Fix 1600, 1601, 1603 & 1604 While Restoring iOS 4.3.3 Custom IPSW [How-To Guide]

If you will try to restore iOS 4.3.3 custom IPSW on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad without using iREB, iTunes will throw 16xx error. This is because iBoot (Bootloader) of your iDevice is smart enough to differentiate between a stock IPSW and a custom IPSW. When your iBoot sees that you are trying to restore a custom IPSW, it tells iTunes not to restore this firmware on your iDevice. To fix this, you need to patch your iBoot using Geohot's Limera1n exploit.

This guide will teach you how you can put your iDevice into Pwned DFU Mode using iREB RC4 on Windows. If you are a Mac user, follow this guide to use Redsn0w as an iREB alternative on Mac OS X. Once you iDevice is in Pwned DFU Mode, you can restore custom iOS 4.3.3 IPSW through iTunes without getting any 16xx (1600, 1601, 1603 & 1604) error.

  1. Download iREB RC4 for Windows from here and extract the ZIP file on your desktop.
  2. Connect your iDevice to your PC via USB cable and launch iREB-r4.exe
  3. iREB for iOS 4.3.3 (Select iDevice)

  4. Now use the following instructions to put your iDevice into normal DFU mode:
    • Make sure your iDevice is properly connected to your PC and iTunes is not running in background. Turn OFF your iDevice completely by pressing the Power button.

    iREB for iOS 4.3.3 (Prepare for DFU)

    • Press the Home+Power button at the same time for 10 seconds.

    iREB for iOS 4.3.3 (Home+Power Button)

    • After 10 seconds, release the Power button but keep holding the Home button until iREB detects your iDevice in DFU mode.

    iREB for iOS 4.3.3 (Release Power Button)

  5. As soon as iREB will detect your iDevice in DFU mode, it will patch its iBoot with Limera1n exploit. Whole patching process usually takes less than 10 seconds.
  6. iREB for iOS 4.3.3 (Exploiting with Limera1n)

  7. Once done, iREB will display a confirmation message stating that your iDevice is now in Pwned DFU state and all you need is to restore it using iTunes.
  8. iREB (Pwned DFU Mode)

  9. Do NOT disconnect your iDevice from your PC. Launch iTunes and select your iDevice from the side-panel:
  10. iTunes (Select iDevice)

  11. Hold down the SHIFT key on keyboard and click on the Restore button.
  12. iTunes (Restore)

  13. Browse for iOS 4.3.3 custom IPSW and click OK to begin the restore process. Hopefully you will not get any 16xx iTunes error during the restore process.
  14. Restore iOS 4.3.3 Custom IPSW

    what happens if you geta 1600 messsage

  •  
    frustrated_x_16004 years, 6 months ago

    My wife has an iPhone4 (device1) running ios 5.01 with bb 1.59.01, jailbroken with redsn0w and unlocked. I have another iPhone4 (device2) which I am using with ios 5.1 (tethered jailbreak with redsn0w) and bb 4.10.01 connecting via bluetooth to a skyroam device using GMate app installed on device2 for the telephone functions. I am swapping device1 for the unlocked device2 (we live overseas and I am heavily dependent on the phone much more than she is, thus the swap). I succesfully transferred and restored all of the data from device1 onto device2 which eliminated my data from the devices. When I tried to wipe device1 in similar manner as device2 to allow for my data to be loaded, I originally received error 3194 and finally resolved it by changing computers and adding the redirect in the host file to Saurik servers.

    Now I am stuck on the error 1600 code and cannot get past it. I have tried with redsn0w  and did a clean download of the ipsw and rebuild to a custom ipsw to no avail. I then used iREB but still hit the error 1600. I have tried multiple times, including rebooting of both device and pc, but am still stuck.

    Anyone with any ideas on how to resolve this?

      Are you attempting to downgrade from iOS 5.x to iOS 4.x ? If so, consider using a custom IPSW for your restore instead of the stock.

    •  
      Pramod4 years, 10 months ago

      Unfortunately, restores / downgrades aren’t possible w/o having their resp SHSH already saved on Cydia / TU. So you can drop the idea of restoring to iOS 4.3.3.

      Pramod4 years, 11 months ago

      You need to put your device into a pwned DFU mode first. Use iReb / Redsn0w to perform the same & then retry.

    I did it all and it works fine with the restoring, but after the restore finish. My ipod still in DFU mode and it won’t started at all

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 1 month ago

      Using TU’s TSS Server option will not help if your iPod didn’t have any SHSH blobs saved locally on your machine to begin with. Confirm first to see if Cydia has any & then perform the restore. Read http://bit.ly/oKCpYX.

    Please i need help , i was working on 4.3.4 and i decided to upgrade to 4.3.5 jailbreak.

    and nothing is happening.still recovery mode

      That’s right, neither iReb nor FixRec is currently updated to work with iOS 4.3.4/4.3.5 recovery loops.

    Can I still use this method after the release of the 4.3.5 ?
    I have iPhone4 – iOS 4.1.0 and I want to update to 4.3.3 for the sake of untethered jailbreaking.
    tnx a lot :D

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 1 month ago

      Only if you have an SHSH blob saved for you device for iOS 4.3.3 on Cydia (http://bit.ly/p07pX2). Updating to iOS 4.3.5 will still give you a tethered JB.

    i already using that method with iREB, but after restore the 4.3.3 firmware i always get 16xx error, and my iPod still on a blackscreen mode until now, i dont know what to do now, maybe you can help me.

