    Guys yesterday my brother came from USA with this big thing called iTouch and i was so stupid that i downloaded a snes rom or something like that and now the home screen is black with some grey lines in the bottom and i cant touch anything...
    Please i really need to know how to fix this, im fcking desperate, if he knows hes gonna kill me...

    Things that didnt work: Turning off
    connecting to computer

    I turn it on and the apple icon appears, then it goes to "home" but the screen is 90% black with some lines in grey in the bottom...

    Any solution to this?

    Gee, you get an answer & then you question it? It's already broke, you can't screw it up further trying this answer - just do it!

    You can also do it with ZiPhone app. It's built in app, so why should it not work?
