    I'm confused… are you trying to restore the touch with the iPhone firmware or is iTunes trying to restore the touch with the iPhone firmware?

    If it's the former, you can't.

    If it's the latter, time to take it to a Genius.

    I logged in just to tell you guys that I'm tired of people making sarcastic remarks and not giving any feedback to the subject at all. I, personally don't like it being called the iTouch either, but when people like you come around thinking you are so smart and only make a remark of how the person phrases it, it pisses me off. Thanks for making my day.

    And sorry I can't give feedback myself, as I don't own an iPod Touch yet.

    Sorry, Master. We will try harder to read your mind next time.
    BTW, the iTouch is a different electronic device all together. Though it is obvious that device isn't being discussed, it would still be beneficial to be accurate. iPT is NOT hard to type.

    Kettle, I believe you are smoking pot.

    Never tried it, never will.

    EDIT: We're in the iPod Touch forum anyway. You don't need to be accurate in the way you say iPod Touch. iPT, iTouch, doesn't matter. Now if you say something random like W753iPT, then you would probably need to clarify. I don't like the word iPod Touch, either, but people don't need to give crap about it. Go ahead and make your occasional jokes, but don't reply to thread if that's all you're going to contribute.

    At this point, I think you have two choices:
    1. Find a 1.1.4 or 1.1.5 IPOD TOUCH ipsw download file (download it in Firefox because Safari will mess it up), and plug in your iPod. Then, click restore while holding shift (Windows) or option (Mac) and point iTunes to the correct ipsw. If this fails, go to option 2.
    2. Take it to a Genius.

    And to the rest of you, who cares what you call it, we all know what it is. So quit your bickering and help the poor guy.
