    Hi guys
    I cannot upate or restore my ipod touch 2g mc!
    Heres what I did:
    Jailbroke 3.1.3 using Spirit
    All working fine until I want to update to 4
    I downloaded OS 4 for 2g off www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/
    I clicked restore but it never gets past "preparing ipod for restore"
    I can use irecovery to get it out of recovery mode but it is still
    only 3.1.3
    In itunes there are various errors like when trying to update it crashes, and restore errors 2005 and sometimes (but not anymore) error 3000
    PLZ HELP THANKS
    P.S. I am on mac osx 10.5.4 and using itunes 9.0.1

    Did you have SHSH blobs saved? If you do, you need to add a line to your hosts file that will allow you to restore.

    Just google it and its always a good idea to be up to date with itunes.
    BTW Welcome to the forums and remember to read the rules before posting.

    OK fixed it now.
    Update still does not work work but I upgraded to itunes 10
    and used restore.
    And also the Hosts file thing was very useful and helped to
    restore so thanks pyromatic.
    Thanks, from itouch_samee
