    i know ive heard or people try to restore, then pull the cable mid way, delete things through ssh

  8. #8
    yeah deleting through ssh sounds like it might work

  9. #9
    Yeah anything that would interrupt a restore or upgrade will DEF do the trick...

    Upgrade to 1.2(2.0) then you will get a pink screen. Then downgrade to 1.1.4 It will glitch and be stuck at recovery(or DFU) mode. I did this and go new phone

    I pwned to 2.0 to test and then DFU restored to 1.1.4 and got error 1600 I think and all I had to do was restore it with a different computer and it went fine.

    When i restore to an original firmware
    i have the same problem when i start to restore it works fine until i get the verify firmware then it says i have the 1015 unknown error message...

    is there anyway to fix this?

    When i try to restore to a custom ipsw that i built through pwnage tool it comes up with the 1604 unknown error message....

    as of right now my iphone turns on but goes straight to the connect to itunes screen and i can turn it off.

    DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS?

    Why do you wanna break it in the first place?

    Seems very illogical to break something that's not broken...

    just change the permissions of the springboard executable file to like 000 so that when u reboot, it just stays on the silver apple forever.
    hit thanks if thanks are due.
