    try to just let the battery run out all the way, then plug it in and turn it on. im curruntly doing this cuz my ipod froze...like the top button to turn the screen off works, but i cant turn it off and now its stuck on SB settings. when i press a part of the screen, it recognizes it and flashes, but does nothing else. im hoping a restart will help.

    did you try plugging in to itunes? wait, nvm, you said that. ummm. can you use SSH and ftp? i think there were some terminal commands that could get you out of it...
