Why can't I update my iPod touch (4th gen) to 5.0.1?

So I have an iPod touch 4th gen previously jailbroken (if that matters) but now restored becouse i wanted to upgrade to iOS 5.0.1. But everytime i try i get "error -43". So I've been googling and stuff like that to find out what it is and what it means but I can't find any match on it. So i don't know if it's wrong with itunes or the iPod so I really don't know what to do.. Anyone who know how I could fix this? Please help.

Temporarily disable or turn off all security software, such as firewall, anti-virus, anti-spam etc.. And try the download again.

  • Why can't I update my ipod touch to the iOS 4.3?

    Why can't I update my ipod touch to the iOS 4.3?
    I try to update my ipod touch 4th gen. to the new iOS 4.3 software and the thing loads and after the 7-8 minutes or so, when it says "processing file" a pop up says that the network connection has timed out, and to check my network settings. I've tried several different times and get the same result. My wi-fi is working with all three bars and my computer is also connected to the internet. I've tried restoring it but it says I have to get the new software and then I get the same result( this time ipod not restored).... What's going on with my ipod? Anyone help?

    Hi,
    Have you tried to see if you have the newest version of iTunes? Also, it may help if you try the following steps.
    Download iOS from a third-party website (i reccomend http://whited00r.com/) (as this is a full operating system, it is a big download and may take time on a slow internet connection)
    Unzip the file.
    After unzipping, you should now have a .ipsw file.
    Open iTunes
    Connect your device and make sure you take a back-up of it first (if you don't all your data will be erased)
    Now, while pressing the Restore button, hold down the Alt key (for Mac) or the Shift key (for Windows).
    You should now have a window open asking you to choose a file.
    Choose the file you just downloaded from whited00r.com
    Press OK
    It should start replacing your current OS to the new one.
    When this finishes, your device will restart
    Click restore from (whatever your old device was called)
    It will put back all your apps and information

  • I updated my ipod touch 4th gen to ios 5 and lost all my photos. how can i get it back? i'm using windows 7.

    I updated my ipod touch 4th gen to ios 5 and lost all my photos. how can i get it back? i'm using windows 7. help please? thanks!

    This was the scenario:
    The first time I updated, it was only my music that was lost.
    When I got my music back, I lost my apps.
    When I got my apps back, my contacts, notes and photos were lost.
    Now I got back everything except for my photos.
    (Yes, I restored from backup several times since the first update.)
    Do you think if I try restoring from back up, my photos that were taken from my ipod will be restored finally?
    Thank you.

    I know it's a tad late, but I recently updated my iPod touch 4th gen to iOS 6 and now it won't play any of my music. It will play Spotify and YouTube just fine, but it won't play my music. It will just skip to the next a d the next and the next after a second or two without any sound. Please help! Thank you.

    Try:

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Unsync all music and resync
    - Reset all settings      
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup. See:                                 
    iOS: How to back up                                                                
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

    Hello,
    This will fix your problem!
    To put the device in DFU mode,
    1. Connect the device to iTunes
    2. Hold both the power button and the home button down simultaneously
    3. After 10 seconds, release the power button but leave the home button pressed
    4. iTunes should then recognize that the device has entered DFU mode and ask to restore.
    That should get you back on your way.

  • Can I still update my iPod Touch 2nd gen to iOS 4.2.1?

    Hi, I am new to owning an iPod and I am wondering if I can still update my iPod Touch 2nd gen 8GB to iOS 4.2.1. Answers would be great, thank you!

  • I updated my iPod Touch 4th gen. with ios 5 and all my apps and music disappeared. What to do?

    This afternoon I updated my iPod Touch 4th generation with the iOS 5 update. I left the computer alone for about an hour, since that is how long iTunes said the update would take. When I came back, all of my music and apps were gone. Why did this happen? Is there any way to fix it? Thanks for the help.

    - If in the USA you can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    - You can always redownload apps at no additional cost as long as you are signed into the same iTunes account the orignally purchased them.
    - It appears that the apps and music were not in the iTunes library on the computer on which you performed the update.  Music and the apps themselfes (app data is in the backup) are not part of the bckup hat iTunes makes as the first step of the uPdate.  Apps and music are synced from your iTunes library during a latter part of the update process.

  • Can't sync app to ipod touch 4th gen

    I purchased the Home Run Battle 2 app for my ipad, ipod touch and iphone. The app will sync to all devices except to the ipod touch (4th gen). I tried this using my iMac through iTunes. Then, I also tried to get it from the ipod touch by searching for it in the app store and installing, but when I touch the OPEN button, nothing happens. I also tried dragging the app to the device while in iTunes and it won't take. Any suggestions?

    So if you go into the app store, on your ipod, and go to the app's page, does it gives you the option to "open" or ?  You kind of lost me with "go to the app store to get it".  I thought you had gone there before and it said open?
    If you go into settings >> general >> usage, is the app listed there?  If it is, click the app, then click delete app.  Then go back into the app store on the ipod and try to redownload it from the app store.
    You could also try to search for the app on your ipod, if you can't find the icon, by swiping all the way to the left.
    Also, how many pages do you have on your ipod?  I think it maxes out at 11.

  • Updated My ipod touch 4th gen to IOS 6.1. Now everytime I try to finish the update process I get a message " Apple ID couldn't be created because of a server error"

    Now everytime I try to finish the update process I get a message " Apple ID couldn't be created because of a server error. I already have an apple ID I am just trying to finish the update so I can use my ipod touch and can not figure out why I keep getting held back at this message

    So I found out with alittle research that instead of entering all that info on my ipod, security questions, birthday, ect that it was much easier to just go to http://appleid.apple.com and place all that info there and save it than try the process on my ipod and it finished the update.
