Okay, I read the stickies and searched the threads but I haven't found a solution. I bought a used 2G on eBay. I have no idea what firmware is on the phone. The battery was disconnected and I replaced it. After that, there is no display. The phone will charge, but no sound or display. iTunes (current version) will recognize a phone in recovery mode but wil not display a serial # or firmware version. When I try to restore, I get the "1601" error. Quickpwn won't open on my computer (Vista) and Redsn0w gets stuck in "waiting for reboot. " Winpwn and Quickpwn GUI won't work. I may not have connected the large ribbon that connects to the motherboard correctly, but it is my understanding that 1601 is a software issue. I also got a 1611 & 1604 error but I don't remember what program I was using. I've also tried winusb and a couple other programs I can't remember. Anyone have any suggestions?
