    I used winpwn with a iPhone firmware instead of an iPod one (by mistake) and now i'm getting no display at all!!! iTunes does recgonize it but only as an iphone, I can successfully get it into DFU mode but ANY type of restoring gives me an error, any ideas!?
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    I Just used AutoDown now it's saying "Waiting for iPod" but not doing anything, PLEASE Any help would be appeciated I wanna try out 2.0!

    Thanks

    Use ZiPhone to boot it back into normal mode...other wise just try a normal restore....or hold home and power button for 10 sec then let go of power and keep holding home till restore logo comes up

    I know I know, It was a dumb mistake.

    I tried all modes in ZiPhone, how long is factory warranty from apple? ANd is there nothing else I can do?

    Someone had the same (but opposite, iPod firmware on iPhone) problem and eventually got it fixed but required a mac AND a pc, all I have is a PC. Has there any advancements on this problem since then?

    The problem is that its VERY diffucult to downgrade from 2.0 on an iPhone let alone an iPod touch which now thinks its an iPhone. So fresh from the modmyiphone thread:

    Good luck let us know how it goes

    I made a mistake in what I said earlier, I actually used WinPwn to pwn mine with the iPod 1.1.4 firmware, but then installed the iPhone firmware 2.0 using Shift-click restore method, am I still screwed? thanks.
