This tutorial will show you how to put your iPhone into DFU Mode. Use DFU Mode to downgrade firmware to older version. DFU mode is not the same as Recovery Mode. You should always try Recovery mode first to solve your iPhone issues because its easier. You can read our previous post How to Put iPhone into Recovery Mode? In case you were wondering about the difference between these two modes refer to iPhone Tip: Difference Between Recovery Mode and DFU Mode.

If your iPhone is dead and doesn’t startup at all you can put your iPhone into DFU mode by following the tutorial and then restore it using Apple’s Firmware Files(.ipsw)

 iPhone into DFU Mode

How to put your iPhone into DFU Mode?

Follow these steps carefully.

Step 1: Connect your iPhone to your computer.

Step 2: Turn your iPhone off. You have to do this after connecting since iPhone automatically turns on every time you connect it to the computer.

To turn off press and hold the power button till you see the “Slide to Power off” screen. Now slide the button to turn it off. In case your iPhone is stuck in an infinite loop and the previous option is unavailable, press and hold the Power and Home button till the screen goes off.

Step 3: Hold Power & Home Button together for 10 seconds. Release Power button but continue holding Home button till your iPhone starts and iTunes detects it. The iPhone screen will remain black and no logo or image should appear.

iPhone-dfu-mode.png

iphone-recovery-mode.png

In case you see the Connect to iTunes screen(2nd Screenshot shown above) on your iPhone you are in Recovery Mode and not DFU. People who are used to jailbreaking their iPhones should be able to do it one attempt. Novice users might take three or four attempts before they get it right. Don’t worry you won’t spoil your iPhone so it’s okay to try.

How to Exit DFU Mode?

If you somehow find yourself stuck and need to exit DFU Mode just hold both Home and Power buttons for five seconds or till the iPhone restarts(Apple logo appears).

Apart from iPhones, you can also use this tutorial to put iPod Touch into DFU Mode or an iPad too. If you need more help, feel free to ask us via comments.

The Apple App Store recently hit the 10 billion mark and were giving away $10,000 in gift coupons to celebrate the same. After Apple hit the 10 billion mark, they decided to dedicate a page to the Top 10 downloaded apps of all time under various categories. This was a really nice move by the Apple personal, as people can now visit this page and downloaded the most favorite and most download apps on to their iOS devices. It will also save them the hassle on searching for the best apps for their devices.

Top 10 iPhone Apps

Below I will list the Top 10 iPhone Apps of all time in various categories and provide a direct app store link so you can download the same. Also I think the Top 10 lists are region specific:

Top 10 Paid iPhone Apps

  • Traffic Rush
  • Snake & Ladder
  • Tap Tap Revenge 3
  • BlueTooth Mania
  • WritePad
  • Rat On the Run
  • Angry Birds
  • WhatsApp Messenger
  • Monster Trucks Nitro
  • 10x Camera Tools

Top 10 Free iPhone Apps

Top 10 Paid iPad Apps

Top 10 Free iPad Apps

That’s all the list there is. I hope you can find some use with all those apps and utilize them on your iPhone or iPad. Things that caught my eye, there is no Facebook App on iPad, probably because Facebook hasn’t officially launched one yet. But you could FacePad to get rid of your Facebook desires. Enjoy these Apps.

Samsung Galaxy S users, it’s time to rejoice, connect your phone to the computer and update the old battered Android 2.1 to shiny new and updated Android 2.2.1. But, there’s a catch here. According to Galaxy users in Sweden, they are able to upgrade their phones via the desktop application Samsung Kies and they say that an upgrade to Android Froyo is available for download.

That is a serious problem don’t you think, as only Sweden is enjoying the Android 2.2.1 on their Galaxy S and people everywhere else are still complaining that their phones are getting slower and giving issues. Of course, the Android 2.1 is quite buggy and old now, and a new upgrade was much needed and awaited by users all around the world.

Samsung has finally began to roll out the updates and soon everyone will be able to get their Galaxy S performing faster with the Android 2.2.1. The new update supposedly fixes some security loopholes and some lagging problems that the old OS used to cause on the Galaxy S.

For more information you could visit the Swedroid website where many users who have already upgraded to the Android 2.2.1 are saying that it has made the phone faster and better performing than before. Soon all the other Samsung Galaxy S based devices will be getting this upgrade. We’ll keep you updated on that.

The Sony Ericsson’s Playstation phone has been around the internet from quite a while now, a phone that was going to have a slide out gaming keypad instead of a regular QWERTY keyboard.

And yes it’s true, the Playstation dubbed phone from Sony Ericsson will be officially known as the Xperia Play and now there are pictures and videos to prove that it’s official. This will be one of those unique Sony Ericsson phones, which obviously won’t sell as much as a normal smartphone but will be a rare one that people will want to know more about.

So what’s special about this new Xperia, well first of all it’s huge, although it has the same screen size as the Xperia X10, but has some unique features that makes it a gaming device as well. A challenge for the the Nintendo then? Let’s see what the specifications tell ;

  • A 4 inch Capacitive Display with a native resolution of 854 x 480 pixels
  • A 1 GHz Qualcomm processor with the Adreno 205 Image processor for awesome gaming.
  • Will be running the Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with Android Market and Playstation Pocket App
  • Internal memory of 315MB with a MicroSD expansion slot, expandable up to 32GB.
  • 5 megapixel camera, no HD recording but HD playback is available
  • A slide out Game Keypad that resembles the Playstation Controller.

The Playstation Pocket App will connect you to the Playstation website from where you’ll be able to download games on to the Xperia Play and enjoy playstation like graphics on the go, you can also make a call or text someone in between. The Pocket App is not yet live as the phone hasn’t officially been launched yet. We’ll keep you informed on the launch date and the pricing etc. Till then enjoy the video review below by ePrice.

The phone will be mostly revealed at the Mobile World Congress next month that’s taking place at Barcelona.
