Hey I really need someone to give me a helpful answer. I'm trying to restore my ipod touch 4th generation but I keep getting the error that says for example "Bob's Ipod could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1602). I have reinstalled iTunes, Switched USB Slots and I have disabled my anti-virus. I don't know what else to do, My ipod still wont turn on so I have it in DFU Mode. Any Useful comments would be greatly appreciated.

This is what it says in the redsn0w dialogue box - Connected: ipod touch 4g (Pwned DFC Mode) Take note that my ipod wont turn on. (IPSW)- Build: ipod4,1_6.0_10A403 It has my ECID nubmer and it says (Blobs) -Local; Use local blobs for restore or -Remote; Use remote blobs for restore

Does this look right to you? I'm installing ios 6.0.1 right now with itunes

Nevermind thanks for your help, I tried to restore my ipod but it came up with the error saying "Your ipod could not be found" So I guess I broke it. The jailbreak did work at first, When the running screen appeared with the data I got impatient and I held the power button down to try and restart it but that's when the screen turned black I haven't bin able to get it in working order since so thanks anyway for helping me
