*********mods Please Delete*********** ok so i bricked my ipod accidentally and i figured a way to unbrick it (well i worked with mine) so you have your bricked ipod if you have any means of turning the screen on turn it off. so make sure your screen is black (ipods off) before you do this then close itunes if its open connect the ipod cable to your computer but not to the ipod. Then hold the home button and at the same time connect the ipod to your computer. Your ipod should show the connect to itunes symbol and then i tunes will automatically open this should un-brick your ipod hopefully then you can update to any firmware but if you get an error just click restore not shift restore give me feed back if it works or not thanks it can only fix some ipods/iphones that only have software related issues but try it anyway!!
