Thread: Error 2005 After DFU
07-04-2008, 07:38 PM #1Error 2005 After DFU
I have just used iLibertyX to jailbreak/unlock my iPhone. After the unlock did not work (my AT&T SIM was still in, but I could not make/receive calls, texts, use EDGE, etc.). So I tried to unlock again. Just a note, I am on firmware 1.1.4, and i have the 4.6 bootloader. So I figured I can restore my iPhone and try again. But iTunes won't let me restore. So I put it in DFU mode, and iTunes threw up an error "The iPhone 'iPhone' could not be restore. An unknown error occured (2005)." PLEASE HELP! I NEED MY PHONE FOR THE NEXT WEEK UNTIL THE NEW ONE IS RELEASED!
UPDATE: Never mind; I plugged it into another Mac and did the restore from there... AND IT WORKED!

Simply change your cable from hub to main/main to hub. Solved!

Here is solution to:
3194 - start and stop TU should solve this one
1600 - this one could be related to firewalls as well, so close all
2005 - this one could be ralted to USB port so switch USB port, its also related to hosts, TU should solve this one.
11 - this one, was solved with new custom 5.01, and downloading all SHSH and steps 2 - 4
All that I got while trying to do 4.3.3 to 5.01
Step by step how to avoid all at once, maybe some steps are not needed but I'm sure it will work like this:
1. I went to DFU mode run redsn0w then made Custom from 5.01 ! I got No_BB one.
2. Host thing got confusing to me, should I put # or not, so I started latest TU (Tiny Umbrella) and checked Save ALL Available SHSH in Advanced, Started TSS Server and stoped it. I checked SHSHs and found 5.01 there, I selected it doesn't know if that is important or not.
3. I started TU again, START TSS Server and close TU
3. ireb r4 pwned DFU
4. Itunes and restore with Shift.
Worked, all errors avoided.

Hi Everyone, i was stumped with this one until i read this post. I used redsn0w 9.14b2 to enter dfu mode without the use of a power button, then used sn0wbreeze v2.7.3 to create a custom ipsw, then tried to restore to the custom ipsw with itunes, but it error out of itunes saying it was unable to restore. After that, i couldn't do anything, so i tried to use redsn0w and tinyumbrella to repair, and go the 2005 error. I read this post, then changed the usb port, and press and held the power and home buttons for a few seconds until the pc made the finding a new device sound. Then, i restored to the original Ipsw with itunes (not the jailbroken version) FINALLY, i got it working. its not jailbroken but at least it works.
