Exclamation Itunes error 1601 - IPHONE STUCK IN DFU MODE AHHH!

Ok,
Basically i've been trying to downgrade , in stages, 3.1.3 to 1.1.4.
I managed to get from 3.1.3 to 3.1.2.
Then from 3.1.2 to 3.0.
Then I was trying to downgrade 3.0 to 1.1.4 using this tutorial - http://xsellize.com/showthread.php/5...-1-4-iPhone-2G

When it all went wrong...
iTunes stuck on "Preparing iPhone for restore", then after a while popped up with an error message "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occured (1601)."

The iPhone is now stuck in DFU mode. No life on the screen and nothing will bring it out of it.
I've tried using a different pc on windows xp (instead of windows 7 which is what my main pc runs).
I've tried using iTunes 7.5.
I've tried using different firmwares to update to.

HELP PLEASEEEE

why would you even want to go to 1.1.4? its very buggy, no appstore i dont think, no cut copy and paste, no spotlight search, etc. its like the beginning stages of the iphone. apple says theyve learned so much from the iphone, why would you want to go back from when they hardly learned anything from the iphone?

Was your phone ever on 1.1.4? You didn't mention what iphone version you have. If you were never on 1.1.4, you can't downgrade to it.

You need to remove iTunes and Apple Mobile Device support and then reinstall iTunes . See this from Apple:
