    Default HELP: iPhone 4 stuck in DFU mode, error 1004

    Hi, I hope you guys can help me out with my iPhone 4.

    * iTunes version: 10.1.0.54
    * iPhone OS version: 4.0.1 jailbroken and unlocked
    * Platform: Windows 7

    I bought it second hand and it was running 4.0.1 and was jailbroken with jailbreakme.com and unlocked with UltraSnow.

    As soon as I got it, I did a factory reset from the phone itself. The phone however never booted again from it - it shows the apple for several seconds, then turns off - it is essentially stuck in a never-boot state.

    I put it in Recovery mode and tried to restore it in iTunes - no luck as I soon found out Apple no longer allowed restoring to firmwares older than the current one.

    I put the phone into DFU mode and tried again - no luck.

    I then tried with TinyUmbrella - I have no idea whether Cydia has caught the SHSHblobs for this iPhone while it was in the hands of the previous owner but turning the TSS server mode in Tiny Umbrella helped me get through the verification process with the Apple servers.

    A step after that however iTunes failed the restore with Error 1600/1604. I serched for it and saw the only solution that could potentially help me was a program called iREB.

    I used it successfully to get the iPhone into what it called PWNED DFU mode and successfully got past the 1600 mistake. Whoa!

    This time I ALMOST pulled it off. iTunes obviously installed the firmware successfully but at some point while it was "Verifying iPhone restore", it gave out Error 1004.

    So far I've had no luck in fixing that one and pretty much I'm stuck with no options. What's worse, the handset is stuck in DFU mode too and I can't get it out with no key combo I found mentioned online.

    So essentially, my iPhone 4 is now stuck in DFU mode and iTunes fails my restore to 4.0.1 with an error 1004. Any ideas?

    Here's my iTunes Update Log
    log@pastebin

    P.S. The only suggestion I found was that this was caused by using TinyUmbrella during the restore. Any suggestions that I should use TinyUmbrella to "Kick Device Out Of Recovery" are of no use, as the EXIT RECOVERY button is grayed out during the whole restore process. I also CAN'T revert my hosts file to the default as I need the apple.com redirect that TinyUmbrella adds to get me through the initial check with Apple servers.

    I called the previous owner today and what he told me is that the iPhone was actually on iOS 4.0 (not 4.0.1) prior to the factory reset we did.
    And all this time I've been trying to restore it to 4.0.1 - I don't know if that's to blame.

    Even if Cydia grabbed his SHSH - it was for 4.0, not for 4.0.1. I still don't know if his SHSH blobs are saved - nothing shows up in TinyUmbrella.

    Today I tried the same procedure above with 4.0 - still no luck:
    - iREB to get into PWNED DFU (to evade error 1600)
    - TinyUmbrella TSS server on (to bypass initial authorization with Apple servers)
    - iTunes Shift+Restore (pick 4.0)
    - And... I get error 1004 at Verifying iPhone restore (about two thirds along the way of the loading bar on the iPhone screen)

    Here's the new iTunes Update log:

    hi

    1) are you familiar with using tiny umbrella to preserve the base band?
    2) edit your hosts (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) or /etc/hosts (Mac OS X)) and point it to Cydia server manually ( 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com) ( hopefully it auto generates shsh blogs for you. )
    3) download stock 4.01 and 4.1 and restore it ....

    4) i suggest you tried 4.1 first ...

    5) hold sleep/home contentiously to put your device into recovery mode ... don't need dfu mode it should be fine

    6) if you get error 1004 use tiny umbrella to kick start your device

    hope that helps

    Same issue here, used IReb to bypass error 1600-16044

    phone is stuck in DFU mode.
    Funny thing I can used Ireb again before changing to any other ios without any errors. If I dont use IReb, I get an error 1600.

    I managed to get an error free installation but the phone remains in DFU mode. Only step done on windows is running iReb.

    1 - Create Custom 4.1 image from PwnageTool. (previous ios 4.0.1). Unchecked upgrade baseband
    2- Run IReb on DFU mode (whatever that software does)
    3- Run TinyUmbrella with my saved SHSH
    4- Open Itunes
    5- Plug in the phone. It is detected by itunes in recovery mode.
    6- Ran the custom ios from above.
    7 - Installation completed successfully and it says will reboot phone at the end.
    8 - Phone still in DFU

    I have run out of ideas. Whatever Ireb is doing seems to be the issue.

    From a quick look at the restore log i'd agree that your restore fails because you are using cached SHSH (via Tiny Umbrella) - Apple has long since stopped signing 4.0 or 4.0.1

    The iPhone 4 includes an extra SHSH request to sign the baseband files during restore. This SHSH signature cannot be cached because Apple got smart and included a random number as part of the input to the signature.

    So.. your restore failure is due to not being able to validate and flash the baseband. This should normally be fixed via the exit recovery mode option in TinyUmbrella, iREB, iRecovery and recboot all provide similar features.

    I'm assuming you have tried one of these options. I'm puzzled as to why it's not working.

    Also DFU mode means - screen is black, I doubt you have a black screen at the point when you get the 1004 error. Most likely you are stuck at the "connect to iTunes" screen.

    If I used the cooked IPSW from PwnageTool, I get no 1004 error when upgrading from 4.01 to 4.1 but the damn thing is still stuck in DFU

    Default similar story

    I am in the same (well, pretty much the same) boat as you. I tried to restore to a custom 4.1 from 4.0.2 (had no shsh blobs available), and now I'm stuck in DFU. The custom firmware installs completely but the thing is stuck in DFU (tried many different versions, different itunes, everything I can think of).

    ***as another note, it is a black screen.. indicating dfu correct?

    I'm still puzzled by your reference to DFU mode. I repeat - you end up with the screen black - but it is on.

    Well as far as mine is concerned, I turn on TU and restore to a custom 4.1 with NO errors. itunes says its complete and the phone is restarting, but the screen never comes back from the black screen and itunes says its found an iphone in restore mode.

    I am sure its in dfu and that its on, because when I use ireb to enter "pwned dfu" I don't push any buttons and iReb pops up the the pwned dfu mode confirmation screen.

    This is somewhat strange. I need to see your restore log.
