    Hi!

    I just came back from a holiday trip and I noticed 5 days or so ago, it didn't work so good... yesterday (at the airport) it didn't work anymore...

    the problem is that it stucks (i think it's the right word... i mean that it doesn't recorgnize anything and it's at the lockscreen... but I can turn the screen on and off...) and I don't know if I can start my ipod with the button that turns the screen off and on... i think the only way to turn it completly off is that it runs out of battery...

    but is it possible to remove the untethered jailbreak without going into dfu mode?

    theres an app in cydia that adds a button to the ipod screen that acts as a home button.

    i forget the name, but its pretty recent.
    id say within the last week.

    my ipod just recorgnices the button which turns the ipod off and on... i cant unlock it because it stucks (right word?)...

    i want to send it to apple so they can replace it...

    can i boot the ipod with just the button that works?

    do i have to be in dfu mode to restore my ipod?

    yes, let your ipod die, then plug it in to your cmputer and it should reboot on its own (if not just use the power button on top)

    Yes, you can restore it to factory settings through itunes
