    I was SSHing, and accidentally deleted the entire sbin folder in the / directory. My iPod starts, then the screen blanks out, and it keeps retarting. My Mac wont recognize my iPod, and I cant go into DFU or restore mode. I also cant SSH. In other words, I'm screwed. If there's a way to solve this, please help. I can't even restore!

    you need to manually go into DFU i think.

    there's definitely a way to fix it. keeping searching the board.

    I think that was the way to get your iPod replaced by apple.

    Now you get a nice new shiny one

    I have proved that the #1 way to brick your iPod is unbrickable!! Seriously, though, the manual DFU actually did work, and it restored without any errors. I was surprised! Sorry for creating this utterly retarded thread...
