    Hi,
    I have a 2G iPod TOuch (MB model) running iOS4.0

    This morning, when I wanted to use my ipod, it showed the "connect to iTunes" screen.
    I didn't understand because i had done nothing.
    So i tried to kick it out of recovery mode, but when the apple logo showed up meaning my ipod was starting to boot, it was immediately replaced by the connect to itunes screen.
    So i downloaded recboot, but when i pressed the "exit recovery mode" button, my ipod went in a loop, where it started to boot, but then the connect to itunes screen came, then it reboot, etc.

    Can anyone please tell me what is going wrong with my ipod and why i can't get it out of recovery?

    If all else fails, DFU restore will get you out of trouble. You could try using tinyumbrella to kick it out of recovery mode,

    I've tried tinyumbrella, but it fails the same way as recboot did...


    What do you mean by hard reboot?

    Hold home and sleep until device turns off then wait for it to boot up.

    But when the device starts to boot, it immediately stops, and shows up the connect to itunes screen.
    Really, I don't understand what is going on. I don't want to restore.

    @ ibby1001 : Yeah, but if I put it in DFU Mode, I'll have to restore it too...

    I don't want to restore, unless it is the only solution.

    Thank you guys for the answers, I'm waiting for other ideas

    If it is all backed up then your best option is to DFU restore it, but since you dont want to restore then i suggest to keep trying to put it in DFU and just reboot it sort of thing. Im sure that wont work but theres always a chance it could work but its slim. Another option is if you have another computer with a different itunes on try connecting with that could work but as i said the only simple and easy way is to restore. There prob is no other solution thats simple to do.
