    Hi,
    I have read a long time on this forum, including searching for answers on google.

    For starters, the ipod is put in DFU mode. Restore sometimes completes, sometimes there is error(6). I have tested on 2 different macs, and on a PC.

    The screen is constantly black, unless when recovering through itunes. I never get the screen with the cable and iTunes.
    I cant seem to escape DFU mode. I DO hold both buttons 10-11 seconds, then only home button until iTunes finds it.

    • I have tried the following tools.
    • iRecovery, but it cant find the ipod
    • iPhuc reports errors every time
    • ZiPhone could not boot it
    • iLiberty did not work
    • Boot Tool.zip from this site did not do the trick
    • iFuntastic didn´t work.

    I tried with itunes 7.5, no luck.

    I have really tried everything I´ve found, but nothing seems to wake this ipod up. I have used DFU mode on iphones previously, so I know how it works. Your not supposed to brick an iPod touch, but this ipod is pushing it.

    Is there anybody out there which can hint on what I might have forgotten? Would really appreciate it.

    Or at least, how I can get iRecovery to recognize the ipod. Error message from terminal is shown below:

    Use the latest version of iTunes. Or sent it to the Apple Store and they can fix it as long as your warranty is void.

    When you said "Restore sometimes completes" what happens after that?

    I have the last version of iTunes.

    The weird thing, is that on my macbook unibody, restore completes without error, but on my iMac, it restores with error(6).

    If I could only get iRecovery to connect to it. I think the solution might be there..

    Any suggestions?
