    I was using an online guide that linked the 1.1.4 ipod touch firmware, expect it was theiphone firmware. Now I'm having major issues with iPod and I can't restore it using iTunes.

    I have done the following:

    Held down power and home button for ten seconds, then held down home for another ten seconds. This resulted in my ipod touch's screen going white for a couple of seconds. I then tried shift clicking restore with the 1.1.4 firmware and just clicking restore, but neither has resulted in a fix.

    Basically iTunes thinks my Ipod Touch is an iPhone and won't restore properly.

    Help would be great, thanks!

    You'll need to use DFU Mode rather than using Recovery Mode.

    To place your iPod touch into DFU Mode:

    1. Open ZiPhone and select 'Prepare for Upgrade'
    2. Open iLiberty+ and other the Other Tools tab select 'Enter DFU Mode'
