So I have an iPod Touch first gen (running version 3 of os) that won't restore using iTunes. I tried all the tricks found online to get it to restore. It gets to the final stages of the status bar on the Touch and then comes up with one of 6 error messages- all of which don't tell me anything as the codes point to doing it with a PC. (I have tried restoring with two diff. macs- and it has always been synced with a mac.) I have tried several usb cables too. Do you think I might be able to jailbreak it successfully? I called Apple and they said it might be hardware related since it stops at the moment when the OS is being loaded on the Touch. thoughts? I would just buy a new one but my wife might lose her job soon so I am holding off of purchases for the moment. thanks!
