    Hey. I noticed someone posted something similar to this before but as my case is slightly different (his was for 1g I believe), I was wondering if you could help me with an ipod touch 2g problem I just encountered. I jailbroke the ipod about 1-2 weeks ago using the semi-tethered mechanism...everything was working great. Then the screen became unresponsive to my touch...I figured it was just cause I hadn't turned it off in a while so the ipod was tired or something. So, wanting to turn it off, I tried a few things...but as the slider was not available for me to use (..the touch screen being unresponsive), I decided to restore the ipod using itunes to factory settings because I couldn't manage to turn it off. But now it's stuck on a "continuous recovery loop"; as it has been referred to before. Is there any way I can solve this problem...cause it's giving me a headache and I'm afraid I've voided the warranty by jailbreaking it in the first place. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    yes the sleep/wake button AND the home button still respond/work. I have no idea if the touch screen is still unresponsive since I haven't been able to boot up normally out of the "connect to itunes" screen. The main problem is that I can't restore properly... I have a feeling that if I can restore properly, than all those other issues will be solved... perhaps I'm being hopeful at that!!! haha

    I have! as I said - I am able to get into the recovery process, but then it ends suddenly and then the ipod screen goes back to the "connect-to-itunes" screen as if the ipod hadn't recovered at all. I've heard from several sources that it was impossible to "brick" an ipod touch so I have hope...

    Don't want to sound desperate but I AM lol...

    you guys are my best chance. and before you go on thinking I'm just some noob, I've spent hours and hours trying to find a solution to my problem....

    Btw, the problem does not lie in itunes...as I've tried restoring the ipod on two PCs with latest versions of itunes.
