    I haven't had an error updating software since iOS 5 allowing you to wirelessly update. But when I did encounter errors I always chose the "download only" option instead of "download and update". Have you tried that?

    Didn't work bro... the prob with iTunes is that my internetkeeps conking off... by the time it comes back on connection times out. How do I prevent iTunes from this?

    Bummer... Take it to an Apple Store or find the update file elsewhere, if you can. Maybe you can take it to a friends house and update it there - numerous possibilities. But before you leave your home give this a shot

    Download iPod Touch Firmware / IPSW Files

    Scroll all the way down to iOS 6.0.1 for iPod touch 4th gen and download it. It's not through iTunes so you don't have to worry about that pesky timeout problem because of your magic Internet connection. Hope your not paying much for it.

    OMG LOL MAN THAT GUY IS HUGE!! no way not even close but thanks for the laugh. I think my problem was that I downloaded the IPSW for iOS 6 instead iOS 6.0.1 which is why iTunes rejected it. Downloading iOS 6.0.1 IPSW now. Like, NOW now.
