Thread: iPod Touch 3g help!

    Default iPod Touch 3g help!
    Hi there

    I have an old iPod Touch 3g 64 GB that I have that thinks is an iPhone. The unit was given to me as broken and I have been trying to fix it. When I plug the device in the usb port iTunes tells me that it has found an iPhone in recovery mode. I have tried to restore with any firmware related to the iPod Touch 3g but with no success. When plugged in, with USBView I see this:
    -ipod-touch-3g-dfu-mode.jpg.
    What does it all mean?Why 2 different iProduct and which one is the correct one? How to remove the iPhone ID. Is it possible or is it a lost cause?
    I have also followed this thread Emergency SSH access using a pwn'd DFU mode RamDisk and it has been working only using 3.1.2 firmware using the standard 3.1.2 firmware.This is the result of the files upload.

    tetheredboot -i iBSS.n18ap.RELEASE.dfu -k kernelcache.release.s5l8922x -r 018-6155-014.dmg.ssh


    ERROR: The process "iTunesHelper.exe" not found.

    The only problem is that I can't create a custom firmware in order to use the SSH option. I have downloaded sn0breeze for 3.1.2 , but when I try to load the 3.1.2 ipsw file , it tells me that it is not the correct one. Any other idea how to create it? When I load the files using the instructions listed in the above link, I get this:
    -ipod-touch-3g-ssh.jpg.
    Once again? What does it mean?If I unplug the idevice and plug it back in, I get the first image again.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.





    Thank you

    Yes. If you're on windows . As for your problem, try downloading reboot and use it to force your device into recovery mode. See what happens and tell me

    Hi there

    thank you for replying. I have downloaded almost anything possible...the only problem is that when the iDevice reboots, goes back to DFU mode and just like the first JPEG. The only time it goes into recovery mode, is when I use Tiny Umbrella, but it only lasts a few seconds, maybe 30 to 40 and goes back to DFU mode....not enough time to do anything....any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Sorry I meant recboot. Also, try holding the home button and power button together for awhile and see what happens

    I tried recboot 1.3 but nothing really happend. Thru the USB view, the device was in the same DFU state and did not change. If I use Tinyumbrella and hit FixRecovery, after a few seconds it changes to iBoot recovery state, but then changes back to DFU.

    Yes I have, but because the device is recognized by iTunes as an iPhone, they do not want to touch it....no warranty...
