Stuck in DFU Mode -- need help
Hey guys, my friend's iPhone was working fine and now it's stuck in DFU mode, when I turn it on, it's a black screen all the time.
Tried 3.1.2, .3, 4.0, nothing seems to cut it... I've tried on both mac and Windows, and I keep getting errors when restoring, on mac iRecovery doesn't see it so I can't do anything with it...
As soon as I plug it in it says it's in recovery mode and my only option is to do a restore.
When I try to restore I usually get:
The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (6).
I also get error 1604 with 3.1.2 on Mac which doesn't even move the progress bar.
3.1.2 on Windows gives me error (6) also, and the progress bar on the iPhone gets to about 55%.
3.1.3 on Windows gives me error (6) also, and the progress bar on the iPhone gets to about 65%.
4.0 gets the furthest progress bar on the iPhone, but it never goes all the way, and I never get errors 1011, 1013, 1015, which would allow me to use iRecovery, it's always something else.
What can I do/try? What do you suggest?
Update: I guess this is the reason 3.1.2 doesn't work -- Apple stopped signing it... http://www.hackint0sh.org/f203/109567.htm
Still can't get 3.1.3 nor 4.0 on it...

Apple stopped signing 3.1.2 but that only applies to iPhone 3Gs, which one do you have? I assumed it was a 3G since you posted in this section....
If it is a 3Gs, you have to restore to 4.0.1.
This is my iPhoneUpdater.log

And this came on iPodUpdater.log (2 files)
#1066719 - Pastie
#1066721 - Pastie
This is on Windows 7 I should add, trying 3.1.3.

Your problem is likely security software installed on your windows PC.
Look at iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues
and Update and restore alert messages on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
follow the troubleshooting steps outlined in that.
Why did you include iPod Touch logs as well? Was there an iPod that did not restore?
Please read the stickies & search forum before posting! How to report an iTunes restore/update fail in a useful manner

i was trying to help him on irc with that issue as well.
My conclusion is similar to yours :-)
