    Hi everyone,

    I'm out of ideas of what to do.

    Quite simply- iTunes is not accepting my custom IPSW's.

    Once in pwnedDFU mode (via Redsnow), I go to iTunes, clicked shift+restore, and no matter what I get error 10.

    My details are as follows:

    iPhone 3GS (pre-2011 serial #)
    iOS 4.3.5
    Baseband 05.13.04 (as in other post, had to go to ipad baseband then downgrade)
    Unlocked (can use any Sim card)

    IPSW version "iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw"
    iTunes version
    Redsnow version "win_0.9.14b2"

    What I've tried (nothing worked):
    IPSW 5.1
    IPSW 5.1.1
    Using a different USB port
    Changing the host file (.gs)
    Creating custom IPSW's with Redsn0w & snowbreeze
    Using Pwned DFU and normal DFU

    Can anyone help here? I must be doing something wrong!

    The Jailbreak Community
    A 1600 error means you did not have the phone in pwnedDFU mode (using Redsn0w)

    That is required for installing a No_BB IPSW

    Go to iClarified.com for a tutorial.

    Yep I am aware of this, I forgot to write that in. Everytime I try I am in Pwned DFU mode. I have checked all the iclarified turorials, and performed them a number of times. I've redownloaded the IPSW too...

    After all the solution was really simple- I just needed the latest iTunes (

    Now it's time for me to unlock it...
