      Do not worry if you have successfully created iOS 4.3.2 custom IPSW for your iPhone. Just use this guide to put your iPhone into Pwned DFU mode. This will fix all 16xx errors.

      Whats your iPhone model and baseband? Also have you tried to restore iOS 4.3.2 custom IPSW again?

    Doggystyle10 years, 5 months ago

    hi, when my 3gs restored to 4.3.2 custom ipsw, i always locked in recovery mode (error 29). i knew from several sites that this error related to battery. at first i don’t know how to make it run again without change the battery. I must do this because i couldn’t managed to buy original battery.
    After that i try to restore to official 4.0 fw. still error 29, but after used irecovery, i successfully to kicked out from recovery mode. Thought this method can be used in 4.3.2 or 4.0 custom ipsw (i need to hacktivated), i cooked 4.3.2 and 4.0 custom ipsw sn0wbreeze. but neither of them successful to run my 3gs.
    my 4.0 custom ipsw, always give 1646 error, and 4.3.2 custom ipsw give error 29 but can’t kick out recovery mode. so neither of custom ipsw worked.

    Any solution for this except changing battery? thx in advanced.
