    Restore it with this guide >>

    Foolproof (iPhuc) method:

    1) Find a recent copy of iPhuc. Google it (for windows, try iPhuc Win32)

    2) Make sure you have your 1.1.1 ipsw file.

    3) Copy your 1.1.1 restore ipsw file to a separate directory, this will be your working file.

    4) Extract your ipsw file (it's just a renamed zip file - use winrar or winzip, I had trouble using the built in zip extraction in Windows Explorer)

    5)Navigate to Firmware\dfu and find the file that begins with WTF

    6)Copy this file to your iPhuc folder.

    7) Connect your ipod to your computer and open iphuc

    8)Type the following (w/o quotes):
    "enterrecovery"

    9) Wait on the ipod to reboot into recovery mode

    10) Now, in the recovery menu enter:
    a) "filecopytophone WTF.s5l89OOxall.RELEASE.dfu" (s5L89 Oh Oh (not zeros))

    b) "filecopytophone WTF.s5l900xall.RELEASE.dfu" (s5L89 zero zero)

    c) "cmd go"

    11) Your ipod should reboot.

    12) Open iTunes, it should say it found an iPod in recovery mode. Yay.

    13) Shift-click on restore and find your ORIGINAL (not unzipped) 1.1.1 restore file.

    14) Double-click, restore, wait, and you'll be back to 1.1.1

    if you dont want to restore you ipod...... you gonna need to find the way to get into you applications folder and delete those apps, i have the same problem, i did try shh, and i have lots of connections errors, but after like 20 times, it works, and that was how i fixed without restoring

    this is the part that i get stuck at when ever i have used this guide, this time and in the past. i type in 'cmd go' in the recovery form after copy the files exactly to how you did.
    everything goes smoothly but the ipod doesnt start up.
    any help will be appreciated.
    thanks!
