[problem] iTunes 8.2.1 "not compatible" with 3.0 FW? Error 1641 when Restoring.
Hey everyone... I'm working on my first go at all this, I'm living abroad, using an unlocked 2G with 2.2 FW with my Mac.
I'm wanting to upgrade to 3.0 so I followed the proper iClarified article... Updated my iTunes to the current 8.2.1 (couldn't find just 8.2 for mac online anywhere) but when Option-Clicking "Restore" and selecting the "iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw" I get an error message "The iPhone could not be restored because the firmware file is not compatible." I believe the first time I tried this it gave me error 1641 and linked me here: Update and restore error messages on iPhone and iPod touch .
I've tried going into DFU mode and restoring, but iTunes just bugged me trying to make me download THEIR 3.0 FW and telling me that I have to restore the iPhone before using because I put it into DFU mode. I've tried different usb cables, different usb ports.
The phone is still working, so I'm going to finally go to bed and work on this more tomorrow, but any advice? Has 8.2.1 made a problem that 8.2 didn't? Can I find 8.2 for Mac anywhere? Oldapps isn't supplying Mac versions anymore.
Maybe I'm way off. Come to my aid!
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate the helpfulness found on these boards.
