    Default Bricked Phone: 2G iPhone, Pwnage 2.0.1, 2.0 OS [Solved! Thx!]

    I hope someone can help me. I've scoured/searched the boards to no avail.

    I have a 2G iPhone, 1.0.2 OTB, AnySim'ed 1.1.1/1.1.2, revirginized to 1.0.2, Pwnage to 1.1.4 and restore to custom 2.0 firmware. Worked flawlessly for two weeks. Gave the phone to my wife after I received my 3G iPhone.

    Today, I accidentally hit the BIG RESET: Settings / General / Reset /Erase All Content and Settings

    BIG MISTAKE!

    The phone will not boot. I "think" I get it into DFU but all attempts to restore to 1.1.4 virgin, 2.0 virgin, 1.1.4 custom (pwned) and 2.0 custom (pwned) result in errors 1600, 1602 and 1604.

    Argh.

    Please help... my wife is gonna kill me. Not because she's out of a phone, but because I bricked an expensive gadget

    I can provide more info as I'm sure I didn't post everything/settings that I've tried.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would DFU restore to Apple FW 2.0.1 then use PwnageTool 2.0.2 to unlock. Dont know why this happened to you, never heared of resetting the setting would make the iPhone not booting.
    Make sure you are in DFU mode (black screen).

    Hope that helps

    By the way, the phone is currently flipping back and forth between the pineapple logo, and the steve-jobs (recovery) logo... If that is any help.

    ok, shut it down by holding the start button. Disconnect from the Mac. Then hold home - while still holding and iTunes running on the Mac - reconnect. iTunes should "see" an iPhone in recovery mode.
    Restore to 2.0.1 first, then get PwnageTool 2.0.2 and unlock it.

    THANK YOU volkspost!

    This worked. I'm now on 2.0.1 and am currently pwn'ing it... Thanks again for your prompt and excellent replies.

    By the way -- I have no idea why a 'reset' that was only meant to delete media and data, ended up putting the phone into a loop. And I have no idea why previous attempts at restoring didn't work, but I think it had to do with not shutting it down properly, followed by the "home button + connect' technique.

    Who knows, but many many thanks!

    One more: Once you got your iPhone up and running again you will sync it with iTunes. on that first attempt iTunes will offer "to restore from a backup". Dont do it. Instead choose the other option "set up as a new iPhone". this way it will be clean. After taht you can sync as usual.
    restoring from the backup may give back preference files to your iPhone that caused the problems.

    Aye -- yes, good point -- I'll make sure I avoid "backup"... Thanks again!
