stuck in dfu with itunes error 4005
Ok so nearly two weeks ago i plugged my phone into the headphone jack of some old stereo system my uncle has, i was trying to set it up and in the process the phone fell out of my hand, i was sitting down so it was about a 2-3 foot drop. i picked the phone up and it was on the boot up screen (white background and Black apple), it was taking abnormally long to boot up so i held the home and power button, which i now know was a TERRIBLE idea. fast forward to the present and the phone is stuck in DFU mode, when i try to restore it the screen turns on with a black background and white apple and then iTunes gets stuck on "waiting for iPhone" and gives me the error 4005. I've tried changing the USB cable, changing the USB port, using a different windows PC and even a mac, all with the latest version of iTunes and no it was not a host file thing. I've tried every software solution that my research has brought me and the problem still persists so that leads me to believe it's a hardware issue so i'm wondering what part is it that i have to replace to fix it, i'm a bit of a tinkerer and i'd rather avoid getting price gouged at a repair shop. Sorry if the post was too much of a read but i figured it'd be best to provide all the details. Thank you in advance for any and all help
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
I had the same... and a technician told me that most of the time it is due to a faulty "cheek detector" the one that turns off the screen when taking the phone to the ear. I worked right on the minute he changed it.

I could fix error 4005 on my iTunes/iPhone following these steps:
- disconnect iPhone from PC
- close iTunes
- PC > Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Apple Mobile Device Support
- Apple Mobile Device Support > repair
- Wait 1 minute.
- disconnect all USB devices currently not used
- connect iPhone using original USB cable, connected DIRECTLY to the PC, no external USB Hub
- start iTunes
- iTunes should ask to recover the iPhone > recover
If they don't work, read this guide.
The instructions given by StevenS worked for my iphone 8 plus on Win 10 64-bit OS. I was using a usb hubconnected to my pc. I plugged the cable straight into the pc and rebooted the pc. Started iTunes and chose "Update". Worked like a charm.

The same for me. The instructions that StevenS gave worked for me also. Thank you Steven. I greatly appreciate it.

Hi; thankyou for this information, it gave me somewhere to start. I had the same issue but with an iPhone 8. Fixing the Mobile Device Support program didn't do the job for me, however. I tried everything with my HP Spectre (Gen 1), including using a brand new virgin cable, but it must be something specfic to my computer's configuration. In the end I was able to use my brother's computer to do a factory reset, and then do a backup from my computer.
