    itunes doesnt like the FW you try to restore with. Try downloading a brand new FW with itunes, restore(and then jailbreake iti f you want)

    Reinstall the latest iTunes and restart your computer and try again.

    I've failed 4 jailbreaks so far at the hands of the 1604 error. I used the tutorial above to restore the iPod on 2 occasions. On the other times, I ended up getting iTunes to restore my iPod the normal way (non shift click) to the latest update. Before my 4th attempt, I completely reinstalled all Apple products on my computer.

    I am unsure what causes this error.
