Re: no recovery no firmware... nothing works with my ipod

Me too! The only thing that the Sansa left is the blue ring. I formatted the e250 and the software all gone not even in recovery mode. Is anybody know how to re-install it from the bottom?

Wifi grey area

Here is a way that solved the problem for me.
Downgrade the ipod touch to firmware 1.1.4. You have to put your ipod into DFU mode ('not recovery mode) and you have to have an itunes version that supports this old firmware. 7.5 oder 7.7 i think.
to load your own firmware you simply hold the shift-button while you push the restore button.

After you have firmware 1.1.4 on your ipod touch, download the jailbreaker "Ziphone". This programm has the option to fix the "no Wifi" problem. Look in the advanced options.
In my case, this was the only thing that solved the problem. I tried restoring it often but nothing worked.
After Ziphone fixed your Problem, you can update the Touch to the latest firmware. Wifi was still working, at least for me

Ipod touch v2 stuck at itunes connect

your ipod was jailbroken and now it is not.
no worries, go to

Download the quickpwn software and jailbreak your ipod.
It's pretty easy,

but first what I would do, is download the itouch firmware version you want to restore to.
the file name will be something like this: iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw

Put your ipod in DFU mode:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
Your iPod will reboot.
Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
You may see the screen go blank or not.
Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
Restore it by pressing Restore and Shift at the same time. This will allow you to select the ipod firmware you downloaded.
Restore it and then do your jailbreak.
It will ask for the same firmware version you just restored to.
find it on your computer and do the J/B
I have the firmware on my computer, shoot me an email and i will send it,just let me know if you have a 1st Gen or 2nd Gen

If this post helps you please leave a vote in fixya

Ipod wont connect to computer

Try getting the official Apple firmware from iTunes(just the download from their website) and save it. Then go to the iPod and hold down the enter button and the play button until it restarts.

Ipod won't connect to computer (4gb 1st gen.)

The firmware restart combination is Select+Menu, hold until the Apple Logo appears. This should fix your problem, if it doesn't I can help you from there.

Sansa Battey

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
