So here's the thing. I have an iPod touch 4th gen and was using iOS5b7. When the final iOS 5 came out I downloaded the IPSW and happily openned iTunes to restore it BUT I got stuck with a 1611 error. I tried it in all the usb ports on my laptop, with different cables, everytime the same error. I use Windows 7 x64. So I also tried on a Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard and still got the same error. So I gave up trying to update to iOS 5 and got out of recovery mode by jailbreaking with redsn0w, and I was back to iOS5b7. I had to do the 'Just Boot' since it was tethered, but this time... I got stuck in the following screen (image attached) I tried other versions of redsn0w, even tried the Fixrecovery on http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/ and all lead me to that same screen. So can anyone help me? Or is my iPod forever bricked? tl;dr I tried jailbreaking my iPod touch and got stuck in the attached screen, and yes, I tried again and when I try to restore I get error 1611.