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 1 month ago

      Use Redsn0w instead of iReb to achieve this. Read http://bit.ly/qIa3E7. Also avoid using TU & (use edited hosts file) for your restores if your using it in the first place.

    i tried tinymbrella,fixrecouery43,the above thing and the easyrecover
    they just didnt work

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 2 months ago

      Use Redsn0w instead to put your device in a Pwned DFU state. All other tools that you tried using are only used if your stuck in a recovery loop after a fresh stock iOS installation & not to be used if you have failed to enter the DFU mode.

      And after using Ultrasn0w from Cydia, your not able to get a signal. Have you tried using a SIM from a different carrier as well to see if its the same case?

  •  
    Matthew5 years, 2 months ago

    Yes unfortunately. I have solved. Sn0wbreeze 2.7.3. Custom 4.3.3 ipsw. Pwned DFU. Shift/restore in itunes on custom ipsw (4.3.3). SOLVED.

    ISSUE: no signal!!

    Did custom ipsw downgrade to 4.1 on Sn0wbreeze 2.1 but SAME PROB
    Went back to 4.3.3 and same prob.

      Which Modem FW are you on? Does your BB belong to an Ultrasn0w supported BB? Only then can you unlock your iP3GS using Ultrasn0w.

    Dario5 years, 2 months ago

    any fix would be good, I´m thinking about doing a regular “restore” from itunes, even if I have to update to a non available jailbreak OS

    Any ideas? about this 1013 error?

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 2 months ago

      Since you already have an updated BB version, its no more possible for you to restore your iP3G/3GS using the stock Apple IPSW. Using a custom IPSW is your only way out of this error. You may also use FixRec43 http://bit.ly/qbir0p if your in a recovery loop, but using a custom IPSW is always better.

  •  
    Dario5 years, 2 months ago

    I already did it, selecting the file you mentioned before, the iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw 666M since y realized this was a match to the SHSH I had, but now I got the 1013 error, and again stuck at the black screen with the connect to itunes image?

    HEEELP, i´m about to freak out

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 2 months ago

      At this point, jailbreak your iP4 using Redsn0wRC18 on iOS 4.3.3.

  •  
    Dario5 years, 2 months ago

    Are the steps mentioned above the ones I need to follow or is there something else I need to know?
    This is what I have done so far after my iphone 4 started acting really weird on the last days, while I had the 4.3.2 os with jailbreak.

    I saved the SHSH with tinyumbrella for 4.3.3 and activated TSS server

    Did the shift+restore step at itunes and selected my saved firmware iPhone3,1_4.3_8F190_Restore which is 669 MB, I didn´t activate the DFU mode.

    I got the 1604 error and now all I get is the black screen with the connect to itunes image.

    And one more question, I got the 1604 failure while installing the 4.3.3 firmware with a file named iPhone3,1_4.3_8F190_Restore size 669 MB (702,264,955 bytes), should I continue to use this firmware or restore to the one you mentioned iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw 666MB?

    SOS!!!

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 2 months ago

      File size difference isn’t what’s causing this issue. A Pwned DFU state is always a necessity for every custom/stock IPSW restore you try. Better than iReb, use Redsn0w as an alternative to put your device into a Pwned DFU state and then continue. This should very well get you out of any 16xx errors. Read this http://bit.ly/pioV9v and then start TU for the restore.

  •  
    Matthew5 years, 2 months ago

    I am having a very similar problem on 3gs 4.3.3 fw. I restored my iphone because a buyer had spitefully left a passcode lock on and i had to restore it to get rid of the passcode.
    Since I had gotten a recovery loop phone back to normal before I figured I could do it again but for some reason will not work.

    I am livid, I have worked so long on this damn phone and it is the baine of my life.

    I have tried methods I have been unaquainted with previously such as iReb, Tiny Umbrella (Fix recovery), iRecovery, EVERY single software you can imagine but to no avail.

    If there is anyone that can point me in the right direction. :( Very annoyed ith jailbroken phones!!!!

      The restore itself will erase everything that you possibly had on your iPT.

  •  
    Brent825 years, 3 months ago

    Hey Wolverine. Been reading your responses and you’re phenomenal at helping people.

    1.) My iPhone 4 (AT&T) went into permanent recovery mode after I simply connected it to sync to 4.3.3 upgrade. (4.3.3 is in my iTunes registry to restore to, but I’m not sure if I was 4.3.2 trying to upgrade to it, or if I was on 4.3.3 to begin with. My guess is the latter). I’VE NEVER JAILBROKEN MY PHONE BEFORE.

    2.) iTunes wants me to restore, but that will obviously erase my past week and a half’s photos/data on it (including the cure for HIV, cancer, and bad breath). So instead of restoring it and losing EVERYTHING (why God — and no lectures about syncing regularly b/c I do ;) My brother is an ex-apple genius bar dude and he says I’m screwed with the data recovery. But he’s also very VERY anti-jailbreaking, so he didn’t advise this.

    3.) I just want to jailbreak my iPhone 4, get in, get out, and then re-virginize my phone. I looked into a few progs (Redsnow, iFaith, RecBoot, iRecovery, iREB, iPhone explorer, Blackra1n), the list goes on and on. But I read I can’t downgrade to a way lower version (4.2.1, 1.1.4 etc, only can restore to my current version (4.3.1 – 4.3.3?) for it to take hold?). I actually tried recboot (stupidly, already on it ;), tinyumbrella ifixrecovery (4.3.3. with Zlib.dll patch, iPhone Recovery, which worked amazingly well for 99% of the population except for me (probably because I don’t have a proper firmware restored on my phone yet — but keep in mind that that will erase my data I want to recover, right?). The tinyumbrella fixrecovery 4.3.3 is already out of date and identified by Apple’s software if I’m not mistaken. It just kept looping over & over 100 times in recovery mode). So I quit screwing/multilayering my phone with jailbreakers. Didn’t want to cause any physical errors (nands, etc).

