    Did you reboot the computer after uninstalling wifi sync? Is there any other software that could be messing with the restore? And are you using 3.1.3 and not 3.1.2?

    1604 : says usb error
    1600 : hardware error
    1611 : same idea hardware error
    but i can confirm that it doesn't have any hardware error,,cuz it's running fine now (springboard loads,it boots,charges,makes calls,etc.. just lke any other one but i want to sell it so i need to restore.
    I have an idea... how about the erase all content and settings from iphone itself,,
    one timee i tried it ,, it left my phone without any OS,,so i had to restore in DFU,so I'm afraid of having no OS again and having to restore and BOOM if restore shows errors again,,phone is bricked!!
    What do u think?????

    The hardware error could just be the iPhone's bottom connector.
    Anyway, have you tried restoring in another computer?
    Can you still sync with iTunes?

    If all else fails you could just "Erase all content and settings", Im' too afraid to try it at the moment because I need my iPod today.

    nope,, I told the phone is good about hardware,it still charges well and also is detected in recovery or dfu modes,
    I tried different computer,cable,port still the same idea here
