    Okay, this is the problem.
    I have a Jailbroken iPod touch on the 2.2.1 firmware, I wanted to delete all my Apps, Music and Videos so I went into Settings and I went to the area where you reset the iPod, the iPod went through the process then it restarted, there was a loading sign on the screen, it was like that for about 15 minutes then it went to a pure white screen for about a second, restarted and started the loading again, it's been on a continuous loop for hours.
    Does anyone know what happened/know a solution for this?

    Thanks, Shaun.
    Edit: Forgot to mention it wont show up on iTunes.

    Well since you deleated everything I guess you don't mind doing a restore.
    Try DFU restore.

    I forgot to say it doesn't connect to iTunes, or my computer.

    This same thing happened to me, I figured by doing a reset, it would clear out my data, but it turns out that by doing a reset on jailbroken firmware, you delete some core jailbreak data.

    Anyways, You can always put your iPod into DFU Mode.

    Plug it into your computer (regardless of if your computer recognizes it)
    Hold the home and power button until your iPod exits the spinning wheel screen, and goes black.
    After your screen goes black, keep holding home and power for about another second.
    Release the power button, but keep holding the home button until your computer beeps.

    Once your computer beeps, iTunes should recognize it, and you can do a restore.