    4.) So far I like GreenPois0n the best b/c it doesn’t have you extract SHSH blobs and upload them to Cydia? (I’ve only been researching jailbreaking for two days and this is practically its own language like the Na’avi). With GreenPois0n 4.3.3 (RC7) you just push a button, install, unplug, and you can view your files on yer damn phone supposedly right? Only problem is, the 4.3.3 just came out like a few days ago (all the web raise their stylus pens!!!). Needless to say I panicked a little when this happened to my phone and I can’t get these incredible pics of me with a band whose concert I went to, amongst a ton of other good files.

    4.)The problem with GreenPois0n 4.3.3 (RC7) coming out only 3 days ago is that no one can get a hold of it yet… it’s stuck behind these malicious malware “Gimme yer zipcode, CC#, SSN#, DOB, blood type, complete list of sexual partners and then maybe you can have it” walls, and it’s not on any torrent sites I can see. Hacking is stressful! I also tried installing the GreenPois0n 4.2.1 version to no avail: it stops half-way through installing (luckily iTunes still recognizes it and it’s not a “brick”.

    5.) Today I reinstalled iTunes (10.3.something now), still has the same 666 MB 4.3.3 iOS firmware in the iTunes folder I unhid and copied to my desktop. I used Redsn0w 0.9.6rc18 and 0.9.6rc16 and both take me as far as the “Jailbreaking Fileserver” screen, but only gets 10% though, and has that “BusyWatchdogTimeout, no successful firmware download after 60000 ms!! Giving up…” line that some other people in here have been having.

    -I used myself as a system administrator when using the Redsnow software
    – Used windows XP compatibility SP2 (and also tried SP3 independently).
    – Opened Redsnow in task manager and gave the work to 1 core processor (I have only 2 processors).

    But none of those tricks worked. Again, I think it’s because it’s that I have no stable firmware on it? I thought maybe I could put my phone maybe into Pwned DFU mode using iREB to patch the iBoot in my phone maybe using that video you showed? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nMovKzvuIw&feature=youtu.be

    I just don’t know what to do from there on. I just want to pull out my files and restore in iTunes the normal way after! lol. Am I overcomplicating things?

    I’ve never used JB software or used SHSH blobs with Cydia, so I can’t retrieve blobs from Cydia using that tinyumbrella blob recovery method I don’t think, can I?

    Thanks in advance!

    -Brent

      Hello,

      1. Can you exactly tell me when did your iPhone go into the Recovery Loop? If you haven’t backed up your data before you Restored, the data could be pretty much erased. Cannot speculate anything unless you tell me how did you got there.

      2. Your brother is right, if you had encountered this RecoveryError while restoring, we can safely assume that your data is erased.

      3. Yes, the reason why your not able to restore using FixRec, is simply because it cannot find an iOS on your iDevice. Nope, TU is not outdated as it still works for every iPhone on the iOS 4.3.3 still. Apple cannot block it in anyway.

      4. The last release of Greenpois0n supports only upto 4.2.1. There is no GreenPois0nRC7 that supports iOS 4.3.3 and therefore is an absolute fake. It’ll execute to a certain point and then simply get stuck. Its only a malware spreading across the internet in the name of jailbreak and is a complete fake.

      Note: You definitely need to restore via iTunes to the latest FW 4.3.3 simply because your iOS has crashed and in the middle of the process errored out. All the recovery/DFU tools basically needs an iOS running on your iDevice to interact with which in your case it is definitely missing.

      •  
        Brent5 years, 3 months ago

        Hey Pramod,

        I wasn’t updating I don’t think actually. I just connected my iPhone to sync it and iTunes just said it couldn’t find my iPhone all the sudden when it happened. I don’t think that it was reinstalling another iOS on my phone. It’s severely annoying when it does this.

        I’ll stay away from the GreenPois0n 4.3.3/RC7 then. Thanks!

        I don’t want to restore using iTunes just yet! I want to maybe try iREB or iRecovery first? Are they very involved? I don’t want to keep spending so much time on this, but at the same time, if they’re relatively easy to install and do, then it’s definitely worth a shot.

        I’m also just trying to go on the iTunes troubleshooting site and make sure all my mobiledevice and 3rd party security software, etc etc is installed correctly, needs repairing, or is interfering with the sync. Might also be a reason it “cannot find my iPhone” ad it was put into recovery mode.

        Do you have the quickest/easiest link to the iREB or iRecovery installation sites? Many sites have them, but some make it SO INVOLVED and hard to quickly figure out. Any right off the bat you know that suck any less?

        Thanks!

        •  
          Pramod5 years, 3 months ago

          Well your just looking at the guide on how to use iReb right now. :)
          If you weren’t updating and it just happened all of a sudden, Recovery tools are your best option here. First, try your hands at FixRec 4.3 just like how its shown here http://bit.ly/lN0uF4. I’m quite sure that iReb does work, though I would prefer you to use FixRec instead. This is as easy as it gets, believe me. :)
          Try FixRec and let me know how it goes.

          •  
            Brent5 years, 3 months ago

            I tried fixrec, but it had an error with firmware past 6000 something and gave up.

            Does this mean I can’t use iREB either? Is my firmware screwed up to the point where I can’t extract my phone data/pictures???

          •  
            Pramod5 years, 3 months ago

            Recovery tools definitely needs an iOS to work on. If the iOS is missing, then it means that everything has been erased from your iDevice.

          •  
            Brent5 years, 3 months ago

            If I use iREB to restore iOS 4.3.3 that will defeat the whole purpose of what I’m trying to do by erasing all my pictures/data while my iPhone 4 is in recovery mode, correct? Or am I missing something? Can you install iOS 4.3.3 with iREB and still have aceess to the unsynced data files?

            Thanks!

