    Restore to 1.1.1. Get a friend with a mac and run iNdependance. It will bring your phone magically back to life. Good luck.

    Default Nothing on the screen only some kind of lines blicking
    Hello every one

    I think I have the same problem, I replace the battery and now nothing on the screen only a kind of lines blinking and no backlight on the screen...

    It turns on the DFU mode and impossible to restaure it, I've tryed itunes 7.5, 7.6 many verssions of firmware and got allways 1601 error
    (I only have the USB cable)

    Any one knows some thing?
    Many thanks

    well, i had my share of 1601 today... i have a 16 gb 1st gen, running 1.1.4

    my phone was acting out so i reboot it with the sleep button+home button thingy and it fell in the spinning wheel of death endless circle.

    tried pluggin it to itunes and doing a restore, didnt work, gave me 1601.

    tried DFU mode and then restore, it got stuck in "preparing iphone for restore" and then again, error 1601

    so i went all nuts and decided to restore to 2.0, and it worked, now i no longer had a brick, but a fully unusable, yet functional iphone.

    i followed poseidon79's how-to and downgraded it to 1.1.4 with the correct baseband and there you go... back in business again, my iphone is back to normal

    so for the guys with the 1601 and bricked phones, this might be your key.

    P.D. that how-to i said before is in this forum, in the jailbreaking-unlocking section, it's a sticky one
