    Hi all,
    I have an Iphone 3G
    The phone was stuck with the apple logo flashing (I don't know if it was JB)
    I entered DFU and tried to restore, I got Error 1601 - can't pass it...

    = More details =
    When I plug the phone into the PC, Windows doesn't see it
    I entered DFU and the PC recognizes it
    I load iTunes and do a restore, it stays on "preparing Iphone for restore . . . " for about 10 min, the USB is unloaded, but never reloaded and gives the 1601 err.
    Same thing with TSS via tinyumbrella
    Same thing with iREB

    can anyone help me ?
