How do I get my jailbroken iPhone out of DFU Mode?

I’ve gotten the black screen and can’t get out of it. It all started when I restored and tether jailbroke my phone on iOS 4.3.5 using redsn0w 0.9.10b after a recovery screen malfunction. I used PwnageTool, redsn0w and TinyUmbrella with SHSH blobs.

The phone worked fine and I began downloading tweaks from Cydia (SBSettings, iFile, Android Lock XT). At this point I realized the respring screen displayed a pinapple rather than the usual waiting animation. Didn’t make much deal out of it until I downloaded OpenSSH and was prompted for a reboot, not considering the outcomes. I pressed “Reboot Device” and was gifted with the DFU (black screen). I’ve tried for days to get it out of the mode.

First, hoping for the apple display I tried,
Pressing the Power button for several seconds, simultaneously holding Power and Home, releasing Power (no luck)

Then restoring using:
– TinyUmbrella > Start TSS Server
– redsn0w >Pwned DFU
– iTunes > Restore 4.3.5

Did this several times. Still stuck with the black display. I’m not exactly sure what to do and would prefer to solve this issue without updating and restoring through iTunes on the current firm/baseband. All help and advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Its very easy to come out of DFU or Recovery mode. Just hold down your Power and Home button both for 12 seconds then release just the Home button until the Apple Logo shows up on your screen. Once it does, release the power button as well and wait for your device to boot up as usual

    Try upgrading it then just wait for the untethered jailbreak to come out.

    I am having trouble finding a concise answer for you, I am weeding through SEVERAL forums trying to find to best answer... no luck yet. I have for quiet a few forums talking about the same as ha14 comment.

    Also, you don't want to completely delete that entry... You may want to set it back to Apples IP.

    iPhone users updated to iOS 4.3.5 or iOS 4.3.4 by mistake so those who don’t have saved SHSH blobs of older firmwares are really stuck on the current iOS. You won’t be able to jailbreak 4.3.5 untethered or downgrade 4.3.5 without SHSH blobs.????

    What does iTunes do when you plug it in? Does iTunes give you a error half way through the restore, If it does what is the error?

    I think the first thing I do sense you have TinyUmbrella is, I would clear the .Hosts file in TinyUmbrella, and then try to restore the phone using iTunes, use what ever firmware you want as long as it is stock for this restore.

      I get errors 1013, 1600, and 1. Restoring several times with different errors each restore. The phone works as I can hear the connection to the computer via USB or charging sounds, just the screen stays blank.

        Have you tried clearing hosts file in TinyUmbrella? Did it work?
        The Easiest Way:Under the Advanced tab, and then click Clear .Hosts file.
