  3. Press the home and volume button simultaneously. Keep them pressed for 10 seconds.

  1. Connect the phone to a PC. Check that the PC can detect your phone.
  2. If the PC can detect your phone, turn your phone off. Then, turn your phone back on by holding the home, power and volume up keys.  This should put your phone into download mode.
