    Hey everyone

    I really need your help. I have an Ipod Touch 2nd generation. My friend... who is a hardcore techie... did something "cough" to my iPod that I'd rather not mention on here. Anyways, he's on vacation.. and I accidently let my iPod die... and therefore it won't turn on again, even when charged... its "bricked" i guess.

    So I put it into DFU mode... and that was all fine and dandy. It showed up on my itunes as iPod, and said N/A for everything else (serial number.. etc). This has happened before, and I just pressed restore, and it went back to its original legal condition that I bought it in.

    So I'm trying to do that again, however, when i click restore, it says "Software for this iPod is not currently available. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes and try again"

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes at least 3 times now, and its still not working. PLEASE HELP! I'm going to vegas tomorrow and really really want and need my ipod. Thanks!

    PS. I'm asking how to restore it to original condition... not how to do anything illegal!!!

    please don't be rude, or mean... of course id love to re-JB it, but right now i just want my normal ipod back.
    thanks

    wow search for the firmware you want on google. download it and go into itunes, hold shift and click restore. search for the firmware and double click it and that should work.

    Tell your friend that theres an untethered jailbreak out now, so you can let it die all you want, called 24KPwn, he should figure it out from there
