    I have a problem with my 2g ipod touch 8gb.

    it is stuck on the apple logo.

    Despite trying several different firmwares installed using DFU mode it is still stuck.

    I does everything it should do and I can see the firmware loading on the ipod but when it finishes it just goes back to the apple logo.

    Before I return it under warranty is there anything else I can try??

    Pleeease!

    Enter your iPod Touch into DFU, then Plug it in, see if iTunes knows its there.
    If so just hit Restore and it should be restored to a Official Firmware that it should be useable.

    i returned it to Apple and they have stated "Accidental damage or abuse found - service declined"

    Does anybody have any other ideas what I can do or have a learnt a lesson not to buy a "faulty" ipod from e bay ?

    Open redsn0w and then rejailbreak your iPod. UNCHECK INSTALL CYDIA THOUGH!

    I am not entirely sure it was ever jailbroken. It wont boot at all despite trying DFU mode several times.

    is there a way I can just load the firmware without it booting up so it will just have the custom firmware and nothing else

    ipod has come back to me from Apple. Stating that it has had water damage.

    So, it's doomed!
