    Yeah I got this too. Then I tried DFU and got error 1600.

    My solution was to restore to stock and use Blackra1n instead.

    my solution was to quit PwnageTool.. after I closed PwnageTool and tried to do the restore it worked without any problems.

    So if you still have PwnageTool open when restoring through iTunes, close PwnageTool and try to restore again.

    i read that 1604 means corrupted ipsw file so i redownloaded the new firmware and just jb.
