    Ok so last night I installed a new item off Ifortner source (it was to incase maximum volume)
    But when i tried to scrool or use any application the touch wouldnt respond only the spring board.
    So then i decided id re jailbreak but first i decided to downgrade the bootloader (NOT A GOOD IDEA) So it failed and i had to stop it,
    Anyone know a way to put the ipod into a forced recovery mode ?
    When i turn my ipod on it says loads "BSD root: Md0, major 2, minor 0"

    Please help

    No, your iPod is not bricked.

    1. Download iLiberty+ from theiphoneproject.org and install.
    2. Delete ZiPhone.
    3. With iTunes and iLiberty open, unplug your iPod and turn it off (hold home and power button)
    4. Hold the home button and plug it in into the computer, let go of home button 10 or 15 seconds later.
    5. With iLiberty, put your iPod in DFU mode and restore in iTunes.

    Problem solvered.

    I think it's funny how every noob on the forum thinks their iPod is bricked the first time something goes wrong. I'm not trying to flam or anything, it's just kinda funny to me.
