Unknown error 1 - iTunes using Pwnage Tool 22.214.171.124
I was using my iPhone without any problems for a month, i had unlocked it using PWNAGE TOOL 2.01 and Firmware: iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore, it worked well, at the time I had some problems getting into DFU mode, but somehow I got it running by restoring with the original Firmware that was on it. Then 5 days ago i lost Internet access via GPRS on my phone, that has been FREE access ever since I unlocked it with PWN, so i decided to try restoring and use the latest PWN Tool to get FREE INTERNET again.
Now I have problems getting it running again. Im now stuck getting Error 1 every time i use iTunes 7.7 in DFU mode, iTunes starts to open the Custom firmware created by PWNAGE Tool 126.96.36.199 and stops, then always shows "Error 1".
I noticed when i let Itunes download the firmware, iTunes came up with Firmware 1.1.4 for the recovery download, even though it was running 2.0 before this. So then I downloaded iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore firmware and tried installing it on my phone. It seemed to work ok, but then after 3minutes of updating the firmware onto my phone it almost looked like it had completed, then ended with ERROR 1015. Now when the phone is on it just shows the Mac Logo at start up, then the Itunes logo and USB connector icon. Back to square one.
Ive tried using iTunes 7.6 and it was the same, Error 1 after attempting to install Custom 2.0 firmware, Error 1 always apears after extracting the 2.0 Firmware. I tried making other firmwares using PWNAGE tool and still same problem Error 1. Tried different USB ports, rebooting my MAC etc, created a new USER account, no luck, all the same ERROR 1.
PWNAGE TOOL even says i am in DFU mode and then iTunes 7.7 opens and I try again, same error, ERROR 1, every time!
Ive read many posts on this and everyone seems to think its either not in DFU mode correctly, or the Firmware is wrong. I'm using the same original 2.0 Firmware in PWNAGE TOOL and custom firmware its created, and tried creating other firmware, so that seems unlikely. The iPhone screen is always black in DFU mode as it should be and i am pretty sure it has been in DFU mode correctly when connected to iTunes.
How can i get my iPhone working again, and get out of this Error 1 nightmare, i have spent 4 days trying to get it running. PLEASE HELP.
P.S: System Info: Running MACBOOK PRO OSX Leopard 10.5.4
Iphone 8GB 1st Generation. ( I dont have an AT&T account, i got my phone on Ebay and have an Australian Optus pre-paid mobile SIM card which worked well before.)
Thread moved to the correct section.
What did you do to your iPhone, the poor thing.
The only thing you would have had to do is a simple restore/recovery to the new custom firmware, not a DFU restore.
OK, here is the way out. to get rid of all this up- and downgrading:
1. Make sure to have iTunes 7.7.1 on your Mac
2. Connect Mac and iPhone, quit iTunes if running
3. Shut down the iPhone by holding start/sleep until the red slider shows up, slide to shut off
4. Hold start/sleep and home button for 10 seconds
5. Release start/sleep but keep holding home button until...
6. ...iTunes starts up and finds an iPhone in restore/recovery mode
7. Let go of home button, click ok in iTunes and then "restore"
This will restore your iphone to FW 2.0.2 locked state.
Start PwnageTool 188.8.131.52 and create a new custom firmware file from the correct one for your iPhone. You dont need to connect the iPhone during the process. As soon as PwnageTool wants to put your iPhone into DFU or asks if it has ever been pwnaged, just quit the app.
Connect iPhone and Mac, quit iTunes and shut down the iPhone. Then do the steps 4-6. When it comes to restore, option-click on the restopre button is iTunes and restore to the custom firmware you made.
