    Default iphone wont restore
    well, iv been modding my iphone alot lately and somehow i did something wrong and now iphoneinterface.exe and itunes dont recognize my iphone, which means i cant change music or anything on my iphone, so i figured i would put it into recovery mode and restore it like i have before, but this time after it says extracting files then prepairing iphone for restore... it gives me a error that says "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1603).", so im thinking of taking it to the apple store, since its only been 9days since i bought it. Do you think they will give me a new one, and will they be able to tell that i was modding it?

    need opinions, thanks in advance

    Nah it will restore. If the download in iTunes completed, simply connect the iPhone to the computer again, and start it in restore mode (by holding home and sleep for 25 seconds). Then iTunes will fix the iPhone.

    Hmm. That'd be the first one I've seen that couldn't be restored. Restarted the computer, and plugged in the iPhone AFTER it was already in Recovery Mode, and iTunes was open?
