      have tried a third time and it is stuck on the "preparing iphone software for restore" process, any suggestions?

      Muggz5: Ok guys you all getting the white screen is not a bad thing, this means you got into DFU properly. So, when you get the white screen, error 6 etc etc try closing itunes, unplugging the device and replug either into a different port or the same one and shift restore again. You dont have to put the phone into DFU again leave it as it is. Unless for some reason the phone restarted itself.This may take a couple attempts, but this worked for me in the past.. By the way If this does work, thank me or at the very least confirm it here so we know it wasnt just a fluke 5 times on different phones for me and my pc.

      Note: Now I only have experience with 1st gen phones, Ive never pwned 3G so Im not sure other than 1st gen. However I would imagine its the same
      Yes, it works. When you received Error (6), you don't have to put it in DFU mode. I just did it successfully. Use your pacience, since it lasts a little saying "Preparing iPhone for restore...", and then a couple of other steps. I have my iPhone already Act., Jailb. and Unl.
      Thanks to all of you for your comments and I hope my testimony is useful for others.

      Ok, so i got it all pwnd with the 2.0.0.4. I used a seperate user account on my windows xp computer. Now i have installer and cydia but everything else is gone. Can i now use the itunes from my regular user account on my computer and restore it there from the backup or will it erase everything i have just done?

      Or if not how can i get everything back. bc this itunes is blank. No music, photos, videos, etcc...?
      Thanks,

      hey man this is from bigboss just thought maybe it would help!

      "Yea, so you updated to 2.0.2 and hooked up to iTunes. Everything seemed to be goign well you thought. It found your backup and asked you to restore it. Phew, you won’t have to reenter your contacts so you’re happy. Your restore your backup its working.

      Later you hook up to iTunes to add some songs and it is asking you again, do you want ot restore your backup or set up as a new phone. What the heck? Didn’t we already do this? This seems to be happening to lots of folks. The solution is simple.

      To solve this, after you do your initial backup restore, just set up the phone as new. It shouldn’t ask you again after this. You won’t lose your contacts either because you already synced them on from the first backup restore."

It goes to unpack the firmware and then says "Iphone (iphone)cannot be restored unknown error (1) Any help on this issue?
      ziphone has been proven to be garbage and its not recommende by anyone, as for dfu mode are you using the ziphone option to put the phone in dfu? if you are ziphone doesnt put it in dfu mode, you have to do it the manual way, hold the power and home buton till the screen goes black then let go of the power button, then itunes should pick it up, if your screen is black and itunes picks it up then you are in dfu

      Ok so i have a iphone 3g. I succesfully made a ipsw with winpwn. I checked cydia and installer, aswell as the youtube option. I unchecked the the activation option aswell. After installing 2.0.1 I have no AT&T service. i have done everything that has been suggested. How can i get service back?

      Oh and before you say you should have only checked cydia and installer NOt the youtube option...winpwn will always faill building a ipsw that way.

      THanks (HELP!!)

      Of course this has been posted several times however I wanted to add it here again, just in case there are still a few with previous pwned 2.0 phones out there. I just did 2 phones in a matter of 15 minutes.

      I put the phones in normal restore mode not DFU (power off, hold Home + Plug in, until custom logo pops up or the "plug into itunes" logo) Open itunes, shift + restore to custom firmware I downloaded from Here

      Watch the magic. Dont unplug or mess with the phone until it goes to "Edit Home Screen" Leave your sim cards in, its just fine... The Auto Settings will show up, let it do its thing. Enjoy!
      Its quick and painless and didnt even download the new winpwn.
      Thanks alot Devteam and everyone else involved.

      I restored from backup - all email passwords were transferred.General consensus is that you are not supposed to do that, but I have 2 1st gens to play with so I tried it for a goof and it worked. It took about an hour to restore from backup.

      After 6 or 7 complete restores I am ready to pull my hair out. It goes perfectly every time......until I restore the backup of my phone. It freezes after reboot and will not come out of it. Only way out so far is a complete restore again! I keep trying cuz I want my saved texts back and some stuff I have in notes. I have read everything everywhere and although others have had backup problems I have not seen this one and solution for it. Any ideas???

      Not before today. Was running 1.1.4 and did the whole 2.0.4 winpwn thing without a hitch. I'm fooling around with the last restore now and everything works fine but if I hook up to itunes and try and restore a backup I'll end up with a frozen screen and the thingy that goes round and round lol. I've done that about 5 times now with different custom ipsw's and have the same result everytime.

      It's kinda quiet in here. Is there any reason to pwnage to 2.01 firmware? My iPhone is running flawlessly on 2.0.

      Actually there are a few bug fixes for 2.0 and So far this seems to be running even better. Check out installer its a nice interface. It has a few bugs in it but Cydia is great anyway. I just posted a few minutes ago, I went through how to do the new pwn easily without using winpwn.... Its worth it to me.

      Hence the TMobile account I posted. That custom .ipsw is for jailbreaking and unlocking. Did you previously have a pwned 2.0 ?

      I also stated that I had a 1st gen.
      Considering you have a valid AT&T account you only need to jailbreak. Did you download the correct 3G firmware from that site? Have you pwned your current itunes before? Again whas your phone previously pwned to 2.0? Or did you restore it to a factory .ipsw before attempting?
