    It um, seems I have a problem.

    My 1.1.1 hacked iPod Touch had a few iPhone Apps on, Summer board and that's about it really.

    I thought I'd put some more music on, however connecting my iPod to my computer was proving difficult. It was charging my iPod, but not syncing with iTunes in any of my MacBook Pro's USB ports - very strange.

    I reset the settings, with no progress, then did a full erase content and reset - should be like a brand new iPod, correct?

    It's left my hacked applications still on. I've got no content but can't put it back to the way it way. Obviously the Apple Store can't do much as it's hacked now so I need to get it back to it's original state.

    Any ideas?

    Reset Menu:

    What's left once it's done:

    i think the reset in the settings on the ipod itself is just for changing it back to default settings. if u want to erase everything on ur ipod, try restoring with itunes. have u tried rebooting ur ipod and then trying to connect it to ur comp? does it have low battery life? maybe let it charge for a little while.

    thats right , you actually have to restore the data from iTunes

    is there disk mode on the ipod touch like the other ipods have?(im thinking there isnt, because u cant use the touch as a disk drive)

    u could also try restore mode .

    Thanks for the help.

    Googled recovery move (Hold down menu button while connecting to itunes) and it mounted in to itunes.


    Downgrading to 1.1.3 to see what it's like. Now I've just got to see whether it's worth $20 to get the Apps back, or whether there's another source of getting them.

    Surely it should just be an update file added to iTunes?

    Word of warning, once you're at 1.1.3 there is no way to downgrade the firmware to 1.1.1 if you decide you want to jailbreak again.
