    I tried to restore my ipod and I get this error
    im on itunes 8.1

    with an ipod touch 2g 2.2.1 jailbroken
    trying to restore to original 2.2.1

    but it says software for this iPod is currently not available
    I tried both just clicking restore and holding shift while clicking it, I get the same error

    I can't update to 8.2 b/c I jailbreak other ppl's iPods ($10) and some of them have the iPod Touch 1G, and iTunes 8.2 disturbs QuickPwn

    did you read my post?

    I said this:

    "but it says software for this iPod is currently not available
    I tried both just clicking restore and holding shift while clicking it, I get the same error"

    In other words, I tried that, and it didn't work

    I think that apple might have put the servers down or something for the upcoming firmware. Just be patient, It should be up soon

    Did you even read my post? Go to google and search for something like "iPod touch 2G 2.2.1 firmware download". Find a download site and download it from there.

    I already have my 2.2.1 firmware downloaded on my desktop
    when I hold shift and click restore, it gives me the same error.....

    so I'm not even using their server

    I though you were on a Mac? It wouldn't be shift and click restore on a Mac, it would be Option and click restore

    Well, I just rejailbroke with redsnow .3
    then opened iTunes
    and I held shift and clicked restore, but it is still downloading the firmware for some reason..

    How does apple check if your device was jailbroken or not?

    b/c then I won't have to DFU restore once it's back to normal to remove all traces of jb

    I need to get my iPod replaced, that's why...

    "the software required for communicating with the iPod is not installed correctly, please reinstall"

    but I don't want to install iTunes 8.2

    I would say just update to iTunes 8.2, the Dev team will put out an Update that fixes the Quickpwn and PwnageTool issue soon, so if anyone wants you to Jailbreak their iPod just tell them to wait.

    ------------------double post merged------------------
    I was able to download iTunes 8.0.2 for mac right from apple's site

    I'll try that
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    dang, didnt work
    says it cant read itunes library from a newer version of iTunes

    I'll try my virtual machines
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Ok, I don't wanna use my virtual machine

    I'll install 8.2, and when I'm done restoring and syncing, I'll just uninstall it.
    then on monday, run quickpwn, and since there will be no iTunes, nothing will happen!

    is my theory correct?
