    Unhappy [1.1.4][iLiberyty+]Phone undetected and black screen after error 1601

    hi..
    Long time lurker here. so had this iphone 3.9 BL with 1.1.4 baseband 04.04.05 unlocked activated and jailborken with iLiberty (No BootNeuter involved) and then the Pwnage 2.0 got released. So thought i'd try pwnage. got the custom firmware off torrents, pwnage tool and everythin and installed Bootneuter to reverse the iLiberty changes. Did that: flashed just the baseband to remove the unlock and then was restoring to 1.1.4 stock from iTunes 7.6.2. Was almost done (guess it was in the verification screen and towards the last part of it) when the stupid iTunes updated itself to 7.7 killing the 7.6.2 version. Now the phone was stuck in the black screen and would not respond. So updated to iTunes 7.7 and tried another restore (at this point guess the phone was recognised as in DFU by iTunes. it just said the phone was in restore mode). Got error 1601.
    Now for the real fun. Tried iLiberty+, kIphone, Ziphone. Nothing would recognise the phone. Tried to go back to itunes 7.5. It also would not recognise the phone. So got a macbook with itunes 7.7 and once more restored to firmware 2.0. again 1601. Now even 7.7 wont recognise the phone. If i keep on pressing the Sleep button windows pops up sayin an unrecognised USB device detected.

    Do i have a brick here? Any ideas or suggestions?
    Searched and looked through all 1601 threads. no help there.

    Thanks in advance.

    Angry

    Yes please help. I found this via search. If anyone has any thoughts as to which link we should take to proceed, it would be much appreciated!

    I have week 47 1.1.2, unlocked activated and jailbroken via ziphone (one time only).

    Two days ago, I updated to 1.1.4 via iLiberty+, and boot neuter. All was perfect! Should have kept it that way, darn it!

    I am using windows, so after reading how you can do a winpwn and then install the new firmware via 7.7, I installed 7.7. ran winpwn (do not know if I did that correct, but all was still fine) put the phone in DFU and ran restore using shift to the new custom ipsw. got error 5. tried it again, received the error that the restore failed with code 1601, then 1602 then 1601 again and the phone is dark, like the night. Itunes 7.7 sees it, but iLiberty, winpwn, and even ibricker do not see it!

    Any thoughts please? Please?? Should I try to downgrade it again? But if the apps do not recognize it, then what to do?

    I love my iPhone.

    thank you.

    Exclamation

    I have rolled back iTunes to 7.5. When I plug in the iPhone to the dock, windows tells me there is an error and this is an unsupported device.

    I am not able to make contact with the iPhone via the dock, usb cable and it is still completely black.

    Any thoughts? HELP!!!!!!!

    Thank you.

    I am willing to make a paypal donation!

    Smile

    I finally solved my dilemma. What a pain. The phone was stuck in dfu and would not exit! iTunes would not see it..

    I ended up installing iTunes 7.5 on three different computers. The last one (it has a previous version 6 on it for iTunes) actually recognized my iPhone and allowed me to restore to 1.1.4 and after that, iLiberty+ came to the rescue. Since I had used boot neuter before, I selected 3.9FB as an option. I am working again.

    week 47.
    1.1.2 jailbroken and working on T-Mobile with Ultrasim
    Unlocked with ziphone 1.0
    upgraded to 1.1.4
    unlocked with iL:iberty+

    gotta love it!

    Default same problem

    Hi guys

    My friend gave me this iPhone. I am pretty sure it has the same problem as you guys are facing.... So I would appreciate some pointers since you have been through all of this.

    Symptoms:
    Black screen (no apple logo)
    iTunes wont detect when connected
    only detected if put in DFU mode
    ZiPhone, iDemocracy, iLiberty etc... no one detects the phone even when put in DFU mode.


    Restored using iTunes 7.5 to firmware (1.1.1 , 1.1.4 and 2.0) every time got the same error 1601


    My problem is that I dont know the history of the phone. So havent got a clue what firmware it was on, what bootloader it had or whats the status of the baseband.

    So, now I am updating my iTunes to 7.6.1.9 since the last post said that he succeeded in getting his iPhone restored using iTunes 7.6 if im not mistaken.


    Any suggestions would be much appreciated from phatdaddy1960 & yeehaa (or anyone else out there listening)


    Cheers

    Dear Jazz,

    Understand. My theory, which is probably wrong, is there is some type of conflict between the apple mobile device drivers and the pawned or bootneutered phone. I went to a fresh imaged windows xp laptop and placed 7.5 on it and it did not work. i had another older laptop that had a version 6.xxx on it and when I upgraded it to the 7.5, with the other stuff (but ensured it did not automatically update) then I was finally successful in placing a 1.1.4 image on the iphone.

    On my primary pc, I uninstalled, rebooted, installed , rebooted, and tried this over and over again, to no avail. I guess I may have just been lucky to succeed. Of note, on my primary pc, I got to the point where I was getting an error that my usb device was hosed. I recall reading George Holtz has released a dfu tool. You may wish to try that. That was released right after I was able to get 1.1.4 back onto my phone.

    Good luck Jazz. Do not give up. Your phone is not dead. It is just experiencing some compatibility issue with iTunes and is locked in a dfu mode.

    Mike
