need help my new 3gs won't restore and is stuck in dfu keeps gettin 3004 error. any ideas?
Which iTunes do you have? If it's 8.2 do you have the final version?
just deleted the itunes I had and downloadin and installin newest one from itunes gonna try that. lol its killin me stuck in dfu with a brand new phone
If that doesn't work shut the phone off and put it into DFU yourself - have itunes open turn the phone off then hold the home button while you connect to the computer. Then iTunes will recognize a phone in restore mode and hopefully you won't fail.
Here are some DFU instructions http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808
And a possible reason you got that error http://www.quickpwn.com/forums/iphone-os-3-0/3309-eroor-3004-a.html
I think it was the older itunes problem. good call. can't wait for a jailbreak. miss my five icon dock
It doesn't sound like it will be too much longer for the 3.0 jailbreak, but I am sure it will take a little longer for the 3GS
I'm having same issue and yes Im familiar with DFU Mode. My iPhone 3G S gets 3004 error when I try to restore it in DFU mode or regular Restore mode and now It won't go back to normal phone. Its stuck in Restore mode. Any ideas? (Besides take it back to apple)
Please provide a little more information. At what point exactly in the restore process do you get the error? PC or Mac? iTunes version?
Try deleting the ipsw file (maybe it's a corrupt file?) and then restoring again. iTunes will automatically redownload it after you delete it and then restore to factory settings.
Here's where the file is located.
Documents and Settings\<User>\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates
I had the exact same problem.
The solution for me was :-
1. Download iTunes 8.2 from Apple.com
2. Install the downloaded iTunes - this will install over the 8.2B (beta).
3. do the normal restore with the 3.1 FW
FIXED IT FOR ME!
GJ bro, you might never be able to jailbreak now.
