I want to download the latest iOS but iTunes will not see my iPhone. I have the latest iTunes software but my iPhone is jailbroken. I'm having too many issues, so I want to restore, against my best judgment. :(

Do I have to put my iPhone in DFU mode? I want to download the latest iPhone software first. Is there a way to do that without connecting my iPhone?

1. Yes.
2. You can do that, but you don't have to. iTunes will download it once recognized. If you still want to, go here. The phone does not need to be connected.
