    Okay i installed bosstool on my 1.1.3 ipod touch and moved the fonts to clear up some space. afterwards i turned off the power now when i try to turn it on the boot apple screen and the little loading cirle is in front of the apple. What should i do. Edit: I just rebooted it and it still wont start its stuck on the apple screen but there is no loading circle now.

    Place your iPod touch into DFU mode and restore.

    (If you don't know how to place your iPod touch into DFU mode, click on my iPod touch Reference thread, the links in my signature. Then, on the iPod touch Reference, scroll to the 'How to place your iPod touch into DFU Mode' section.)

    DFU it. I don't know if you have done this but I will put a brief tutorial here for you.

    1) Hold the hold button down on your iPod
    2) While having the hold button pressed on your iPod, plug in your iPod to your computer, and keep holding the home button
    3) Keep holding the home button until you see the iTunes restore logo

    If this does not work, and your iPod is reconigized in iTunes by your computer, try using something like iLiberty to put it into DFU mode.
