    A Bricked iPod Touch 2g (In Effect) HELP PLZ

    I have an iPod Touch 2g running 2.2.1
    My pc OS is Windows XP.
    I recently got the spinning circle of death while installing a package from Cydia (fiveirows or something like that) and, not knowing what to do, i rebooted my ipod by holding the power and home button. However, my ipod got stuck on the boot logo. So i said screw it and decided to simply restore it. I restored it to factory settings, then i attempted to jailbreak it again, but when restoring to custom firmware an error message popped up.
    Now, when i try to restore to the custom firmware OR factory settings an error message pops up (either error 13 or 1604, and recently 1600).
    Since it is in DFU mode i cannot do anything with it until it is restored.
    I have tried restarting my computer, reinstalling itunes, reinstalling QuickFreedom (which i use to jailbreak), restoring to factory settings in DFU mode, and other random things (I've been working on it for 2 days now).
    One thing i haven't done is restoring to a custom firmware created on my computer (for some reason QuickFreedom wont let me create one).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can't restore to a custom firmware with only DFU. You have to let Quickfreedom do the "Pre-Jailbreak" thing first. Try that this time.

    Bricked means it's completely inoperable. Completely inoperable means that it cannot do ANYTHING!!! If you can get it connect to iTunes and restore obviously it's not bricked.

    Restore with a fresh firmware (one downloaded from iTunes)
