I have a 2nd G with 2.2.1 32GB. the problem started just today, as soon as I connect it via USB the iPod reboot itself and display the apple logo, then it goes in a loop (the same as everybody describes). I already went through the reset process more then once.Plus I got a new USB connector interface and a new wall charger to eliminate the possibility of defective cable. The main question is: is it a port issue? firmware issue? And if it's the a bin issue, how could I connect my iTouch to upgrade it if there's a new firmware? Possible port interface issue? Now I can't charge it, but I browse around w/out any issues I went through the 5sec power - 10sec home+power and 10-30sec home rule, I even restarted the apple services in my PC. I never jailbreak it, so there' no way to re-jailbreak it. And btw, I already tried to restore it manually, I can't do it through iTunes, because as soon as I plug any cable interface ( USB or Wall charger) it does turn off and start a reboot loop, not passing the apple logo. I tried to connect it through different PC and OS, I even restarted apple services through the event managers, no good. After reading http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62950 by Winterboard, I reset all settings and data ( thankfully I still had some juice in it). Finally, my iTouch is doing the loop when connecting to any interface (USB or W-charger) - white screen - apple logo - connecting to iTunes, then white screen. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
