    Solution!

    I had the same problem with iPhone 3G and found a fix!

    Solution to the "iTunes could not restore the iPhone because a session could not be started with the iPhone" problem:

    1. Use sn0wbreeze-V2.0.1
    2. DO NOT select "Activate phone" when creating iOS 4.1 image - you will need to use a legal SIM card to activate
    3. Use iREB-4.0.x-4.1 to put phone into DFU
    4. Restore image with iTunes
    5. Activate phone with legal SIM card
    6. Use ultrasn0w 1.1-1 to unlock (if necessary)
    7. Restore from backup

    Good luck!
