I have an bricked iPod touch 2G which shows an red Logo [PWNED!] when turning it on. Sometimes it will shows an iTunes Logo (Recovery Mode). When this happens, iTunes regognizes it as an iPod. It is possible to do an Firmware Udate. It shows an Apple Logo with an progress bar, but when the firmware loader reaches 100% (after 8 minutes or so), nothing happens. The progress bar stays at 100%. When I turn off/on the device, the red [PWNED!] logo is still there. It is impossible to bring it into the DFU-Mode (the 10sec Power+Home Button method doesn´t work). I have a command line tool which loads a file onto the iPos (iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu). Also this tool doesn´t work. Is there a chance to bring it into the DFU-Mode, or do you think it has defective Flash-Memory and only changing the LogicBoard is bringing the device back to live? ------------------double post merged------------------Because a restore with a fresh firmware doesn´t work, it's definitively a defective Flash-ROM. Goodbey iPod.
