    Hey Guys, I really appreciate the help. Ok, I just went to upgrade my iPod Touch 2G from a tethered jailbreak to an untethered. I used QuickFreedom, but thats irrelevant. Before I jailbroke I used APTBackup to try and save the massive amount of apps and other stuff I had gotten from Cydia. It backed up with problem. Then I backed up everything on my iPod with iTunes. At this point everything is going great. Then I loaded up QuickFreedom and made the custom firmware...yada yada yada...and eventually had my iPod successfully jailbroken with problem, had cydia and all that fine. I then resynced everything back on (which took like an hour and a half

    ...). I then installed APTBackup from Cydia and hit "Restore". It then went throught the process of restoring, since it appeared it would take a long time and since I'm sick I decided to take a nap. When I awoke I found my iPod in the process of booting up, i thought "yay its done" but soon found otherwise. My iPod is stuck in it's booting state, where it show the apple, it never goes on to the springboard. During this cycle it connects and disconnects from my PC randomly, not long enough for iTunes to get a proper restore. I also can't get it into DFU mode because it cant turn off. I hold the power button and get nothing, when I hold the power and home it restarts, i can't get it off. Eventually after trying to boot for like 20 min. it auto-restarts and trys again.

    Please Help Me! It would appear my iPod has been practically bricked by this menace!!! I don't know what went wrong in the process but its messed up! I'll try any suggestions you can give, thanks!

    The bolded is a complete lie, since you see the boot logo, it is not bricked. Just go into DFU mode and restore

    You obviously didn't read the whole thing, my iPod can't be turned off...i.e. NO DFU! And i said practically bricked for a reason, i highly doubt it is actually bricked.

    Ok, finally after many tries it went into DFU this time instead of restarting. Problem should be resolved.

    It doesn't have to turn off to go into DFU

    Then you weren't doing DFU Mode right...

    APTBackup has never given me any major problem like this.

    Wonder what causes it.
