    My friend recently sent me the iPhone 3.0 OS Beta firmware. After putting it on the iPod, I received a notice when trying to sync my iPod that I needed to register, and pay $99.00 for the SDK. Since I said forget that, I decided to restore my iPod. I put it in recovery mode, and went to restore. iTunes says that it can't restore the iPod After downloading the 2.2 firmware and trying to restore the iPod with that, it still wont work. My iPod is still in recovery mode? I have manually tried to get it out but that isn't working. When it says connect to iTunes, I hold down Sleep and Home until the Apple sign shows. Then I let go of Sleep (like I should to get out of recovery) and I am brought back to the Connect to iTunes screen, instead of getting out of recovery mode....

    Can someone please help me on how to fix my iPod?

    My iTunes is up to date and i am running Windows Vista on a PC :apple:

    To get your iPod out of recovery mode, Hold down the power button and home button till the boot logo pops up. (the screen should go black in between) Then let go of the home button and hold the home button for 5 more seconds then let go, and then let it start up and it should take you back to the home screen.
