    when you put your iPod into recovery mode does you iPod have a blank scren?

    Follow these steps EXACTLY!


    And no it's not like the normal way of putting your IPT into restore mode.
    When he says "home screen", he means the screen with all the icons.

    Edit: It works on both MAC and Windows.

    If its not on a blank screen while in recovery mode then thats the problem.
    To get it into recovery mode with a blank screen so that itunes can downgrade it you need to have your ipod connected to itunes and make sure you turn on your speakers so you can hear when it connects and disconnects.
    Hold down power and home button until ipod disconnects then let go of the power button while still holding down the home button. When the ipod re connects to itunes let go of the home button and the ipod should be blank while itunes recognizes the ipod in recovery mode. Then do the downgrade and you should have no problem. Hope this Helps!
