    Thumbs up iPhone 2G 1611 Error FIX!!

    Okay, I just got an iPhone 2G for my wife. (Didn't want to shell out the cash for the 3G or 3Gs) Anyway, she attempted to jailbreak the phone herself with out my help, bad idea. She accidentally updated the phone to fimware 3.1.3 before attempting a jailbreak with blackra1n. When I got ahold of it it was stuck at the "connect to iTunes" screen. I tried a restore and got error 1611!!!! And I looked EVERYWHERE for a solution to this problem and found a lot of stuff but none worked for me. Lots of people were saying that this is a hardware issue, but with no warranty, I was just about to give up when I tried this...


    1. Put phone in DFU mode.
    2. Most important part right here, this is what fixed it for me. Go into control panel\administrative settings\services.
    3. When you get to services, make sure that apple mobile device AND bonjour service is ON and started. My Bonjour service was disabled on BOTH of my computers for some reason and my phone would not restore and that is what fixed it. I think Bonjour may be one of those services that doesn't come pre-started. I had to manually start mine on both machines. After I did that, I hooked the phone up in DFU mode and told iTunes to do a restore and just walked away, couldn't stand to be disappointed again. When I came back, THERE IS WAS!!! The progress bar on the phone was MOVING!! So give this a try before you beat the phone with a hammer


    Hope this helps anyone and everyone!!

    i found this on the internet:

    I was stuck with this 1611 error and my iphone was stuck in recovery mode..I thought my iphone was bricked but remembered a dope application called tinyumbrella which has a feature that allows you to kick your iphone out of recovery mode.

    Anyway download tiny umbrella filename "umbrella-4.02.04.exe" from google. No need to install anything. Run it, plug iphone in it..let it do its thing and then click "boot out of recovery".

    worked for me after hrs of fighting with it
    i have an ipod touch 4g (no jailbreak, retail)

    Your such a legend!!! It worked for my iphone 4. I just bought it and tried to restore it and it wouldnt work. it kept coming up with error 1611 then i finally soldered the battery connector on properly cause it was a bit loose, then tried restoring it again, and restored with no problem.

    WHO DOES THIS APPLY TO : IPHONE v1 (2g) ..
    SYMPTOMS OF THE PROBLEM :

    1. iphone shows apple logo when connected to cable
    2. Iphone shuts off immediately after cable is removed
    3. Itunes shows error 1611 while in restore mode, trying to restore
    4. itunes shows error 1604 while in Dfu mode, trying to restore.

    dont worry phone is not bricked/ not all is lost

    Also may not apply to all cases..

    i had two iphones with the same problem as stated above .. searched everywhere including hackintosh ... got no real solution ... except some soldering of capacitors / or soldering battery wires with connectors... tried all but did not work

    SOLUTION ... was very elementary ... head over to ifixit for a guide on how to open the iphone

    next......... get hold of a spare oem battery ( i got mine for 11$ shipped)

    simply replace the battery

    while resoldering the terminals

    be sure to go in the following order

    black then white then red...

    (also make sure you unplug the connector which connects to the switches on the back panel)

    THE ABOVE FIXED BOTH IPHONES ..... I FOUND OUT FROM REPAIR techs... THEY WERE ASKING FOR 150$ I GOT MINE DONE FOR 11$

    PLUS I HAD OTHER STUFF LYING AROUND soldering equip/ etc

    i made this guide cuz i found no concrete solution and my phones were lying for a while just dead

Hope this helps guys. Cheers
    Solution for Error 1611 :
    1- Change the USB port the phone is plugged in to. Do not plug the phone back in yet.
    2- Reboot the computer then plug the phone in and immediately restart the phone in DFU WHILE CONNECTED to the computer.
    3- Hit restore iPhone from backup files.

    I can confirm that this works... I was getting error 1611 when restoring my old iPhone 2G and I tried on two different computers. When I replaced the battery everything worked perfectly and I restored my iPhone without any errors
