3Gs 32GB Odd Behaviour - Error 1600 & 1601 while Restoring to Factory FW, PLS HELP
You are my last hope since (in my opinion) i tried everything i could think to so far.
For the record, i don't consider myself a newbie, since i flashed, unlocked and jailbreaked at least 50 iPhones so far (mine, friends, colleagues, neighbours and so on).
Here goes my story, hope it won't be long and that you can help me fix my problem:
A colleague gave me his iPhone (3Gs, 32GB, New Bootrom, updated by mistake iOS to 4.3.1, 05.16.01 basesand)
Since it was previously running iOS 4.0.2, 05.12.01 firmware, software unlocked - ultrasn0w, i tried downgrading it to 4.3, ipad baseband 06.15 for unlocking purposes.
Flashed custom 4.3 FW via sn0wbreeze, had some problems with it (iPhone screen went black by itself, needed to tethered via iBooty every couple of minutes to work.
Next day I tried to create another Custom Firmware but missed the deadline since 4.3 signature was closed by Apple (i don't know how, but the iPhone doesn't have any ShSh blobs saved).
So, finally, i tried reflashing to Stock 4.3.1 and wait for a solution (a jailbreak one / unlock).
The iPhone is in recovery mode, i hit the Restore button - Restore and Update - Preparing iPhone for Restore... (iPhone disconnects, i hear the ding-dong sound) THE DISPLAY ON THE iPHONE IS BLACK DURING THE ENTIRE PROGRESS, and after a couple of minutes : The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred. (1601) - or 1602, sometimes
The only way to get the iPhone of this black screen is to run GreenPoison, process completes, iPhone screen turns White, same error during restoring :(
Info : Windows 7 Ultimate, iTunes 10.2.0.34, HOSTS file edited (removed SAURIK's server) tiny.umbrella hosts deleted.
Please give me some guidance, since my colleague gave me a working 3Gs (although with iPod functions only) :). I would like to repair it, since paying for a 32GB 3Gs is not an option.
