    Hey, this has been driving my crazy all day.

    My iPod touch 2g 8gig was stuck in recovery mode. I tried using all the different firmwares, both in recovery mode and DFU mode, but they all came up with errors. I then tried using RecBoot to exit recovery mode. This however didn't work and ipod is now in a recovery reboot loop whenever it is plugged in.

    My itunes is up-to-date. I can't remember what the firmware for my iPod was as I changed it a while ago, but it wasn't jailbroken.

    Please help, I really don't know how to fix this, much appreciated.

    Do you have your shsh saved with cydia? If you do, then tiny unbrella will edit your host file, and allow you to restore your device.

    Try restoring to the latest iOS version [remove the redirection to Saurik's server] and then downgrade [add it back.] and see if that works.

    No I don't think I do.

    I have tried to restore to the latest iOS version, but I get error codes every time I try.

    The recover loop has disappeared now. But I am still stuck in recovery mode, and getting error messages whenever I try to restore.

    If you never saved any shsh's you can only upgrade to the current version(4.1).
