    Hi, okay this is the deal

    my ipod touch 3g and jailbroken went into recovery mode randomly and i decided to restore it. It was running on 3.1.3 and it had to update to 4.0 in order to restore so i agreed with that. As it was preparing the ipod to upgrade, the apple icon came on the ipod with the bar underneath. But before it could fill up i got an error 28 and my ipod shut off. Is it possible that the jailbreak was taken off? and how can i fix it? i dont care if i lose the jailbreak now i just want my ipod to work

    Try turning it on DFU Mode. Updating automatically takes off jailbreak.

    DFU Mode:
    Turn on iPod Touch and hold power button.
    Hold home button when Apple logo pops up.
    When it reboots and shows the apple logo again, let go of the power button and continue holding home until your computer starts installing iPT Recovery Driver. Then restore in iTunes.
