    First of all, I know I am probably not in the good section and I am sorry about it.

    Ok, so I had a 2.1 ipod touch that I wanted to downgrade to 1.1.5

    I downloaded the firmware at http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ and the i tried to restaure my ipod with this firmware, but I forgot to download an older version of iTunes.

    The restauration went wrong, and now when I open my ipod everything I can get i a steve jobs drawing saying something in russian.

    Itunes recognized it as an ipod in recovery mode, but I had an hard drive failure and had to replace it(yes, everything was going very wrong that day -_- ) I reinstalled itunes i my new hdd with a brand new copy of windows xp professional, but when I plug the ipod, windows tell me that it detected a new hardware (iboot, ipod in recovery mode or something like this) but that it couldn't be installed properly, and now iTunes don't detect it.

    How can I solve my problem?

    The reason why I wanted to downgrade isn't the point, the point is that my ipod don't work and I hope I didn't screwed it forever D =

    What's the Steve Jobs thing? Did you have a custom boot logo installed? If so you may have replaced the DFU mode logo when you jailbroke. If you put into DFU mode and are seeing some kind of image on the screen you should be okay and your device should be in DFU mode. Now go ahead and try and restore using the Shift+Restore thing and select your 1.1.5. firmware. If teh clean flash to origtinal 1.1.5 firmware works then you can go ahead and jailbreak 1.1.5.

    p.s. It's probably best to remove that link to the firmwares in your original post as it's not allowed here. Thanks

    Good luck
