    Hello everyone. I have searched/browsed the forums looking for a way to fix my ipod.

    I attempted to jailbreak it using touchfree but it froze a few minutes in. I left it running for about an hour before I closed it and decided I should restore the ipod and start over.

    But itunes kept giving me an error when I tried to restore it. So I followed the steps on the forums to put it into forced recovery mode. That still didn't work.

    Now it will not leave recovery mode.

    Since then I have tried a second computer and uninstalling and reinstalling all apple software installed on my computer. Nothing is working. Anyone have any suggestions til I take it back?


    Edit: Also I should add when itunes attempts to restore the ipod the ipod seems to reboot. and the error code I am getting now is 1604 and sometimes 1611.

    Nevermind. Tried a 3rd computer at work. Had to attempt a restore a couple times, but it did work. Yay! I guess what they say is true. Third times a charm.

    boobox, this is common. Sometimes it takes a few tries to get the Touch to restore after jailbreaking. I've had to try as many times as seven. Tips: Restart your computer and use different USB ports.

    By the way, is it boo box or is it boob ox?

    I would have to say I attempted to restore my ipod about 30 or so times. Trying different variations of attempts. Granted it didnt actually complete a single restore til i tried that 3rd computer.

    and to answer your other question its boo box.
