1601... normally when iOS verification via iTunes gets held up by your Antivirus and/or firewall. Drop your antivirus and firewall then try again.

After doing that... use a different USB port on your computer. Sounds odd... but it makes a difference.

Windows defender turned off, avast turned off, windows firewall from my control panel turned off, switched usb each attempt, ran redsnow as admin was able to put into pwned dfu, was able to find the downloaded ISPW you gave me and used that as a restore would receive a message saying it would restore it, one i didnt get before attempting that way it would keep itself at the "Preparing iPhone for backup.." and after about 2minutes i would receive the error 1601

I'll be honest w/ you, I'm at a loss at this point... I'm sorry. Hopefully someone will come along here before too long and point you in another direction that I'm missing.
