I recommend what the moderator said but this is another option for downgrade, Try this: READ FIRST. Plug your ipod back in, if you can do it in that same state, this time when u go to restore it, hold down ALT key and click RESTORE, then search for the 1.1.4 firmware in your computer that you downloaded. I'm not a 100 % this will work but it's something. If during any process of restoring, your ipod's screen turns black and u can't restore it to the normal screen or just can't change it, don't worry this happens to many people (it happened to me), just simply hold the reset button and the home key for a really long time (were talking minutes), if its been over 3 minutes do it again. Do it until it's back to normal. Good luck mate!
