Question about Apple iPhone 3G Black Smartphone
My Iphone went frozen and I've tried to restore it from 3 diffrent computers. I've unistalled Itunes and the Aplle components and re-installed them. Nothing works. I always get the error 1604 message. Three I've got the Kernel Panic script in my Iphone screen.
What can I do to fix the problem?
When this happened to me yesterday I tried all of the suggestions and more - many similar suggestions to do with itunes reinstalls, usb ports, the sim card and scripting (including on the Apple forums and support pages). None of it worked.
My issue was that the 'preparing to restore' phase of restoration became looped and eventually it crashed citing error 1604. However, there was a solution at: http://daggle.com/iphone-upgrade-fail-701 which did work for me.
1. Start the restore process (whatever way you can).
2. When it seems to be stuck in the loop (and possibly your iPhone just shows a blank screen) use CTRL+ALT+DEL and end task to kill the iTunes application.
3. Restart the restore process.

Confirm that your firmware is compatable with your iphone.
if you have a 2G the firmware should start with 1.1 if you have a 3G the firmware should start with 1.2
apparently unlocked or jailbroken phones with the wrong firmware will brick in this manner.
not to worry, your not the only one.
do a web search for error 1604 and you will see solutions such as this below.
Solution: This has multiple causes. Generally, you are not in DFU mode. See DFU guide. Winpwn solution after ruling out the above: Delete the device file (x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw) in your iTunes folder. (Search for the file). This can also be caused by using the incorrect firmware image (a 3g on a 2g for example).
Solution: This one sucks. There’s no single answer for it. Here are some possible suggestions:
