    Hi everyone.
    Unlike other cases, my ipod now has no software whatsoever. It was jailbroken, and then i forgot the password, so i had to restore, in doing so it deleted 3.0 and now its stuck in recovery mode. The restore does not progress beyond 'verifying ipod restore' its a 2nd gen.
    help please!

    Try a different computer. Or press update instead of restore.
