iTunes destroyed my iPod touch today. I finally finished downloading the software update. Then when it began to update, there was an error. iTunes detected it as an iPod in recovery mode, and began to restore it. Didn't work either. No my iPod is a brick. I'm going to try to restore it a few more times, or I'll have to go to the Genius Bar. Now, my Touch has no OS, and just shows the apple icon with an empty progress bar.
