Thread: Error 1600 - Wont restore from Custom Firmware

    Default Error 1600 - Wont restore from Custom Firmware
    I am getting error 1600 when trying to restore off a custom firmware. The phone doesn't show the connect to iTunes on the device, it is a blank screen. Before I used a legal AT&T SIM and used jailbreakme.com and bootneuter, however when I put nonlegal AT&T SIM the phone said different SIM detected, which means that I needed to restore off a custom firmware to activate and unlock. However I cannot restore from a custom firmware. How can I fix this?

    Thanks!

    Why not restore then use redsn0w to jailbreak and activate.

    that option does not preserve baseband. Is there another way?

    Generally I'll get error 1600 b/c I don't use Pwnage to go into DFU mode. When this happens I have to build a new custom FW and go through the DFU process in Pwnage tool again.

    Poseidon your info says you're running Snow Leopard / Windows 7... Are you dual booting/vmware/hackint0sh or just have a Mac and PC seperate?

    How do you bypass the error 1600 on 3GS. iREB doesn't work and I need to use the Pwnage Tool Custom 4.0 firmware.
