    Ok, so for some reason my installer wouldnt work anymore b/c i would always get the msg " main execution failed " and i couldnt install anything. So someone told me to restore and just start over and it should fix everything.

    But now when i restore ( ive done this before several times in the pass and it worked ) it goes through the extracting software, then preparing to restore then it gets to the restoring part. Half way through the restoring, it crashes and says there was an uknown error [6]. And after several tries it just kept happening.

    So the person that told me to restore it said that since that isnt working, he had me download a 1.1.4 restore .ipsw from a website and try the restore + SHIFT method. Then again the extracting, prepare and then the restoring. It crashes again saying an unknown error again but with a different number [1426] or something ( not sure if that matters ).

    Now i cant do anything with my itouch b/c everytime i turn it on, it gives me the picture of the usb and itunes saying that i need to connect. Is my ipod broken ?

    Someone please help me ! SORRY FOR THE LONG READ lol.

    reinstalling iTunes might work or it may not the be the problem. If you go to apples support forum, it lists all the errors and their corresponding numbers, just look up your error and it will tell you the cause and how to resolve ur issue. But you never know, reinstalling may do the trick. Good luck.

    No uninstalling itunes just gets rids of preferences and itunes. Also make sure you uninstall apploe mobile devices and the software update. Also uninstall quicktime (do this first) and then reinstall quicktime from a single download. This worked for me after 3 reboots from all the installing.

    If it does delete your stuff just back it up.
    1.find itunes folder that contains you music,album artwork ect.
    2.Copy all the files inside to another folder
    3.Install Itunes
    4.Overite with copied files
    All your music will be there and it will reconize your ipod
