    i accidentally upgraded to the 3.1.3 software on my iPhone 3g..

    after some searching, i went ahead and followed these instructions:

    http://www.iphonehacks.com/2010/03/how-to-jailbreak-iphone-os-313-iphone-3g-pwnagetool.html

    after entering DFU mode and connecting to iTunes, i selected my custom .ipsw and thought all was well...after about 5-10 minutes i got an error message in iTunes saying the iPhone couldn't be restored..error 1604

    anyone know what i should do next?



    Edit: I went ahead and restored my iPhone to the normal 3.1.3..Still frustrated...

    What is the easiest method for jail breaking an iPhone 3G with 3.1.3??? I've tried redsnow and pwnagetool 3.1.5 to no avail

    I just want to jailbreak, not unlock..

    thanks for any help in advance

    thanks for the link, but these are the exact steps i followed which gave me the 1604 error :(

    i suppose i'll try it again, as I can't recall if i was using chrome or safari as my browser when i DLd the .ipsw file..

    thanks!

    Any luck so far?

    Any luck on this? I have the same issue. I have not seen any fixes for this online. There is as software that works for the 3g on this but not for the 3gs
