    I was on a 2.0 jailbroken firmware with my 16 GB ipod touch that I bought last year. Something happened when I tried to restore my ipod to original settings and now I cannot get it to work.

    The iPod's screen is at the recovery screen, however I cannot restore with iTunes because of error 1611. I have searched and found numerous ways that this can be fixed both here and on apple.com, but I still cannot get anything to work. Are there any other alternate ways of restoring?

    Some things I have tried:

    Could not put into DFU mode
    Reinstalled Itunes
    Updated USB drivers
    Tried on different computers
    and thats actually all I can remember thus far, although I'll post if I remember later.

    Thanks if anyone can help.

    When you restore, try holding shift while clicking restore, and choosing various different firmware version files, this is the only other thing i can think you can try.

    BTW, make sure you are going into DFU mode properly.
    Guide: (i didn't make this)

    [HOW TO] Put iPhone/iPod Touch In DFU mode
    1. Make sure your iPhone/iPod Touch is turned on and connected to iTunes
    2. Hold the power and home button down at the same time till it turns off
    3. As soon (like once you see) the iPhone/iPod Touch disappears (disconnects) from iTunes, let go of the power button but continue to hold the Home button
    4. Wait till iTunes says "Your iPod is in recovery mode and has to be restored", if you look at your iPhone/iPod Touch the screen will be black...This is normal and your iPhone/iPod Touch is in DFU mode




    Hope this helps
