    I went to jailbreak my ipod touch using ziphone. I accidentally stopped it in the middle of it and now when i turn it on all it does is have the apple icon come up, and then it starts to script like crazy saying:
    the first menu thats shows says the
    I/o Version
    Hardware Version
    Mac Address
    with tons of other stuff
    the second menu says singleuser boot -- fsck not done
    root devise is mounted read-only
    and it goes on

    I have tried to restore it by turning it off holding the home screen plugging it in and all that stuff and it wont restore my computer doesn't notice it. I have tried all the restores i could find on the net. Idk what to do.

    other things i noticed the power off slider never shows up so i just let it turn off itself idk if that helps

    Comp Info:
    Mac OSX
    Connecting ipod through firewire port

    Does ziPhone recognize it, and if so boot it in normal mode. (Under the "Mode" pull down Menu)

    if the iPod supported FireWire and USB it would pwn. The only problem is that it has already been pwn'd.

    FireWire? I think that might be the problem. Jamming a USB conector into a FireWire port usualy ends not so good.

    Rectangle into square= not so good

    - How to be successful at asking questions on ifans.com -

    1: Did you remember to have the title clearly state your problem, and not type in all caps?
    eg, do NOT do this: "HELP, I HAVE A PROBLEM W/ MY ITOUCH!!!!!11"

    2: Did you use readable, organized English in the first post?
    eg, do NOT do this: "my itouch b havin prblms. need 1 of u guyz to help me fixxx it up yo. the installer aint workin got 1.1.1 on it!!!! lolololol

    "

    3: Did you post sufficient information about your personal issue for others to "diagnose" why it isn't working and suggest something besides a random guess?
    eg, do NOT do this: "my youtube isn't working, I upgraded to 1.1.4 and please help me"

    4: Make sure it is the correct forum (and subforum).
    eg, do NOT do this: "my iphone's phone app is screwed up....."

    5: Did you remember to search to see if you can find the solution yourself, and not make several topics for the same thin?
    eg, do NOT do this: "How do you jailbreak version 1.1.1? This is like my 5th topic on this and no one is answering. I've waited a whole 7 minutes now."

    6: Now it is safe to make a new topic asking a question.
