    Okay many people have recently been saying they have a bricked iPod Touch. This is mainly because they tried to Jailbreak using the ZiPhone method with a 16GB or 32GB iPod Touch or they tried to Jailbreak 1.1.3 and messed up in the process. So far I don't know of a single person who have actually "Bricked" their iPod. But if you insist on saying you have a bricked iPod then follow these steps to recover it.

    Steps:

    1. First if your iPod is already not turned off then turn it off by holding the Hold and the Home button down until the iPod turns off and the release them.

    2. Next press the Hold button until you see the apple logo and as soon as you see the apple logo quickly let go of the Hold button and press and hold the Home button.

    3. Hold the Home Button until you see the Recovery Mode screen and let go of the Home button.

    4. Now Plug in your iPod if already not plunged in and open iTunes.

    5. Now Press the restore button in iTunes and restore your iPod Touch.

    And there you have it. An Unbricked iPod Touch.

    Now also another thing. When i tried ZiPhone To JailBreak my iPod Touch 16GB and Got The "BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0" error, for some reason i was not able to manually put my iPod into recovery mode. If thats whats happening to you follow these steps to recover you iPod.

    Steps:

    1. Download the new ZiPhone 2.4 http://www.downloadziphone.org/

    2. Turn your iPod on and wait until its on the screen where it keeps on showing the BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0 error.

    3. Open ZiPhone 2.4

    4. Click in the bottom right corner where is says "Click to show extra features".

    5. Now in the right side in the box that says "Change iPhone Mode" there are 3 choices. DFU Mode, Recovery Mode, and Normal Mode. Click on the DFU Mode Option.

    5. Now wait until its done Entering DFU Mode.

    6. Now Open iTunes and recover your iPod Touch.

    Note: Also the people who's iPods Keep on going into recovery mode in 1.1.3 or you somehow accidentally put you iPod into recovery mode you can use the Normal Mode option in ZiPhone 2.4 and exit recovery mode.

    By following these steps correctly you iPod should now be fully functional.
