    I currently own an iPod touch 4th gen 32GB.
    The problem is that it won't charge anymore.
    I was using the iPod until the battery died, and I charged it over night but noticed that it was still on the red battery screen with the thunder logo on it.
    Exactly like this:[​IMG]

    I've tried putting it into DFU mode and restoring it, but iTunes gives me an error every time during the restore .
    Tried two wall chargers (one official, one that I've used with an iPod video), but no luck.
    Tried different cables too.(I've been using the old cable that came with the iPod video, but also tried the new cable that came with the iPod touch.)

    Is there anyway to charge this iPod, so the iOS home menu would come up??

    By the way it is jailbroken with 4.3.(I don't remember the exact firmware.)

    The error number is 1602. I don't thinkit matters.
    I've tried reinstalling iTunes and all Apple related software several times.

    The problem is that it can't get out of the low battery state.
    May be if I could get a charger with more power, it might charge.
    I don't want to send it Apple since it would cost me quite amount of money.

    I personally think a DFU will fix the issue. However, you keep getting that error. This error is caused by your host file. To fix this, the easy way, follow the instructions bellow:
    Once you restore, see if the issue is fixed.

    I've tried using TinyUmbrella as you said, but have received the 1601, 1604 errors.
    I really want my iPod touch fixed; what can I do!?

    I have a question...the symbol under the battery, is it exactly like the picture where it's just the lightening bolt, or is it a power plug and a lightning bolt? Also, if you unplug it and let the screen go black, does it display the battery and symbol immediately after plugging it back in again? Just wondering, since I had a similar problem today.

    Yes, it is exactly like the picture I posted. It doesn't have the plug sign like some of the other iPods do.
    Yes for the second question also. If I plug it in, the iPod shows that red battery screen and if I unplug it, it does nothing like it ran out of battery completely.

    I should have charged my iPod before letting it die completely :(

    Ok, try putting it in Recovery Mode or DFU mode and leaving it for a while. I think it can still charge while in one/both of those modes.

    I've been letting leave in DFU mode for like 3 hours, but it doesn't seem like its charging.
    This is very frustrating.

    UPDATE:Alright it's been a full day on recovery mode sitting at iTunes. It doesn't seem like it's charging.
