    Well I accidently installed a iphone firmware onto my ipod touch. and Now it seems doomed. I go into itunes and it recognizes it as an iphone and it won't let me restore I keep getting errors. Is there any way I can restore it?

    Try a force restore or DFU mode. That has killed a few ipods!

    DFU:

    Connect to iTunes. Hold Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the iPod disappears from iTunes. Release the Sleep/Wake button, but continue to press the Home button. A box will appear telling you to restore.

    DFU won't work I've been trying it all day.
    How do you force restore?
    And thank you for your help

    I PWNED MY IPHONE/IPOD WITH THE WRONG FIRMWARE! ITUNES SAYS MY IPHONE IS AN IPOD (or vice versa) WHAT CAN I DO?

    MY PHONE WON'T TURN ON! ITS REBOOTING CONSTANTLY! I HAVE CONSTANTLY SCROLLING TEXT! and ANY OTHER ISSUE WHERE PHONE IS NON RESPONSIVE

    You can fix this!

    Put your phone into DFU mode. You can do this by pressing and holding the sleep and home button for 10 seconds WHILST THE USB CABLE IS CONNECTED AND ITUNES RUNNING from when the Apple logo appears until it dissapears and then KEEP holding the home button but let go of the sleep button - the screen will stay off but iTunes will recognise the phone.

    If you have trouble getting DFU mode use Independence/ iLiberty+ to put your phone into DFU mode!

    If your phone is not recognised by Independence/ iLiberty+ you will have to manually put it in DFU - this CAN be tricky to time right but eventually you WILL get it!

    Restore to apple original firmware and you can start over again!


    I think that's what you need to do.
