My iPhone 7 is stuck in DFU mode and I cannot restore it via iTunes due to error code 6 and error code 9. Any way around this? Without third party software?
Thanks.

Are you trying to restore it to 10.2.1? Or are you selecting a IPSW?

Just trying to factory restore it, I'm
in the public beta at the minute not sure if that's anything to do with it.

Nah, not if you're restoring via DFU Mode.

There's only 2 things I could think of:
  1. Uninstall and reinstall iTunes.
  2. You have something blocking their server in your hosts file.

I'll check to see if there is anything blocking it then, I get to the point where iTunes says "waiting on iPhone" and reboots my device with a progress bar but then it looses connection it seems, I'll try another laptop soon. Thanks.

Had a try at that this morning, didn't make a difference. Gonna try another laptop soon, thanks!

Update - disabled my Antivirus and tried again, didn't work. Refreshed my hosts file, that didn't work either. Tried another laptop still didn't work: decided to book an appointment at a Genius Bar next Monday.

Yeah it still isn't working, decided to get in touch with Apple and they've said I need to bring it in
And did you? Also, did they fix it?
