    There was already a thread concerning this, but there was no answer. When I try to boot my iPod Touch (using the redsnow boot thing), my ipod gets stuck at the Apple logo and stays there for about 5 minutes and turns off. I really don't want to re jailbreak it and erase all my stuff (over 18 GB of music!), so how can I fix this?

    BTW, this has happened before, but fixed itself. However, it has been doing this for about a day.

    Suck it up, restoring is the only way to fix it.

    if the 18 gigs of music is in itunes then you'll still have it
    (if you didn't)if in boss prefs you had ssh on reboot checked there may be a chance that you can ssh the music back to your comp and re-ssh on your restored ipod

    Ok. Thanks anyways :/

    Another slight problem. This is my first time restoring FROM a jailbreak, so how do I do it? I put the ipod in DFU mode and then tried to restore using the custom/jailbroken firmware. But an error occurs in iTunes and it fails. I feel stupid

    You'll have to restore to the original firmware, not custom, and do the jailbreak process again.

    So can I restore to original firmware and then restore to custom? Or do I have to do the ENTIRE process again?

    Well, I just did the Step right before you select your Custom FirmWare, and then Restored it with the Custom FW.

    I never restored back to the normal FirmWare, and nothing went wrong with mine.

    You have to put your ipod in DFU then do

    iRecovery.exe -f originalibssfile.dfu
    iRecovery.exe -s
    Restore custom firmware
    Use a program such as Quickboot to boot.

    I have one. Using jailbreak, you can access the filesystem (duh) and you can remove the checks and let is boot for an unlimited period. The iPod has a timeout that causes it to ALoD after exactly 5 minutes. I don't know exactly how this works, especially on a 2G, but its something right?
