What version is the custom FW?

Did you pwn your device before the restore? Without that you cannot install custom firmware. Use redsn0w to pwn.

Also make sure you don't download the custom firmware from anywhere. Always create it yourself with sn0wbreeze (Windows) or with PwnageTool (Mac).

Try using Ireb to avoid iTunes errors whilst trying to restore to a custom fw.
