    So i f***ed up really hard this time... a really stupid mistake too.

    I tried updating my ipod 2g with 2.2.1 firmware to 3.0 firmware with redsn0w... and for "current firmware" i put the 3.0 IPSW... I know now this is a big clusterf*** of mistakes

    So i've searched through google as well as this website for possible answers... and have been doing it for three or four hours by now... so before you asked... i searched (and searched, and searched, and searched) before i posted a thread for help.

    You're probably not entering DFU correctly.

    Follow these instructions verbatim

    windows recognizes the device as "Apple Recovery (DFU) USB Driver"


    edit: If a mod or anyone sees this post, could you move it to the correct forum? I didn't see the 2g forum when i posted this... only the firmware

    Just go to your local Apple store if you're still under warranty, I did, and one of the smart guys there fixed it for me on the spot.

    no warranty. And i'm pretty sure the crack in my screen voids the warranty that is sure to be expired by now.

    if it helps at all, the error itunes gives me is 14

    The DFU function is stored on the NAND, which is read only (It can never be changed/overwritten). There will never be a time when you cannot DFU, aside from physical damage to the NAND chip, such as dropping the iPod. (More like ripping it apart, though.)

    Your on 3.0?

    Download Quickpwn RC3

    Give it the 2.0.2, yes thats a 0, firmware

    When the screen goes white, unplug the device.

    Close quickpwn RC3 and then plug it back in and open itunes then restore.
