    I tried googling "iPhone error 1603" and got a couple of hits, the first of which was:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ta38603?viewlocale=en_us

    I'd try those first, then start reading the other hits if the apple support page doesn't help. Yes, these are for iPhone, but they should apply to the touch as well.

    Are you completely sure you're in DFU mode, not recovery mode? Because thats how I got out of 4.0 beta 1 ;P

    Oh, and iREB is for 2.2.1. Not 3.1.2/3.
