    Hi and welcome to iMore.

    You can't jailbreak your iPhone on iOS 7.1 as one doesn't exist for that OS revision yet.

    In any event we will never charge you for helping you and anyone in good conscience wouldn't take your money even if you offered it as we're passionate about all things Apple. Although I can't speak for everyone, I get a kick out of helping people.

    You've joined the forums and that's a great start. Keep an eye on the jailbreaking forums and if a jailbreak for 7.1 is released, you can bet it will be mentioned here.

    No and no and no and no.

    It's not hard to explain. And even if it were, you should TRY to explain!

    That's not DFU mode. There's your problem. You're doing a hard reset.

    How to Put an iPod or iPhone into DFU Mode: 8 Steps - wikiHow

    If you're having issues doing this, download redsn0w and use it. It holds your hand through putting your phone into DFU mode.

    In the future. Be specific means tell us something we can work with. "It's giving an error" is not specific. "It's giving me an error telling me it's not in DFU mode" is useful. We can't guess which error it's giving you. It wasn't hard to explain. All you had to do was say which error it was giving you. When you make it harder to help you, you'll generally get less of a response.

    You say you're in DFU mode. You can't easily leave DFU mode. If your device is responsive to you at all, you're not in DFU mode. There's your problem. I didn't clarify anything beyond that because it wasn't necessary. What is your phone doing RIGHT NOW when you push the home/lock keys? If it's responding, download redsn0w so the program can hold your hand through the steps. It's obviously new to you. That's the easiest method you're going to find to get into DFU mode.

    I also concur that your phone is definitely not in DFU mode from the video you have shown.

    Plug phone into computer.
    Turn phone off.
    Then read closely and follow exactly
    Hold power for three seconds, while still holding power hold the home button for ten seconds, then release power button but continue to hold home button for an additional 15+ seconds
    Geek snow will take over as soon as phone hits DFU mode only then should you release home button

    Disconnect, power off, hold home, plug in while still holding home, iTunes can say "detected in recovery", bam DFU.

    Also (not sure if I'm allowed to do this, but...):
