Spamming AT, Waiting for a response http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45537 http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45248 Your iPod Is Not Bricked Help, I have the spinning circle of doom! Is my iPod bricked? No, it's not. To get out of the spinning circle of doom simply delete the last thing you installed via SSH. If you can't use SSH, check the Applications section below for alternatives. Also try using a backup of your N45AP.plist HELP!!! IT WON'T DO ANYTHING!!! I'M BRICKED!!! No. You're not bricked. The only way that you would be bricked is that you ultimately failed in doing the Dual Boot, you entered a "death command" in Terminal, or you managed to screw up the bootloader. All of which are not easy to do unless you're trying to. The common user will never brick their iPod touch. A restore will fix any problem you have that has been related to jailbreak. If the issue is not fix, restore and take it to an Apple Store. It's their defect, not yours. Okay great, how do I force restore? See a113524c's and Zombie_Killer's guide here. Note that a force restore will wipe everything on your iPod, and should only be used as a last resort.
