Hi, I am new and have search after a solution but did not find it.
I use Win Vista 32, one Iphone 1st generation unlocked with PWD software. 2 days ago it blocked again and I can't put it in DFU mode.
I tried to restore it with Itunes but got error 6. It is not my 1st Iphone and I have already unlocked a lot but this time I can't help.
I tried everything. I know how to put it in DFU manually but failed.
I used different computers, different usb....but no success.
I should add that the Iphone is on recovery mode so not possible to switch off or do anything else with it. I had the last version 2.0.2
Could you help please?
Thanks a lot

Good read. I'm trying out your method as we speak. However, I'm still having problems. Mainly: Why does WinPwn 2.5 Beta crash in the middle of the DFU process? After I go through the sleep/home button mess, the window says the iPhone is going into DFU mode, blah blah blah, and then suddenly the program freezes and a "Winpwn 2.5 BETA has stopped working" window pops up. I've never gotten to the end.

Okay, so here's what I did that was different from DimSum:
1) Same process basically up to
16. Following the DFU built-in instructions. The only difference is that I did allow custom images.
2) When I got to step 16, and was done pressing and holding those buttons, Winpwn 2.5 froze up (as always). I had a major "Eff this" moment and tried the SHIFT+restore in the iTunes menu and uploaded the "Custom" .ipsw file. I held the home button during the entire process.
3) Long story short, it worked. At first, I thought it was a dud because I didn't use Winpwn all the way (it was still frozen) and nothing magical or dramatic seemed to happen. iTunes popped up that "Your iPhone has been reset to factory setting" window so that didn't help the situation either. The iPhone had the custom restore image on the screen.
Then, after pressing ok, I decided, whatever, I've been doing this for about 10 hours straight anyway, and packed up to go home. When I removed the USB cable, the custom boot image popped up on the iPhone, followed by the BootNeuter screen and an anticlimactic moment of realization.
The fat lady hasn't sung yet. I'm about to try making a call after this BootNeuter stuff finishes.
