    Since a lot of people are having troubles and nobody can help out 1G users, I'm sorry but dfu>sh*t+restore does not always work guys

    . Here's my guide, I'm one of the 1G users that couldn't get it to work, this does work. It works for 3G phone and 1G phone also.

    Uninstall itunes 8.2 and install this. http://www.oldapps.com/itunes.php
    When trying to open itunes if you get this error, "The files Itunes library itl cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of Itunes" go into my documents, my music, itunes and delete the itunes library file. Now download 2.02 firmware from http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ and save it to your desktop. Now download winpwn http://depositfiles.com/en/files/7599071 and install that. Open up winpwn click ipod or iphone and click X on everything unless it asks you if you would like to find the 2.02 firmware if so then click yes and find that firmware. It will ask you if you would like instructions to put into DFU mode click no, now follow the instructions it gives you it will make you put your ipod into a whitescreen, when your ipod is in a white screen close winpwn, open up itunes and hold shift and click restore and find your 2.2.1 firmware and bam it should restore.

    Sticky please

    I used iTunes 8.2 and it worked fine.
    You just gotta DFU and shift+restore on a clean 2.2.1 firmware.
