    i downloaded logome and i changed my logo. My iPod started lagging pretty bad after that so I decided to uninstall LogoMe
    then when i booted my iPod back up, my logo was still there and my Home Button and Lock button both weren't getting recognized by my iPod.
    they work to boot up and power down but they just don't work to exit apps or my music.
    What should i do to fix this?

    Place your iPod touch into DFU Mode:

    To place your iPod touch into DFU Mode, follow one of these ways:

    1. Hold down Sleep/Wake button and Home button together, until the iPod touch powers off. Once the iPod touch turns on again, let go of the Sleep/Wake button about 1 or 2 seconds later, still holding the Home button. Once plugged in, iTunes will recognize the device is in Recovery Mode.

    2. Open up iLiberty+ and under the Other Tools tab select Enter DFU Mode.

    3. Open up ZiPhone (3.0 used) and select Prepare for Upgrade.

    Search DFU mode, and do it. Then just restore. Only way perhaps.

    the same thing happened to me, but I thought iLiberty and ZiPhone didn't work on 2.0 and above? Will this owrk on my 2.1 Touch?

    No, they are wrong, iLiberty and ZiPhone won't respond with 2x firmwares.

    [HOW TO] Put iPhone/iPod Touch In DFU mode
    1. Make sure your iPhone/iPod Touch is turned on and connected to iTunes
    2. Hold the power and home button down at the same time till it turns off
    3. As soon (like once you see) the iPhone/iPod Touch disappears (disconnects) from iTunes, let go of the power button but continue to hold the Home button
    4. Wait till iTunes says "Your iPod is in recovery mode and has to be restored", if you look at your iPhone/iPod Touch the screen will be black...This is normal and your iPhone/iPod Touch is in DFU mode
