    After many many attempts to JB my OS4.3, my unit went into DFU mode (using iFaith) and it won't come out of it. How do I remedy this?

    ** the JB process fails during the final parts of the restore process in iTunes. Getting a 1600 error.

    Same problem here. Restore with custom fw seems to almost succeed but gives me a 1600 in the end and My ATV2 is stuck in dfu/recovery mode.

    Stuck in fdu mode

    I had the same problem could not do anything with my windows vista and laptop. I eventually hooked it up to my MacBook and iTunes and it restored it but updated to 4.3
    Maybe something to do with power on USB port as I had to plug my atv2 to the wall to get it to work with ifaith

    I got out of it by just doing the normal apple restore instead of using a Custom Firmware..
