    Ok, so i bought a ipod used, it was having wierd noises with all the music, like no quality, and distorting and wierd clicking noises in background. I turned it off, and this happens. I was told the ipod was jailbroken.

    iTunes has detected and iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes.

    The iPod "iPod" could not be restored. An unkown error occurred (3194)

    I cant turn ipod on, do nothing at all, when i turn ipod on it has the usb cord pointing to itunes. Ive looked everywhere, if someone could help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    He has a tethered jailbreak.

    Until he at least rejailbreaks and makes sure that won’t work, he doesn’t need to try anything else.

    If that doesn’t work, the next step is to mess with the hosts file.

    You should attempt to edit the host using the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dqh8KY2Cw1s&feature=related

    BUT before you try that, you should use recboot to get out of recovery mode and then see if you can boot up to anything. IF you boot up, then attempt to go into DFU mode by using this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcwjJ66U6t8 Then restore.

    IF that does not work, you are going to have to edit the hosts file.
