iPod classic 160gb (slim) stuck in restore loop.
Wondering if anyone can help me with this one, i have an iPod classic 160gb slim which has had:
- a new logic board - running firmware 2.0.4 p/n 820-2437-a
- a new hard drive - 160gb toshiba mk8022
After fitting these parts i cannot get the unit to restore, so have changed the hard drive ribbon cable. but it is still the same. It goes through the motions of a restore but the pops back up in iTunes again straight away saying it is in recovery mode.
The original ribbon cable has the following part number: 821-0728-01
but i cannot find a replacement for this so have tried both:
And I've read on here that the ribbons should be interchangeable. I'm at a loss, anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
