Recently, my ipod 2g shut down and when i tried to restore it i received an error (14). I put it into dfu, recovery, tried different computers and firmwares but still no luck. I still got a ton of errors (9,14,20 heck even a few 16xx's). Finally i took it to this place called irepair (in canada). They're basically a third-party ipod repair store. Unfortunatley, they ran a diagnostic test and said one of the chips inside was fried (local board or something). Im taking it to the apple store as this is covered by the warranty, but its jailbroken, so imma keep my fingers crossed. This is for all of you that cant get your ipod touch to restore, it might be a hardware problem like mine. So take it into apple and good luck.
