    The instructions you have given are to put the phone into recovery mode, which the picture you have put up also shows, but the article is supposed to be about putting the phone into DFU mode which is different. To put the phone into DFU mode, plug the phone in to the computer, turn it off, after it is off press the power button for 3 seconds, after 3 seconds press the home button whilsts keeping your finger on the power button for 10 seconds, then release the power button whilst still pressing the home button for up to 10 seconds until the phone goes into DFU mode.
