    Hey guys, I'm trying to restore a jailbroken ipod back to 2.2.1 but whenever I do it gets an error in itunes after the "preparing to restore" message. I just tried to load the original firmware with shift click. How do I get it back to normal?
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    could it possibly be because i'm using itunes 8.2? i'll try restoring with 8.1...

    solution: i reinstalled itunes 8.1 and restored it. it didn't prevent me from loading my original 2.2.1 firmware. the newest version of itunes must have some kind of added security or something because i've restored a lot of times before and that never happened to me.

    Your iTunes version shouldn't matter.

    Is it in DFU Mode when you shift restore?
