    I had my 2g jailbroken and working fine. I decided I wanted to resore the touch to stock state. I first tried dl itunes 10 and plugging my ipod in to that and restoring it that way.

    When itunes didn't recognize the touch, I decided to restore it by going to settings > general > reset and do it that way. It looked like it was working, there was an apple, and a status bar.

    About 2 hours later all that I have is the apple logo. When I hold the power + home button, it shuts off, but when I turn it back on, all I get is the apple logo.

    I tried DFU mode, but i cant seem to make it happen. I do get an itunes logo with the usb cable on the screen, but that's it.


    Does anyone know where I should go from here?

    Since you have the iTunes logo and the usb cable, this is restore mode, just restore it to the newest firmware or if you have your shsh blobs saved for earlier versions of iOS you can restore it to an older one and get jailbreak.

    Congrats! You succesfully "bricked" you iPod by resetting in the Settings.app.
    To solve this you might need iReb or Recboot, to get the iPod out of its state. That iTunes doesn't recognize it, might be a problem of your computer.

    As Lux2GS said you might try Recboot or iReb also.

    Windows also doesn't recognize the device. Figured I really effed it up this time.

    I'll search iReb and Recboot.

    Thanks

    iReb keeps failing in online mode, I'll try recboot now.

    What Now?

    Recboot says that my device "should" be in recovery mode, yet nothing changes on the screen?

    When I open itunes it still doesnt recognize my ipod.

    Ireb keeps failing to enter DFU mode?

    Appreciate the help.

    Recboot says my ipod touch is in recovery mode even when it's not plugged in to my computer.

    For iReb try the bootloop fixer.

    SOLVED!!

    After finding that windows nor itunes was recognizing my touch I looked in to the driver and saw that Windows was not even loading the driver. It kept coming back as "unknown device," even after manually loading the driver from c:/program files/common files/apple folder. I even went as far as to uninstall all of my usb drivers and reloaded them.

    Finally I decided to try a different usb cable.

    That's all it was

    My next issue came from my ipod not accepting the firmware that itunes downloaded. Luckily I have saved a copy of the original firmware when I jailbroke it. That loaded fine and i'm back up 100%

    Thanks for the non help.
