  1. Hold down the home button and the lock button at the same time.

  2. Keep holding them down until you see the Apple logo then release the buttons and you should be finished!

  • From tinyUmbrella-site: In order for the ‘Fix Recovery’ button to be enabled you must put your device in DFU. – Rob Feb 4 '14 at 7:10

Try holding down the power and the home button until the screen turns white, then let go and it should reboot

  1. Make sure that the device is NOT connected anywhere via a USB cable
  2. Hold down the Home button and the Power button at the same time for 10 seconds. (or until you see your iDevice booting up regularly).

If that does not help, make sure to leave your iDevice to charge for at least an hour and try the above procedure again.
