    there's a fix.. take the flat end of a pen (not the end u write with) and press the home button as hard as you can.. hold it down and press the sleep button to do a hard reset. if that works, use ur home button by pressing down really really hard then releasing, it should register a second after u release

    probably don't push as hard as you can.

    I would say restore to get rid of the white screen, then either take it apart and fix it yourself or find someone to fix it for you.
    Or sell it on ebay as is and buy a new device.

    or just get your friend who broke it to pay for a new one or the repairs

    Directions to get it open on 1g ipod touch

    Same thing happened to my bros, i opened it up and replaced the spring and the button. You can run your fingernail where the silver and the black meet if your using a 1g. Then use a screwdriver,
    and put it in the middle of where the silver and black meet on the bottem, where the plug is, and pry it open.
