    Been reading through the threads and getting so confused with peoples comments... so wondering for help..

    My iPod TOuch 2G is currently at 3.1.1 Unjailbroken.

    Backed up and used PwnageTool on OSX (Which takes years to search for the F'ing Firmware! Geez) and created the custom firmware.

    Put iPod into DFU and then into iTunes and tried to restore usin the custom firmware.

    Sits there at Preparing iPod for donkeys years... then finally I get 1604 error... Grrreat!
    Did something and got my iPod to show the Connect to iTunes screen after getting 1604 about 5 times.... So on that screen same thing... got 1600 error... then 1601 error.. then 1603 error.. it cant make up its mind!

    Given up and restored my backup and that worked perfectly?!

    So I think it doesnt like the custom build.

    Any ideas?

    And can no one say Use Windows... I cant be arsed boot into Windows lol.

    Again, I know there are multiple threads on this.. but im so lost lol.

    That was happening to me so i downgraded to 3.0 and jailbroke. Then i put it in recovery mode(not dfu mode). To do this you power off the ipod then hold down the home button down and plug it in. Then i restored to my custom firmware and it worked

    my ipod touch 2G was already jailbroken with 3.1 for sure, mate!
    and you have to know about this : this Is the easiest jailbroken i've done ..

    you only Just have to download custom firmware for your device (search it : ipod touch custom firmware 3.1) and jailbreak it with the latest iTunes..
    When your device connecting to iTunes, click shift+restore and browse the download firmware.

    You only Just have to watch and after the process finished, your device Will successfully jailbroken. Just ask me on twitter if you Find done troubles.. @bayuherdiawan

    CMIIW - sorry for the bad english 

    Aha!
    Downgrade to 3.0
    Jailbreak 3.0
    THEN Restore the custom 3.1.1 firmware I created in PwnageTool.

    DONE!

    Woo!
