    Hello everyone,

    I bought a couple of ipod nano's on ebay that have had their firmware changed. The guy says he changed it so that the firmware is drag and drop, "to avoid the hassle of itunes" (*makes me cringe as I read*). I'm wondering, is there a way to revert the firmware back to what was original on the ipod nanos? I mean lets say it's completely corrupted. Can I wipe the firmware clean and reset it? Is there a possibility that these ipods cannot be restored?

    Have you tried to plug them into itunes and click restore?

    man how did he do that? I want that with my ipod. Then again my ipod is running rockbox which makes it drag and drop so to speak. So if he did let say did install rockbox firmware go to and download the pdf file for the Nano and there should be a section on un-installing their software.
