    use "RecBoot" tell it to boot you out of Restore mode... what itunes you using and what firmware are you on and where do you want to go (firmware wise)?

    well, tried 3 times with iREC and first 2 times i got errors 1604 and 1603 then third time i got error 6 again... i can see from previous log that i posted that it is all caused by my pc not being able to edit:
    nvram: Error (-1) setting variable - 'boot-args'
    error setting 'boot-args' to '': 255
    any help?

    hmm...I don't really know much about all that stuff, sorry but you might have to ask someone else :/ my only opinion is to keep on trying iREB and stuff...
