    Hey guys,

    When I force reset my iPod (holding down both sleep and home for 10 sec), it will always end up putting the iPod in restore mode.....

    Luckily I used iBrickr to get it out of restore mode. However, I tried the reset combo (just to doublecheck) again, and it resulted in the same thing. What's up with that?

    That's what it does if your iPod is plugged in...

    Wait, what? What do you mean?

    I have my iPod unplugged from my computer...I then hold down both home and sleep for 10 sec, the ipod starts to reboot, it hits the apple logo, then it brings up the itunes connect picture on the screen.

    It always happens when you force restart, and its pretty annoying...

    Just make sure your ipod doesn't freeze...

    If it does, just use iPhuc and type cmd fsboot.

    OMG, that sucks ass. Does it really?

    What can I do if I am not by a computer when it happens (freezes)? Dang!

    Does this just happen because of the jailbreak, or is it supposed to do that?

    EDIT: Thinking about it, there is no way that it is SUPPOSED to do that. Why would they even have a separate option to go into recovery mode over force reset then?

    Ok, heres what it does.

    1. I begin holding down home and sleep.
    2. After about 10 seconds, it turns off and the apple logo appears...I immediately let go of both buttons at the same time.
    3. I wait.....the apple logo stays for about 20-30 seconds and then the screen turns off (like it was rebooted again or something), and then the apple logo appears for about 5 seconds, and THEN goes to the connect to iTunes logo (recovery mode).

    It does this EVERY time I do a force reset.... I then have to go into iBrickr to get it back. What gives???

    When I try to use the iPhuc method, it just says bus error and exits. Does this mean I have the wrong version, or do I really need to restore?

    EDIT: iNDependence did the job.

    If you try to force reset your iPod does it always result in a recovery mode too?

    On 1.1.3 yes. I don't know about earlier firmwares, but I do know that I have, once in the past, managed to restart it without putting it in recovery mode.
