So like many of you, I am also having troubles downgrading my iPod Touch 1G. I was on the 3.0 beta, and now I want to just get back to anything, even 3.0, i just can't stand it being in restore mode forever... So I try to restore, to 2.2 and to 2.2.1 and no luck, just preparing to restore for a long time then 1604 error. Tried all my USB ports on my PC (Vista) and i havn't tried on my Mac yet. But I will... Anyway, the 3.0 FW was on my flashdrive, and well... i lost the flashdrive yesterday.... I have no luck. any help is appreciated... please dont tell me really obvious bad answers because trust me i wouldnt have started a new thread unless i had gone through all of the obvious steps (other than trying on my mac) thanks.
