    I wanted to get rid of all of my jailbreak data, and I didn't restore the iPod with iTunes because that didn't delete all the files. I went to Settings, General, and reset all data and content. I wanted to totally wipe it. It said it would take about 4 hours and I am going on 8. The loading bar finished, and now there is just an apple logo in the middle of the screen, like when you are booting up, but with a loading circle in it sometimes. It seems to go on a cycle. After a while, the screen flashes, and the screen goes back to just to the apple logo. Then, a loading circle thing appears on the Apple logo. Repeat. For 8 hours! I tried connecting to iTunes but it didn't recognize it, and my computer didn't recognize it either. I am now trying to drain the battery so it will stop but I still need help. I am on 3.1.3 but jailbroken and am trying to unjailbreak via onscreen reset, not iTunes restore.

    Ahh this happened to me, you need to DFU restore.

    How do you put it in DFU restore?

    I tried to put it into DFU restore but it just keeps coming back to the apple logo with the loading circle.

    Try this: Plug in the iPod, turn it off, now hold the home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen.
