    OK,
    I was editing my homescreen on my iPod Touch(2G) and my battery died.... I was at a friends house and I was pretty tired so I decided to be stupid and keep trying to turn my iPod off til it went completely dead. I then began putting it into DFU mode(or so i think) and now it is 100% unresponsive. My computer doesn't recognize it; it won't charge; nothing. I have tried putting it into DFU mode again but nothing works. I called Apple and the dude knew less things to try than I do. All he did was take me through apple.com's troubleshooting guide. If anyone has anything else for me to try, it would be GREATLY appreciated. Worst case scenario, i will have to send it in to Apple for repair......it is jailbroken

    You are not bricked. Put it into DFU mode by holding the Power and Home button for approximatley 10 seconds, then release the power button and keep holding the home button for another 8 seconds. Then click restore in iTunes. You are "unbricked"

    I'd leave it plugged in for about an hour, and then after that, try holding the Power+Home buttons, to force reboot it.
    If that doesn't work, try DFUing again after you get a little power into it.

    Even though it doesn't show, it should still be charging when it's plugged in. Leave it for about an hour an try to turn it on by holding home and power for 10 seconds.

    Why does everybody say it's bricked? There's no way in hell it's bricked...

    Just plug it in and let it charge for a bit.

    Did you manually delete any crucial system files?
    If you haven't then it's not bricked.

    Even if he did DFU mode would still be possible
