post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Iphone 3GS, (with spoiled home button / not jailbroken)
I tried to downgrade my iphone from IOS6.0.1 to IOS 5.1.1
While i manually enter my phone to DFU by using the redsnow way,
but i failed to downgrade my phone because i dont have the shsh bolbs file. 
So i canceled and tried to restore my phone, at first error 1600 appears and i tried to restore the second time.
however, error 1601 occurs and phone is dead now. i cant turn it on, cant connect to itunes, black screen while charging it (dont know wether is it charging) 
 

if tried many ways to "wake" my phone but everyway i tried is useless.
help pls

Note : home button spoiled , not jailbroken 1hmm.gif

This error is often related to USB timing. Try changing USB ports, using a different dock connector to USB cable, and other available USB troubleshooting steps. If you are using a dock, bypass it and connect directly to the white Apple USB dock connector cable. If the issue persists on a known-good computer, the device may need service.

If the issue is not resolved by USB isolation troubleshooting, and another computer is not available, try these steps to resolve the issue:

  1. Connect the device to iTunes, confirm that the device is in Recovery Mode. If it's not in Recovery Mode (Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time. After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.)
  2. Restore and wait for the error.
  3. When prompted, click OK.
  4. Close and reopen iTunes while the device remains connected.
  5. The device should now be recognized in Recovery Mode again.
  6. Try to restore again.

If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try restoring using a known-good USB cable, computer, and network connection.

 

it's from apple's support site

Thanks for the reply :) 
 

I've tried using different cable / USB port 
I used my ipod touch to connect and it works perfectly.
 

My iphone home button is broken, that is why i am struggling because i cant use power + home button method.

 

I've tried connect to another computer and it is still the same :(
Neither of the computer can detect my iphone even the photo folder of my iphone ( doesnt have the USB connected sound at all)

wondering to bring it to service but im afriad its too costy.
