Unhappy [HELP] - Stuck in DFU mode Black screen

Another iPhone ... another problem....

NO history on the phone. Dont know what firmware or baseband it has.


The phone is stuck on a black screen and would not respond. When I connect the phone its not recognised.
Only gets detected by iTunes when I put it MYSELF in DFU mode (10sec Power&Home - 10sec Home)

I have tried restoring it to firmware: 1.1.1 , 1.1.4 and 2.0 - every time I get the SAME error 1601. I have not seen an Apple logo at all - only black screen.

Used iTunes 7.5, 7.6 and 7.7

iLiberty+, Ziphone, iDemocracy, iBricker nothing would recognise the phone.


Suggestions and help...

BR

Jazz

Very small progress...

The phone is now being detected by ZiPhone & iLberty - but ONLY in DFU mode. Still they CANNOT kick out of dfu mode!!!
iDemocracy & iBricker DO NOT detect the phone

Constantly trying to restore to 1.1.4 using iTunes 7.6 ... almost tried 20 times & still trying.

Completely remove iTunes and Apple Mobile Device support and then reinstall iTunes 7.5 or later

I uninstlled iTunes 7.6 - then deleted the file "iTunes Library.itl" - also deleted Apple Mobile Device support folder -
finally installed iTunes 7.5


iTunes 7.5 is not good
When I put the phone in DFU mode I hear the sound on windows but iTunes 7.5 does not show the phone in DFU mode. The restore screen in iTunes also does NOT show.


On ZiPhone ... when I try to put it to RECOVERY MODE the output log shows the following error: USBMuxListenerCreate: No error


Should I go back to iTunes 7.6 or do I need to delete any files? or make any other changes?

SAme problem encountered with my iphone.

Hi jajukhan

have u been able to get out of this damed DFU mode?

i'm having the same problem here. I got ver 2.0.2 winpwned on my iphone but when i tried to upgrade to ver 2.1 it got stuck in the 'recovery mode' [usb cable n itunes + cd picture]. However, my iphone is no more recognisable! i tried itunes, ziphone but no success...

Pressing sleep/home button, i can enter the DFU mode [black screen] but now ziphone sees my iphone but cant do any magic either since it tells me to restore via itunes. but the latter refuses to detect it!

can someone help :s
