14. My iPod is showing a blank white screen and won't respond to any of these steps! That, my friend, is a brick. But it's a hardware related one, and related to the dock connector. Get your iPod replaced and get your dock replaced too. Apple will be happy to do it. Surely if you returned it to apple they wont supply a new one for free if you've jailbroken it? I've read you can restore your ipod but if its bricked/or the worst happens, can you still restore it so its back to its original state? I bought mine on ebay...would they still do it?
