How to Exit DFU Mode for iPhone/iPad/iPod touch?

DFU, shorted for Device Firmware Update, is a mode that supports your device to interact with iTunes without loading the OS or boot loader. When your device is in this mode, you may want to downgrade/upgrade iOS version, jailbreak the phone, or unlock the SIM card. In DFU mode, your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch's screen will display in black (totally different from the Recovery Mode, which will show iTunes logo), and any operation to iDevice is responseless.
