    I get the same message when trying to do it on iPhone 1. I tried redoing the fw 10 times, I finally gave up.

    At the risk of asking the obvious, are you sure it's in DFU? It's a common error.

    100,000,000% Positive, i hold the home and sleep/wake button, the screen goes black, let go of sleep/wake, and continue holding home till it pops up in itunes saying its detected in in DFU and that i have to restore. What could possibly be wrong! maybe im making the custom fw wrong? i dont know? umm. if anyone has msn and can help me add me and walk me through it? [email protected]

    just say your here about the dfu thing, thanks a bunch!

    I had a similar problem last night with my 1st gen iPhone (error 6). All I did to fix it was restore with an original untouched 2.0 firmware, then tried installing a custom 2.0 firmware. I hope this help!

    after you make the custom firmware did you pwn itunes as well?

    if itunes isn't pwned it will error because it can detect flaws in the firmware and prevents it from restoring...
    Still a bit fresh at this...and will evolve to FRESH in a Bel Air type of way!

    Did you already have the 2.0 FW on your comp, or did you dl it with winpwn? You might wanna check the torrents and try a diff 2.0 to pwn. There might have been a prob with the 2.0 FW you used.
