dfu: with phone on, hold down home+power 10 sec, then home for 10sec.
restoreower phone off, then hold home+phone 10 sec, then home for 10sec.
once i got the phone in restore, restored with custom firmware 2.1 and was up and running.

Wow good thing I didnt update
09-17-2008, 02:23 AM #46
your saying that you restored to 2.1 using quickpwn but did not let you restore from backup, then your running a 2.1 quickpwn firmware? eh?
OLD INFO I forgot where to get this again. Link?
09-17-2008, 02:46 AM #47
so which other ones must you have in order to restore from a backup?
yes i restored in itunes with the original 2.1 software. then i used quickwn. i used pwnage too first to make a custom firmware 2.1. Then tried to restore, it went threw and when the iphone restarted it wouldnt load just stayed in boot mode.

I've updated to Mac OS 10.5.5, and when I restore with the modded firmware I either get the error 1600, or my iphone freezes during bootup just showing the silver apple.
09-17-2008, 04:05 AM #49
I was getting the 1600 error prior to the leopard update until I read not to go into DFU mode - just do an option-restore in itunes and choose your custom firmware. Now on 2.1 with no problems.

Ran full update on a "brand new mac" (10.5.5 + iTunes 8 + ...).
Connected previously pwned 2.0.1 iPhone.
Clicked on a "download only" in iTunes.
Ran PwnageTool, made my own firmware.
Edit Poseidon: You were successful b/c your phone had been pwned already. This problem is for phones in a stock, non-pwned state.

I've just used QuickPwn, and it worked a treat. PwnageTool I'm still getting the error 1600 with it.

I had some real troubles restoring my iPhone after upgrading. But i figured it out at last. I got a previously pwned iPhone 3G, and did not work for me to restore with a custom FW directly. I got an error when unpacking the FW (error 6 ?). I tried to uninstall iTunes and then reinstall it but that did not work either. So i tried to start pwnage tool again and made a new custom fw and this time i clicked "no" and put the phone in DFU mode. Before i put it in DFU mode the phone was in "connect to itunes" from the previous faulty restore
So after putting it in DFU mode i was able to restore sucessfully Now running 2.1, pwned.
Edit Poseidon: Your phone was "previously pwned"... this is why it worked.

Same here Quickpwn failed to boot past logo, it just kept vibrating every few minutes. Tried then got Pawnage Tool but got error 1600, so i put it into recovery mode and it worked a treat.
Itunes 8, OSX 10.5.5, 3G Iphone.
09-17-2008, 08:26 AM #54Leopard 10.5.5 + Pwnage = error 1600?
I was trying to pwn (with pwnagetool 2.1) a 3G yesterday BEFORE I updated to 10.5.5 and I was getting error 1600. I ended up using Quickpwn instead on the 3G.
09-17-2008, 09:15 AM #55This is how it worked for me
- IPhone 2G bought in the US, unlocked and used in Switzerland since November 2006
- Firmware 2.0.2 updated using Pwnage Tool
- Mac Book Air running Mac OSX 10.5.5
- iTunes 8
- After a number of attempts on Pwnage getting the iTunes (1600) error and on QuickPwn getting a "QuickPwn doesn't support your iPhone firmware" error (???). I did the following:
- Created own ipsw using Pwnage tool - replacing previously created 2.1 ipsw.
- Answered NO to the question "Have your phone been Pwnaged before?"
- Put the phone in DFU mode using this How To Put The iPhone Into DFU Mode rather than the Pwnage steps. i.e. you see the logos rather than a black screen
- Followed all iTunes instructions/steps and it did work beautifully
Hope it helps...
Edit Poseidon: Your phone was previously pwned on the 2.0.2 firmware so this is why it worked.

you guys hwo are getting the error.. have you pwned before . if so you dont put in dfu just restore with custom firmware .. that may be the problem....
if you are new stock pwnage.. you shouldnt really have a problem..
just dfu then custom restore.. i have 10.5.5 and dont see a problem.
09-17-2008, 11:17 AM #57
It worked fine for me.
first: update MBP with software update. it updated my os x to 10.5.5 and itunes to version 8.
after that, opened itunes and made sure was on itunes 8.
then connected my iPhone 2g previously pwned 2.0.1
did a backup of phone before started
opened the new pwnagetool 2.1
had already dled fw 2.1.ipsw
ran pwnagetool in expert mode
ran like a charm
took about 30-40 minutes (while I grilled and ate dinner)
followed the osx guide for 3g and it worked just like stated
put phone in restore (not dfu ) mode
let itunes find it and then (which i have never done before) restored the phone from the backup that i had created before i started.
everything is working fine. had all my text msg, recent phone calls and everything else from my backup. pretty sweet
seems to run a little faster. apps loading faster. hadnt got to test it a whole lot
09-17-2008, 11:20 AM #58
my phones were all stock, activated with at&t, none were pwnd. they all worked.
i believe most people are having problems from the fact that DFU mode has changed since 1.1.4
it is a slightly different process for 2.0+
i let pwnage tell me what to do and it worked fine.
make sure you use the pwnage from the devteam,
then you dont just double click to install, you have to use unarchiver i think.
also delete old pwnage before installing.
DO NOT run pwnage from anywhere but your main Hard drive.
put it in the apps folder in a folder called pwnage.
then put the stock 2.1 restore in there with it, then the bootloader files.
start pwnage. follow all steps.
open itunes 8, option click restore and pick your custom (that you save to the pwnage folder in apps)
whats so hard?
for the people talkin bout customize.
how can you even compare stupid winterboard to customize???
but if customize is only good for editting strings, then screw it. i will wait

Based on my own personal experience and the multiple reports of the same issue I don't think it's a simple DFU thing tattoojack. It seems like you are the special case that is having success and almost all others that avoided the issue were previously pwned. I am very happy you are not having issues like many other members.
I will attempt to uninstall all traced of pwnage this evening and follow you file placement method with the bootloaders and firmwares... etc. Thanks for the tip. Anyone else wanna try this?
