    Now before you start laughing at me because I am the one seeking help I just want you to know I have exausted all my ideas on how to fix this problem. knowing we have heaps of experts in the forum I am hoping some one out there can fix my ipod touch so my lovely partner can enjoy it again

    I have an ipod touch 2nd generation that is unlocked and has been working fine. The ipod touch was given to my partners daughter whom changed users on my Macbook and proceeded to restore it.

    Restored failed:confused: and is now in permanent recovery mode with black screen with error 1600 showing every time we try. Further more the Mac book with Itunes cannot identify the serial number or specs of the ipod

    I have tried to sort issue on a PC with latest itunes down load with out sucess. Also searched the web and found nothing that really answers the question except they talk about jail breaking the ipod ???? I want it back to normal.

    The equipement i have at home is:
    Ipod Touch 2
    Macbook 2008 with snow leopard os
    itunes latest version
    I have access to PC's as I sell them where I am employed
    So is there any one out there whom can help PLEASE

    Thanks Col

    Maybe it's time to upgrade! I also have a 2nd gen iPod Touch and have been considering an upgrade. As good as the iPad is, I still can't put it in my shirt pocket when I cut grass. I have 3 acres and I need a lot of music!

    You tried a hard reset? (holding home and power button until it starts up. 20 to 30 seconds)

    Have you tried to enter DFU mode and re-jailbreak the iPod?
