I am using iPod Touch 5G and I've recently jailbroken it.

First, all my apps disappeared from the springboard. But now the iPod is stuck in recovery mode. I get a 9006 error when I try to restore it via iTunes.

I've searched online and found a few answers, but none of them work.

  • @Robuust okay so awesome people can edit other's questions. But I think it would be nice if you mentioned that I put it in recovery mode due to a restart loop which happened after I did a respring from Bytafont. I'm a novice here, but just saying.

    Could you navigate to \Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates -> Remove the IPSW there and download it again from iTunes. External sources can always be messed with.

    The internet is a big area, can you be a bit more specific about the procedure you are recommending here?