          •  
            Pramod5 years, 3 months ago

            iReb/Fix Recovery are Recovery loop fixing tools. It is not a restore tool and therefore you’ll not loose anything that you have on your iPhone if it works fine.
            Installation is not possible, else you’ll loose everything in case your Reestored/Updated.

    Hey wolverine, man, i just wanted to let u know that Apple finally replace my iphone 4 for a new one, it seems like it was PHYSICAL PROBLEM after all, i think the usb or maybe the gevey+jailbreak+restore combination did something bad.
    So, now u know: error 9 its fatal. Specially after trying in more than 4 different computer.

    I was a little scare about sending my jailbreaked iphone for a warranty, but worked well this time.

    Hi there,

    Have iPhone 4 which was jailbroken some time back. Remained on IOS 4.0. Tried to upgrade to IOS 4.3.3 using custom IPSW. Got error 1602. Have tried to follow the procedure detailed above and get as far as step 5 OK, but when I launch iTunes (uninstalled all old Apple programs and re-installed latest version) it doesn’t recognise that the phone is plugged in, so cannot proceed any further with restore process…

    Any advice you can offer would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Ian

    •  
      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      To fix error 1602, you must change your PC. Use any other PC around you. Its not the issue with your iPhone, its the issue with your computer. Either re-install Windows or try rebooting your computer.

        Hey there,

        Thanks for taking the time to respond. Took the phone to the local Indian take-away and they restored it to standard 4.3.3 – Will follow your instructions to re-jailbreak.

        No fun being a newbie, but then I guess we all gotta start somewhere. Just as well there’s patient guys like yourself to keep us on the straight and narrow:)

      Both Recboot and EasyiRecovery will not work for iDevices running iOS 4.2.1 or above. To kick your iPhone out of iOS 4.3.3 recovery mode loop, use special version of TinyUmbrella, called TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) http://bit.ly/epkz3f

    Hi guys!

    Let me give a little intro to what my pb is. I have an iPhone 3GS 16GB officially unlocked and jailbroken. Last night I wanted to upgrade its firmware from 3.1.3 to 4.3.3.

    The first problem was when I was trying to update it by pressing SHIFT + RESTORE button in iTunes and selecting Stock 4.3.3 ipsw problem number 3194 showed up. I searched internet and came across TinyUmbrella and hit the “Run TSS Server” button and restarted iTunes and this problem solved.

    Then the second problem appeared. In the phase of “Preparing iPhone for restore” in iTunes, problem number 1604 poped up. I searched internet again and found its solution by using iREB-rc4. I ran iREB-rc4 then restart the procedure and finally it got updated to 4.3.3 with some problems.
    When the bar on iPhone came to its end indicating the completion of updating procedure, suddenly iPhone’s screen turned black. In my opinion it wanted to reboot but it couldn’t and it remained in DFU mode. Plus iTunes detected the device in “Recovery Mode”. Anyway, I played a trick then I jailbroke it with redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc15 and jailbreak files were downloaded and process was completed. The iPhone’s screen turned black again when the process of jailbreaking completed. I ran “redsnow” again and select “boot tethered” and finally the device came to its normal mode and jailbroken with iOS 4.3.3. After that I wanted to finish the process of jailbreaking by opening Cydia but after a few seconds a system message turned up on Cydia saying that “Your phone cache is almost full. Try to free some space” with “Dismiss” button (actually I can’t remember the exact phrase but the idea is the same.) Suddenly the phone wanted to restart but since then the screen of device has remained black and its status has been in DFU mode and iTunes detects it in “Recovery Mode” as well.
    I tried everything on internet as following to get the phone back to normal mode:
    1- I held Home + Power button together to let Apple icon comes up but after a few minutes of trying nothing happened.
    2- I tried to restore again with aforementioned procedure but problem numbers 1600, 1601 were thrown by iTunes. Needful to say that I prepared the phone in DFU mode with iREB-rc2, iREB-rc3 and iREB-rc4 but the result has been the same and 16XX problem number cannot be bypassed by iREB-rc4.
    3- I tried to both jailbreak and “boot tether it” with redsnow again but both tasks stopped at the point saying “Waiting for reboot” and nothing happened. It seems that my iPhone can’t restart at all.
    4- I tried Snowbreeze 2.7.3 to create a custom iOS but the result was the same as well.
    Tinyumbrella, iREB-rc4, iTunes, redsnow all of them recognize my iPhone but in DFU Mode and to me there is no way to get it restarted or back to normal mode.

    At last, I am a man badly in need of any help!!!!!!!!
    Thank u in advance…

      For error 3194, 21 & 1015: http://bit.ly/myffI3
      For error 1600, 1601, 1602, 1603 & 1604: http://bit.ly/mKemL0

      1. When you created a custom IPSW, you might have accidentally selected Root Partition Size over 850 MB (Step 5 here http://bit.ly/k5I7Qu)
      2. To put your iPhone into Pwned DFU mode to bypass all 16xx errors, use this video guide http://youtu.be/2nMovKzvuIw If you still get any 160x error then it means you are missing some step.
      3. Why are you booting into tethered jailbroken state when Redsn0w 0.9.6RC15 is well capable of jailbreaking all iDevices untethered
      4. Re-create iOS 4.3.3 IPSW with Sn0wbreeze 2.7.3 http://bit.ly/j6DplQ and choose Baseband Preservation Mode. Once created and restored, use Redsn0w 0.9.6RC15 http://bit.ly/lAi8at but skip step 1, 2, 3 & 4.
      5. I am assuming that you rely on an unlock. If not then simply follow the above Redsn0w guide by restoring stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW. There is no need to go for iOS 4.3.3 custom IPSW.
      6. Yep! When your firmware is corrupt, your iPhone will try to boot and then will kick itself back into DFU mode. So there is nothing wrong in that.
      7. DFU and Pwned DFU mode: Both have black screen, so do not confuse.

