Restore ipod without updating firmware
On a side note, if you attempted to download an i OS update from within i Tunes and it failed, you may want to trash the file it downloaded.
You can do this by going to the IPSW file location and just deleting the file.
Select your i OS hardware to get a complete list of i OS updates for that device: That’s all there is to it.Your i Device will be automatically stopped from downloading an update for you in the future.If you don’t want to continue receiving the update alert, then you need to delete the downloaded update.You can download any i OS software updates for i Pad, i Phone, and i Pod touch without using i Tunes.There are actually two ways to do this, the first is using the i OS device itself but there are caveats and limitations with that, and then there is the traditional method of downloading the update files directly from Apple without i Tunes, which is particularly helpful for those who rely on download managers or who are just encountering trouble with i Tunes automatic updates.
This is often a more reliable way to get an i OS update immediately, sometimes i Tunes will time out during the download when an i OS update has just been released, this is probably due to server overload.
