SOLVED: [1.1.2] iTunes reports error when trying to upgrade / downgrade (Error 6)
First post here... thanks to all the efforts of people here I have unlocked several 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 phones.
However, in a new twist, I have received a new week 51 phone with 1.1.2 firmware on it and it just refuses to be upgraded / downgraded.
It has not been unlocked / jailbroken / actiavted as of yet. The idea was to upgrade it to 1.1.3 before I could use ZiPhone to activate, jailbreak and unlock it.
Everytime I boot it in Recovery / DFU mode, iTunes recognises it and when I hit the Shift + Restore / just Restore button, it goes upto unpacking and then stops with a message reading "Cannot continue. Unknown Error (6)"
When I do it in DFU mode I get a similar message "Cannot continue. Unknown Error (-7)"
Since it did not upgrade / downgrade successfully, I decided to give ZiPhone a shot and just use it as an Unlocked and Activated 1.1.2 phone, but that didn't work. It says it'll take 2.30 minutes and just doesn't do anything after that.
I am at my wit's end trying to get this to work. When I use iBrikr and kick it out of Recovery Mode, I am able to go through all the steps listed to jailbreak the phone after downgrading it... meaning I can use the *#307# then 0 etc... right upto the point of AppSnap which obviously doesn't install as this is 1.1.2 while AppSnap was designed for 1.1.1
Any help would be greatly appreciated
I am using the latest version of iTune (7.6) Infact I upgraded to 7.6 after having the same error in 7.5
