    Hi, I received an iPhone from a friend and he wanted me to try to fix it for him. I'm on windows vista 64bit, I believe the iPhone is on 3.1.3. I've tried everything so far to boot the phone back to normal mode. Connected it to iTunes, restored, it gives me the 1611 error. I tried iREB to solve it, but no success. I'm pretty sure I've tried everything, but taken it to Apple. Hellllpppp please!!

    Try a new clean FW file, new USB Port, or a new cable. If that doesn't work try a different pc.

    Tried everything, went to apple store, they couldnt do anything. I'm starting to think I'm SOL.

    After all these months I'm still trying to figure out if this is fixable or not. I've tried redsn0w, downgrading, iReb, went to Apple, tried on different computers, I guess I have a very nice paperweight...
