    Try this.....Error 1600: On OSX, try mkdir ~/Library/iTunes/”Device Support”. If that directory is already there, try removing any files in it.

    You can use quickpwn for the mac to put the phone into dfu mode....as soon as the screen goes blank un-plug the phone and quit the quickpwn. Now plug the phone back up and use itunes to restore.

    SwapTunes is the Devil. You're on a Mac, so you're getting great help from Zwayne, but have faith -- there is light at the end of the tunnel. Good folks on IRC held my hand through it when I fudged it all up.

    yea it is lol. i have hope and i go to download quickpwn again and now when it finishes downloading it says verification fail. im not having a good few days...

    i saw a video on youtube saying use quickpwn for it. but now my mac is messed up and i cant download quickpwn again, my brother erased it. but my friend has quickpwn on a windows computer and is going to let me use it. is it okay going to a mac to pc to restore it? i also found this post. http://www.modmyi.com/forums/windows...y-restore.html
