Thread: IPod Touch Stuck in "Connect to iTunes" Screen. Not detected by iTunes?

    Default IPod Touch Stuck in "Connect to iTunes" Screen. Not detected by iTunes?
    Alright so I had iPod Touch 2nd Gen running OS 3.0 jailbroken. And it sucked. So I wanted to downgrade it to 2.2.1 OS. I tried restoring it, and it said it would restore it back to 3.0. So I said, **** you I want 2.2.1. So I downloaded 2.2.1 ipsw and tried shift restoring, and it said something like an error has occured. And my iPod was stuck on the screen that has a picture of a cord pointing towards iTunes. So what I did was delete iTunes, and install a lower version, and try updating that ways, well now my PC doesn't recognize my ipod. I tried different USB ports, and I have the most updated version, and nothing.

    I kept trying to put my iPod into DFU mode, but now its just in a black screen, not even showing the screen. Idk what to do.. Any suggestions?

    Update to the latest version of iTunes, that should see it. Then restore to 3.0, then downgrade itunes again and restore from the 2.2.1 IPSW. if it happens again get a new IPSW.

    The problem is no matter what I do I can't get the computer to read the iPod. It's the latest iTunes because I downloaded it straight off their website after uninstalling it and deleting everything with "iTunes" in it.

    How about other computers or other programs like disk aid or floola?

    Disk aid and foola are just applications that recognize ipods for various reasons, if your JB you should prob have disk aid anyway Disk Mode for your iPhone or iPod Touch ? - Download DiskAid for PC Windows and Mac OSX

    and as for the other computer, use a friends or go to the apple store with an ipod cord and use one of theirs; they cant stop you I've done it
