Basically, my iPod touch 4 32GB's top power/lock/sleep button has stopped working.
So I though I would jailbreak it again, I am quite 'experienced' with jailbreaking, and have done it many times before using many different tools etc. but never on a device that can't physically get into DFU mode... So I thought I'd try this DFU IPSW that you can make in RedSn0w. I made it and successfully booted into DFU mode.
I then tried to jailbreak in RedSn0w, but it failed whilst uploading the 2nd stage.
So I went to Sn0wbreeze, this made the custom IPSW, I tried shift-restoring to the IPSW it put's on your desktop but it gets to the end and gives me error 1600, I read that iH8Sn0w updated iREB to make it work with error 1600, but maybe not with DFU IPSWs? As I tried using his standalone iREB6 from iH8Sn0w.com, and got the same error when attempting to restore in iTunes.
Is it not working because of this DFU IPSW? If so, how can I fix it? Is it possible to get into DFU without using the IPSW?
Try again. iTunes errors for DFU IPSW is normal. Just ignore them. The best option would be to get the button fixed as being a tethered jailbreak, it is going to be hard for you with a broken power button.
