    Hey,
    So last night I was kinda bored. So I had my iPod open in ssh. I got the idea to delete everything in my root directory.

    So I did. Now my iPod wont work.

    Any idea on how to fix this?

    You need to completely unlock your iPod. I find a claw hammer works good. Hit the screen until it shatters (don't worry, that is normal), and carefully remove all the bits of glass.
    Once you have gotten through the screen, heres what you need to do:

    1. Take a print-screen of your iTunes.
    2. Print it off.
    3. Fold it up real small.
    4. Put it inside your iPod and tape the broken bits of the screen back over it.

    Your iPod will re-download all the data from your iTunes through the paper using osmosis. Now you will have all your items back on.

    Oh, one final step:
    5. Make up a better story next time you try to BS people on a forum

    Show at-least some respect? Maybe there are reasons why he can't tell you what happened. Whatever the case, don't treat members like morons.. Although some of 'em might deserve it. Sit there and say it to your stuffed teddy bear

    Come-on, this is clearly fake...its almost as obvious as the guy who apparently took his iPod in the shower and was surprised when it got wet...then put it in the microwave to dry it out.

    Your iPod is dead. If this is true, you are the dumbest person ever. That's like deleting your startup folders then asking why isn't this turning on?

    I had the same problem and this worked wonders for me! Thanks!
    I used some really nice scotch tape so you could barely tell I ripped it apart.

    Hopefully someone can help me with my totally real and not-fake-at-all problem?..
    Earlier today I accidentally cooked and ate part of my Grandma. Can someone help me fix the issue and replace the broken part?
