Alright guys I've tried the following method: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42102 And i have read this: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55285 This where I got: iTouch 2G I got into DFU mode fine iTunes recognizes its in recovery mode So I try to click restore using the fresh firmware I downloaded from the apple site. (while holding shift) "ERROR 1618 or Error 9" The ipod seems to just shutdown partway through. Then it tried to just click restore without holding down shift to use the firmware I already have. iTunes cannot find the firmware for this ipod Please update iTunes. History of the ipod itself Jailbroken 24 hours ago, bought around 3 days ago. Ipod mysteriously crashes while switching to a theme I had once used. What should I do? Try to recover using other methods or use the 3year apple warranty if thats possible with whats on it.
