    After using Ziphone to JB it to 1.1.4. It won't sync. I was looking thru the search and didn't find anything. Is there something I need to do to fix this?

    A game or 2. I tried rebooting pc and ipod, and unplugging it. Doesn't seem to want to sync.

    I just uninstalled the 2 games, now it's just a freshly restored jailbroken Ipod.

    This is what I did:
    I followed the Ziphone instructions, where I updated the itunes firmware to 1.14, then I opened the Ziphone program, did the JB process, it rebooted and it was successful. I then rebooted my computer, and found itunes not recognizing it and not syncing. It is just a restored JB ipod now, nothing on it.

    Does it recognize it if it's in restore mode?

    this is the same thing that happened to me, i did the same thing and itunes cant sync. I'm also afraid to restore because if that doesn't fix it then i have a $400 dollar paper weight. Any help?

    My ipod's not recognized even in restore mode. I always get the message saying i need to reinstall itunes because the right program's not been installed but I've reinstalled it so many times now and nothing. My works pc can see it so it can't be the jailbreak.
    I've deleted everything to do with itunes and quicktime then reinstalled it and still that same error message

    Uninstall then reinstall iTunes. Make sure you delete everything that has to do with iTunes. Back up all your media music video all that good stuff. Then reinstall. It should do the trick.

    This happend to me. Nothing would find my ipods. After I did this it was full speed ahead.
    I think it has something to do with iTunes picking it up in the middle of the ziphone prosses.
    At least for me iTunes would pick it up as soon as ziphone put it in recovery to start the prosses.

    thanks anyway

    Oh, it also started as soon as I'd upgraded to 1.1.4 official from iTunes. I'm hating this now, I have an ipod with no content on it, it's not even jailbroken yet as the last jailbreak kept freezing
