    I have an Ipod 3g that will not restore, it goes through the process until it hits the loading screen on the IPOD its self and then i get Itunes error 1611. Has anyone else had this issue i have spent the last 2 weeks trying to get it restored and google is not helping.

    Edit: The Ipod restarts in the middle of preparing for restore and that gives the 1611 error.
    the screen goes black then back to the recovery mode screen

    Have you tried entering DFU mode? Try that first. To enter DFU, hold the sleep/wake button and the home button together for ten seconds, then release the sleep/wake button, and hold the home button for 30 seconds. iTunes should pop up saying that it has detected an iPod in recovery mode. Hit restore, and see what happens. If it works, congrats! If not, try this: Go into control panel, and click "add or remove programs." Delete EVERYTHING that has to do with Apple (Quicktime, Apple Mobile Device support, Bonjour, Apple Application Support, Apple Software Update.) I believe that is all of them. Now go here and download the latest version, 10.5, I believe. Then install it and try restoring again. If even that doesn't work, I would try going to the Apple store. By the way, what software version are you restoring to? And also, if you're bricked because you were jailbroken, I wouldn't recommend taking it to the Apple store...they may not like that ... Hope I helped
