How can i restore my ipod without updating it
Sometimes this alone can resolve i OS download problems too.
Over the years we’ve had a few Enigma Recovery customers contact us asking how to fix an i Phone stuck in recovery mode.
The general method of recovery for an i Phone stuck in recovery mode is an i Tunes restore – great if you have recently performed an i Tunes backup, tragic if you have not.
If your last i Tunes backup was a while ago, you risk losing any data added to your device since your last i Tunes backup.
If you don’t see Remove from Account, click All Devices again, then click the Delete button next to the device.
This allows your i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch to be restored from any state.
DFU mode requires a bit of timing and can take practice to get right: If at first you don't succeed, don't be afraid to try again. Updated January 2018: Updated for i OS 11, i Phone 8 and 8 Plus, and i Phone X.
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.
