    OK here is the deal.

    I had my phone updated to 4.1 via custom firmware so i got jailbroken and unlocked.

    but had a problem with youtube.

    so i was told to re-create a new custom firmware without activation checked.

    i did so but now when i try to restore my iphone 3G it keeps saying preparing for restore on itunes then i get a 1601 error.

    So apparently i am unable to use the new custom firmware i created.

    how do i fix this

    Try it not in DFU mode. Like just shift-clicking restore while the iPhone is in regular mode.

    Create a new custom firmware again, it could be the one you created is corrupted.

    Correct, if you don't hactivate using the custom firmware, everything works flawlessly with your official sim to activate because of cert signing.

    I haven't been able to get Youtube to work yet, but I got around the error message while restoring to sn0wbreeze by using iREB. I'm using mxtube instead of youtube for now. Works just as well if not better.
