SO i tryed updating my firmware to 3.1.2 and it failed. Said my ipod was in recovery mode and i had to restore, that failed. I want to know is there a way to install a firmware withought itunes? I tryed using a custom firmware and pressed shift+restore, but that failed. So how do i manually install a firmware with no itunes? And is there a way i can manually restore? or will that happen when i install the firmwarE?
