I attempted to get the new 3.0 software today. I installed it through Xcode and downloaded the .ipsw file from mininova. When I installed it Xcode said that I needed to restore the ipod for the update to take place. I did. The screen turned purple and iTunes said that I wasn't registered as a developer or something like that. Now my phone will not work. I tried restoring it to the older versions but the update process quits at around 60%.
I called Apple and they said that there is literally nothing I can do. I'm fucked. Wait until June for 3.0 to be released to the public.
So, is there anyone here that has a good solution? I'm trying a couple of last things. Holding down the option key when hitting restore and selecting the 2.2.1.ipsw file. But this doesn't look promising.
Thanks for your help.
