    [SOLVED]Help! Possibly Bricked?

    I think my iPod may be bricked. (iPod 2G, old model)
    First, a little background info:
    I just restored to 3.1.3 from 3.1.2, then I followed a guide on modmyi, which illustrated how to jailbreak 3.1.3 with redsn0w 0.9.4. In the guide (http://modmyi.com/guides/how-jailbreak-3-1-3-iphone-3g-ipod-touch-1g-2g-windows-os-x/) it said to select the 3.1.2 firmware for jailbreaking. Anyway, the jailbreak worked, and I enabled custom boot logo and verbose boot.
    The jailbreak worked fine, I installed a couple of utilities like sbsettings and scrobbl. I then rebooted. After reboot I installed the afc2add service, and it asked me to reboot. Now when I switch on my iPod, it shows the logo, and then it says something like:

    "**VOLUME CHECK FAILED
    Failed to find /dev/rdisk0s1 (hfs) EXITED WITH SIGNAL 8, fsck failed!"

    Then the iPod shuts down. I cannot enter recovery or DFU mode, because the above message shows (briefly) and the iPod shuts down.

    Help!!!

    why did you update in the first place and if you are absolutely sure that you can't get into dfu i guess it is bricked idk you might get them to switch it out but i'm not sure with it saying that

    I updated because of an annoying error I was getting, when I would boot my iPod, it would take ages, and then finally springboard would crash and go to safe mode, and then only worked when I used the option to restart it. I was also getting a "unable to allocate memory" error (in cydia and other apps), so I thought a clean start would be better.

    Yay!!!! I managed to get into recovery mode, I had to use the alternative method listed here:
