    Hello guys, yesterday I tried restoring my iPod 3G to factory settings, (restoring to 5.1) everything went well until the "restoring iPod software" phase got stuck.

    I tried restoring on a PC it didn't work, I tried putting my iPod in DFU mode it didn't work either.

    I gave it too much time but it won´t proceed… please help.

    UPDATE: It turned out the firmware bundle was corrupt, I redownloaded the 5.1 firmware right through iTunes and restored my iPod on my friend's Macbook Air, it worked like a charm, thanks for helping.

    I tried, it didn't work.
    Do you think it's a firmware bundle problem?

    If you are using a custom firmware, probably yes.

    Try going to felixbruns.de
    Download the ipsw for your ipod
    And Shift+Restore in iTunes and reflash with the one you downloaded from felixbruns.

    Also might be an Apple Server issue too. Update iTunes, try a different USB cable

    Hey, my firmware is already downloaded from felixbruns.de
    I tried different USB cables, different laptop… it's not working
    PS: My firmware is not customised, I´m not jailbreaking

    May be a hardware problem on the iPod then. It should not be like that
