    this is what happened,,,

    i was updating one of my games thru installer, and all of a sudden, after it was done, the screen starts like flicking as in it kept on flashing from black to gray for a good minute, and i was like "ohhh great...." then it goes dark black..

    and i was like well maybe if i connect it to my ihome? i did, nothing happened... then to my computer,, NOTHING! not even itunes popped up... i cant turn it on,,, nothing happens i pressed the sleep/home button,, and nothing appears...so now im scared.. my wifi was on, and right now, my router says its still connected??
    i have warrenty on it thru best buy, but since its jailbroken, idk what they'll do?

    is it fixable? can i do something?

    One time my iPod randomly shut off, so it did a hard reset. (hold the sleep/home buttons till the apple logo appears, then release them.)

    That might not solve your problem; then you might want to get it in recovery mode.

    I hardly doubt the people at best buy would be smart enough to check if it was jailbroken. And if it wont turn on, then theres no way for them to check.

    Mine just did the same exact thing. I just installed bsd subsystem term fix then i opened screenshot and turned enabled off. I opened termvt100 and my screen went flicking black to gray like yours. I just used force restore and that worked for me.

    AGREED! If you seriously can't get it to restore, take it back....you'll have a shiny new ipod touch that works!!!

    And so what if they say its hacked, just try it at another store. Its not like theyre gonna run it over with a truck right there cause its hacked.
