    ok heres what happened about a couple of months ago with the release of the new ipod firmware and stuff i decided to get the new 2.0 software but i didnt pay i did the shift click thing on itunes 7.7 and downloaded the firmware well ..... back then my ipod used to be jailbroken and i decided to restore it to get the 2.0 software. i was bored today so i decided to jailbreak the thing again with ziphone and my cable got unpluged the one that was connecting my ipod to my computer (macbook). so now im left with a ipod in recovery mode that wont restore because whenever i try to restore it also wants me to update which dosent work because i hacked to get it in the first place.
    if theres anyway i could restore my ipod without updating i think i could fix it



    please write back i just got an ihome for christmas i havent got to use

    lol ur not supposed to use ziphone on 2.x
    first, connect to itunes
    u need to hold home for 5sec, then hold power for 10sec without letting go of home, then let go of power and keep holding home till u hear something on itunes or it connects in dfu mode. then just shift-click restore, find the firmware, or download it from the link, and use that ihome after u sync the music

    next time u jailbreak, use quickpwn, search for a guide for macs
