Hi guys Just trying to salvage something from my iPhone 3G that Ive had returned from an ebay buyer (long story!). So I got a 1601 error on my iPhone 3G. There is currently absolutely nothing on my iPhone's screen at the moment (no activity) - however I am able to get it in DFU mode and it shows in itunes. I tried to restore it to 4.2.1 which is when I hit the 1601 error message. It was running 4.2.1 on 05.15.04 before. Everything I have a read on the net so far seems to suggest iReb is the way to go on Windows although many of the articles are quite dated now. Is this still recommended? A guide I am yet to try but looks OK is this one: http://www.idownloadblog.com/2010/02/16/fix-error-1600-1601-1602-1603-1604/ Can anyone recommend this?
