    Well... I was just listening to some music, looking at a note I had made, accidental closed the notes app, so tapped the notes app on the springboard again right after, then my iPod decided to just crash

    Now it isn't starting up; just sitting there on the apple logo for an endless amount of time.
    I did a hard reboot (I think that's what it's called...), and tried to put it into restore mode, but that simply wouldn't work... Just went to the apple logo and stayed there.
    I've now got it in DFU mode, and am downloading the firmware to do a restore...

    I just wanted to check on here to see if this is in fact what I should do... I'd prefer not have to transfer all my music/apps back onto it, rejailbreak, and download all cydia apps/themes again if at all possible.

    If you have already entered DFU mode, i'm afraid a restore is your only option...at least iTunes should transfer all your music/apps across for you afterwards. You will need to re-jailbreak though.

    Yeah... I've already restored now :\ Jailbroke it immediately after, then restored from a backup. Syncing all my apps/music right now, takes forever for all my music to transfer over though!

    And, what do you mean by, "If you have already entered DFU mode, i'm afraid a restore is your only option"?
    If you enter DFU mode, you can't come out of it? :S

    Yup, once you are in DFU mode their is no way to boot the device back to the OS without a restore...even if your iPod was working.

    I thought you could use iReb for that.

    EDIT: Nevermind apparently the hard reboot works. (post didn't get in fast enough... Browser issues)

    What does iReb do then?

    I think you guys may be confusing DFU and Restore modes...I'm pretty sure you can't get out of DFU without restoring.

    iReb is definitely only for Restore mode.
