I just updated my touch to the newest firmware earlier today and when I tried to fire it up for the first time it would not come up whatsoever. I tried restoring it in every manner but that has proved to be unsuccessful, the screen is stuck on a very dim apple icon and the ipod is not recognized by itunes when I plug it in. My ipod is still under its one year warranty period, but what I was wondering is if anyone has had this similar problem and tried returning/exchanging it in store? Were they able to fix the iPod on site or did they have to ship it off? Also, would they let you upgrade to the 2nd generation for a little extra cashola? Thanks in advance.
