[Winpwn] Unknown error (-10)
I cannot restore my custom firmware while in DFU mode.
There is an unknown error (-10)
I have built my custom firmware using Winpwn 188.8.131.52 RC1.
I just added Cydia to the firmware, and also checked activate, neuter and unlock in the advanced tab.
There is no error during the build .ipsw process.
My iphone have be pwned.
My itunes version is 184.108.40.206
I can restore my custom firmware using shift + restore but not DFU mode.
only thing i can say is try rebuilding it... by the way u on 1.1.4?
I have rebuilt the firmware for a number of times.
I have tried add only "installer" to the firmware.
Still get the same error
I am on 1.1.4 & tried restore to the original apple 1.1.4 firmware in DFU mode and it works.
After that ipwner again but still get the unknown errror (-10)
try it again wit BSD as well... im just guessing here youll have to ask the guy who made winpwn if it doesnt work out... gl and hope the BSD thing works...
I had the same issues trying to restore in DFU mode with the custom firmware. I was using Pwnage Tool 1.1 for this. I believe that the custom firmwares don't have good support for DFU restore. They work fine with normal restore. So my suggestion to you would be to restore to 1.1.4 pwn your phone again and then do a normal restore to your custom firmware rather then DFU mode restore.
You shouldn't try custom ipsw in DFU. Should be done in restore mode both on Windows and Mac.
In preparation before using any pwn software you might wanna use DFU mode and restore to Apple FW 1.1.4 to make sure you are on 1.1.4. Even recent bought iPhones might have 1.13, cause hanging around in the store for months.
Then you use pwnage software, first iPwn your iPhone. Then built custom firmware 1.1.4. If you need to for restoring in iTunes to the custom firmware 1.1.4, you can put the iPhone into restore mode:
Disconnect the phone then turn it off (hold power then slide to turn off).
Then hold home and plug iPhone back (keep holding home till the restore mode screen appears in itunes).
Install the custom firmware.
Hope that helps

Thanks very much for all your advice...
Let's think about it...
If I just want to use my custom firmware for my 1.1.4 OTB iPhone.
I must put it to DFU mode in order to restore through iTunes.
Otherwise, iTunes would keep just saying my SIM card is not support something like that.
So, in my current situation.
I have just restored a original Apple 1.1.4 firmware.
What should I do next?
iTunes won't let me restore or upgrade any firmware...
And there is just a popup message saying my SIM card is not support...
What I can only do is to puy my iPhone to DFU mode...
So that iTunes would allow me to restore...
I have tried to restore using my custom firmware...
But same error (unknown error (-10))
You do not need to do the DFU mode to avoid the not supported SIM message. Put your phone in normal restore mode and you will not get the unsupported SIM message. Instead iTunes will ask you to click on the restore button. At this point you can do SHIFT + Restore button and select your custom firmware and you should be on your way.
