    Yesterday I jail-broke my ipod touch 16 GB 1.1.4 with Ziphone 2.6, everything worked fine until today. It just started working really slow, it was getting stuck several times so I kept restarting it. Then it got stuck more frecuently, so I restored it with itunes 1.1.4. After that, the ipod just showed the connect to itunes sign, but when I connected it to itunes again this message appeared: "iTunes could not connect to the iPhone "" because an unknown error occurred (0xE8000001)." and the ipod kept displaying the same connect to itunes sign. Then I ran ziphone 2.6 and tried to jailbreak it again but this message appeared on the output log:

    "Started process ziphone.exe with argument: -Z I
    ZiPhone v2.6b by Zibri. http://www.ziphone.org
    Source code available at: http://www.ziphone.org

    Loading zibri.dat.
    Searching for iPod...
    Entering recovery mode.
    Failed: (0) AMDeviceConnect failed.
    Could not connect to lockdown port"

    And the ipod still displays the same icon. What can I do??? Please help me!

    if u are on iPod touch 16gb, don't trust ziphone!

    Hey! I guess u made the wrong choice with ziphone jailbreak. to solve your prob, restore your ipod to 1.1.1 (if your firmware version "out of the box" was 1.1.1). jailbreak from there. (I suggest you stay with 1.1.3 firmware because it's relatively the same as 1.1.4. wait for the v2.0 instead which i believe will be out soon)

    If you bought the latest touch, then you have to downgrade it to 1.1.1 using a method created by ipodtouchmaster. search the web and you'll find instruction how to do this. and word of advice, don't use ziphone! they are for iPhones! ciao!

    Not true. 2.6b is for Phones and Touches. Go to his site and check it out.

    You are the only one then. Try this- attach the Touch to your machine. Open Ziphone 2.6b. Select - Mode in the Menu and select - Restart in DFU mode. Now - please restore to a clean 1.1.4 Apple Touch. NOW quit iTunes and open Ziphone and Select - Jailbreak iTouch(I wish he would change that).

    You should be good to go.

    unplug it when ur in recovery mode.

    plug ur ipod into itunes

    hold down the home button and the power button till it turns off

    leaving ur finger on the home button take ur other finger off the power button.

    ur ipod will pop up on itunes

    restore ur ipod but do not back it up

    set up ur ipod as a new ipod

    it should be back to normal!!!!!!!!:apple::apple::):D

    I know you said it, but you MUST,
    RESTORE
    QUIT ITUNES
    then have a go, if needed, clean nvram (with ziphone)
    Yeah, and on top of that, apparently we need spelling lessons around here
    um, try "you are"

    I'm from the same generation, but for texts, and e-mails, and Im's i always check my spelling, and grammar (to an extent, enough to be passable english)

    sorry, pete4444444, its not you, i just used at an example...
