    Hello,

    I was attempting to get multi-touch running on my openiBoot (iPod touch 1G). Accidental I deleted a hey char after editing zerphyr2.img3 and uploaded it without knowing this. (I realized this afterwards). Now my iPod wont even show the normal openiBoot console. Actually when turning it on it only shows a completely black screen and is stuck there. I can't open the console and therefore can't restore or uninstall openiBoot. I kind of broke my NOR I guess.
    Is there a way to get this fixed?
    I can't boot into iOS or anything else, just a black screen right from the start. I can only do a hard shut down by pressing hold and home together.

    if you restore, it should get rid of everything except essentials

    But a DFU does a completely clean install.
