Restore Hacked iPod to Default Firmware

Posted April 18, 2007 by pro-ipod in iPod

I love to hack my iPod, but sometimes I go too far. However, it is easy to restore a hacked iPod back to the safety of the original firmware.

Hacking firmware should not be scary. You can always restore back to the original firmware.

1. Make sure you all have music and data backed up from your iPod. Restoring will erase all data.

2. Connect your iPod and load iTunes

3. Select your device in the Source panel
4. From the Summary tab, select the Restore button


During this process, it is essential that the instructions are followed correctly. Mainly, the directions ensure that the device can be powered throughout the process and that the data being sent to your iPod is not interrupted.
