How to fix some mysterious problems.

Just trying to do a apple iTunes restore ( No Custom firmware or anything ) I get a Error "the iPhone " iPhone " could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1646) then it brought my phone back up with everything on it. But its in safe mode. Still have cydia and all my apps. Like if nothing happened. Can i try again or what is my options?

Are you sure that was the error, never seen it before

Yes it was 1646. Could it of been because i think i was in PWND DFU. And the custom firmware also gave me that error. So i just did a basic restore while still in PWND DFU mode. I think its because i removed Lang. Files using syscleanpro. I never have any problems doing this untill i tried 1 thing through Cydia ><

It restored correctly after restarting it out of SafeMode. So now i will try running the custom firmware again and loading ireb through Sn0wbreeze. Sucks i gotta go through all this just for a bigger ROOT partition ><

New Error : 1646/1645 -- happens when you try and run a Custom IPSW and ur phone isnt actually in PwnD DFU mode. Also will get the error if your in PWND DFU mode and you need to do a basic iTunes restore. So from now on make sure your not in PWND DFU to do a Basic Restore.

Dunno why i got it after Sn0wBreeze ran ireb. But i will figure it out.
