    Hey guys,
    Recently my ipod crashed and showed that I needed to restore blackra!n and I tried and it appeared on my itunes and wouldnt restore. Now it is stuck on the blackra!n screen and wont do anything and I can't restore it on Itunes because it isnt there anymore.
    What should I do?

    I couldn't get to dfu I think I lost her. We will just have to see if any more experienced guys have any positive comments to help get me out of this situation.

    surely the batteries have worn out by now and you can just plug it back in?
    if not, try to download a program to put it in DFU mode. you can search it on google there are lots of them out there. simple command prompt interfaces that will let you do it.

    If you barely had any experience with the device, I and other people on these forums, reccomend not to jailbreak until you "Get to know your iDevice."

    could be because its a tethered jailbreak and you have to run blackra1n to get into your ipod.

    It can't be that, tethered jailbreaks wouldn't cause this because it never was a problem in the past (plus, the OP already said it was because the battery was out of charge that it did this).
