Try this:

  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.


If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures on my tip (link below):

I dropped my iphone 2g 16GB in a toilet bowl last month. I managed to dry it out but currently having problems in restoring it. ITunes just keep giving me errors like 1611, 1604, 23 and so on. I tried to...


Hey Chee, Usually an iphone with liquid damage may cause damage to internals that may go unnoticed if it is able to work. Depending on the error message you get when restoring with itunes may mean different things.

  • 1604 is just to check your usb cable to make sure its directly (not through a hub) connected to a usb 2.0
  • 1611 and 23 are usually hardware issues that cannot be solved with a restore

My iphone wont restore error 1611 apears when trying to restore it


Try restoring from DFU mode. To enter DFU, shut down the phone and connect it to the computer. Then hold the power button for 3 seconds. Without releasing the power button, hold down the home button for 10 seconds. Then release the power button but keep holding home until iTunes recognizes the device in recovery mode. If you did it right, the screen should be black. Then just click restore. This should help, but if it also doesn't work you may have a hardware issue. In that case, you should take it in to Apple for repairs. Good luck!

Im getting an unknown error (1611) when i try to restore my iphone. i have latest itunes & windows 7


Hi there,

This error may indicate a hardware issue with your device. If the MAC address or the IMEI is the default value (00 499901 064000 0), this can also confirm a hardware issue, to find these go to settings, general & about.

If you can get an appointment in an Apple store they can try a "known good" network connection & connector and try to restore the phone for you but if not it looks like it may be a hardware issue within the phone. If your still withing your warrenty give Apple a ring they'll sort it for you.

IPhone 3G Error 0xE8000001


Where did you purchase your phone? however, you first need to update itunes to 8.0.2, that might solve your problem. Unless you have an unlocked phone then restoring your phone is useless because when you restore an iphone with itunes in the US without an att sim card it will actually lock the phone, but I do not think that is your issue. the two things you are seeing the connect to itunes and the emergency call system means that your phone is not properly activated. which is done by connecting it to itunes.

Iphone will not restore


Try restoring in DFU mode, which is different than recovery mode. I happened to stumble across it while trying to restore an iPhone 3G that a user unplugged in the middle of the 3.1 update. It kept showing an error of 1611 or 13 and wouldn't restore in recovery mode. I found this DFU mode option and the restore worked fine. The DFU mode keeps the iPhone OS from loading, so you don't run into as many compatibility problems. Go into DFU mode, then try restoring the phone and see if that works.

To enter DFU mode:
1. Connect your iPhone to your computer
2 . Turn iPhone off. You may have to hold the power and home buttons down together to force the phone off
3. Once the phone is off, hold the power and home buttons together for 10 seconds exactly
4. After 10 seconds, release the power button but keep holding home until the computer recognizes that a USB device was plugged in
5. iTunes should detect your iPhone correctly, and also allow you to restore to the factory default settings
