    Hi all,

    As you may have guessed, I have a bit of a problem. I was getting an ipsw creation error with WinPwn (2.0.0.3) and so I decided to use xWinPwn. It created the custom 2.0 IPSW file fine. I then went to the second stage (pwning) - it pwned iTunes.

    I put my ipod touch into recovery mode and opened iTunes. I shift-clicked restore and select my custom ipsw file. Though everytime I try to restore - it extracts software, then I get:

    "The iPod 'iPod' could not be restored. An unknown error occured (6)."

    iPhuc won't work either.

    Anyway, I try doing a shift-click restore, using the original apple 2.0 ipsw file and it can restore!

    For some reason the custom_ipsw.ipsw file ends up with me getting a: "The iPod 'iPod' could not be restored. An unknown error occured (6)." error.

    I hope you wonderful people can help

    perhaps a DFU restore might help, I had a similar problem

    It depends on if something went wrong with the ipsw creation or
    you didn't put it into DFU mode, go ahead and try it on DFU mode.

    I was talking to planetbeing last night and he said that a possible fix is to:

    1) locate on your pc: C:\Users\Josh\appdata\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\Device Support

    2) delete all files in that dierctory

    3) Restore to official firmware

    4) rebuild firmware incase there was an error in the build

    5) Re-pwn you itunes/ipod

    6) PUT IT INTO DFU MODE NOT RESTORE MODE...THAT IS CRITICAL

    7)Restore


    It worked for a guy yesterday

    zankyzonk connect yuour iPod and open iTunes then turn your ipod off then hold the two buttons for 10 seconds then after those ten seconds (NOT WHEN SOMETHING POPS UP but when the 10 seconds are up) let go of the sleep/wake button (the one on top) but keep holding the home button until something pops up on itunes saying your ipod is in recovery mode even though its really in dfu mode. by the way your ipod should not be showing anything on the screen.

    Aha! Thanks very much indeed. I've used recovery mode since... forever, and I've never had a problem. The first time It needed DFU. I see the difference now. Thanks very much. It's doing a restore right now!
