    I made a topic yesterday, but has fallen.

    My touch is 1.1.5 and itunes is now 7.7.1.11 (?). a day or two ago, itunes was 7.6.x and i could successfully enter DFU after winpwn (but got an error after shift+restore). i figured itunes needed to be 7.7 so i updated. now i am unable to enter DFU.

    I tried getting itunes 7.6 back, but won't load- something about library created with a later version. i tried uninstalling bonjour, itunes, and mobile device and reinstalling several times.

    i know how to enter DFU. now it "enters" DFU, but repeats 3 times or so and then automatically goes to recovery, forcing me to restore. i've done this at least 20 times.

    first update to original file (you can be in recovery mode for this), and then to costum, worked for me with the same problem.

    so your problem is you cant go in DFU mode, and then you cant restore to a 2.0.1 costumize, right ?
    so the sulution for me was to go into recovery mode, update to original 2.0.1, and then go DFU(it just worked for me in 2.0.1), and update to a costumize 2.0.1 firmware.

    and you can always use quickpwn while in 2.0.1 .

    i have 1.1.5 though, not 2.0.1. i download a 2.0.1 firmware online somewhere.

    if i try going to that firmware from recovery mode, it gives me error (5).

    i did and can make the .ipsw and "successfully pwn itunes." then i can apply it in DFU.
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    let me retry all of the building and pwning with itunes closed....i figured i did, but just in case.....

    --nope, just tried again with itunes closed, and still goes to recovery after a short DFU.

    if you keep from that recovery mode (the one who come after DFU) ,and try to upgrade to a clean 2.0.1 it gives you error 5 ?
