    Hi, sorry this is my first post. Yes I have searched for an answer to this question and found nothing of value.

    Basically when I try restoring to my custom firmware in DFU mode, from a clean 2.0, iTunes tries to 'phone home' and contact an update server. The problem is I use mobile broadband and iTunes seems to kill the connection everytime it is opened. Therefore I have no access to the iTunes store and cannot restore from DFU.

    Does anybody have any ideas as to how to restore from iTunes without an internet connection, or how to stop it from killing the connection.

    iTunes 7.7
    iPod Touch 16gb
    3 UK 15gb HSDPA - Huawei E160 USB Modem
    Vista, XP Home, Hardy Heron
