    If you find a fix I hope you post it, cause I'm in the same boat.

    For now I'm thinking of trying installing itunes 7.5 on a different computer and see if I can get 1.1.4 on my ipod using the method described here:

    i have no problem in getting to the DFU mode..i'd downloaded the 2.0 5A347 firmware on to my desktop and used that to restore my touch again. Stil same 1603 error. Currently downloading the 1.1.4 firmware using itunes. Will update on how it works out. Thanks.

    UPDATE
    couldnt download 1.1.4 because the server timed out. So i tried with the DFU mode...even uninstalled itunes and reinstalled it. Getting inconsistent errors like 1604 then 1601. None of it seems to work. Only hope is to try it on another's comp. If anyone has a solution please let me know.
