    Please help before I end my own life. (Not a true statement)

    I bought my iPhone off of eBay after I successfully unlocked another one on 1.1.1 last year. It came in activation mode on 1.1.4. After not being able to unlock it with iLiberty I tried to downgrade it to 1.1.1, no dice. I then upgraded it to 2.0.2. I then used WinPwn to create a custom firmware. It got to the point where it recognized my phone in DFU mode and then did nothing else. I assumed this was the point where I was supposed to restore through iTunes. iTunes is not restoring any firmware except for the Apple one. As in, if I try to shift restore any firmware it won't take it. When i am in regular restore mode I get error 6. When I am in DFU I get 1601. I've tried moving the USB to different ports, bypassing the dock, and restarting my computer. I'm looking for either an alternative or a solution. Please help.

    Thanks.

    just hit shift+restore to restore it to a stock firmware and then use ziphone to unlock it and activate it. or upgrade to 2.0 and unlock from there

    The problem is it's not accepting anything but 2.0.2 through the regular restore, not shift restore
