Thanks in advance fellas, this one is quite tricky. 1st Generation iPod Touch seems to be truly corrupted. I can get into restore mode no problem. iTunes detects it as needing to be restored however it will not restore no matter what i do. I tried restoring on an Macbook, a PC, a new account on PC, new USB cord, different USB plugs.. all no go. Keep getting the dreaded 1603 error. Tried iReb but this won't even work either. Are there ANY programs out there to wipe my ipod touch completely and then try to do a restore on iTunes? When iTunes detects that i need to restore my model, firmware, etc are all N/A. I've pretty much tried everything out there to get rid of the 1603 error during restore but nothing works so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
