    Default iphone 1604 error
    I have a problem with a friends iPhone 1st gen. The issues is when i try to restore the iphone to either 2.0 or 2.0.1 it starts to get the phone ready for restore and when it is about to start to install the firmware i get the 1604 error. I have tried a couple of times i get the same error. I have put the phone in DFU but same issue occurs. If there is anyone can help would gladly appreciate any help.

    have you tried using recovery mode instead of dfu mode. I got a 1600 error when using dfu but worked fine in Recovery mode

    I have solved my problem. I tried everything using my mac then i thought that I might use my brothers laptop which has windows xp on it and then installed itunes 7.5 and then placed the phone in dfu/recovery mode and i managed to restore the iphone to 1.1.4. After that i switched back to my mac and restored the phone with custom 2.0.1 firmware and its working perfectly.
    Hopefully this might help people with a similar problem.
