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 . 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  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.
