I'm well aware of what DFU mode does.
When the iphone first came out It had a special icon that was on screen to let the user know they had successfully entered DFU mode. Somewhere near the release of 2.0 they removed the icon so that an iphone in DFU mode would just have a black screen. This did absolutely nothing other than confuse those that didn't know what they were doing because all the instructions available online made reference to a screen with a dock connector and the itunes logo that confirms you are in DFU mode.
