My iPhone crashed while it was connected to the computer. I performed synchronization and left the phone so it can recharge. When I looked it after some time I saw Apple logo. I have tried multiple times to reset it (power + home) but every time it just stuck on Apple logo.

After some time I gave up and decided to restore it but even that didn't work. Each time it just stuck on the progress bar. Here are things I have tried:

  • different USB ports
  • different sync. cables
  • different machines (desktop and laptop)
  • windows and mac
  • DFU mode

every time same result.

Bringing iPhone to the Apple store is not an option because I am in a unsupported country without the Apple stores.

Are you absolutely sure you did the DFU correctly? Had you jailbroken the phone before this point? –  hellothere Jul 20 '12 at 0:53
    
As I know DFU mode is when the screen is black and iTunes recognize it and offers restore. Yes, it was jailbroken but this didn't meter before. –  Robert Vuković Jul 29 '12 at 20:13
    
Sometimes depending on how an iPhone is jailbroken or if the jailbreak has a problem, it can result in corrupted firmware, which in some cases can be unrecoverable. –  hellothere Jul 30 '12 at 0:05
    
@hellothere Any reference on that? I don't agree with that. –  Max Ried Aug 26 '12 at 19:01

It's not common but I have seen it happen. Might be due to a faulty phone of course. –  hellothere Aug 26 '12 at 21:38

Try RecBoot from sebby.net for Mac (and Windows).

The RecBoot application lets you put your iPhone into and out of recovery mode easily.
