    Can you enter DFU mode? If so, then you just need to redo the jailbreak procedure, or do a restore from iTunes if you want it the way it was before.

    okay i figured it out, if you used jfb392's guide then redo step 13, It brings back the JB with the ipod synced :]

    I had exactly the same problem , and it was all down to the DFU timing ..... top tip , use the windows clock to time (double click on time in bottom right hand corner of the task bar)... you'll get there

    We should make a FAQ page with errors/bugs/things like this, many people have this issue... When I got some time I will handle these things

    Have this every time

    Havn't used fontswap, I doubt that can actually brick ipod.

    Maybe cause I tried to restore my back up also is what causes this.
    (or may cause I don't do the audible in a stable manner, guess I'm spastic!}

    How i do it.
    The first attempt at dfu mode almost always, dings usb off then dings in as
    an unrecognized device. (A balloon pops up on XP saying unrecognized device)

    I then go thru the dfu procedure again using the balloon as a visual guide.

    Hold both buttons down til balloon (unrecognized) disappears
    then release the power button, keep holding the other button till a balloon (recognized device) pops up.


    Anyhoo, I guess thats 3 ways for windows users to attempt dfu

    Audible
    Visual
    Timing

    Whatever works for u.
