    Well, I while back I jailbroke my ipod t 2g, worked great, I also made sure to keep juice in the battery. Until the other day ( now its dead ). on top of that my pc hd crashed, and I lost all the utilities i used to jailbreak it, I tried a few unofficialsn0w tools to try and boot it, but I can't even get a grey screen, I have had it in the power usb adapter for the wall for a few hours now. and i,m not sure if its getting any power.

    any suggestions?

    Put it in DFU mode and then try restoring it. Also, try blackra1n or redsn0w 0.8 to jailbreak it.

    well I have itunes open, I have done the hold home/sleep 10 sec release, correctly, the only response my pc makes is after 10 seconds is "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it" etc etc...

    itunes doesnt prompt any message what so ever.

    has anyone else bricked there ipod touch 2g, ( teathered ) after the battery completely going dead.

    I am using the ipod usb cord, with the ac adapter into it, ( 2 parts ) is this as good as the usb ac adapter that is just one piece? ( is this causing it not get a charge ? )

    is there any other utilities that could detect and or restore?

    Try using another computer to put it into DFU mode.

    Just iTunes... You could try resetting it with iRecovery, but I don't think that'll work.
