Hello guys and, maybe, girls, I have some problems with downgrading my new 8gb 2G I touch I bought last week at the apple store. Yes, I believe there is something that apple did that made the new 8 Gb 2G I touches different from the older 8 GB 2G I touches. For some reason, I always get the error 1601 whenever I try to restore my I touch, and have read most of forums about downgrading that I know how to do DFU--I'm sure enough I have done it many times while trying out all the tutorials and watching youtube videos. I never got the white screen, signifying I have not completed the restore process;I only recieved the long, arduous wait of the "preparing to restore". I have read a past post that said something about firmware problems with downgrading the new 8gb 2G I touch. I just want help and bring this up for us little guys who bought it. ------------------double post merged------------------Oh, one more thing, I am trying to downgrade to 3.0 firmware.
