    Why would you buy it if the screen is cracked.

    Here is my theory of what happened, The "person" tried to jailbreak his iPod, thought that he "bricked" it (no you cannot actually brick your iPod) and threw it a wall because he was pissed off.

    Real Answer to your question:
    To fix it, try to put it into DFU mode then do a full restore.
