    Default DFU restore gives itunes error 9, unable to restore or jailbreak/unlock

    I am attempting to unlock/jailbreak a 8gb original (non-3g) iphone. The phone is a friends of a friend of my sisters. The original owner got a 3g back in July, discarded this one (into the closet) at that time (iphone not updated to 2.0+, presumably?), until my sisters friend decided she wanted to unlock it. Not sure what she used but she attempted on a Mac. She did mention random-sounding websites so she may have ended up with something sketchy. She states that after all kinds of problems she was able to get it to work but only for an hour. After about an hour, it kicked into what I can only deem a perpetual restore mode.

    I attempted to update/downgrade to different firmware versions (itunes-downloaded and shift-restore) but itunes always hangs on "waiting for iphone." A DFU restore attempt to 2.0 or 2.2 gives me an itunes "error 9" shutdown. Yes, I am sure I am in DFU mode and not just basic restore - I have used the http://limitededitioniphone.com/how-...into-dfu-mode/. Anyone know what error 9 means?


    I have attempted all of this using itunes 7.5, 7.7 and 8.0.2, and frequent uninstalls and re-installs.

    When I look at the itunes updater logs, I consistently see that the process gets stuck at Operation 28 (it says Operation 28 progress -1). Anyone know what this means?

    Occasionally, an attempt with winpwn to 2.0.0 will work. However, as soon as I use cydia the iphone will crash and go back into perpetual restore mode. I have attempted Quickpwn but cant get too far because it often crashes at various stages.

    Anyone have any thoughts? I have invested about 30 hours into this process without much results; any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. regards, dan

    Another thing I frequently see in the updater logs, towards the beginning of the file:

    unable to open device_map.txt: No such file or directory

    Should this be like that?

    thanks again.

    I upgraded two phones and constantly got the error 9. I rebooted and tried again each time it failed and it would stop at various stages. I think in the end I found that itunes 8 would only restore the phone if it was plugged into one particular usb port (and not the others, don't ask me why.. makes no sense). Eventually it just went through and then I quickpwn'd them both.

    Anyone have any ideas on this? She took it back from me in December because "her cousin knows how to unlock", but of course, I have it back now. I have tried everything;dfu and recovery mode, xp, vista, osx, numerous versions itunes, installs and uninstalls of itunes, uninstalling the iphone updater, to no avail. Anyone have thoughts on the update log shown? It seems that the problem is with opening the device_map.txt file.

    no it's not the device_map.txt file, because yesterday i DFU restored my iphone to 2.2.1 and when i checked the log, i got the same thing, i.e "2009-01-31 20:18:20.438 iTunes.exe[5700:132c]: unable to open device_map.txt: No such file or directory", it is something else. I think it is a hardware issue, but that is just a wild guess i hope someone can help u to make things clear.

    cheers
