Why my iPhone 4 cannot restore 1618. Stuck in DFU mode?

OK i have an iPhone 4 here. It doesn't boot up, see absolutely nothing on the screen, I have tried Tinyumbrella and it says its in DFU mode, iTunes is saying its in recovery mode and needs to be restored, I've used iReb and it says it is in a Pwned state but whenever i try to restore in iTunes with custom or stock it gets to either the apple or snowbreeze logo on screen and the spinning wheel and says preparing iphone for restore but then just stops with the 1618 error. I've tried reinstalling and basically anything else I can think of, just cant get passed that part of the restore.

Any ideas anyone?

Error 1618 is most commonly due to faulty iTunes. I would re-install iTunes. See if fixed. Maybe try another computer to Restore. If that works then at least the iPhone is not the problem.

Download firmware 4.3.2 or4.3.3 open itune, connect iphone, let itune recognize iphone. hold shift +restore look for the firmware you downloaded and click on it, open+restore.

if not success, try again. hold+shift choose same firmware do same.

Note: pay attention on the iphone serial # to appear, once appear you good to go!

You may still have error 3194 or 1015 which is good.

next step is download redsnow: run program+browse firmware 4.3.2+open, let redsnow recognize it, if good, hit next or install cydia, follow redsnow instruction. you should be good to go.

If 4.3.2 not recognize then try 4.3.3
