    K, so it all started of with my installer not loading (it went to a white screen and staying there). SO i found a tutorial on this site that said to ssh into the ipod and delete the installer.app file then to do the ZIphone jailbreaker.I did that then when it got to one part in the jailbreaker and it said if it was taking more than 3 minutes i should stop the process so i did then turned on my ipod and it went to the apple sign. After that it went to a black screen then so writing starting going down the screen and then its get to some writing saying BSD root: md0, major 2 minor 2 and it keeps repeating that.

    Is it bricked and if so what do i Do?

    Hold the power button and home button 2getha for 10seconds (count it)
    whilst plugged into itunes

    once the screen goes blank release the power button but STAY holding the home button

    this will but it into recoverymode

    now u can restore with itunes

    It's not bricked. Kick it into DFU mode by stuartw's method or with Ziphone and restore in iTunes.

    Yeah, once in restore mode, you have to restore (hence the name "restore mode").
