    For some reason I cannot install the 3.0 software. I really want bluetooth for headsets and landscape texting. I have itunes 8.2.1 and a 2g touch. I have tried deleting and re-downloading the file several times. The ipod has never been jailbroken.

    After itunes downloads the software, it fails with a 1602 error every time. Then it gets stuck in restore mode and won't change off the "connect to itunes" screen. I have managed to fix that by shift-restoring to 2.2.1 that I found somewhere. Also I have tried running the irecovery to see if that would somehow affect the 3.0 install (instead of just getting the ipod to a bootable state) to no avail.

    Any ideas? I thought paying for the 3.0 update was stupid enough, and the thing makes my ipod take a crap. Is there anything I can do to get 3.0 installed on there?

    Will Apple be able to detect the use of the iRecovery tool and deny my warranty?

    Use the Device Upgrade Mode (DFU) and then update your iPod.

    Yeah try it in DFU.
    See if you still get the same error.

    Hey guys, thanks for helping me. I put the device into DFU (black screen, recognized by itunes), rebooted my computer, opened itunes and shift-restored with the 3.0 software that was downloaded by itunes (documents and settings/$user/application data/apple/etc) and I get a 1601 this time. I have gotten 1604, 1602, 1601, 2002 errors throughout this process.

    Every time, it says extracting the software, then it says preparing the ipod. That is where the error happens.

    Thanks again so much for helping.

    Why would you get landscape texting on 2G iPod touch?

    I think he meant Landscape Email.

    Try the link in my signature, and Apple can't tell if you use iRecovery.
