    Hello.

    I'm trying to restore my 2nd Generation iPod Touch to its original official firmware with iTunes.

    I have correctly entered DFU mode and iTunes is picking up the device, but when I click restore I get an error message stating:

    I have the latest version of iTunes. Anyone know what the problem is here?

    Cheers.

    I had the same problem. All I did was kill iTunes and restart it and it worked after that. If that doesn't work, I'd try reinstalling.

    Just shift + click and select the standard 2.2.1 firmware. It will restore as usual.

    Where could one find that? I jailbroke with redsn0w 0.3 Beta if that helps.

    That part doesn't really matter. Look in your iTunes iPod Software update folder... I'm not sure of that directory off hand. Try doing a search.

    The directory on mac is /Username (whatever it is named)/Library/iTunes/Ipod Software Updates. On pc it is C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    AHA! Thanks. I found it in:

    C:\Documents and Settings\John\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    For anyone that stumbles cross this via Google.

    Thanks ever so much Chris and jawcl.
