    Question Attempting to restore without upgrading

    I have an iPhone 3G that I am preparing to sell. It was loaded with iOS 4.0.1 and modem firmware 05.13.04.

    I had jailbroken the phone with jailbreakme.com, then unlocked it by installing ultrasn0w through the Cydia app.

    The problem - I tried to wipe the phone clean through [Settings] - [Reset] - [Erase All Content and Settings]. Now the phone will not boot up, I get stuck on the white Apple screen.

    I do not appear to have any backups stored on my main iTunes computer (Mac). Probably they got wiped out when I set up my new iPhone 4. However I am a novice so I may be overlooking something.

    I can put the 3G into recovery mode by holding the HOME button while plugging it into the computer, and I have downloaded the generic 4.0.1 IPSW file from Apple. However when I try to select the 4.0.1 IPSW, I get an error 3194, "unable to authorize restore".

    My setup:

    Windows XP Pro SP3
    iTunes 9.0.3.15
    iPhone OS 4.0.1

    iTunes restore log:
    http://pastebin.com/2MRpXmqc

    In case it helps - The Windows computer is not my primary iTunes computer (that is a Mac Mini). I'm using the Windows computer to attempt restore because I can do ANYTHING necessary here, e.g. install different iTunes versions, wipe out anything, etc. - and it won't affect my new iPhone. I don't need any data from the old phone, just trying to get it to a clean 4.0.1 where it can be jailbroken and unlocked. Prior to the attempt logged above, I tried the same thing on my Mac OSX 10.5 with a somewhat later version of iTunes (still 9.x) with the same result. That computer is at home so I don't have specifics for that attempt.

    Any ideas would be most welcome...

    1. Erase all content and settings - wipes the OS, you need to completely restore it.
    2. You need a SHSH to restore to 4.0.1 via iTunes - Apple has stopped issuing SHSH for 4.0.1 and will only issue them currently for restores to 4.1


    As you have a 3G, the SHSH requirement is actually only enforced by iTunes (unlike the 3GS and higher, where this is enforced in hardware on the iPhone) so in theory it can be bypassed on the 3G - I don't know how though - except on linux

    Options:

    1. Custom IPSW (4.0 or 4.1 only as Pwnagetool doesn't support any other 4.0.x versions).

    The iDeviceRestore is the method you are referring to when you say "except on linux"?

    I have a spare box that I can install Linux on, but my background is Windows. Some Solaris from ~15 years ago and Xenix from ~20+ years ago probably doesn't help much. I think I'm better off just installing 4.1 and selling it like that, probably won't hurt the value enough to justify learning Linux :-{
