    Hi All

    I have a Jailbroken 2G Ipod touch running 3.1.2. I had it jailbroken about 12 months ago and never had any issues downloading or updating Apps from Itunes store or Cydia. Recently I went into Cydia and it did all the usual updating bit. It then asked if I wanted to update some special code that is in my ipod which Itunes uses to recognise it. I said yes and ever since then I have not been able to download of update any Itunes Apps. It just sits there saying loading

    Anybody ideas how to fix this

    Regards

    Special Code??? weird...

    Try:
    -Reinstalling iTunes
    -Changing the password for your account

    Is your account linked to a credit card by any chance?

    thanks for the reply

    Yep it is a cc account. I have checked that there has been no unauthorised activity on my cc. Also I did try reseting my pass word. Do not want to do a restore as I do not want to lose it being jail broken

    Regards

    I have found out what this special code is. It is ECID SHSH which I opted to save to Cydia, so this should not be the reason I now can not download Apps from iTunes.

    Will I lose my Jailbreak if I do a restore?

    it may be too late to restore, they will not let you restore on the same firmware i dont think. Im pretty sure they make you update. You might be able to shift restore to 4.0 and use jailbreakme. But if you want 3.1.3 its too late unless you have your shsh files saved.

    Try COMPLETELY reinstalling iTunes in the latest version.
    assuming you have a pc...
    Go to control panel, and uninstall itunes, then mobile device, and pretty much everything you can that relates to iTunes, there should be like 4 things

    Sorry if this doesnt help as i am only using my past experiences.

    please explain in more detail where and what you are downloading.

    are you downloading from your comp, or ipod?

    by the way if you restore you will have to rejailbreak, but thats not a problem as long as you dont get the new patch for the 4.0 firmware. i think its like 4.0.2

    Thanks for the advise

    To put more meat on the bones.
    Ipod touch 2G runing 3.2.2 - SHSH files saved to cydia
    a) My PC runing Win 7.
    b) I have not upgraded to the latest version of itunes on my PC as I was told it was quite restrictive
    c) I down load Apps to both my PC and ipod touch but mainly to my ipod
    d) I seem to be able to log into my itunes account from my PC. I will check tonight if I can still download APS
    e) When I try to upgrade Apps on my Ipod it just sits there
    saying "loading"
    f) When i try to download Apps on my ipod the default icon appears ans just says waiting
    g) When I go to Store under settings I can see my "account name" but when i try to view my account, it says "Sign In required" if I push con tinue it just sits says "loading"

    If I do need to re jailbreak, what is the safest way

    Regards

    Ian
