    I got "error 6" and it was because I wasn't reallyin DFU mode. Make sure you are really in DFU and you quit the pwnage tool before you open iTunes and try to restore.

    I also tried closing winpwn after doing that and still nothing

    Since I dont need to unlock or anything this is what I have checked

    Cydia

    And nothing elese

    everything in advanced tab is unchecked and youtube fix is unchecked

    I hit create firmware and then i pressed ipwner selected the CUSTOM firmware and then pressed ok....

    i close everything then put my iphone into dfu mode (turn off phone hold sleep and home button until it turns back on then let go off the sleep button so it would show the itunes symbol with the wire on the bottom)

    went on itunes I pressed ok for that restore your itunes crap, then i shift clicked selected my custom firmware on the desktop and then it extracts then shows up with the error 6 window

    EDIT: I think I figured out what i did wrong.... I never went on dfu mode i was on restore mode..... dfu mode is a black screen restore mode shows the wire and the ituns logo.... Im going to try it again and see if it works.
    .

    Edit2: yessss it finnally works,,

    So remember this

    PEOPLE WHO ARE GETTING ERROR 6 ARE NOT IN DFU MODE (where theres nothing but a black screen) YOU ARE PROBABLY IN RESTORE MODE (cable and itunes logo screen)

    DFU mode steps:

    - Attach the phone to the pc
    - Turn the phone off
    - Hold power and home together for *exactly* 10 seconds
    - Release power but keep holding home until the pc beeps as a USB device is recognized.

    At no point will the display come on. If it does, you need to try again and again or you will " never " get it this to work " . " .

    thanks -this was my issue last night. I think you have to turn the phone off to get DFU mode, otherwise it will just go into recovery mode correct? I have the customer firmware and I just restored last night because of error 6. I think your instructions will help me. I'm gonna try later.

    edit: this worked - thanks!

    How can a person getin to DFU mode with a 2G iphone, running 2.0 Software, if your Power button is broken and you can't put it in to DFU mode that way?

    your sleep button is broken? how do you put ure iphone to sleep when done using it?

    You can probably try Ziphone and use the advanced tab for putting it on dfu mode