        Thanks a lot Wolverine for your time,

        1- I went through your procedures for error 160X (Fix iTunes Error 3194, 21, 1015 While Resorting iOS 4.3.3 Stock or Custom IPSW [Tips]).
        I tried your steps to restore Stock 4.3.3 ipsw. Firstly I want to make sure whether those ipsw files downloaded from apple domain are called Stock. If it is, I have downloaded “iPhone2,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw” with file size of 420 MB (440,519,759 bytes). Please confirm if I am right or give me the link of 4.3.3 Sock ipsw for iPhone 3GS. I did exactly in your tutorial but iTunes threw 1601 error.
        2- After that I tried to restore Stock 4.3.3 ipsw with iREB-rc4 (I know iREB is for custom-made ipsw but the first step didn’t work out . By the way, I would like to mention that the first time I could restore Stock ipsw was with the help of iREB-rc4. Maybe my Stock ipsw is corrupt. Please let me know if I am wrong.) . I did everything in the tutorial but iTunes threw the same error 1601.
        Please note that I am from Iran and whenever I connect my iPhone iTunes threw the problem saying “Could not contact the update server”. It is because of IP, therefore I have tried two VPNs in Germany and US and this problem disappeared. Plus in your tutorial in youtube about “how to put iPhone in pwnd DFU” there was no message saying “Contacting the iPhone software update server …
        ” but my iTunes displays it every time I connect my iPhone. Is there any important difference?
        3- I tried to fix recovery mode with fixrecovery43.exe but it also failed where it says as following:
        waiting 10 seconds for the device to pop up…
        unable to find device
        unable to upload iBSS payload
        exiting libpois0n
        4- I tried TinyUmbrella but it doesn’t recognize my device in device list but in log file DFU device connected can be seen. So I cannot get it out DFU mode with it.
        5- I made another custom ipsw but iTunes threw the same error 1601. When I was restoring my iPhone in iTunes with TinyUmbrella running, it got stucked in a step saying “Preparing iPhone for restore..” for 4 minutes and at the end showed 1601 error. When I was checking log file of TinyUmbrella, the last line was “DFU device DISconnected”.
        I believe that iPhone has gotten into DFU mode from which it cannot get out. And this error doesn’t have anything to do with my ipsw or anything else. Although I tried Home + Power button combination to let Apple icon come up, but nothing happened and it could not get out of DFU mode at all.
        Please, any suggestion? Should I remove the battery? Is my iPhone bricked and cannot be restored again?

        Thanks in advance

          1. Yes the IPSW file which you download from Apple servers directly is called stock IPSW and the one which you create using Sn0wbreeze or PwnageTool is called custom IPSW. iPhone2,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw is the stock IPSW for iPhone 3GS.
          2. Restore stock IPSW without iREB. If Apple servers are blocked in iRAN then use TinyUmbrella. Download TinyUmbrella, click on Save SHSH button and then click on Start TSS button. In this way iTunes will ask TinyUmbrella for your iOS 4.3.3 SHSH blobs instead of contacting Apple servers.
          3. You need to try again. When it says -> waiting 10 seconds for the device to pop up <- then press the power button (Only do it if your iDevice displays nothing for more than 7 seconds) Also note that fix recovery will not work until firmware is completely and successfully restored on your iPhone.
          4. To save iOS 4.3.3 SHSH blobs when you are stuck in recovery of DFU loop, use this guide http://bit.ly/dEocbM
          5. Your iPhone is in DFU mode. Put it in Pwned DFU mode using iREB.

          PS: Your iPhone is not bricked. You are just a newbie who is learning how to jailbreak his iPhone :P

            Thx Wolverine but my problem has been resolved but I don’t know HOW or WHY????

            1- You have told me many times to restore Stock 4.3.3 with SHIFT + Restore in iTunes but in iTunes always threw 1600 or 1601 error. This error should be thrown whenever CUSTOM FW is used but mine has always STOCK. That’s why I was stuck in this part and I couldn’t get out.
            2- I tried your solution on how to get SHSH blobs when iPhone is stuck in DFU mode with “UVCView.x86.exe” but in my PC with Win 7 64 bit installed the respective USB host didn’t show “Apple Recovery (iBoot) USB Driver” instead “Apple Recovery (DFU) USB Driver” was displayed. And whenever I chose it, it stopped responding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Fortunately I had save SHSH blobs before I ran this and I wanted to try it if it worked but it turned out with no result!!!!!!!!!!)
            3- With previously saved SHSH blobs, I could restore my DFU-stuck iPhone to Stock 3.1.3 and it worked completely right.
            4- Then I restored it again with Stock 4.3.3 but the same story happened! iTunes threw 1601 (I thought it might ve been a error in file while downloading but when I checked the downloaded Stock 4.3.3 in SHA1checksum, the numbers matched!!! :-S )
            5- Although the checksum showed that the download file was correct, I downloaded it again but with a little difference; I downloaded it completely without interruption (no pause/ no resume)
            6- Having downloaded the file, I tried it on my PC but the same story happened again!!!!! :(
            7- At last, I tried the same routine in my Notebook win XP 32bit with newly download file, and finally it was restored to Stock 4.3.3 and I unlocked it with iTunes and I jailbroked it with redsnow rc16. Now it’s completely working fine!!!!!!!!!!!
            To cut the long story short, I dunno what resolved my problem but these 2 things:
            1- Another PC with win XP 32 bit
            2- Newly downloaded Stock 4.3.3 ipsw with no pause/resume in between
            Correct me if I m missing something!
            Thanks anyway for your help!!!

    You think apple will void my warranty if i send my phone for cover warranty?

