    Hi,

    My 2G Touch with 3.something was working fine but when I went to upgrade to 3.1.2 all was going fine until installation when the progress bar never budged. I tried to restore a backup and it gets stuck at the same point. I had upgraded the firmware from 2.something a couple of times without any issue. It isn't jailbroken if that makes any issue.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    try rebooting your ipod touch, and then put it in DFU mode. then restore in itunes. try that.

    No joy, still the same. It gets as far as Restoring iPod software with the progress bar on itunes moving repeatedly across as if it is just about to start installing but nothing ever happens.

    turn the sh*t off by holding "sleep + home"
    start itunes
    now hold "home" and plug in the usb ,keep holding "home" down
    itunes will find your ipod in restore mode(DFU) after 5 to 10 sec
    restore it...
    if this dosnet work
    bring it back to the store
