    Default Stuck in DFU-- Error (1601) in iTunes
    Okay so continuing from where I was at in my previous thread I went further.

    Finally, I successfully put the phone in DFU mode and restored the FW2.0.1. I then tried to shift-restore the pwned version, but it gave me a 1602 error. I re-installed iTunes, and tried again, it gave me a 1601 error. I tried installing iTunes 7.5, but it gave me a music library error. I found a workaround but it wouldn't work, so I installed back iTunes 7.7 and repwned an .ipsw file to make sure that wasn't the problem, but I still get error(1601).

    So basically I'm in DFU mode and I get the 1601 error in iTunes when I try to restore my custom firmware.

    Help?

    Putting it back into recovery. Then into DFU mode and then using iPwner fixed everything.

    OK I have been struggling looking for an answer for 3 days now > & haven't found one so i will finally post.

    I restored my phone thru Itunes I am on 1.1.4. I haven't been able to get the update because I have t-mobile and must jailbreak before I can update to I think its 2.0.1. (says I need a valid SIM)

    I followed the winpwn noob step by step, including the DFU. I created the file winpwn /ipsw for 2G & no luck. It just keeps giving me error message:
    "the iphone "iphone" could not be restored. An unknown error occured (1)"

    My phone has the 4.6 bootloader, so I checked:

    enable baseband update/
    neuter bootloader 3.9-4.6
    update bootloader/
    upgrade to 4.6/
    unlock baseband/
    autodelete bootneuter app/
    and both 3.9 & 4.6 files were uploaded.

    I partitioned to 999mb,
    no cydia I just want installer & utube fix .

    Still no luck my phone isnt working at all right now.

    PLEASE HELP IM PHONELESS

    I had this problem and solved it this way... I'm on a Mac, so I begin by referencing a Mac directory. If you are a Windows user, I include an alternate "Step 1" below as well.

    Step 1 for Mac users) Navigate to the folder ~Library/iTunes/Device Support ... For the new Mac users among us, remember that the "~" designates that you start in your home (i.e., yourname) folder on your Mac rather than the several other places where a "Library" folder exists.

    Alternate Step 1 for Windows users) Navigate to this subdirectory:
    CDocuments and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\

    Step 2) Delete this file: x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw

    Step 3) Run the PwnageTool application. (I used PwnageTool 2.0.2 on the Mac.) Yes, I already had a usable custom firmware file I had made before, but I was doing it again because the process also dutifully recreates the file I deleted in Step 2 when it can't find it there.

    Step 4) This is important: In my case, when Pwnage asked me at the end whether I had ever pwn'd my iPhone before (whether I'd seen the pineapple, etc.), rather than click "YES," I clicked "NO." In other words, click "NO" as if this was the first time you've pwn'd your phone.

    Step 5) Finish out the pwn'ing by following the prompts in PwnageTool to put your phone in recovery mode, etc.. Then within iTunes, option-restore with the new custom firmware you created.

    Voila. The phone restored without the dreaded error. I hope this works for you as well. (Fingers crossed...)

    I have the same damn problem!
    And I have an iPod touch.
    Winterboard had an update, I ran it in cydia, then realized that I didn't update the itunes version yet. So it screwed up my themes.
    Tried to upload new itunes update then got this issue.

    I'm screwed also. Nothing works.

    Default Tried mentioned methods
    I tried all the mentioned methods I could find here and other places and none of them worked. I was constantly getting the 1601 error when trying to restore and also stuck on black screen "DFU" mode. I got passed all that and had a successful restore. I myself am an electronics technician but I don't see why to many others need to be afraid of my method. I went to youtube and looked up a battery replacement video. I did what it showed only used my same battery. I left the battery out for about an hour and after reassembly the 1601 error was gone got a white screen and an attempt to restore with a 1015 error. But now my phone had the itunes/usb screen. Gave it one more go and walla restoration complete.
