i'm hoping someone can help. My wife's itouch 2g non mc died so i tried a legit restore via tunes using ipsw 4.2.1, however it errors with code 37. itunes is uptodate and all diagnostics pass in itunes. i have tried multilple pc's and cables resulting in the same error.

i have tried sn0wbreeze 2.2.1, redsn0w versions 9.6,9.9,9.10, fixrecovery421, tinyumbrella5.10 and nothing seems to work. It looks as though the restore is happening, but at the end of the verify, it just errors out. when entering the DFU mode i do not see the apple logo, but once the restore is commencing it does show the logo and the status bar.

something tell me, i might be in a loop or the boot process is corrupted.

any help would be greatly appreciated.
