    Stuck on Apple logo after I attempted an SBSetting reboot. It will not turn on, is not detected by iTunes, when I attempt to drain the battery and connect it to a power source, it simply reverts to apple logo after displaying battery. Cannot turn it off, but black screens after holding the sleep and home button for a period of time, after a while displays logo, after that black screens again.

    I can't seem to get it into restore or DFU mode!

    Restoring a jailbroken device in recovery mode results in a whole bunch of problems.

    You gotta get it into dfu mode and then restore.

    It wont hurt to try Restore first anyway. It might work. I dont see any difference between the two most of the time it will work, jailbroke or not.

    the difference is that recover is in the iboot, where dfu is in the bootrom,
    iboot is writable and is used in jailbreak,
    dfu is not writable making it wipe both the iboot and kernal/userspace during a restore

    when i restored as a recovery it broke my push notifications,

    ALLWAYS restore jailbroken via DFU

    Question. Where did you get that info, Is that from an official source?

    I was jailbroken but restored in DFU mode. I assume that limera1n modified my ipod touch's NOR chip. (that one containing iboot).

    So after restoring in DFU my ipod touch is exactly as from factory? I am concerned because even after restoring in DFU mode now it takes 1 or 2 seconds to press power button to begin boot sequence (show the apple logo)

    thanks for your reply

    have u tried force reboot?:
    hold power and home until apple logo comes out

    guess you already tried the above.

    Just turn it off
    hold home button when fully off
    plug in while holding
    should be in dfu
    still hold until windows recognizes
