Today I found an old iPod Touch and it seems like something is wrong with it so I boot it into recovery mode and try to restore it with iTunes. But there are something wrong and I have to manually restore it with the IPSW file. Now I am at ipsw.me and stuck while trying to identify what device this is. I went to checkcoverage.apple.com and enter my iPod Touch's serial number. It tells me it is OBS iPod Touch. Here's the result:

Here's a picture of the iPod Touch if it helps:

    "Obsolete", which I guess isn't really that helpful :/ iTunes ought to be able to find the correct ipsw for it, btw. & telling us what the "something wrong" is may help too. – Tetsujin Aug 23 '16 at 11:58
  • @Tetsujin Good guess:) This iPod can only boot to recovery. When I plug it into iTunes, it just says iPod. I think it is attempting to download iOS 3.1.3 but it can't. – Tom Shen Aug 23 '16 at 14:35
  • well, only Touch whose last iOS is 3.1.3 is the original, 1st gen, so that might narrow it down a bit ;-) – Tetsujin Aug 23 '16 at 15:34
