    Default [Pwnage][1.1.4] Black screen of Death

    When Pwning my iPhone I inadvertently selected my ipod ipsw and now my iphone is stuck with a black screen.

    So far I have tried restoring with itunes using both a custom ipsw and the default ipsw downloaded from apple. Both end with a error and close my iphone out of itunes.
    This was attempted in DFU and recovery mode.

    Then i tried using iLiberty to force into DFU mode to ensure it was in DFU mode since I am unable to see the screen to restore and the same problem. iTunes starts and errors out.

    When I plug it into the mac it notices it and launches iPhoto and I am able to browse my photos. But I am unable to get anything on my iPhone screen...

    Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated
    (I have spent the last 2 hours researching and trying other methods to no success.)

    THANKS

    UPDATE

    When in DFU mode iTunes detects it as a iPhone but when I try to restore I get error 1600 or 2001'

    When in resotre mode iTunes detects the phone as a iPod.

    When in DFU nothing is seen on the screen till the upgrade/restore process starts

    u need to use a different cable/computer/usb drive/USER account on computer

    or just try a reboot of ur PC or reinstall itunes

    one of these should work

    good luck

    I tried reinstalling iTunes, another user and a dif. ver. of iTunes.

    Switching to another computer allowed me to restore.

    Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue except my Mac sees my iPhone as an iPod and my PC recognizes it as a USB device, but iTunes on my PC doesn't.

    EDIT: Created a new account on my PC and iTunes didn't recognize the iPhone at all. Created a new user account on my Mac and it recognizes the phone as an iPhone. The phone is now in DFU mode but I keep getting the 1600 error.

    EDIT: OK I have 2.0 installing. It's the only thing that worked. Hopefully I can downgrade for now, or I'll wait for the new PwnageTool. I'm giving this to the gf since I got the 3g, she can wait
