Can't Restore Custom IPSW File
I am trying to jailbreak an iPhone 3g. I created a custom ipsw file using snowbreeze, but iTunes keeps giving me Error: 1604.
I tried using this tutorial, Fix 1604, 1602, 1600 Error During iPhone 3.1.3 Custom Firmware Restore | iPhoneHeat, but when I choose my device in iReb, I never get the red/white screen.
What should I do?
You should ask on another forum. All ih8sn0w software is not supported or recommended on this forum. This has been clarified before in other threads.

I recommend primarily the tools from the iPhone dev team because they work and are well tested. Geohot's tools are a bit less reliable but some give options you would not get from the devteam.
ih8sn0w has until now, taken the devteam's tools and made blatant rip-off copies - with windows GUIs. The tools are often unpolished and inaccurate or buggy.
