    so I bought a bricked iphone off an acquaintance with the hope that I can get it running again. He tried doing a firmware upgrade and bricked it, now when you turn it on you just get the apple picture with the usb cable

    what I've tried doing so far is put the iphone in DFU mode while connected and with itunes running. Try to do the restore function through itunes and I continually get the 1604 error after a few minutes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled itunes with the same result. I uninstalled the latest itunes and installed 7.5, tried loading 1.1.4 which I'm guessing is pretty close to finishing when I get a 1011 error

    any suggestions? i'm at my wits end here

    thank you

    oh and if I attempt restore 2.0.2 through itunes 7.5 it gives me a 1601 error

    To restore it to 2.0.2 you need itunes 7.7. Upgrade tunes and then try restore.
