    I have a 1.1.1 ipod touch.

    Recently it's been acting up so I want to format it.

    When I push restore in iTunes, it wants to update to 1.1.4 then format

    Is there a way to format it so I can keep 1.1.1?

    I just wanna get rid of my apps, music, pics, etc and start over.

    Also, unplugging my ethernet cable won't work. In order to restore it you need an internet connection.

    First you must download the 1.1.1 firmware (not from iTunes, there's a sticky with all the links somewhere here, search.) Then hold the SHIFT key when you click Restore in iTunes, prompting a dialogue box to appear. Select the firmware you downloaded and iTunes will restore your Ipod to 1.1.1.

    I would give you the link, but I am on my iPod now. It should not be hard to find.
