    while trying to install iphone apps on my 1.1.3 jailbroken touch, it froze and went to restore mode. so i thought "i'll go back to all the jailbreaking process". on my first restoring try, i couldn't make it on 1.1.1 nor 1.1.2. so i ended up restoring it on the "official" 1.1.3. I tryied to force restore it a couple of times to downgrade it, but everytime i try either .1 or .2 i get the same error message:
    "an unknown error ocurred (1)"
    all i can do is restore it on .3 (i've even tried downgrading itunes to 7.5)
    what can i do?????

    use the recovery method i think it was make sure your ipod is on itunes then hold the power and home key until ipod is gone on itunes then let go of the power button while holding the home key then couple seconds ipod should be back on itunes and then it would detect it in recovery mode then hold option (mac) i forgot what key to hold on PC and click restore and then downgrade your ipod if you have the .1 or .2 file this is just top of my head but you guys could use the search button on the forum

    JUST PUT IT IN DFU MODE AND YOU WILL ALL BE FINE!!...

    Here...

    The world’s easiest method to downgrade your iPod touch from 1.1.3 back to 1.1.1
    NOTE: This is NOT the same as putting your iPod into RESTORE MODE. If you put your iPod into "Restore Mode" when you try to Downgrade to 1.1.1, it will give you an error.

    1.) Connect your iPod touch to your running iTunes (version 7.5 is preferred).
    Make sure it shows up in iTunes.

    2.) Make sure your iPod is showing its 1.1.3 home screen (it’s not in Recovery Mode.)

    3.) Put the iPod touch in DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) Mode as follows:

    a.) Press and hold-down both the Power and Home buttons.

    b.) Release the Power button when you see the iPod disconnects and disappears from iTunes. This takes place in about 10 seconds. The iPod’s screen is blank.

    c.) Release the Home button when you see the iPod re-connects and re-appears in iTunes. This happens in about 20 seconds. The screen is still blank until the iPod reconnects.

    It’s good to go!

    Now you can do the usual restore firmware procedure with Option+Restore (Shift+Restore in PC), and subsequently jailbreak your iPod touch once again.

    use the iphuc method. This will disable and give you the availability to restore to any firmware. Beleive me. Download this and follow the readme.

    P.S. i was unable to do this on a mac. even with iphuc universal. So.. if you are on a mac like me... get a crappy windows computer.

    if this has help you. click on the balance under my avatar.
