    -iPhone 4
    -iOS 4.0.1
    -Jailbroken with
    -SHSH blobs saved, up to and including 4.2.1

    I tried to restore the iPhone this morning, using the latest tinyUmbrella, and something went horrible wrong. iTunes gave me error 1600, as opposed to the regular 1004 it is supposed to. It seems to be stuck in 'recovery mode' (not DFU), and there is no way to get it out. Plugging it into my computer makes iTunes open and say that an iPhone is in recovery mode and has to be restored, but the restore never finishes successfully.

    I can not for the life of me get the phone to show any signs of life. The screen is black, even when I hold the power button down for 10+ seconds. Opening tinyUmbrella now, it doesn't even recognize the phone (there is nothing in the left tab, as if nothing is connected.)

    Wtf do i do?

    It sounds like it's in DFU mode. If you can't restore it try rebooting your computer. Sometimes that makes things talk again.

    You need to put your phone into DFU mode and restore it with DFU mode.
