If your getting 1600 error try creating a new custom firmware with pwnage and\or change your usb cable. Worked for me.

Go to iPwner it and it doesnt detect my iPhone in restore mode. Tryed skipping that step, doing it on QuickPwn to see what would happen and then build an IPSW, doesnt work, the firware is not compatible or there is an error. Try using the newest PwnageTool [not used in this tutorial] and whenver i select the right ipsw, even the one it gave me to download and use, says its the wrong bundle or isnt a recognized ISPW.

I've been getting these errors for a few days now and I think i might have resolved my issue by NOT going into DFU mode while restoring with a CUSTOM firmware on windows (holding Shift + clicking Restore) or on Mac (holding Option + clicking Restore). I've found that it's easier to download a IPSW made with a MAC and use that while restoring with a custom with iTunes 8. Also, for jailbreaking your iphone the easiest thing to do is in Winpwn 2.5 v2 you click the "Custom" button on the top right corner of the screen so that it says "Quickpwn", you then choose your phone (2.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.2) and follow the instructions on the screen. Jailbreak should be done BEFORE you instill your custom firmware. ....Alright guys, I was actually doing the custom restore while writing this and now I have mine ready and going with a T-Mobile SIM card in it. The unlock is working and it's been jailbroken, so i hope everything works out for you guys. Just remember when doing CUSTOM restore, don't have your iphone in DFU mode.

I had the same problem this morning. Followed the steps described on apple website and my iphone works perfectly.

I tried to use the pwnage tool at step 20 I get a message saying "The iphone could not be restored. An unknown error occured. (2001)" Other times it was error 2005. Is there a way to get pass this error? If not, is there a way to somehow get the phone back to a default state so I can start over? Please help.

Hello, loca. Thanks!! That's my fool. It's really take just seconds but i didn't note that. The recovery mode image was flash up so fast. Now my iPhone already unlocked, thanks very much about all info and your kindness. I'm learning to use installer for App. ^_^ bye

milk: go to tutorials and click select 'iPhone Basics'... then look for 'how to put an iPhone into Recovery Mode'... this will solve your problem...
