    2G iPod touch
    Hey Guys. I did extensive research on this topic in multiple places, and no proposed solutions worked.

    So I had my 2G iPod Touch for about 1.5 years (warranty's run out). About 6 months ago, I neglected to charge it for 3 days, so naturally it ran out of batteries. But when I went the charge it again (wall and PC), it would not turn on. Just stays a blank black screen; no apple logo or anything. It's definitely charging though, the ipod gets noticibly warmer when plugged in.

    The computer and iTunes does not recognize the iPod. When I plug in and out the usb cord, there is no "connecting" or "disconnecting" sound. All programs (zipphone/irecovery) can't detect the iPod. I've tried putting it in DFU mode (10 seconds both buttons, and 10 seconds just home button) but to no avail.

    Is my iPod Touch broken for good?

    Other details:
    I have jailbroken it before, but was not jailbroken when it broke.
    No physical damage has been done to the iPod.
    Has been working for at least a year before it broke.

    I really hope you guys can help me out here! Thanks ahead of time!

    iDevices can get bricked, but only through hardware faults.

    It's so weird though, because it was literally just three days ago when it worked. I don't see how any hardware faults can occur from not charging it for three days. Also, it was kept in a safe place, so no physical damage could have been done to it.

    Should I just accept it as a hardware problem?

    Go to a third party repair place (Make sure they have some rep) and ask them to repair it.

    Probably hardware though.
