    try to use winpwn again, repeat but this time with iphone firmware...


    try to use idemocracy 3, plug it in and see if it detects your iphone... if it does, then you're probably ok... use it to refurbish phone, look for the options it's not hard.....


    you were saying iTunes detects your phone as ipod, most probably you could try to use ziphone to refurbish your phone. see what happens...


    connect your iphone to the computer, do a hard reset when you're connected to iTunes... I always count on pressing home and sleep button until iphone picture in itunes disappear (in your case probably it's ipodtouch picture) until it disappears...


    let your phone die out completely if you cant switch it off... if you can switch it off, then do it... then, press the home button for 3 seconds, while holding the button, connect to computer while still pressing it until something comes up the screen

    My comment is to use ziphone, idemocracy 3, winpwn, iLiberty+, and patience........ tell me how it goes.....

    Hi! I have the exact same problem! stupid winpwn does not recognise that the firmware is wrong... :-(

    My iPhone is completely black! It does not activate the screen anymore. But iPhone sees the iPhone as an iPod and wants to recover, but that fails with error code 1604... Even if I manually select the iPhone restore firmware iTunes fails with error code 5.

    > try to use winpwn again, repeat but this time with iphone firmware...

    winpwn says this:

    10.07.2008 17:27:40 - Be sure to connect an iPhone!
    10.07.2008 17:27:41 - Debug level:1

    10.07.2008 17:27:51 - Starting pwnage
    Then, nothing happens....

    > try to use idemocracy 3

    iDemocracy says "iPhone not connected." even if iTunes runs in the background seeing iPhone (iPod) in recovery mode...

    > press the home button for 3 seconds, while holding the button, connect to computer while still pressing it until something comes up the screen

    There is nothing on the screen :-( No reaction at all from the iPhone....

    PLEASE HELP :-((

    EDIT: WAIT! I did it!! Juhuu!

    After dozens of times pressing home and off-button together and putting the iphone into the dock and so on this time it worked!

    pressed home and off-buttom für 20 seconds, butting the phone into the dock while holding both buttons, releasing the off-button still holding the home-button and iTunes finally founds an IPHONE in recovery mode (the screen of the iphone was black all the time during this operation...). No I was able to recover, "do it all" with ziphone and recover the backup of the phone....

    phuuu.... thanks guys! :-)

    I am suffering the same problem. I have tried to follow all of your advice, but with no luck. Anyone else can help?

    I used pwnage tool 1.1, and mistaken used the ipod update instead of the iphone update 1.1.4. Stupid me. Now the screen is blank, but in DFU mode. iTunes sees it as an iPod, and wants to recover it. I have tried to used the various restores and custom restores, but no change.

    What would happen if I took it to the Apple Genius Bar? Is there someone in Houston, who can fix it? I replied to a few postings on craigslist for folks who can fix iphone problems.
