    So I put 3.0 on my phone this afternoon and then i tried to revert back to 2.2.1 and now my phone is broken, it says connect to itunes and it asks me to restore, I click restore and after ten minues it comes up with the eroor code 1604...

    Ive googled this and tried everything I can think of, any ideas?

    1. Attempt a restore of 2.2.1 in DFU Mode

    2. Get the iTunes error message.

    3. Reset device

    4. Launch QuickPwn

    5. Press next and get past the first 3 steps.

    6. Bam, phone is fixed.

    Try that.

    The PDF specifically states you CANNOT revert back to any other firmware.

    Unless you try the jailbroken way...

    There is no other way around it

    You use Quickpwn to JB your phone. I don't know if it will JB (I don't think so) but I haven't been successful with it so I wouldn't know. If it does JB it all you have to do is restore it in iTunes. So if you're not afraid of the Oogie Boogie JB then give it a try... seems to be the only possible way.

    Yes. Be a good Apple user and shutup and stick with what you're unhappy with. That's a good consumer. Good boy.

    Have you ever jailbreak your phone before? Did you pay $99 to join as developer for the firmware?

    Since you have the 3.0 beta software, you're a developer, so you should have known the risks you were taking when you installed it.

    Except the 3.0 beta is intended for developers and not consumers. And they clearly state in the agreement that once you go to 3.0, you cannot go back. If you are not willing to accept that, then don't upgrade.

    Unfortunately, there are a rash of impatient, non-developers installing 3.0 who have never even seen the agreement.

    The only way to revert back is to jail break it...

    It makes me wonder why some of these people are not willing to jailbreak, but is willing to pay $99 to run beta firmware.

    You should have asked for help before you tried to get 3.0 early.

    ... You installed beta software without reading the fine print, then you're shocked when we tell you that you're stuck?

    How is this our fault?

    The OP has an iPhone developer account, so it was acquired in the right way.

    i guess we all know the risk when we read it apple is serious about there development.

    "Updating devices to iPhone OS 3.0 beta software. By installing iPhone OS 3.0
    beta software on your Authorized Test Devices, these Devices are permanently
    “locked” into testing mode and cannot be restored to earlier versions of iPhone
    OS."

    Doesn't sound like he was trying to develop anything.

    Exactly. Some people need to read more and post less about developing their own headache.
