    Okay well my ipod has been working fine and it's semi-tethered jailbroken.

    Anyways my problem is that one day I had my ipod connected to my computer and I was on Itunes and out of the blue Itunes says it cannot recognize my ipod and it would not charge it or sync anything.

    So I unplugged it and it stayed at the apple icon, I turned it off and turned it on again and it just stays at that apple icon, and it's been like this for a few days now.

    The only way to get it off is restore.

    Do this:

    1) Start your iTunes and connect your iPhone or iPod touch to your mac/pc.

    2) Keep holding the sleep/wake and home button for about 10 seconds. Release the sleep/wake button, but keep holding the home button. you will hear some sounds.

    3) If you did it correctly iTunes will tell you that it has detected an iPhone or iPod touch in recovery mode.

    4) If you see the iTunes icon and cable on your iPhone, your device is not in DFU mode, but in recovery mode. Your device’s screen will be black when you are in DFU mode. I always have to try this several times so succeed.
