Hi, I have a fully working 3GS Old Bootrom (older baseband from 4.0.2) which was on a pwned 4.2.1 ipsw. I wanted to update to 4.3.1 with a custom non activated IPSW. I Tested this IPSW on another 3GS and it worked fine.
The phone begins to restore fine, but right at the end where normally iTunes would notify that the phone has been restored, I get an error message 29.
The phone has had a new battery installed (maby aftermarket?). I thought I read somewhere that a bad battery could cause this. The new battery works fine and holds a charge like the phone did new.
At the moment the phone is in a recovery loops and does not boot into IOS (sits at iTunes screen). Does anyone know a fix or what I can do to get passed this error? The phone was in PERFECT working condition before this. Once again, the IPSW I used has been used on another 3GS (same old br and same baseband) and it works fine.
Thank you for your help!!

or try another PC..
Make sure to show hidden files under your folder options.
Close the iTunes and disconnect your iDevice from your Computer.
Go to the following directory:
Win 7 & Vista Users:
C:Users\*UsersName*\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\Device Support
Windows XP :
C\Documents and Settings\*UserName*\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\Device Support or iPhone Software Updates
Backup the files available in the folder and delete them from that folder.
Put your iPhone into Recover Mode. and Restore the Custom firmware.

I will try the second fix. I have used both iReb and redsn0w to put into pwned DFU mode. Both same probmlem. Actually, at the begning using iReb, i got an error 1600 when trying to restore. So then I used redsn0w to pwn. It then allowed to restore, but still error 29. I will try the second fix later when I get home. Thanks!
Fixed!!! The battery i used was aftermarket (although it looked legit). The pcb on the battery was diffrent. I put the origional battery in and it is now back to normal.
