iPhone bricked? Cannot restore no matter what.
I used pwnage 2.01 on my 1.1.3 iPhone, and after having pwned it and restored the custom firmware, itunes told me I could not use this iPhone with itunes because the information required to activate it could not be obtained...
So I tried restoring it to some other firmware, hoping it could work again. Here is what I tried with iTunes 7.7 (MAC) and the error msg's I got:
iPhone1_1_4ipsw: "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occured (20)."
iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw: Same but with error (1604)
iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw: Error 1604 again
iPhone1,1_1.1.3_4A93_Restore.ipsw: Same but Error 20 again
The only thing on my iPhone screen s the USB cable -> iTunes sign. I cannot shut it off properly by holding the power button and then sliding to shut of. I have to hold the power button a couple of seconds, at which point it restarts and goes back to the USB -> iTunes sign. I have to hold the power button and the home button down for 10 seconds to shut it down.
What is wrong? What can I do about it? Any suggestions. Help would be very much appreciated, as I live in a very remote location, and went through lots of trouble (and paid a lot of money) to get this iPhone, and now regret stupidly tinkering with it.
Edit: I also tried restoring it on my PC with iTunes 7.7 and these are the Error msg's:
iPhone1,1_1.1.3_4A93_Restore.ipsw: Error (20)
iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw: Error (6)
iPhone1_1_4.ipsw: Error (20)
Cant restore no matter what - error 1604
I have the same problem.
1. I've restored to the 2.0 firmware (custom)
2. Everething went well and 2.0 was loaded.
3. For some reason i've decided to lauch the boot neuter icon
4. I switched the bootloader from 3.9 to 4.6
5. Waited until flash finished
and that's it. my iphone is stuck on the boot screen since then.
nothing i do helps. in DFU mode i cannot restore to any of the firmwares -
tried to restore to 1.1.4, original 2.0, custom 2.0 and always get "error 1604".
