Iphone 3Gs is just lifeless no sound nothing....Itunes recognizes it and says its in recovery mode and it needs to be updated and restored so I press restore and it starts downloading or something for...

Error 21 is most commonly encountered if you backed up the phone with jailbroken software and then try to restore the jailbroken software. If that's what you're trying to do, I would advise against it. Try to restore from a non-jailbroken image instead.
If that's not what you're doing, there's some other reason that your restoring image has been corrupted, and I'd recommend restoring from another computer, but that would sadly mean starting over from scratch with all your saved data.

you dont need the internet to sync, and before you restore your phone you will be given the option to back up, you dont need an internet connection to create a back up either but you do need the internet to restore the iphone as it connects to the apple gs server. also your best restoring from the comp you use to sync. you dont have to restore your iphone as new then as you will have previous back ups on there.

hope this helps and if you need any further assistance just give me a shout!

My iphone is bloked after jailbrack...the jailbrack was not a succese. is close to give it life again?the iphone not charge. pleaze help me i dont jailbrack it him now

Hi there,

while i wont give you advice on how to jailbreak your iphone (google is your friend here),

I will help you with how to fix your iphone.

Have you connected the iphone to your computer via a USB on the computer. Not through a USB hub or keyboard, but directly to your computer?

If this works, and it shows up in itunes, try selecting restore your ipod on the ipod page in itunes.

Otherwise, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that.

Iphone restoration error (1601)

I found a solution!
It worked for me and many others (who posted their gratitude on the original post).

Below are the instructions you have to follow. If you have disconnected your phone or shut your iTunes, don't worry. I did it. I even reinstalled iTunes a few times and shut down the computer as well.
Here it goes:

"The way to get over the 16xx errors while restoring on any firmware is this:
Once you get the error DONT DISCONNECT IPHONE OR CLOSE ITUNES. Which leaves us with only one option, rESTART Iphone. STEP BY STEP GUIDE FOR VERSION 2.0.1:

1). You get the error. (Ofcourse)
3). If the phone is still on, reboot/restart the phone. If its off then kick it out of DFU mode which is explained in the NEXT step.
4). Press and hold the power and home button for some time to kick the phone out of DFU mode.
5). Itunes will detect it again.
6). Now try to simple-restore it, that is click on the restore button on itunes while pressing the shift button of your keyboard. YOU WILL GET THE 16XX ERROR AGAIN IN 5 MINS !!!! but dont worry, everything is under control.
7). now your iPhone will have the picture of the iPhone cable on its screen. good.
8). NOW put the iPhone it in DFU mode. How? Firstly turn the phone off (it might try to start up on its own again but turn it off again). Once its off, Press and hold the power and home button for 10 seconds, then release the power button but keep the home button pressed for another 10-20 seconds till itunes recognizes your phone.
9). NOW restore the phone by selecting the pawned custom firmware that you created and you will NOT get the 16xx error.


I got this solution from here:

Hope it works for all of you.
