    i was trying to delete a web link when my ipod crashed and entered safe mode. it repeated this behavior so i tried deleting the link in safe mode and it worked. then when i respringed, it froze and the screen went black. i rebooted, and now its stuck in a 5-minute cycle where the logo shows up, a loading wheel, and then it reboots. i can't get it into any other mode.

    any help?

    please?

    Keep trying to get into DFU mode. The instant the screen goes black, hold the buttons. kepp trying till the Apple logo stops whowing up. Then restore.
