    Default iPhone 3G with ERROR 1604 -- Will not restore...AT ALL.

    I've tried EVERY SINGLE METHOD, and no solution to this ERROR 1604. I've tried on 4 different PC's (windows xp and vista). Several different versions of iTunes. Trying to restore a factory ipsw downloaded directly from apple... twice.

    Get iphone in DFU mode, itunes see's it, shift click to restore 2.2 on iphone 3g (this is a factory ipsw). It starts, I get the apple logo with spinning wheel, and after several minutes itunes reports back error 1604 every time.

    HELP.........

    I have tried everything listed. And in fact I know that this same pc, itunes installation, and ipsw file will restore on other iphones. I've jailbroken, restored, unlocked a bunch of them.

    BUT THIS PHONE IS STUBBORN AND I DON'T KNOW WHY!

    Bump....

    I'm STILL trying to get this iPhone 3G to restore. It will not boot, always goes to itunes cable screen. When I enter DFU mode and try to restore iTunes hangs at preparing iphone for restore screen, and iphone stays on silver apple and spinning wheel, until iTunes finally craps out and gives me a 1604 error... after several minutes.

    I'll repeat, the ipsw is directly from apple, its a known good file, and install of iTunes on Windows XP.

    Have you tried completely uninstalling iTunes and re-installing iTunes 8.1?

    Has the phone ever been updated to 2.2.1 firmware? Because if it has and you are trying to restore to 2.2 then you will always get an error because itunes cannot downgrade the baseband.

    This particular iPhone has NEVER had 2.2.1 on it, It is a 2.2 White iPhone 3G, It worked, was unlocked with Yellowsn0w, working fine.

    I restarted it, and it hung on the apple boot logo........... I've reset it (power+home)... I can pretty much get it to go to the itunes cable (trouble) screen or hang on the apple boot logo...But I can't get it to come to a springboard.

    I've tried several versions of iTunes, different ipsw (not 2.2.1 because I need it to be unlockable). *** Please understand: Every PC I've tried will restore OTHER iphones... I know this because I've worked on many (hundreds probably), but this iphone will NOT RESTORE ***

    I'll rewrite and repeat what I've said before.

    This iPhone is currently at 2.2, and unlocked with YS.. It has 02.28 baseband, firmware 2.2. For some reason it will either hang on apple boot screen, or will go to itunes cable restore screen. It will NOT boot fully into a springboard (icons) mode.

    I've put the phone in DFU mode, holding power+home for 10 seconds, releasing power and holding home button. iTunes see's iPhone in DFU mode (screen blank/off on iPhone so it is in DFU mode). I shift click restore, select a FACTORY APPLE DOWNLOADED 2.2 ipsw, then iTunes starts it thing... Extracting ipsw file, puts iPhone in restore mode, I get the silver apple with spinning wheel under it.... iTunes saying preparing iphone for restore --- and the iphone still shows apple and spinning wheel... After several minutes itunes shows ERROR 1604 (every time 1604, never any other error - ALWAYS 1604) and iPhone hangs on apple logo with spinning wheel... After several MORE minutes the iphone will restart and go to trouble itunes cable screen if I leave it alone, or I can reset (home+power) and get it to go to trouble itunes cable screen.

    If I load quickpwn, and it tells me to reset by holding home+power for 15 seconds, then press power for 2 seconds, I can get it to hang on apple boot screen... but again, never get's to a springboard.

    I've tried 4 different PC's (3 winxp and 1 vista) - all with same result. I've uninstalled itunes, re-installed itunes.. I even tried on a FRESH INSTALL OF WINXP and then a fresh install on iTunes! SAME RESULT. That was on a completely FRESH winxp install that had never seen an iPhone before - and I got the exact same result -- ERROR 1604.

    Like I said, I've done TONS of iPhone's... Never had this error before. I have no clue what the deal is, I don't what to do or try anymore. THIS PHONE IS LITTERALLY JUST SITTING ON MY DESK AS A PAPER WEIGHT!

    --- If you can help with advice -- PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!!

    EDIT: I'm not bragging about the quantity of iphones I've worked on, just making it clear I've done this procedure many many times without error, on the same pc's, OS, iTunes and IPSW file's... The issue is with this particular iphone - and not the procedure used or files being used. I've also tried ipsw for 2.0 and 2.1... All apple downloaded and 100% unmodified!

    only just seen this again - if you can get to the apple logo why don't you just disable the timer and let it boot?
