I have searched this forum and anything that has to do with the problem I'm having is closed for posting. (or so it appears) I have two 16 gig iPod touches. Both are running 1.1.4 and have been jailbroken with iLiberty+. One is fine but the other one (my husband's) has repeatedly had a problem. When he syncs it on his computer (I had to do the restore + jailbreak on mine because his usb is not 2.0) the capacity bar turns orange and fills up with other. His iTunes is also purple (the screen) and black down the side where the playlists are. This has happened twice. We had been running 1.1.2 (jailbroken) since February with no problems and then he had this issue mentioned above. I had to do a forced restore and start from scratch. Now it has happened again. Once it does then his iTunes screen is white again and all looks well. So I am confused and clueless as to what the real problem is. So...two questions: #1 does a forced restore really wipe out everything on the touch? And I mean everything. Because I have read confusing posts which say it does not and there are files still remaining? I don't get it. #2 is the problem with the touch or is his iTunes corrupted. And if the iTunes is corrupted does it need to be completely wiped off his machine (including old libraries, etc.) My Touch is fine and my iTunes is fine and so I guess what we are trying to determine is if he has a bad Touch or bad iTunes. BTW he is running iTunes 8. I am not opposed to restoring again and upgrading to the latest Touch firmware and iTunes and having a factory unit. He can buy the apps. That would be fine but if he continues to have the same problem I am assuming he would lose them? Cause then obviously his iTunes is really messed up. I have read at length that jailbreaking cannot ruin an ipod touch. Also, that forced restore makes them good as new. Please tell me this is true and that his problem can be solved by a new iTunes on his other computer that has usb 2.0. Any help would be ver much appreciated!
