    Ok, I have a 1st Gen. 16gig. iPod Touch and it has firmware version 1.1.5 on it.
    I am trying to update it to firmware version 2.0, 2.1 or 2.2. Either one will work for me. I have tried many different things. People tell me to just plug in my iPod, open iTunes, hold down the 'Shift' key and click restore. Then I am supposed to select the firmware update I want to update it to. But when I click on one of the firmware versions (i.e. Firmware Version 2.1) it comes up with an error saying:
    An unknown error has occurred (1403).
    Does anyone know why it keeps saying this error? PLEASE HELP ME!!!
    I have tried downloading like a million different versions of iTunes (including iTunes 6, 7, 7.1, 7.7, and 8.) But that didn't do a thing. I am still getting the same error.
    I put my iPod into DFU mode and tried it again, same error message popped up.
    I have tried restarting my iPod and computer countless times, nothing fixes it...
    iTunes lets me restore my iPod to version 1.1.5 but not 2.0, 2.1, or 2.2.
    I don't know why I am constantly getting this error, does anybody know how to fix it?
    I have looked up answers on google but nothing has fixed the error.
    WHAT DO I DO!!??:cursing:

    PLEASE HELP ME!
    I LOVE YOU!

    Did the screen flash twice and then go dark?

    When I say flash I mean black, but with the backlight on. Dark means black with no backlight.

    If it did then you did it right and I have no clue how to help you.

    If it didn't hold it down and wait for 2 flashes then dark.

    I don't know what you're talking about.
    Do you mean did it flash black when I put it into DFU mode or what?
    When is supposed to flash black or whatever?
    The thing is, when I open iTunes and plug in my iPod Touch, I hold shift and click restore and I try to restore it from firmware version 1.1.5 to firmware version 2.1 and when I try to do that an error pops up saying: An unknown error has occurred (1403).

    Do you have a good working link to a 2.0, 2.1, or 2.2 firmware file?
