I have an 1st Gen iPod touch 4GB - bought it the first week they were out but haven't used it much since I got my iPhone 3G last year at launch. (It's been more or less unused for the last 8 months) A friend wanted to buy the touch off me so I decided to download the latest updates. During the update process, something screws up, and now it's in restore mode. Everytime I try to restore the touch, it stalls out and gives me error 14. Will note that the touch has never been jailbroken or anything. Now before anyone says it, I've seen the Apple Support doc on error messages and I've tried pretty much everything on that list: - Deleted and redownloaded the firmware update - restarted iTunes / restarted Mac - tried restoring from both Windows XP and Windows 7 Beta. (Had to go out of my way to download iTunes and the firmware update for both.) - tried different computers / different USB ports / different USB cables - tried using a Guest Account / created a new user account just to try The only thing I haven't tried is taking it into Apple, but since the touch is well past the 1 year warranty, I'm not about to spend God knows how much money they want to fix this thing when I barely use it now. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I've thought about doing a jailbreak, but it would have to be in order to get legit firmware onto the thing. My friend isn't tech savvy at all and I don't want her to have to deal with anything other than idiot-proof iTunes. Very annoyed at my $300 paperweight right about now. Thanks for any help.
