    I was restoring my ipod back to 1.1.1 because Home Button didnt work and I thought that might of helped. So when I was restoring I got an error message saying unable to restore(some number) So how do I force restore it without using the home button.

    connect it 2 your computer and resrore it from there - find a fw on the internet not 2.0 or above because that is illegal, but when u get a fw from the internet
    alt-click "Restore" in itunes and browse for the downloaded fw (mac)
    shift-click "Restore" in itunes and browse for the downloaded fw (pc)
