    Ok, so i downloaded firmware 3.0 for my iPod touch 2g from iTunes, I go to update it but after awhile of saying "Preparing iPod bladdy blah blah" the iPod is sometimes displaying the connect to itunes screen, a black screen, or a white screen, it gives me either a: 1601 error, 1602, 1603. And after it fails it stays in recovery mode, so i try to update it there and I get the same problem. I tried it in DFU mode, same problem. So I tried to go back to 2.2.1, it worked(WHAAATT THEEE FUUUUUU--). But it still will not upgrade to 3.0 successfully.

    I can usually work through any problems by myself, but this has me beat! I've been trying for hours!

    So, any help is appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Try using a different port, if it doesn't solve it.
    Try another computer (If you have one)

    I had errors updating it, but I used another one and it worked fine

    I have actually been trying this mainly on my laptop running 8.2 , but i was also trying with my desktop which I just realized is not 8.2. So I will update the desktop and try there again. I have little hope...
