I have an iPod touch 2nd Gen. I went to use it and some of the icons were just white squares. I decided to restore, it gave me the following error code "The iPod "iPod" could not be restored. An unknown error code (36)". It was then stuck in DFU mode.

I read to use blackra1n to stop this process it worked and I was able to get the iPod on again but all the apps where now white squares.

I attempted a second restore by selecting erase all from the iPod itself and once again it was stuck in DFU mode so I ran blackra1n again and now the screen is black unit shows nothing. However iTunes recognizes the unit as an iPod in recovery mode but every time I restore I get error code (36).

I have a MacBook Pro running Lion with all the latest updates and iTunes 10.5

Thank you for your time

So Tiny Umbrella did something cause now my iPod is stuck on a white screen. I opened tiny umbrella the only option available was fix recovery which I clicked.

----------

Also now when i click restore iTunes says The iPod could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build.
