Its not jailbroken. Ive tried every trick in the book from installations, uninstallations, driver checks, service and process checks, downgrading itunes, and have ultimately ended up with this situation: iPod is connected via USB and is stuck in recovery mode saying it needs to be connected to iTunes to finish. iTunes did see the iPod when it first went into recovery mode, but once it was all installed and started up for the first time, it once again couldn't be recognized. The message I get everytime isnt an error its just an alert saying that the iPhone could not be identified properly, and to disconnect and try again. Yes, it says iPhone instead of iPod.
