iphone 3gs running on ios 6.1.6 wont restore after through itunes it always finishes restoring but in the end it says couldnt restore,unknown error occurred(-1). and now the phone is stuck in recovery mode it wont even boot up again keeps booting into recovery mode pls help what do i do?


you need redsn0w 15b3 and a 6.0 ipsw. Use redsn0ws recovery fix after selecting the 6.0 ipsw in redsn0w. After that, if it boots, go into settings>general>about and verify if modem firmware has anything listed or if it is blank

Seeing that downgradebaseband is on the question tag, must have a blown baseband due to an ipad baseband upgrade attempt on a later 3gs model.
