    I recently tried to update my touch to v3 via itunes. The ipsw file seems to download ok (it's where it should be) but I always get an error whilst carrying out the update. This renders the touch useless and I have to use the shift-update function to 'update' back to the 2.2.1.

    I've never had a problem with updating before, any suggestions would be appreciated. I've completely shut down the touch prior to updating each time, and re-installed itunes (although I don't know if uninstalling itunes within 'add or remove programs' within XP leaves any unwanted drivers?).

    Thanks.

    did you use a tutorial?
    try putting it in restore mode then restore to 3.0, make sure your itunes is at least 8.2

    Now working. I downloaded the ipsw file from another 'source' and it updated first time. Perhaps the original download was corrupted?

    Thanks for the reply anyhow!
