How to fix some mysterious problems.

Lately my Iphone 3gs, new BR home button have been acting weird and unresponsive.So I looked around and found that doing a restore help solve this issue. Little I knew. Anyway, I made a restore but the home button won't work. so I made dfu custom ipsw(ios 6.1.6) and jailbreak and everything and it worked. I left my iphone and when I got back there was a white screen showing. I searched around and found that I made the mistake of clicking I have old boot room. I again searched for solution and found that letting the battery drain would solve the issue.

I did and now I tried to do a restore through itunes and first I got error 1600, then I got 1618. Anyway to fix this issue?

Ps: Just right about when itunes start restoring, I get a white screen and then the screen turn off and then error 1618 pop up. I can't fix the home button since there are no apple store in this country.

What tool did you use to jailbreak ? iTunes Error 16xx is USB error. Use another USB cable/port or if available computer.

Did you try redsn0w custom IPSW restore in DFU?

@A08 : I used Redsn0w. I'll try that and get back with results.

@JiGSaW113 : Yes, I did and I even tried the regular itune restore but it's still the same problem. I will try and do a custom restore to ios 5.1.1

A question : Could it be a hardware problem? I don't know what to do. This white screen doesn't want to go away. :(

If you can't restore even in Recovery mode (Power+Home until screen turns off, then connecting the cable WHILE home button is held), then it could be hardware, but first try a different computer/cable to make sure.

I changed the cables. and iTunes started restoring process, took a while, then error 1601 popped up. Now, It seems my device isn't recognized on Win and also tried it at another computer. I'm not sure what's going on...
