    I have a 1st gen iPod Touch that I just tried to update from 2.2.1 (jailbroken) to 3.0.

    I "acquired" a 3.0 file from a very trustworthy source, and I tried the shift+click restore thing to restore directly to 3.0. However, instead of going smoothly, all I have now is an image of a russian guy with his hands thrown up in glee saying something in Russian that I can't understand.

    Are the Russians on a crusade to brick people's iPod's or something? Is there anything I can do?

    (My computer won't detect my ipod when I plug it in, I'm not sure if getting into recovery mode is possible)

    EDIT:
    I did some googling and apparently it's Steve Jobs saying "Hello" in Russian?

    That's what you get for pirating your firmware.
