    1st Gen 2G iPhone 8GB
    Music stopped and screen went white and when I came home to attempt a restore I got the "Iphone could not be restored" with a 1011 error.

    Tried it both on 3.1.3 on Snow Leopard and Windows 7 with latest version of iTunes.

    Put the phone in DFU mode and restore. And stop using the term "brick" incorrectly.

    I should have mentioned I was in restore mode.

    Sorry for the "bricked" misunderstanding.

    There is no "Restore Mode." Do you mean "Recovery Mode"? If so, that is not the same as DFU mode.

    Okay. I have entered DFU mode (made 10 attempts and since my screen is black I can only assume I was in DFU mode. One of them had to work).

    Same result.

    1. Download Blackra!n
    2. Run the little program
    3. while it is searching for your iphone put it in DFU mode
    4. soon the iphone screen will turn black
    5. keep it black for about 30 seconds to a minute.
    6. then hard restart your iphone.
    7. It should work.

    Thanks for your response. Unfortunatly that did not work either. I tried it about three different times and tried to restore using a custom 3.1.2 and the official 3.1.3

    Would something like iREB be an idea?

    It sounds stupid but by shaking and dropping my iPhone off the ground about 1.5 feet I was able to get the screen to work and now no errors when restoring. Not an ideal fix I know but a fix nonetheless (for now)
