How to fix some mysterious problems.

I think I have bricked my 3G that I just sold on eBay. I cant get it to restore any firmware files now. I was trying to update it to the iPad baseband so that I could unlock it for the guy but now I'm just screwed. It will go into an infinite reboot loop if I try to plug it into my Windows 7 PC and I keep getting error 1600 when trying to use my Mac. I need some help guys!

Have you tried putting it into recovery mode? Hold home and power continuously and it should eventually give you the connect to itunes graphic. Hopefully ;)

Also iReb might help. Go to and give it a try, can't make it any worse I guess :-/

Also after you have restored it and it comes up connect to itunes screen try using TinyUmbrella and use the option to kick it out of recovery mode.

I got it into recovery mode but that still didn't get me anywhere. I also tried iReb with the same results. Right now it's stuck over halfway through the restore and not doing anything.

Well that's some progress, right? I've done restores where it seemed to be stuck, but it eventually completed. Good luck!

Do you know what baseband you have now, try TinyUmbrella and see if it picks your 3G up and then check it's baseband version under the general tab, it maybe that you have the ipad baseband, if so try using PwnageTool v4.1.3 unlock edition to create the custom firmware (say no to ipad baseband) and see if you can get Pwnage to get you into DFU and then restore.

Well I installed the new version of tinyumbrella and when it opened the bar on the phone moved and it finished installing. Now it's working. Idk what happened to fix it. I spent way too much time on that stupid thing lol.

Well there's a stroke of luck, did you hit any buttons inTinyUmbrella?

(23 Feb '11, 13:47) venusanann venusanann's gravatar image

Nope. Just opened it. Weird thing is that I set it to restore before I went to bed last night and when I woke up it was still not done. It was stopped in the same place as it was earlier before I opened tinyumbrella.
