    • I just tried this on my 3GS, everything went fine until I got the error message ‘1604’ from itunes. What does this mean?! What have I done wrong?! I’ve rebooted the iphone through TinyUmbrella, but it’s not jailbroken :(

    • erreur 1604. need help

    • I also get stuck like Cath and it never goes into the progress bar on the phone. Then after the iTunes error message, I restart the phone out of recovery mode and it’s back to how I left it.

    • Hi, I get error 1600 after trying the restore. Assuming this is because I have the updated baseband? ANyone know?

    • Same, 1604 error. Device can not connect back to itunes. I left this on anouther post but is hasn’t been published. This was the same issue for 4.0.2

    • You’re all still fine. When you get the error click ok and use the tiny umbrella software to kick your iphone out of recovery mode. Voilà ! All set. If you’ve ever had to downgrade your iPhone it’s the same process.

    • When you have an error msg after all installation, such as 16xx or 17xx. You can use RecBoot to get out of Recovery Mode. Just google. RecBoot

      Recboot is available for both mac and pc.

      Cheers

    • My iPhone 3Gs running iOS 4.1 (for Mac) has been jailbroken using limera1. After a crash i was unable to restart. Tried to restore with iTune with no joy. Error 1600 or Apple logo forever. Tried to change USB port, cable etc. Restarted and nothing. Created a new user, no solution. Another computer, the same.

      The solution that worked for me was to reboot to Windows7 in Boot Camp, downloaded iTune and restored. It worked smoothly. Back to Mac enviroment, restored again and reload my backup.
      Perfect!

    • I got my phone stuck on recovery mode after trying to jailbreak with limera1n. My power button doesnt work, so i couldnt finish the jailbreak. I tried irecovery and tinyumbrella to get it unstuck, but it doesnt work. i got this error log from itunes when trying to restore. any ideas? please help.
