After 2 days of frustration and lots of 1600's, 1601's, and 1602's.........I finally read step 8 a little closer. Step 8: "Start iTunes" .......
When I "Started iTunes" or (Restarted) iTunes, AFTER, the phone was placed into DFU mode, it worked flawlessly on both of the 4.2.8 phones.
Thanks to everyone else who posted suggestions and helpful hints that got a JB rookie through the process !

I Jailbroke my Ipod Touch and today i was listening to Pandora Radio. It then froze, I rebooted my Ipod and it said please enter Passcode but i did not have one set because I turned the Passcode off but when I go to enter the Passcode that it used to be its incorrect. What do I do? Is there a Master code or something?It is asking for a passcode longer than the regular 4 Digit passcode.... please help
In this case when the iphone or itouch or similar is giving you a message that its disabled, then we have to first force the device into recovery mode, from which we can do a normal restore.
Note that this removes all the content from your player.
Basically the steps are
1. Take out the usb cable, connect it to the computer, but not to the device.
2. Turn off your device
3. While pressing and holding the home button, reconnect the usb cable to the device, when you reconnect the usb cable the phone or itouch should power on.
If you are low on battery let it charge for a while, then start from the beginning (unplug the usb from the device)
4. While still holding the home button, until you see a message about "Connect to Itunes" then let go.
5. if not already open, open itunes, you should receive a short warning about recovery mode.
6. do a normal restore from itunes, it wipes the devices and the disabled message and the forgotten code are removed.

I did one other task prior to that and it may have something to do with the sudden success. I completely removed iTunes (had to use "add and remove programs") since I could not find an uninstall program for iTunes. Then I reinstalled iTunes 10.2.2, fresh. Maybe there are issues with parts of previous versions lurking around.
Good luck, I hope you find success, I know how frustrating it is.

Just followed this, and took only about a half hour when it was all said and done. I had to use the iREB tool to put my phone in the PWN state in order to get rid of the 1600 Error.
When loading iTunes, I get the same message saying there is an update from my carrier. Basically is this the same with as rooting with an Android? If your rooted/Jailbroken don't do any updates that iTunes/Carrier will attempt to send you?

Two quick questions if someone doesn't mind helping me out....
When I do the JB with this is it going to restore my phone to factory with JB or will it just JB and retain all of my current content on the phone?
This is tethered correct so if I reboot the phone I lose the JB? Or am I not understanding the whole tethered and untethered?
Thanks a lot ahead of time!!

Question, i did the whole jailbreak correctly, but do i restore from the previous backup or set up as a new iPhone because i dont want to lose any of my other information, i still want all my apps, music and contacts.
Edit: I restored from previous backup and all is well!

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm on a 3GS old bootrom that was already on 4.3.3. Downloaded snowbreeze and the 4.3.3 file and went through the hole process and chose restore from custom file snowbreeze made and I was on a recovery mode (itunes plug in screen) and got error 1603. So I'm gonna try the process again.

Just finishing up the JB. Worked like a charm once I followed ALL of the directions. Thanks for this thread it really made it easy.
One thing that wasn't apparent to me at first was to begin with iTunes closed, then everything worked great.
