    I had a jailbroken 2.0.2 ipod and i just tried to update it to 2.1 through itunes. Everytime i tried to sift+update/restore on itunes it would appear to work fine until it got to about 1/2 way through the restore and the i would get "ipod could not be updated (error 6)" and then i would be locked into restore mode until i put back my 2.0.2 filmware. This happened when i was in DFU mode and restore mode. I tried on 2 different computers

    Any suggestions?

    This may sound stupid, but it's because you have your iPod on lock. Go into settings and set the lock option to never. And plug your iPod up to your computer, slide to unlock so it's at the homescreen. And then try updating it. That's what I use to do when it wouldn't allow me to update.
