    I have an iPod touch (3rd gen I was told) that my fiance bought me. My nephew had it hacked by his friend and it worked great. I let the battery die out before recharging and it is now stuck with the symbols for a USB cable, an "up" arrow, and iTunes. My nephew said the guy who hacked it said that because it is a "new" iPod, the battery can't die out or this will happen. He wants more money to fix it, but he said it wouldn't even take a minute, so I am trying to do it myself. I just don't know what to do. PLEASE HELP.

    did they jailbreak with blackra1n or redsn0w??? (if they even told you what they did)
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    oh and if they did then just download blackra1n and rejailbreak with that (you'd probably be better off with spirit but you gotta restore to jailbreak with it)

    your not downloading it to the ipod its to you computer. Just go to blackra1n.com and download either mac or windows version then click make it ra1n

    or do a restore in itunes and then go to spiritjb.com and download spirit and then jailbreak with that (its unteathered meaning no connecting to computer everytime you reboot!!)

    connect your ipod to your computer and press and hold the power and home buttons at same time until the screen turns off then keep holding then home button and then itunes will say your ipod is in recovery mode and restore

    The computer says that it detected an iPod in recovery mode and it needs to be restored. If I restore it, won't I loose the hack?
