As the title says, my iPod (gen 5, which ever is the last) is stuck on the cable-iTunes screen. The twist is I was deliberately running iOS 6 or maybe 7. Which ever version, the choice was deliberate as nothing in the later releases interests me and I know better than to pair an older device with later iOS's. Unfortunately, I can't simply restore from my backup. I'm forced to upgrade??? Really? Is there no way I can recover to my last backup? What's the point to backing up? I assume my last hope is to go to the Apple store. Lastly, its not jailbroken, if that's important.
