[Solved] iPhone 3G Installation error 1600 Fix
« on: January 24, 2013, 05:11:13 PM »
So, I finally was able to install whited00r 6 on my iPhone 3g.

I'm posting this to help the people that had the same problem as I did (iTunes error 1600) when trying to restore to wd 6 fw.

I tried using iReb, using redsn0w, re-installing iTunes and nothing worked.

So, this is what works: Downgrade your iOS to 3.1.2, then use blackra1n to jailbreak it.

After you do that, use iReb to put it in pwned DFU mode, and simply use iTunes to SHIFT+Restore to whited00r.

Hope this helps you people.  :)

Hi, I was just wondering, do I have to jailbreak with blackra1n, because that isn't working for me, unfortunately.  :-\
