
1. Connect your iPhone to your computer
2 . Turn iPhone off. You may have to hold the power and home buttons down together to force the phone off
3. Once the phone is off, hold the power and home buttons together for 10 seconds exactly
4. After 10 seconds, release the power button but keep holding home until the computer recognizes that a USB device was plugged in
5. iTunes should detect your iPhone correctly, and also allow you to restore to the factory default settings

Sounds like you were trying to jailbreak your phone and it failed. You need to get your phone back into DFU mode and do a full restore to version 1.1.3. Then use ZiPhone (ziphone.org) to jailbreak your phone. Use these instructions to get your phone into DFU mode and restore your phone:
