    Well there is way to get rid of this error all you need to do is to follow the steps as mentioned:

    * You need to change the USB port of the phone is plugged in to. Don't plug the device.
    * Restart the computer then plug the phone in and immediately restart the phone in DFU WHILE CONNECTED to the computer.
    * Now hit restore

    Additional info on this error 1611:

    Error 1611: This error may indicate a hardware issue with your device. Follow the steps in this article. Also attempt to restore while connected with a known-good 30-pin Dock Connector cable, computer, and network to isolate this issue to the device. The MAC address being missing or the IMEI being the default value (00 499901 064000 0) can also confirm a hardware issue. Out-of-date or incorrectly configured proxy or security software, such as FoxyProxy, can cause error 1611. To troubleshoot third-party security software, follow these steps.
