[Advice] Restored iPhone IPSW to my iTouch, now can't restore anymore
I Used an iPhone firmware to pwn my iPod touch (I know, i'm a moron). Now that that's out of the way I have no display, though it is recgonized in itunes as an iPhone, and won't let me restore any firmware. I got it in DFU mode with ZiPhone, but Still can't restore any ipsw files (all ipod versions). ANY Help would be appreciated, Thanks.
Grab a working copy of dfu.exe; there's a link to an archive with it here http://limitededitioniphone.com/how-...into-dfu-mode/
Now extract an iTouch IPSW file, and go into Firmware\dfu
copy iBSS.n45ap.RELEASE.dfu into the same folder as dfu.exe, and run (from Command Prompt or Run or whatever) "\path\to\dfu iBSS.n45ap.RELEASE.dfu"
The n45ap is the key, that's an iTouch dfu instead of the m65ap iPhone dfu.
This will load the iPod Touch DFU onto your iTouch. It's *not* a flash, it just sends the DFU and starts it. Then fire up iTunes and restore an iTouch IPSW. Hopefully it'll work.
(I'm guessing your issue now is that it's recognized as being an iPhone, so ziPhone sends an iPhone DFU, so when you put it in DFU mode it's expecting an iPhone IPSW. btw don't use ziPhone, it sucks and is responsible for more broken and bricked devices than any other app, ever.)
You could, if you haven't already, also try simply putting the iTouch into DFU mode (black screen) manually (using buttons, it's described at the page linked earlier), but it's quite tricky to get the timing right; the dfu.exe method is easier and more reliable if dfu.exe will work.

Okay, so how does one counter the command DFU.exe sends to the iPhone?
I tested this application with a fully-functioning iPhone and found it to work effectively, but now my iPhone endlessly boots into DFU mode repeatedly. I hope I don't have to do a full-restore now...
Ahah, solution found at http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/f127/53930-2.htm
Alas, the solution was not permanent - after rebooting with the FSBOOT command, I got caught up in another endless DFU-loop. It was only a temporary solution.
I believe I have now solved the problem. Here were the steps I took:
-After a reboot, iRecovery was no longer functioning for me (no device detected). At this point, I got fed-up with trying to solve the problem via button-mashing.
-I launched iTunes only to find my device was no longer detected here, either! I rebooted (into DFU automatically...), shift-clicked restore, and selected the latest firmware. After the software had extracted (viewed via iTunes' progress bar), I got an error - I believe it was code-1600.
-I decided to launch QuickPwn to see if I could repwn it into a proper boot-cycle. Upon the launch of the application, I was prompted to hold Home+Power for 15 seconds, followed by power for 2 seconds to reset my device. No luck, it still wasn't detected. But wait... what's this?
-Before my eyes, my device booted properly. I believe the fix was toggled via iTunes' partial- (read: failed-) restore process mentioned earlier.
Please be careful with that DFU tool - because of it (and my questionable prioritization protocols with regards to this magic pocket-device) I didn't get my homework done tonight.
