    Try just hitting the restore butrton in iTunes. Hit restore & update button in the pop-up box afterwards. This should take it to FW 1.1.4 and all should be well. Then you can start your jailbreaking/unlocking/hacking project all over again.

    Is that an iPhone in your pocket?

    DFU mode. Use iLiberty to get it there, then restore. Then avoid ZiPhone for the rest of your iPhone days.

    Hey - check out my posted solution to a similar situation. Search in this forum for "iPhone restore problem "unknown error occurred (5)"". Would've pasted a link here, but on my iPhone... The only C&P method I know of is kinda cumbersome. Maybe they'll add the function in 2.0? hehe

    The main points in my other post are to remove the SIM card prior to a restore attempt, and make sure the phone is truly in DFU, not recovery. That means black screen, NOT the cord and logo screen.

    Good luck - hope it helps.

    1- Change the USB port the phone is plugged in to. Do not plug the phone back in yet.

    2- Reboot the computer then plug the phone in and immediately restart the phone in DFU WHILE CONNECTED to the computer.

    3- Hit restore.

    Default possible reason for error message
    I have the exact same problem. i have tried to un+re-install itoonz countless times, changed the usb port (tried all four) and have finally found a webpage somewhere that says it is linked to battery power aswell, maybe not enough to power the phone while it is in normal mode, but i have found a new battery for 16 incl P+P. it comes with tools and instructions. i dont recommend trying this(so you cant sue me). i will let you know how it goes when i try it though. (ps my battery got REALLY hot for no reason and now only works when its plugged in and this is another reason for trying a new battery). The link to this site where you can buy the battery is underneath
    at Battery Megastore Battery (includes fitting tools and full instructions) Mobile Phone Batteries

    Incase you were thinking you can't send off you iPhone for a new battery if you have tried to unlock you iPhone and my guesses are that its an american iPhone that came with a AT+T chip which means you would have to send it off to america to get it fixed as it was bought in that country.

    Good luck and let me know if you find any way that fixes your phone

    I had the same problem..All I did was download Quickpwn or Winpwn and plugged my phone up, followed the steps and it worked for me. You just have to download the 2 boot files off the web.

    LOL at least you searched, resurrected an old *** thread...

    anyways, have you tried putting the phone into recovery mode and restoring?
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!