    •  
      8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

      Cuz i buyed this thing on August 2010, dont know if send this has warranty or as repair.

      •  
        Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

        Apple give 1 Year warranty for replacement or repair for a defect in an iPhone. So you can still claim warranty till August 2011.

    •  
      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      I don’t think they will have any clue whether you have jailbroken your iPhone or not. You tried to restore stock firmware but it failed. I think you have no other choice left then to return and claim replacement.

      •  
        8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

        Ok, im sending my phone to warranty this friday, i hope they repair/replace it.
        Just wanna to thank you for your infinite patience and help. I learned a LOT.

        BTW if you got a GEVEY sim card on you iphone DONT YOU NEVER EVER Restore your phone with the sim inserted. Spread de word!
        :)
        Thanks again Wolverine.

        •  
          Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

          I personally think no one can fix error 1611, error 14, error 9 or error 28 as they all fall under hardware failure. Yup, i wont be restoring with my Gevey SIM because i already bricked my one iPhone 4 :| I have got only one left and that is factory unlocked. I wont be using it for experimenting purpose anymore. It is in my personal use.

      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      Add this as an update to your question at JBQA. You should have written the question in points which explains all things you have tried uptill now.

  •  
    8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

    forget my last post (1:51 am)
    im in google searching for info and found this:
    “this device isn’t eligible for the requested build” means that the phone was jailbroken before the update, and as a result the update process could not determine the current build. This is exacly what happened to me.

    •  
      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      U hit the update button? Right? Never used Shift+Restore before u hit error 9?

      •  
        8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

        dont even know shift click let me restore custom ipsw file till i get the fisrt error and googled. :S

  •  
    8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

    correction, my first error was ERROR 9.
    then i used fix recovery.
    then redsn0w rc16

    •  
      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      Re-run fix recovery and tell me complete log you see on your command prompt. I think error 14 was somehow cause by fix recovery. It could lead to fix the corrupt memory but will not damage memory.

            Hmmm. Error 9 when you restore CFW and error 14 when you restore stock IPSW? Anyways, i am sure team of highly trained monkeys here http://bit.ly/l71xm9 will be able to help you out. Create a new thread with name “TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) bricked my iPhone 4 by corrupting its memory (Error 9 & Error 14)”. Explain everything! I will be keeping an eye on your thread. Btw, error 47 means fBsyErr: File is busy

      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      Results shows that it is a hardware error and the issue is with iPhone (NOT USB cable or port or OS or iTunes). You need to contact Apple (If possible) or take it to the local repair shop near your home. Do not restore it again and again before it may get bricked forever. Can you explain when the first time you got error 14? If it was custom IPSW then which firmware and which jailbreak tool you used?

      •  
        8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

        my fist error while restoring clean itunes restore was: “this device isn’t eligible for the requested build”.
        Then pressed ok, then itunes said iphone was detected in recovery mode.
        Then try to restore clean again, and get error 9.
        The first tool i used was: fix recovery 4.3
        Second one was redsn0w_mac_0.9.6rc16
        can u tellme: is it possible that a clean recovery from itunes 4.3.3 damages PHYSICALLY a 4.1 grenpois0n iphone? have u seen this before? with 3gs 3g or i4?
        there are issues of people (clean phones, no jb) with 4.2 upgrading to 4.3.3 same problem. Should i wait for jun 6 WWDC for a mayor upgrade? what do you recommend?

        •  
          Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

          Fix recovery can not damage the memory but are you sure you never unplugged or disconnected your iPhone from your PC while fix recovery was uploading some files to your iPhone? If that is the case, you may run fix recovery again and see if this works. I never got error 14 on my iP 3G, 3GS and 4. Another possibility is that you might have used fix recovery for iOS 4.2 instead of fix recovery for iOS 4.3. iOS 5 is due in June and yep, it can be another option to fix this issue.

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            im 100% sure the cable, energy, system was ok when i made the recovery.
            I used fix recovery 4.3.
            Remember hen i tell u why is greenposion in here if i made a 4.3.3 recovery? its cuz this phone doesnt know wich build its active.
            “this device isn’t eligible for the requested build” this was my first error, before this my phone was PERFECT.
            my phone right know its a buggy 4.1 iphone stucked in recovery mode.

      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      1. You tried to restore stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW
      2. You tried to restore Sn0wbreeze iOS 4.3.3 custom IPSW
      3. You tried to restore PwnageTool iOS 4.3.3 custom IPSW
      4. You tried to restore stock iOS 4.1 IPSW
      5. You tried to restore custom iOS 4.1 IPSW
      6. You changed USB port
      7. You tried another PC
      8. You tried different USB cable
      9. You tried iREB before restoring custom IPSW
      10. In all cases your restore progress stopped at 55% and you got error 14?

      •  
        8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

        Not always 55%, sometimes 20%, 30%… 5%, once i get almost 70%, but ALWAYS error 14.

        •  
          Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

          If NAND is corrupt, it should give error 14 on same %age on every restore. Have you tried to restore your iPhone using Mac? This will clear the confusion that this is not the OS issue.

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            i think the same about the NAND, ive tried in both systems: mac and pc, different % in each one. This sounds like a USB voltage related issue only with 4.3 and 4.3.3, have your read the apple forums? im not the only one with this problem. this guy HAD it too: http://hackwere.blogspot.com/

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            When the most reliable source http://bit.ly/dKTbgu says it is issue with USB port or cable then definitely it is truth. He is right, this is the genuine cable http://i.imgur.com/nBvMW.jpg and it only comes with iPhone. But again, i have been using this cable http://i.imgur.com/vB7uV.jpg for long time but never got error 14.

