[Problem] [Solved] Error upgrading to 2.1
I have an iPhone 3G and I screwed up my lock code and had to restore over iTunes. For some reason, after restoring with the same 2.0.2 custom firmware, the phone wouldn't boot, just vibrate every 5 seconds with a spinning wheel.
I shut the phone down forcefully (home and power button for 10 secs) and then tried the whole thing over again. It wouldn't work at all with the any custom built firmware. I was using Leopard 1.5.5 and iTunes 8 at that time. I then found an old 2.0 ipsw and I could restore to 2.0. However, that 2.0 was not jailbroken. Now I couldn't upgrade to custom firmware 2.1 in iTunes 8 so I thought I try with iTunes 7.7.
In 7.7 I get all kinds of errors returned, but I guess 1600 is the most common. I am in recovery mode however when trying to update.
Possibly 2.1 firmware is too new for iTunes 7 so I thought I would download an old ipsw and create a custom firmware from there. Sadly, my Pwnage Tool 2.1 doesn't seem to accept any ipsw except the 2.1. All the others return "wrong firmware selected".
Quickpawn, too, "does not support the firmware" I have currently on my iPhone 3g.
Please let me know what can be done. Does Pwnage Tool 2.1 not support older firmwares? And why doesn't QuickPwn take care of my 2.0 firmware?
I am desperately trying not to update my baseband here.
Edit: Clearly PwnageTool 2.1 doesn't support 2.0x firmware. How silly.
I made a custom 2.0 firmware now. iTunes 7.7 still returns error 1600 to me. I am in recovery mode. No screen, iTunes detecs, extracts, prepares... then error.
Still on iTunes 7.7 I keep on getting 1600s and 6s as errors. I did remove the files inside "Device Support" several times and rebuild the firmware in PwnageTool but that just returns me to error six.
Are there two ways of restoring? I think I've tried both Recovery Mode and DFU Recovery. One is with USB cable on the screen and one is with a blank screen, right? Which one should I use for Jailbreaking for the first time?

After many frustrating days, it seems all that went wrong is that I didn't have a cleanly pwned custom firmware. Downloading with Firefox from the apple homepage solved the problem. However, only 2.1 worked, no other firmware would do. Bizarre.
