    Uninstall itunes, install itunes 7.5, download the 1.1.4 ipsw, go to DFU, then shift+click restore.

    The best way is to find a computer that has never been introduced to iTunes, and install either iTunes 7.5 or 7.6 (7.5 is recommended)...

    Its actually annoying me so much, I uninstalled 7.7, I did a search for itunes, deleted all the itunes things, THEN i installed 7.5, adn when i plug it, it says Itunes does now have the software for your ipod...

    It wont regonize it either way, DFU mode or not.

    hey mate erm. i use a mac for my ipod touch
    im guessing this is not the way to go
    it has all my music and itunes 7.7

    i also have a windows pc that has never been introduced to itunes
    and i can easily download 7.5

    if i downgrade will the upgrade for 2.0 still be charged
    can i switch to mac and re-upload all my music without having the upgrade for 2.0?

    thanks ><

    I was in the same boat you are in...

    Let me start off by saying, yes you will still be charged, but now you own your .ipsw so you can always go back to the official 2.0 anytime you want...


    And yes you can... Just plug in your ipod touch to your mac and ignore the upgrade messages... I am sure it will check for updates... and your set

    And hey, if I were you I would fire up iLiberty+ or PwnageTool and jailbreak it

    thanks so much

    i will use the http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=76884
    thread to help me downgrade

    is that all good?
    im actually no good with computers

    so overall i plan to downgrade using windows and itunes 7.5
    restore my ipod using the mac

    and hopefully if at all i decide to upgrade to 2.0 once again
    then i simply click update? with no additional fee?

    am i right?
    sorry
    and thankyouuu


    EDIT: is there any logic in keeping 2.0 until a hack is found that allows you to use both the installer and 2.0 features?

    Personally, I would go back to 1.1.4 and hold there until the dev team releases Pwnage 2.0...

    Yup, your plan should work just fine... iTunes 7.5, Windows, DFU mode + Shift/Restore, and select the 1.1.4 restore...

    Post if you have any problems...
