    So I made a custom firmware with Pwnagetool and everything went well, then when I go to install it on the iphone 3G using iTunes it tells me something like "An unknown error occurred, restore failed". Once in a while it will give me either error 4 or another one, error 16xx (i forget the last two numbers). And while performing the restore it gets to "Preparing iPhone for restore" but nothing happens on the screen or the phone until the error pops up.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    I tried it on both 10.5.6 and Vista, iTunes 8.2.

    Upgrade to 10.5.7 and try again. :) Also, make sure the phone is in DFU mode.

    Redownloaded original and re-pwnd it, and the problems still there.

    Done. And yes I made sure of DFU mode :)

    Didn't help though.
