Hi all. I've got an ipod 2G with a version 2 firmware on it. I generated a custom firmware from a 2.2.1 package using quickfreedom, via itunes 1.7.6 on winXP. I then put the ipod into DFU mode and attempted to restore with the custom package. Initially, the restore failed with an "error 6". I tried a few more times, all with the same result. I rebuilt the firmware and tried again. Same result. I rebuilt the firmware and tried again on another computer - an old 2004 macbook. This time the process failed with an error 21. I then went back to the windows machine and uninstalled iTunes, and removes all vestiges of it from the system. I then installed iTunes 8 and tried again. This time it fails with an error 1604. At this point, I'd be happy to just get the ipod working again as it was before. If I reboot, the ipod goes into recovery mode. How can I get the ipod out of recovery mode, without installing new firmware ? Thanks.
