    I accidentally put my untethered 2g ipod touch into recovery mode in order to change my boot logo. I tried to restore the NOR firmware, but there was an error 6, so I just put it into recovery mode.
    Now i'm stuck with my ipod in DFU, and I can't boot it up.
    Any help is appreciated.


    Okay here's how to fix
    iRecovery -s
    setenv autoboot true
    saveenv
    fsboot

    after that, restore to a NOR firmware.

    so it's not possible for me to keep all my jailbroken stuff, music, etc?
    how about if I use a NOR fw, like redtool?

    weird, I totally responded to this, but its not here.....

    this happened to me. take the stock img3 files from another ipsw and put them into your NOR ipsw. then act like you are doing custom boot/recovery logos. this will bring your ipod to where it was. after that, fix your files (chances are somethings not right... size, transparency, etc) and do the NOR only again... BTW you want recovery mode, not DFU. to get out of dfu, try holding both power and home till it cycles power, then go into recovery from there (I have not tried this), i never went into DFU mode.

    Use these commands in iRecovery:

    Code:
    setenv autoboot true
    saveenv
    fsboot
    (two things: I can't verify it at the moment, so it might be "auto-boot" and you might have to be in recovery mode for it to work.)

    EDIT: it might look like it's not doing anything, so just give it a few minutes

    actually, i turned it off, then it went back into recovery mode.
    Looks like i'll have to find a solution to this someday.

    cool the error 6 is gone, my ipod is okay now! thanks so much :]

    You're welcome. It fixed my error 6 also, so I decided to tell you before you restored and erased everything on your iPod. lol

    okay, now apparently there's an error 13 (ipod could not be restored.)
    this is really annoying.

    hey guys, ive had my touch JB for over 3 months now, but for no apparent reason it slipped into DFU mode, I'd like to boot it back up with having to restore it. Is this possible?
