    ok im trying to jailbreak an ipod touch that is currently 2.1 firmware and iTunes is up to date

    im trying to upgrade to 2.2 firmware before i jailbreak it

    the problem is...when i click shift and restore and select the 2.2 firmware it begins extracting the software but then i get an error message saying

    "The iPod 'iPod' could not be restored. An unknown error occured (5)."

    error 5 means you are using a corrupt or incorrect firmware

    make sure you are using IPOD TOUCH firmware and make sure it is for the correct generation

    iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw <-- first gen
    iPod2,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw <--- second gen

    for example..

    I had this same problem the other day coming from 2.0. thehitman has the correct answer; Make sure it says iPod; not iPhone.
