    Help!

    I was restoring my iPhone 3GS when iTunes crashed during the restore process. Needless to say my phone now won't boot (it goes straight to the restore logo). I've put it in DFU mode and tried to restore, but gotten the error 1611. What happens is that the progress bar for the restore appears on the phone while iTunes prepares the phone to be restored, but the bar never fills and I get the error. I've put the phone in DFU mode to no avail.

    I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

    Go to the store you bought it from, explain the problem, and get a new one.

    I hope that's not my only option

    Edit: For some reason an older computer running Tiger is restoring it just fine as I type this
