My iPod Touch is in a state which is usually called "bricked"(yeah, I know a normal user can`t really "brick" his ipod). When it isn`t connected to my computer, I can`t do anything with it. I can`t turn it on or anything. Also, when I recharge it the power adapter, it doesn`t show the battery on the screen, but I think it actually DOES recharge. When I connect it to iTunes, the screen of the iPod turns white and iTunes, of course, asks me to restore. I have tried restoring so many times in many different ways as well: *just plain restore with whatever firmware iTunes downloads *ctrl + shift restore with 1.1.1 *reinstalled iTunes *different (new) users in Windows *different computers (PCs and Macs) During the restore, I can sometimes see the Apple logo on the iPod and sometimes it does THIS. Also, when the restore ends, I get an error (usually the good old 1604, but sometimes others too. When I read the documents about all these errors on the Apple site, it has stupid tips like "reinstall iTunes, recharge your iPod"). I have heard that people have successfully brought their iPods back to life by simply trying and trying to restore for 30 times and I am willing to do that (what choice do I have?), but is there anything else I can do? I mean, I am ready to take risks, so if there is anykind of hardcore hacking or deeper stuff I could do... I can`t take it back to an Apple store because I bought the damn thing from Ebay.
