Can't Restore iphone

Hi I also have 1.1.4. firmware and I have jailbroken and activated my iphonewith ziphone.  After doing this I connected my iphone to my MacBook Prowith leopard and my computer doesn't recognize it.  So by this time I don't really care if all my stuff is erased on my iphone.  So I put it in recovery mode and try to restore it on my computer but a message pops up and it says there is an error 1604.  Will someone please help me?  All I want to do is to restore my iphone back to normal.

I don't know if you are still having this problem but I have a suggestion, instead of using Ziphone to jailbreak your iPhone use Quickpwn. This is a much safer and you'll have a better chance of getting your iPhone jailbroken. It may be the firmware that you  are trying to install.

Setting button misplaced

Do a full restore to the latest firmware (1.1.4 at this time), you will gain many features and bug fixes, and your settings option will return.

I'm going to assume the reason you are using old firmware is because your phone is jailbroken. You can still jailbreak your phone using the ziphone utility available from

If you don't have options there, you can install "anysim" from the "installer" app that will appear on any jailbroken iphone

I have installed ziphone.

The version of ZiPhone that you used has been replaced with a new version (several new versions in the last few days).

Restore your phone to 1.1.3, download the latest ZiPhone (v2.3) from and rerun the program with the -j option. DO NOT run with -a. After you have jailbroken your phone, reconnect to itunes and have itunes do the activation. At this point, everything will be working. If not, let me know and I'll help you out.

I hv lose my 5gb space its showing in itunes as OTHER USED space

Restore your iPhones to 1.1.3.
This will reset the data and datapaths in the phone.

If you are avoiding a restore because you are using a jailbroken phone, the ziphone application ( will jailbreak any phone, including 1.1.3

The best thing you can do when your phone goes on the fritz, is restore to the latest firmware.
