Sometime yesterday I managed to get my Touch into DFU mode. I didn't know this at first, I was just starring at a black and lifeless iPod, and just assumed I had royally owned it. But after a night of googling, searching, browsing, downloading and hair-pulling I find myself here, no closer or further from solving the recurring Error 1604 that will no doubt forever be etched in my subconscious. Here's what I do know: It's not my computer or my itunes, as I've tried it on a different computer, with a different version of itunes, and a different connection cord, to the same effect. I've tried shutting down my comp. I've tried a ton of combinations involving holding down the sleep and/or home key before, during and after connecting the iPod. I've tried the instructions outlined here (bottom post) using iPhuc, to no avail. I've used ZiPhone to ensure my phone is actually in DFU mode, and it is. When I try and SHIFT restore to an older version I still get a momentary flash of white on my ipod, but an error (5, 6, 20, 50, 2000, i've seen em all) keeps coming back. My ipod was charging all night, so that shouldnt be an issue. The only real lead I can give is that I'm a still a bit confused about downgrading through winpwn. I have winpwn 188.8.131.52 and it noticably differs from 184.108.40.206 because I have no clue how to dl Cydia through winpwn ((i'm looking @ step 9 here). Anyways, I usually prefer lurking around similar threads, and as you all know there've been a ton involving DFU, but this time I just had to ask myself.. Now please somebody save me before I stomp my iPod, give up on technology altogether and find a cave to live out my remaining days. S.O.S!
