Can’t Exit DFU Mode After Dumping iOS 5.0 SHSH Blobs Using iFaith

Hello, today I was trying to downgrade my iPhone 4 back to stock iOS 5 using iFaith. Before proceeding, I tried to save iOS 5.0 SHSH blobs using iFaith but unfortunately, my iPhone got stuck in DFU mode loop and now I am unable to get out of it. I tried to boot it using Redsn0w’s Just Boot option but no luck. How can I fix this? Thanks a lot!

Hello Weber! Have you successfully managed to dump the SHSH blobs of your iPhone 4? Did you get any error while dumping or restoring your iPhone using iFaith? Are you using the latest version of iFaith? Well, since your iPhone is stuck in DFU mode, you can use the standalone TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) tool to kick your iPhone out of DFU mode loop. To do that, you can follow the tutorial posted below:

Step 1: Download the standalone TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) for Windows using this link or from here if you are rocking a Mac. You will also need to download the Zlib1.dll using this link and save it in the same location where you saved the TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery).

Step 2: Then connect your jailbroken iPhone 4 to your computer and launch the downloaded TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery).

Step 3: Put your iPhone in DFU mode.

  • Press and hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds.
  • Then release Power button after 10 seconds but continue holding the Home button for another 10 seconds.

Step 4: That’s it! All you have to do is to wait while the tool is applying the fix.

Once booted, launch iFaith v1.4 (you can download iFaith 1.4 for Windows using this link) and then follow this guide on how to use iFaith.
