    Itunes error 1669 for Ios 7

    Anyone from Hawaii successfully updated their Iphone 5 to Ios 7? I tried updating numerous times but kept running into error 1669. Any insights would be appreciated.

    iOS 7 requires iTunes 11.1 in order to restore, backup and sync. Try updating to iTunes 11.1 & check how it works....

    If you come across any error while updating, restore the iOS 7 ipsw in DFU Mode.

    I verified that I have the latest version of iTunes. I tried updating to Ios 7 via just connecting to iTunes, dfu mode and connect to iTunes, df mode and install ios 7 files download via a reputable site, and nothing seems to work. I'm now stuck in the "connect to iTunes" screen. My phone is practically useless right now.

    1669 is an iTunes + server based issue. You can attempt to re-install iOS 6 then a fresh upgrade to iOS 7. Or give iOS 7 a few more tries.

    I must have tried to restore it like 30+ times to no avail. Itune restore 2/3 of the way and then the error 1669 shows up. From what I read, this seems to be a new error that Apple just found out. Anyone else have any insights on how I am able to fix this issue so I could use my Iphone 5 again?

    There are no known solutions to this issue. The water damage theory may or may not be the case.

    I am facing the same issue and guess it is related to modem firmware which is a hardware issue.

    Error 1669 is relatively a new issue, even the apple support staff are not aware of it.

    A user noticed a tiny red dot on the screen. Did you noticed any red dots on the screen?

    I really think that this is a water damage issue. Apparently once the upgrade determines that there is an issue with the chip it sends into recovery mode forever...

    Did you have water damage on your iPhone prior to the upgrade?
