DFU – Pwned DFU – Soft DFU – iPhones Demystified

If you’ve got an iPhone and have had to jailbreak it… chances are you’ve come across DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) mode.

But if you’ve been unlucky enough to have had problems with your iPhone and have taken it upon yourself to try and fix it… then you have surely come across not only DFU mode but also Pwned DFU mode and even the more obscure Soft DFU mode!

But are they different?

In some aspects, they are entirely the same.