        •  
          Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

          iOS 4.3.x is perfectly safe and do not damage your iDevice in any way. The only point to which i will agree is that iOS 4.2.1 is the best firmware for iPhone 4 because its not laggy, gives you much battery life and is compatible with all Cydia and App Store apps. I will recommend you to follow instructions here instead http://bit.ly/mcJ0sv and do let me know how it goes.

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            Did as the guide commands, erased everything, then restore, now it is error 9 always. Did you know how can that procedure be done on a mac? were is that xml located? (iTunePrefs.xml)
            :(

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            I am not able to find iTunePrefs.xml on my PC either. To do this on Mac, first create a custom IPSW of iOS 4.3.3 using PwnageTool and then use this guide http://bit.ly/fNLHgV to put your iPhone into Pwned DFU mode in Mac. In this guide i used Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 and iOS 4.2.1. You can use Redsn0w 0.9.6RC16 instead and iOS 4.3.3 IPSW. Do check out this video http://youtu.be/a999afCw-_w

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            Used with normal mode, error 9, used with DFU error 14.

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            Error 9 means kernel panic -> Use Pwned DFU mode.
            Error 14 means unable to restore stock IPSW due to USB issues -> Change USB port and restore custom IPSW

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            im always able to avoid the error 9, but never the error 14. Used everything you said, just error 14 happens all the time. ill keep trying but honestly im so frustrated with this thing; this phone was perfect until that 4.3.3 i find so hard to believe it could be damaged somehow.

        ive downloaded again the stock 4.3.3 666mb file, on a windows 7 laptop, the go to itunes, shift+click restore, get the 4.3.3 666mb file, start to restore, at 55% iphone bar resets, black screen, apple logo, then recovery mode. Itunes says: error 14.
        :(

          In TheiPhoneWiki http://bit.ly/dKTbgu, error 14 is due to USB problem. Check the USB connection and try other direct ports or maybe the USB cable is an older one. According to point 2, you can only restore custom IPSW in some cases as restoring stock IPSW will give error 14.

            Try to grab it for sometime from your friend instead of buying a new one. Also go and restore on his PC as USB ports of your PC can be faulty.

          tried several times on a windows 7 laptop, new cable, my brother had a new one never used. installed itunes cuz didnt have it, then click on restore, after 20 minutes of download the 666MB file i clicked on restore, bar on phone goes til 55% then ERROR 14, sometimes ERROR 9.
          Is it possible that the nand memory its broken? or damaged? or corrupted somehow? or apple bricked every jailbreraked iphone after restoring it to 4.3.3? im fucked up, i live in colombia we got no apple genius bar here, warranty here its very complicated. This phone were great, perfect, no complains til i restored.

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            Yeah, possibly this is caused because somehow your iPhone was interrupted (Cable unplugged etc) while restoring custom firmware in past. This can damage nand memory but usually it do not damage. Use this guide http://bit.ly/dEocbM and see if you have SHSH blobs of any older firmware?

  •  
    8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

    Yeah, i know restoring stock 4.3.3 from itunes will never send me to recovery mode, but thats why im here, :(
    i was 4.1, plug in my iphone, press restore on itunes, then after a couple of minutes says:
    “this device isn’ t eligible for the requested build” then click on ok and my phone restarts. i wait a few seconds, and the screen got cable+arrow+itunes icon. Then i unplug it, plug it again, itunes detects the phone saying: “this phone is in recovery mode, press restore”, i press restore, then error 14. :(

    •  
      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      You got any Windows PC around you? Try downloading and restoring iOS 4.3.3 stock IPSW through it. I am sure the only issue with your case is the file size. However i am not sure why the firmware file you download is over 666 MB in size :S

    Hi guys, I have an iphone 4, locked to at&t and jailbreaked with greenpoison with the 4.1 iOS firmware and i was using my loved gevey simcard wich work perfect in my country, so the jailbreak was no needed anymoe (alo saved my SHSH 4.1 on tinyumbrella). The problem is, i restore my phone from itunes to the 4.3.3 version (did the back up first, just wanna get rid of the jailbreak and use 4.3.3 clean) itunes start doing the restore but few seconds later told me that my device doesnt support the version i was restoring (4.3.3) i click ok, and my phone starts this eternal recovery mode wich i cannot get out. I just want my iphone in an official 4.3.3, dont need jailbreak, dont need baseband preserv (i use gevey). Ive used the iReb and follow steps exactly, used a custom 4.3.3 firm, start procesing in itunes but at 35% the iphone bar stops, iphone resets, black screen and puts the cable and the itunes icon in screen wich means: im in reovery mode again, and itunes says: iphone cannot be restored and error 14 and sometimes 21. Its been almos 32 hours since im looking for a solution, im no sleep, im obsesed with this. Please, any help will be greatfully apreciated.
    PD. excuse my english.

    •  
      Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

      To use Gevey, you must have a hacktivated iDevice. Activating your iPhone with official carrier SIM to bypass the emergency screen will have no effect as using Gevey after official activation will result in Invalid SIM error. So what you need to do now? Just restore stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW (To avoid all restore errors) and then jailbreak http://bit.ly/lAi8at it using Redsn0w 0.9.6RC16 http://bit.ly/iHqdFZ

        8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

        Thanks for the reply. I did as you said, but in 55% iphone progress bart stops, and then, again, restarts, and go to recovery mode. Itunes says error 14. I restore in itunes with shift click to the 4.3.3 file (iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore). :(

        •  
          Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

          Error 14 means your USB port is not working properly. Restart ur PC and then plug iPhone USB cable into some other USB port.

            if i try to restore on my pc win 7 itunes says error 14, if try on mi mac 10.6 itunes says error 9. Should i try with other computer? thanks for the help.

