    A quick question, I am really hating iOS7 and want to roll back to iOS6...

    I hate the new look.
    I hate the animations.
    And I really hate the syncing issues with my iTunes Library.

    I can't seem to sync more than 10% of my entire iTunes library (space is now issue, it's a 64GB touch and my library is around the 15GB mark), all I get is the cloud download icon which has pretty much killed all of my playlists.

    I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction for rolling back to iOS6 on a current generation iPod touch.

    I would really appreciate the help. :cool:

    You can't. Apple isn't signing iOS 6 anymore.

    Thank you for the reply... I was *hoping* there may be a way to roll back to iOS6 otherwise it looks like I'm going to get my old iPod Classic out :rolleyes:

    Sounds like perhaps iTunes Match has taken over? See if iTunes Match is enabled on your iPod, and if it is, switch it off. That should bring back the sync behavior you were used to

    Thanks, that was kind of my initial thoughts as well. I've tried toggling the match on/off but is make no difference...

    Playback on video content is horrid, it looks as though its framing at 3-7fps as well.

    that sucks dude
    i love ios7 everything works great for me
    you should try to clean restoring your itouch and just start over without a back up
    fixed all the problems i had

    but to answer your question you cant go back

    I've jailbroken it, this seems to fix 90% of the issues... Though I am still a little puzzled with some of the playback and iTunes library.

    Didn't know there was a JB available for iOS 7?

    That's a scam and not an actual jailbreak.

    Thanks for the heads up. I did do a complete wipe before anything.... Just one of those weeks I guess :(

    Back to iOS7 I guess...

    I'm curious, if it's fake, how did it fix 90% of your issues?

    It looked like it reset and wiped the iPod, cleared all the data on it...

    Anyways I've booked in to see an Apple Genius this Sunday, I probably should have done this first instead of getting frustrated after the install not going smooth or as expected :(
