    I have recently tried to jailbreak/tether my 8gb ipt 3G using blackra1n. As many of you know, blackra1n is NOT compatible with the 8gb ipt 3G. Now, my problem is that I cant get my ipod to restore ever since I have used blackra1n. When i try to restore it extracts the software but then says "Preparing Ipod", followed by error 1601. My ipod has blankscreen that is not lit up and it is detected everytime i plug it in by itunes. I have searched this forum and google, and have yet to find something that works. So far i have tried the following:
    Complete uninstall & reinstall itunes on multiple computers with xp & vista
    Dfu mode then restore
    different usb port

    try downloading the firmware (restore) image again. have you tried holding shift while you click restore in itunes and pointing to the file directly? the current firmware image for ipt3 8gb is iPod2,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw

    using the "real" 3rd gen firmware doesn't work for some reason (ie. iPod3,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw)
