    I guess I'll start by listing the tutorial I'm using.

    http://outgoing.ifans.com/video.php?l=http://youtube.com/watch?v=yx8A6ZkEvyY

    When I enter the command prompt and follow the instructions to enter the 12 or so lines of code, everything seems to go fine until I proceed to the next step which is to restore my ipod using the custome firmware.


    When I select the CFW, I new window pops and says preparing iPod for restore and a few minutes later, an error message appears saying the ipod couldnt be restored.

    Any suggestions?

    Lots of people have received these errors, but no one has offered us anything helpful.

    What error do you get? I kept getting the unknown error 2005, and one other I can't remember it though, and I updated my itunes and restarted my computer and it worked.

    This is the same error I got, 1604.
    I ended up using this and it worked the first time. I believe the error means you messed up when creating your custom firmware file. But the tool I linked to makes it for you and jailbreaks and has a boot tool if you ever need to reboot.

    I don't know about the OP, but error 14 is really annoying. I have the latest version of iTunes and have tried to jb for over 8 hours altogether.

    1604 is not because you created the patched fw wrongly. I've received it with a gui created fw too.
