How to restore your iPod from BSD root error when there is an error Okay so I got it and got really mad, so I began experimenting, and my iPod is in the process of being restored atm. 1. DL iPhuc 2. Get your iPod in recovery mode 3. After recovery mode is up, open up iPhuc and type in the following commands, which are case sensitive: filecopytophone WTF.s5l8900xall.RELEASE.dfu cmd go 4. Restore to an earlier firmware! Try it out and see if it works for you.
