    I've run into a little problem...

    I'm trying to restore my jailbroken/unlocked (yellowsn0w) 16GB iPhone 3G running 2.2 FW. I'm using iTunes ver. 8.0.2.20 and the 2.2 Apple FW from quickpwn.com. This is all being done on a Windows Vista x86 system which has worked in the past.

    When I shift + restore in iTunes with the iPhone in normal mode and in recovery mode, I get iTunes error 5. When I put the iPhone in DFU mode, I get error 1.

    Besides recovery and DFU mode, I've also restarted the computer and got the same errors. I also ran iTunes as an administrator but got the same results.

    Thus, I can't restore my iPhone.

    Hook a brother up, please!

    I thought it was only a problem on Mac's but try going through a USB hub.

    Also, might want to try downloading the firmware again and make sure you are downloading the right one.

    Tried both of those.

    I also tried a different computer and received iTunes error 1013.

    I also tried to restore with 2.1 firmware but no luck...

    I also tried using iTunes 8.11 and got the same issue.....

    Device:
    iPhone 3GS (Black)
    Error 1013 means that the firmware is loaded correctly. Use Quickpwn to boot it out of Recovery mode.
