    I tried to download cracked apps so I downloaded from this site called <removed> and I download a zip file with a file called instructions, the ipa, and a file called <removed>. The instructions said to ssh into the ipod and find root/System/Library/PrivateFrameWorks/<removed>.framework and find a file called MobileFramework and rename it to MobileFramework.bak and copy the <removed> to MobileFramework on my device and reboot the device. So I did that and used iReboot from Cydia and the ipod did not reboot and I used the dfu routine to boot it back up and it stays at the apple logo while constantly making the charging/syncing sound. When I unplug it the sound stops but the apple logo stays on until I turn it off by holding down the home and sleep button for a few seconds. And each time I use the DFU routine to boot it back up, it does the same thing. Is my iPod bricked? Was it iReboot or did I do something wrong in installing the <removed>? By now I really don't care if it is bricked because I've spent hours trying to reboot it and just want some closure as to why it happened. Thanks!

    1) talking about anything crack related is not allowed

    2) its better to install <removed> from cydia

    3) YOU DID NOT BRICK ANYTHING (BRICKING SOMETHING IS THE EQUIVALENT OF NOTHING RESPONDING, NOT ON THE DEVICE OR COMPUTER)

    4) from the looks of it you should probably do a restore

    have a good day.

    Oh! Sorry I'm new at posting. So do I have to restore with regular firmware or can I use custom firmware made with PwnTool?

    my guess is that your boot logo is in the custom firmware that you currently have on your computer, if i am right your best option is to get a proper boot logo, and create a custom ipsw using the new boot logo then rejailbreak

    Well jailbreaking's been going well for me so far. But wSYayo was right. It was stupid to try to install that. Live and learn I guess...
