Thanks so much for your help... I'll restore the iPad tonight and wait for the next JB.
I want to thank you "f4780y" for the excellent tut (first page) on restoring Ipad.
I have a Ipad 1 bought recently second hand and had to connect to Itunes to set it up all went OK and after installing some tutorial movies for ableton live and a lot of music on another computer not connected to Internet.
I went back to the internet computer where I originally set it up in Itunes and Itunes would not recognise it and said I had to restore factory settings. so went through that procedure 6 times and would not restore giving 1604 as error.
so went looking for help and found you.
After reading the first page tut and downloading 5.1.1 which I used to try again to restore, no joy.
error message this time 1601.
so went to a faster computer using same cable and installed itunes and transferred the download 5.1.1 and this time it all went smoothly.
apart from loosing everything I had installed orginally (Yuk) I am very happy
thankyou "f4780y" and regards from,
160X errors are driver/software based issues. They only really (if only) occur on Windows computers. There are a few ways to solve this issue
1. Uninstall your USB drivers, and reboot your PC. Retry.
2. Uninstall your USB drivers and iTunes, reboot, reinstall iTunes, retry.
3. Use a different computer.
4. (Failsafe) Create a new user/profile on your computer, and restore
Make sure you have administrative access/rights or you probably won't be able to uninstall the drivers/iTunes and/or you probably can't create a new profile.
I have the most current ipsw 6.1.3, followed the directions as:
First placed iPad in DFU mode and opened iTunes, iPad needs restored. clicked ok
pressed 'restore' and used the restore ipsw,
The pad screen first black, then apple logo comes with the swirly circle but immediately stops
for several minutes, itunes shows 'preparing ipad for restore'
Then the error code 21 appears in itunes, the ipad screen goes back to showing the plug in picture.
Before going in the DFU mode this is on the ipad screen:
[NAND] _FindFlashMediaAndKeepout :429 physical nand block offset 16
[NAND] start:220 this 8x9505ac88 PROVIDER=8x95eeec200 flash media+8X
[NAND] WMR_Start:149 Apple PPN NAND Driver, Read/Write
[NAND] WMR_Start:174 FIL_Init [OK]
The iPad 2 was not jailbreaked.
Would appreciate any help
Error 21 often occurs when other software on your PC is interfering with the process. Ensure EVERYTHING possible is closed / shut down / quit on your PC before you start. In particular, all anti-virus, firewall, and other security software you may have.
I have iPad2 GSM+WiFi Jailbroken which run smoothly before. Suddenly, my iPad always reboot after 3 mins.
I tried to restore to the latest iOS recently, but always ending with error code -1 even in DFU mode.
I went to service centre and they said it had hardware problem. However, it never fell down or whatsoever that would cause hardware issue.
Then, i tried to restore using Sn0wbreeze 2.9.14, and found out the problem occurred in updating baseband stage. I find out that A5+ processor couldnt preserve the baseband
Do you have any solution or idea on this? Please kindly help me
If you have already taken it in for service and they have told you there is a hardware fault, then I'm afraid that is what you have. A hardware fault.

If you have tried all of the steps in the first post of this tutorial, then I'm sorry, but your iPad is likely broken and cannot be restored :(

I opted for the Out of warranty replacement and the new iPad will be delivered to me within a couple of days with a 90 day warranty.
Thanx for the help.
Hi, I'm trying to unjaibreak my ipad 3 att 4g lte. I followed all steps on forum but still get error 1600 on my macbook. Any suggestions?
I may be experiencing a similar problem, but I'm not sure so please bear with me. I had a jailbroken iPad Mini at 6.1.1 (?) using Evasion ever since it came out. I forgot to recharge it all day yesterday. After I recharged it, the "Connect to iTunes with USB" logo screen appears and now I can't go past that.
I don't want to lose all my apps/jailbroken material. Is there a way to fix this? Or is my only option to reset and upgrade to 6.1.3? Much thanks!
