    Tried upgrading to Beta 2 and got Error 1602, log below:

    2009-03-31 23:43:11.000 iTunes.exe[2828:ec4]: iTunes: Restore error 1602

    Accepted the forced restore to 2.2.1 and got Error 1604, log attached as iPhoneUpdater 2.txt.

    After that, I twice attempted deleting the 2.2.1 .ipsw from C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates while switching out USB ports to the other two on my laptop and twice got the same error, attached as 3 and 4.

    Any ideas before I hit the store tomorrow? Thanks very much.

    (For what it's worth, my initial upgrade to 3.0 Beta 1 didn't go smoothly either, and the log for that is attached as iPhoneUpdater.txt).

    No, and I've never needed to do it previously so I'm not sure how it works - are these instructions accurate? Thanks.

    1.) First download the required archive http://www.sendspace.com/file/93fx93 (DFU.zip)
    2.) Extract the archive to the root of your hard drive, should be C:/DFU/
    3.) Connect your iPhone and ignore iTunes
    4.) Goto Start - run
    5.) Next type in “c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu”
    6.) Wait for iPhone to show a “white” screen
    7.) Now you may proceed to downgrade!

    DFU Mode
    DFU Mode

    Put your device into DFU mode and try to do a restore in iTunes.

    Thanks, will do. One last question before I try - is there any way to use DFU mode to restore directly to the new 3.0 build rather than go back to 2.2.1?

    I don't see why not. Just once you are in dfu mode and connected to iTunes do option+restore and choose the 3.0 ipsw to restore with that file instead of 2.2.1

    Question, are you upgrading from 2.2.1 or 3.0 Beta?

    I had reinstalled 2.2.1 after updating from 3.0, and I tried updating straight to 3.0 Beta 2 from 2.2.1 and got the same error. So I updated back to 3.0 and the update to 3.0 Beta went without a hitch. Just wanted to share that, just in case it works for you

    Thanks to both of you - DFU did the trick. And yes, I could indeed Shift-click to choose which .ipsw to install out of DFU - not sure if it wasn't possible in recovery mode or if I didn't try it properly, but thanks for the suggestion

    Kman, I was going from Beta 1 to Beta 2 - I'm inclined to believe it was a hardware failure on my laptop's part, my USB ports haven't run at 100% in a long time.

    I've done all of this as well, but no luck on getting to restore.

    I still get the 1604 error code.

    I even called Apple, re-installed iTunes, used a different Apple usb cord, and tried it on a different computer...still get Error Code 1604

    Absolutely not. Not only is it against forum rules, but it's illegal. :rolleyes:
