    Need Help with a Permanent Jailbreak

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Hey guys i decided to buy the new update(2.0) and was very excited about it, the update downloaded and it was being installed just fine, but in the middle of the process it said the recovery failed and an error (6) message popped out. Before buying the update the ipod was running on 1.1.4 JB through Ziphone. So I searched thoroughly in lots of forums(including this one) and even apple's support page but the only useful thing i could find was iDemocracy, which tells u the status of ur ipod and thats when i realized i have a big problem, even after restoring my ipod several times (10 as of now) it still says mi ipod is Jailbroken but the installer app doesnt show on the screen at all.

    here are the things ive tried according to the things ive read:

    -Restarted computer
    -Different usb port
    -Restore ipod on different computer
    -Restore on DFU mode
    -Used the Refurbish option in iDemocracy
    -Restored to different FWs (from 1.1.1 to 1.1.4)
    -Normal Recovery Mode

    I was wondering if any of u guys could help me, every bit of help is appreciated.
    I would much appreciate if u could tell me how to completely remove the Jailbreak, since i paid for the update i wanna use it and go legit with the apps.
    Thnx in advance

    i think if it is jailbroken, you could connect to the ipod via SSH and copy over the installer.app.

    I wouldn't recommend going around erasing random files... Have you tried restoring using a different computer? Good luck!

    so let me get this straight, you want to remove the jailbreak and restore normally?

    Does it look likes it jailbroken because then you can send it in to apple saying I get this error message when trying to update?
