    Hey guys.

    I've got a problem. When trying to install the 3.0 Firmware on an 8GB Ipod Touch the Ipod tab under iTunes disappears. It seems iTunes fails to recognize it. I put it in DFU mode, it all appears fine, I go on the iPod tab in iTunes, shift+click custom restore, select the 3.0 Firmware. It extracts the software... then it goes to Preparing iPod for Restore, but as soon as it says that it stops recognizing the iPod.

    Anyone had this happen to them, and know how to restore?

    Cheers,
    -J

    Try recovery mode instead. You MUST buy 3.0, if you did it should update without issues, if you didn't then sorry, no one on here is going to help you. Piracy is not allowed on these forums.

    Buy your firmware.

    EDIT: realized you might be downgrading

    I've tried both recovery and DFU. Gershmer, this was recently bought, I was attempting to Jailbreak it.

    So it won't update? and your not jailbroken? Contact Apple.
