Photon stuck in DFU mode

Hey guys, I need your help i have been using a photon for a couple of months now and it has been working well until the day before yesterday. firstly it was stuck in white mode and i kept on researching here in forum until i managed to take it to DFU mode and now i cannot take it out from this mode, It continues to blink yellow and i cannot get in any other mode. Here’s what i have tried so far:

  1. Tried to get into safe mode, when I see the magenta LED and and release the setup button, it promptly starts fast blinking yellow.
    2). Used “particle update" in CLI but the error message appear “Error occurred while attempting to update the system firmware of your device”.
    3)“Particle device doctor” i still get the error message "“Error occurred while attempting to update the system firmware of your device”.
    4)Tried to update the firmware to 0.7.0 and it successfully update but still goes back to flashing yellow even after i press reset button

What host OS are you using?
Do you get more info when running particle update -v?
What do you get running dfu-util --list?
Can you try a different USB cable and/or port?
What do you get with particle flash --usb tinker -v?

I am using windows 8.1.

When i run particle update -v this is what i get

C:\Users\Bigmahn>particle update -v

Your device is ready for a system update.
This process should take about 50 seconds. Here it goes!

That output suggests you haven’t got the required drivers installed.
How does your Photon show up in Device Manager?

device%20manager

That looks fine, so the issue must be rooted somewhere else.
What version CLI have you got (particle --version) - most recent is 1.40.0

particle%20version

Yah well i am using the most recent one too 1.40.0

I hope my photon isn’t broken though because i am pretty sure i did not do any harm on it, it just went to solid white on its own and i had to try to troubleshoot it where i have managed to take it back to DFU mode just so i can trobleshoot it easily.

I have been running this photon to switch on the OLED and use it as a user interface so my job was to upload the code via WiFi but then i have several photons that have the same firmware and the firmware is running very well on other photons meaning i can’t say it’s a firmware that broke it because all of my photons are in one fleet so i just push the firmware to all of them at once.
