Ok, this is really frustrating me - if anyone can please help I'd appreciate it.

I followed the Pwnage 2.0 Guide For Windows on here, and also followed the other method related, like the one from Haklabs and others.

Ok, so I followed each guide, like.... 8329 times... Please tell me if I'm missing something.

I was running on 1.1.4 unlocked with ZiPhone 3.0, but did a full fresh restore back to 1.1.4 - so it was back to ACTIVATE me screen/emergency call.

I ran Winpwn - browsed for 1.1.4, then clicked iPwner.

After about 2 minutes - it said my my phone has been winpwned - but the phone was still on the ACTIVATE me screen/emergency call - is this supposed to happen?

Next step was to put the phone on DFU mode on iTunes and shift+browse for the custom 2.0, and that is what I did.

I keep getting the 1600 error.... It won't restore to 2.0.

I've repeated the steps over and over and over and over.

FACTS:
-I am on 7.7 iTunes
-I have the custom firmware
-My phone is not bricked, I am back on 1.1.4 unlocked right now - I did however had issues restoring it back to 1.1.4 but I got it working.
