    Hey all,

    I have a friend's iPhone after he seemingly bricked it by using blackra1n and then wanting to unlock it so he used blacksno and then he said he got something called buetbunueter and he thinks he hit a wrong button and screwed it all up.

    I started off by trying a simple restore of the iPhone as that is basically the only thing that will come up consistently. Unfortunately I get error 23 and the phone cannot be restored. I've tried 1.1.2, 3.1.2, and a custom 3.1.2 from Pwnage.

    I then went into DFU mode and tried all 3 firmwares again, but this time I got error 1600. So, yet another failure.

    I've tried iRecovery and that doesn't seem to help and I've tried using blackra1n again but it just seems to hang on the logo when it is supposed to be rebooting.

    Anyone have any ideas or tips, I've been googling for about 2 hours and have seem way too many blogs...

    Thanks!

    Why in the world did he use blacksn0w? That's clearly labeled as a 3G/3GS unlock.

    That said, BootNeuter was the right solution. It shouldn't cause any problems as long as he doesn't close it while BootNeuter is running. I understand that interrupting it while it is flashing can result in a permanently bricked S-Gold radio controller.

    All that said, ae you sure you were in DFU Mode? Was the screen completely blank? If not, you were not in DFU Mode. If you were, have you tried regular recovery mode?

    As for BlackSn0w...He's not exactly computer brilliant...

    And I'm quite sure I was in DFU, screen was black yet iTunes recognized an iPhone in recovery mode.

    I've also tried regular recovery mode, which I believe is just holding the Home and Power buttons until the "Plug into iTunes" message appears on the phone.

    Yes regular recovery is by switching the phone off, unplugged.

    Then plug it in with you holding the home button, blank screen with connect to itunes will show then. DFU is usually blank.

    OP: If you don't do anything else, what happens when you turn the phone on?

    DFU is always blank. If there is anything on the screen, it's not DFU mode.
