My iPod touch 2G 2.2.1 was having problems with crashing and so I decided to restore it. I put it in DFU mode and shift-clicked restore and loaded the firmware. It finishes up until Preparing iPod for Restore, and then I get the 1601 error. I've tried many tutorials. And it goes and stays on a white screen when preparing and doesn't get off. I have to reboot but it just stays at the Apple. I have to firmware on because of this. Can anyone tell me what to do? Should I let it charge for a while and then do it? This all happened because of Supreme Preferences 3.0. Thanks for any help.
