  • Leopard 10.5.5 + Pwnage = error 1600?

    Anyone else tried to restore a custom firmware after updating to 10.5.5 and get error 1600?! I've tried 3 times and ended up resorting to Quickpwn.

    I have read several other people having problems so please post up your results! Thanks.

    This would potentially only apply to stock iphones... if the phone in already in an pwned state then it will continue to accept custom firmwares.

    Update: I followed tatoojack's instructions and completely deleted pwnage. Re-downloaded it... uncompressed on my desktop, then created a folder called pwnage tool in Applications. I then put pwnage, the 2.1 firmare file and both bootloaders in there. Finally created a new custom firmware and successfully DFU restored to 2.1.

      Just did mine...worked fine. Used a Macbook Pro that I recently did a archive and reinstall of 10.5 then updated to 10.5.4 + itunes 8 followed by the 10.5.5 update the next day. Was also my first time running pwnage 2.1 on it.

      I just did a fresh 3G iphone that has never been pwnd. It worked on the first try once I got into DFU mode through Pwnage.

      OSX 10.5.5 + iTunes 8

      Interestingly, my own previously pwned 3G iphone wouldn't restore from DFU, I had to be in recovery mode (connect to itunes image) for it to work.

      I've read all the topic, and i undersand it. But, i got some problem: I got only Vista.

      If I understand correctly, tha only difference is the maker of the firmware file. (QuickPwn on Vista)
      Could be happen that i upgrade my iphone with a downloaded firmware (make under Mac?)
      It yes, could u give me a link for it?
      If not, do you have any idea to do this under win?

      Thx a lot!

      What are the real benefits of upgrading??? The listed fixes are so so... Alright, I'm hating. I have been trying to get 10.5.5 working on my Hackintosh and it has proven to be quite the undertaking ;-(

Kept getting the same error and drove me nuts
      I was in the same boat. I followed this exactly and it worked perfectly. Thanks
