    You have to put the phone into DFU mode or you will receive this error every time.

    Turn off the phone while it is connected to usb.
    hold power + home button for EXACTLY 10 seconds.
    release the power button and continue holding the home button for EXACTLY 10 seconds.
    let go of the home button. fire up itunes. restore your custom ipsw.


    That oughtta do it.

    I made an error in my last post. The error code is 1(not 6)


    And i already been putting my phone in dfu mode correctly. For some reason the official restore works perfect with no problems. But when I try the custom restore I get "error code 1".



    Any suggestions??

    What does your screen look like when you put it in DFU mode?

    Also remake the image and try again.
