yes this error is normal, it means you are doing something wrong.Quote:
Error 1604 - Device was not pwned (signature checks were not blocked). Custom firmware can't be restored.
You have a 3GS - and you haven't stated the two most important pieces of information (after what type of iPhone you have and what iOS version it is running).
These two vital pieces of information that you failed to supply:
- new or old bootrom? http://www.theiphonewiki.com/wiki/in...ootrom_version and
- do you have a SHSH for iOS 4.1?
Also important - especially as you mentioned iREB, where did the custom IPSW come from? Pwnagetool 4.1.2? sn0wbreeze v??
Uploading kernel may be a separate problem. I've not seen enough information to determine why this occcurs for some people and if it is related to the other issues you have experienced (which to be honest appear to be mostly self-inflicted due to lack of understanding of the complexities of jailbreaking)
Give the phone at least 30 minutes, to be sure that the battery has gone above 5% charge. Then try again.

i do not have the shsh for ios 4.1, i download the custom firmware from a page in the internet, now, i was able to restore it with custom 4.2.1, jailbroke it,unlocked it and everything was working fine and then like 8 hours later the screen just turns black for no reason going back to dfu mode, the battery had a full charge, so i use redsnow to boot tethered and i get the white screen followed by the yellow screen again, i feel when the phone boots up cuz it vibrates since is connected to the computer, i run my finger through where the slider is and i see the screen flash but is still a yellow screen, what can i do?
The way i fixed it last time was i took the battery out for about 2 hours, put it back in, assembled the phone back and restored it and everything went smooth. I tried downgrading to custom 4.1 but i got error 1604 so i had to restore back to custom 4.2.1 which is giving me this problem
The 4.2.1 3GS custom IPSW simply will not work properly on a new bootrom 3GS.
This is why we recommend extreme caution and a 4.1 SHSH when evaluating whether or not to upgrade to 6.15 (iPad) baseband *on a new bootrom 3GS.*
The text you need to look for in the drop-down list is: "Device Instance Path", however if you have a non english version of windows, the text might be translated to your local language (and I don't have a list of translated values for this entry)
Follow the instructions at this page exactly.
Bootrom - The iPhone Wiki
this is what i get when the phone is in dfu mode
is that old or new bootroom?