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            If it gives error 9 then it signals the corrupt bundle file which is used to create custom IPSW. You are restoring custom IPSW? Why don’t you restore stock IPSW? You will never get a single error while restoring stock IPSW. Make sure the file you are restoring is iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw and is 666.19 MB in size.

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            im using the “iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw” that itunes downloads in the “iphone software updates folder” “/Users/xxx/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software” im not using any custom firmware. Should i try to download a new one? this one is (698.558.606 bytes)

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            Error 14 means faulty USB port. Try another PC or change the USB port.

            hi.
            Same error, 14, diferent computer, this time a pc i7 windows 7. Changed the cable. same thing. in the apple forum several people have this same issue. error 14 after 4.3.3, even with clean iphones 4 (no jailbreak). :(

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            Nops. I restored stock iOS 4.3.1 IPSW on my iPhone 4 (Windows 7) without any issue and unlocked it using Gevey. I am not sure if this will work for you but try to use iREB and then restore http://bit.ly/mKemL0

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            u mean, use the iREB with an iOS 4.3.1 ipsw or 4.3.3?

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            iREB with iOS 4.3.3 IPSW

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            Ive used iREB for DFU mode. Go to itunes, select 4.3.3 you ask me to download then start restoring, iphone progress bar resets at 44%, then again error (14) recovery mode. :(

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            i would say its a cable issue, ar a hardware issue, but everything was fine until i did that damm restore to 4.3.3. so its definetly an sofware issue.

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            You got SHSH blobs of iOS 4.2.1 or iOS 4.1?

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            i think so, this is what i got: http://www.estudioagite.com/shsh.jpg

            Great. Try this downgrade guide http://bit.ly/kBIP4E to downgrade your firmware to iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1.

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            hi.
            ive tried the guide with tinyumbrella, if restore to 4.1 error 9, if resto to 4.2 error 14, all the time. i cannot do this precedure from another computer becouse i dont know how to make tinyumbrella work form a diferent computer, if i connect my iphone in another computer with tiny says: “?0”, is there a way to make it point to the cydia servers? or copy the .shsh folder i got in my mac “/Users/xxx/.shsh” to windows?

            The other thing i dicovered is that if i put my iphone in dfu mode manually, tinyumbrella let me use the “fix recovery” button, then i used and discover greenpoison still there cuz it shows in my phone this:

            Unable to find gBdevList
            Unable to find fs_mount
            Unable to find fs_unmount
            Unable to find fs_load_file
            Greenpois0n initialized

            then get stuck, ive tried a couple times the same fix recovery and it continues after a lot of data loaded says:

            “unable to mount user filesystem error no successful firmware do upload after 6000 ms! Giving up…”

            if i wait 10 to 15 minutes it loads more code lines (many with ERROR), screen resets, and
            back to recovery mode: cable+arrow+itunes icon.

            my point is, this phone had never get restored to 4.3.3 its some kind of mutant 4.3.3/4.1.
            Anyway just wanna let you know what i discovered. Thanks

          •

            Error 9 means CFW file is corrupt and error 14 means USB port or cable problem. To correct error 9, re-create custom IPSW and to bypass error 14, change USB port. Also what is you current baseband version?

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            Ok, let me try this. but whats a CFW file? do i need to know? or making a new IPSW will fixit?
            btw my baseband is 04.10.01. Thanks again.

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            What? Why are you using custom IPSW when your baseband is already updated? :( You must be kidding me :D Man if your baseband is already updated, just use this guide http://bit.ly/lAi8at

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            ok, let me tell you this time the progress bar in the iphone went nearly 80%, i really thought we got it, but it reset again with a 9 error, change to pc, make exactly the same and error 14.
            What i did: downloaded PwnageTool_4.1.2 to make a custom 4.1 ipsw, the PwnageTool put the phone in DFU state, then i opened itunes, alt+click and selected the custom ipsw i just created, 80%, reset, recovery mode again. Now i tried exacly the same in the same computer, but the bar under the apple logo in the phone dont even start to fill it resets very quick, i could only achieve 80% at the first attempt. When do the same on pc its the same, as soon the logo and bar appears on the phone screen it resets to black screen+apple logo and then recovery mode: cable+arrow+itunes logo.
            What i havent done still: tinyumbrella+tss server —->restore in itunes with the custom 4.1 ipsw i just created, always had tried with a stock 4.1 firmware ipsw.
            :(

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            You should restore stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW. Also change your PC and USB cable. Hopefully you won’t get any error. Do not move iPhone when it is restoring.

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            i did the Redsn0w 0.9.6RC15 guide you tell me, but dont know why the guide says the phone must be restored in 4.3.3 (that´s my problem, my iphone went to infinite recovery mode after resting from 4.1 to 4.3.3) any way i did it and this happens:

            The phone screen load a lot of code scroll so fast, i barely can read, then stops in this screen lines: (i typed here manually)

            I waited about 5 minutes, the it scrolls more code, reboots and now show: cable+arrow+itunes icon.

            Nops, you must restore to stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW before using Redsn0w. The stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW you have got is 666 MB in size?

          8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

          Retore from itunes with the file iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw (698.558.606 bytes) donwloaded fromt he site you told me: http://bit.ly/mS19Kt. iPhone load bar progress stops in 55%, resets, go to cable+arros+itunes icon, itunes says error 14

          why when “i fix recovery” from tinyumbrella the phone shows greenpois0n stuff?

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            Because it uses the GreenPois0n exploit :)

          •  
            8ardock5 years, 4 months ago

            yeah i know it uses the exploit, but it shouldnt be there, i restored to a stock 4.3.3, it should be erased, and the phone in factory settings.

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 4 months ago

            If you restored to stock iOS 4.3.3, then there is no need to use TinyUmbrella or TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery). Restoring stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW on your iPhone 4 will never send it to recovery loop.
