Error 1601 itunes during install cydia jailbreak went wrong
I try to jailbreak a 3GS Iphone and the worst case scenario happened.
While I try the application crashed…
The phone did not start up anymore and i when i used iTunes
for recovery I go error 1601
My bad dream came through had an error by iPhone Jailbreaking
But there is a trick to by pass the 160* errors in itunes
This will work with any 16xx error, such as error 1601, 1602, 1603 and 1604.
The device wasn’t properly put in DFU mode when attempting to have iTunes restore the custom ipsw with the device.
Windows users use iH8Sn0w’s iReb RC4. It is very simple to use
However you can use Redsn0w as well.
Download Redsn0w for Mac
Download Redsn0w for Win
Instead of clicking install Cydia, press Just boot into tethered DFU mode right now.
Put your iPhone
in DFU mode before you can restore or downgrade the firmware.
Step 1. Turn off your iPhone.
Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode.
IPSW location in Windows
The exact location of IPSW files depends on the Windows version, username,
and the iOS hardware you are using. For example here is the location for user ‘username’ with an iPhone:
Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
Windows Vista & Windows 7: \Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
If you are a Windows 7 user looking for an iPod touch IPSW it would be located at:
C:/Users/username/AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer/iTunes/iPod Software Updates
In case really lost than get new IPSW files .
You can getnew IPSW files directly from Apple,
Download iPhone IPSW
Download iPad IPSW
Download iPod touch IPSW
These are all official versions of iOS firmware hosted by Apple.
