When you upgrade, it effectively does a "Restore" which wipes out the info that was on your hard drive.

You may (I'm not 100% certain on this) be able to get to the info using a program like Touch Copy http://www.wideanglesoftware.com/touchcopy/ (it has a free trial).

It's worth a shot if it works. Otherwise your data is gone.

Iphone scren just displays connection cord pointing up towards itunes icon


Yes, that means you must connect your iPhone to a computer and manage it over iTunes (also in your computer).
If you must restore, try this:

Go to this website: http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/

you will see there 2 selections: (1) iPod; and (2) iPhone / iPod touch.


Focus on iPhone / iPod touch and select iPhone 3G (3.1.2/7D11) or iPhone 3G S (3.1.2/7D11) - depending on whether your device is a 3G or a 3G S - and then click download. Tip: it's better if you save it on your desktop.


After the download is finished, open iTunes from your computer, and select your device. You should see the restore button there but before you click it, you must first, hold Alt (or Option) if your using a Mac, or CTRL if your using Windows, once your already holding the appropriate buttons, click restore. This will let you choose what software version you want to restore in your iPhone. So, you must select the one that you just downloaded and click restore.


Now, let me just tell you that "baking up" actually means, creating a back up. It doesn't mean that your iPhone is refusing or moving back. So when you think your iPhone is stuck, just wait a little longer, I mean, do other stuff first and return to your iPhone after 5 or more minutes. Alright...


That should do the trick. Goodluck..

How to dolad games


  1. Update your iPod Software to at least 3.xx version
    This is important as lower version of the software would not allow you to download any applications. You can do so from iTunes. Once you connect your iPod Touch or iPhone to the computer and start iTunes, it will tell you if there is a newer version of the software to upgrade. Just follow the instructions.
  2. Step 2 ** Restart your iPod/iPhone
    This step is just to reboot your iPod system to make sure the new software is in effect.
  3. Step 3 ** Download applications aka games
    Make sure your iPhone/iPod Touch is connected to the internet. On your iPod touch/iPhone home page, there will now be a link labeled: 'Apps store'. Select that link. Now, you are free to browse the many applications and games that iTunes has to offer. Some games are free while others may require you to pay. .
  4. Step 4 **Install the application aka game
    Once you have selected a game to install, tap the box that says, "free" in the right hand corner. It will then read, "Install". Tap the box again. Now, wait for the application to install on your home page.

well, a possible reason was the upgrading. When you upgraded the device, certain files might have been deleted in the process. I don't know if you can restore them, but trying to put them back again through Bluetooth, Packet Data, and any connection service could help.. hope this did help you out!

Corrupted iTouch


Update and restore error messages on iPhone and iPod touch Last Modified: April 21, 2009 Article: TS1275 Old Article: 307219 Symptoms When trying to update or restore your iPhone or iPod touch with iTunes, you may see an error message in iTunes that stops the update or restore process. You may also see the "Connect to iTunes" screen on your iPhone or iPod touch:


The error message in iTunes may also include one of the following numbers (but is not limited to): 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 13, 19, -18, -48, -50, 1002, 1011, 1013, 1601, 1602, 1603, 1604, 1608, 1609, 1611, 1612, 2003, 2004, -9808
Products Affected iPhone, iTunes 7 for Mac, iTunes 7 for Windows, iPod touch, iPhone 3G, iTunes 8 for Windows, iTunes 8 for Mac, iPod touch (2nd generation) Resolution Many restore errors can be resolved using the troubleshooting steps found in this document.
Update to the latest version of iTunes
To see if you have the latest version of iTunes, open iTunes and:
Windows: Choose Help > Check for Updates Mac: Choose iTunes > Check for Updates

Restart your computer Simply restarting the computer can clear up certain issues that could prevent iPhone or iPod touch from being restored. After restarting, try restoring the device again in iTunes.
USB Troubleshooting Connect iPhone or iPod touch to a different USB port on your Mac or Windows PC. USB 2.0 ports that are built-in to the computer are preferred over a hub. If iPhone or iPod touch were connected to USB ports on the front of the computer, try connecting them to rear USB ports. After doing this, try to restore the device in iTunes.
If this fails, Restore on a different computer. If the issue is not resolved with the above steps, try to restore on a different computer. Ensure that the computer you are restoring on has USB 2.0 ports, the latest version of iTunes, and that you are connecting directly to the computer.
Advanced Steps
Make sure you have admin access

If your still having problems estore using a new user account Create a new user account on your computer and try to restore while logged in as the new user. iTunes will download a new version of the software restore file. After creating the new user, log in to that account and open iTunes and attempt to restore to see whether the issue persists in this new user.

Windows Vista and Windows XP
From the Start menu, choose Control Panel. Open User Accounts. Select Create a new account and follow the instructions to complete the account setup process. Once the new account is created, choose Log Off from the Start menu. Log in to the newly created user account.
When a restore issue is specific to a user, it is likely due to an unusable .ipsw file. The ".ipsw" files are what iTunes uses to restore your iPod or iPhone. If those files are unusable, then try deleting them so iTunes can download a new copy of them. Creating a new user will also cause new .ipsw restore files to be downloaded in the new user. You can find the ".ipsw" files in these locations:
Windows XP iPod touch: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates (If you don't see the Application Data folder, you may need to show hidden files by opening (My Computer) Click on Folder Options. in that window click on the view tab, and make sure that show hidden files is selected.
Windows Vista iPod touch: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates (If you don't see the AppData folder, you may need to show hidden files)
1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options. 2. Click the View tab. 3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.

After removing and reinstalling the latest version of iTunes, try restoring iPhone or iPod touch again in the origonal user account.




As an added note, If running Microsoft Windows XP and the issue is resolved on another computer, but you continue to experience difficulties on your original computer, you may want to update or reinstall your Windows USB drivers and then try restoring iPhone or iPod touch again.
If none of these steps work you will need to contact either apple at

1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273)
Or another service provider of your choosing to get the ipod touch serviced or replaced.




I hope this article is very helpful for you and easy to follow. Good luck :)
