I have an iPod Touch 2g, ios 3.1 I think, and jailbroken. Anyway, my charger got chewed in half, and as we don't have much money I had my husband just repair the cord. Well, the cord broke again, so he tried again. My iPod was dead before that and would not start up (had the red battery with the really low bar icon). Now after plugging it in to the newly modified plug it started turning on, but never got off of the apple screen. It keeps powering off every so often and then powering back on, crashing again, so on and so on. It never gets past the apple screen in any of this. I've tried the restart holding down both fingers, etc, and that rebooted it, but then again, apple screen, flash, apple screen... etc. Could this be related to the rigged cord? Does anybody have a fix that doesn't involve itunes, etc? As I don't have a working cord, I guess I should just buy a new one. Also, if anybody has tips that will help me for when I have the new cord, I guess I could just keep them for reference (if none of the other fixes work). Also, has anybody else had this happen? It's been doing this for hours now. Is it a total brick now? God I hope not... I just hope I can get it to at least turn off! Thanks for any help.
