    Try using Snowbreeze. It’s truly a breeze!
    All you need is Snowbreeze and 4.2.1 ipsw.

    Step 1: Open Snowbreeze and click Browse for an IPSW (if you already have a 4.21 restore ipsw. If not, first download the 4.21 ipsw.

    Step 2: Select 4.21 ipsw and follow the instructions.
    Step 3: It should take about less than 5 mins to create a custom ipsw

    Step 4: Open itunes and click Shift + Restore
    Step 5: Choose custom restore ipsw to start restoring

    Your iphone should break out of the recovery mode and work like normal. If need be, download Ultrasnow to unlock.

    Your dibusb0.dll are missing ?

  8. Andrea says:

    The link to download RecBoot for Windows is missing. It says “The key you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on MediaFire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or MediaFire.”

  9. Vidhi says:

    This second solution is bullshit, even if you install everything and run on fixing the error it does not show anything on the iPhone neither does it let the user restore the Original phone settings.

    I am trying first one, lets see if that works. iPhones are the shit of this world.
