    if you keep getting "error 6"
    Then you aren't in DFU mode. I had the same problem. When you complete re sequence you should have a blank screen and then quit winpwn first before opening iTunes to restore. I heard of another way to put in DFU mode. With your iPhone off plug it in while holding down the home button. I've never done it that way, but I hear it works. Good luck. Hope this helps.

    DFU has nothing to do with it, I got error 6 like 20 times and I was in DFU mode.

    This is what I did and it finally worked:

    I updated to 2.01 and did a restore to a previous time.

    Reboot my machine, made new custom pack only cydia and standard partition (basically as basic as I could make it)

    Did the normal steps and it finally worked.

    I was having the same "6" errors for hours until I tried this, seems as if I wasnt in DFU properly

    It looks like you are not in DFU mode but in recovery mode.

    Try the following steps to manually enter DFU mode :

    - Plug iPhone to the PC via USB
    - Switch off the iPhone
    - Hold Power and Home buttons together 10 seconds (precisely!)
    - After 10 seconds, release Power button but keep holding Home button until your PC recognized the iPhone as a USB device
    - The display should be black like it is switched off
    - DFU mode is reached !

    People always seem to get upset saying I have error 6 WTF?!!?, lol, I think most of us had the same problem, its because DFU mode was not reached, only recovery mode. No blank screen?, no DFU mode! :P
    Do not try and fix what is not broken.
