iTouch black screen (Error 1600 on Restore)
Hi everyone. I'm posting this as a last resource, as I've tried everything else. The thing is:
I've this friend which had his iTouch bricked after an unsuccessful update. Then he just bought a new one and kept this one. And as I'm kind of a fix-tard, I tried to fix it.
The iTouch seems 100% dead, as it doesn't show anything when you press any key. But when you plug it into the PC, that "USB connected" sound plays and iTunes appears, telling me to restore it.
Then I tried all of these restoration tips with no success. But was this time I tried again that Sleep/Wake + Home press thing, and mysteriously the miraculous Apple logo appeared, and it came back to life. Even with my friend's songs, apps and settings. Then after a couple hours of normal use (entered in WiFi, installed one or two apps, deleted his songs), I left it on the table and some time later when I went to see it again, there is was, just like it was before. Black screen, unresponsive. I've tried the buttons thing again, but no success.
What I think is that the firmware is somewhat corrupt. And as I didn't restore it while it was functional, the same firmware that failed before failed again. And I'm hoping that if I manage to make it work again and restore it, it will be fine. As it worked for a period of time, I assume it's not a hardware failure, right?
I've tried an immense gamma of software, and none seems to work. It looks like the phone is in constant DFU mode, stuck on it.
Here's my info:
- iTunes version 10.4.0.80
- iPhone OS version 3.1.3 (I managed to get this while it was functional. I think my friend jailbroke it)
- Windows 7 x64
Detailed Instructions to Reproduce the Problem: Black screen, unresponsive to Wake/Sleep + Home button, iTunes recognizes it as Recovery Mode but fails to recover (I've tried versions 1.1, 1.1.1, 2.2.1, 3.1.2 and 3.1.3, error codes varies between 1600 and 1601)

The cable is a bit damaged on the connections, but I don't want to pay R$60 (I live in Brazil) for a new one if I'm not sure I'll be able to fix this pretty thingy)
Another interesting fact is: the first time I connect it to a new PC (or a new user), the iTouch screen turns white and iTunes give me an 1403 error.
Thank you a lot.
