    hey guys my friend's brother had an itouch 2g and it had a passcode. My friend locked it to the point where you have to connect to itunes. The computer they had it synced with is long gone so they sold it to me for 70 dollars and told me the passcode.
    I can get the money back but its in perfect condition so i want it to work.
    The thing is, is that i put it in the restore mode DFU thing (hold home while it reboots) and connect it to my itunes. It tells me to download the new ipod software to restore, but while itunes is downloading, the ipod goes out of DFU cuz it isn't doing anything. The download finishes and even if its back in DFU by the time its finished, it shot me some random error message i didn't catch.

    Thats all the details i can think of. I'm interested in it being just factory settings, no jailbreaking. Put some music and apps.
    Thanks

    if it goes out of dfu while connected, just un-plug it then plug it back in
