    Okay, I have a first gen ipod touch, and I was running 3.0 beta 2, but I decided I want to downgrade. So I put my iPod into DFU mode, that worked fine. But when i try to resotre my ipod though iTunes, I get error -2005 about 30 seconds into the restore. I've tried restoring to 3.0, 2.2, and 2.1, and I always get the same error! Can someone please help me with this. Im using a mac right now, so could that be the problem? Please post something! I really need help!

    EDIT: Tried changing USB ports, and now i get error code (2) when I try to restore! Please help me!

    reboot your computer, then try restoring to 2.2.1. make sure you Shift + Restore if you have the FW.

    The background is purple when you use 3.0. But it's only purple sometimes, I don't know why
