My iPod touch 1G maybe bricked Please Register or Log in to view images Last Tuesday I installed an update for Mobile Substrate and Cydia asked me to restart the device. I tapped on the field which said restart and my iPod's screen instantly shut down. Then the Apple logo (of Death, ha) appeared only to vanish after about 10 seconds. Reminded me of the ALOD-Mobile-Watchdog-mess a lot of us experienced on FW 2.0 - but this is different: 1. Apple logo disappears faster (10 seconds) 2. Both iTunes and TouchCopy don not detect the device being connected to the PC 3. I tried iTunes' diagnostic routines in order to test USB connection: As far as iTunes is concerned my iPod does no longer exist Please Register or Log in to view images I cannot put it into DFU (or even Recovery) mode either - my Home-Button is broken Please Register or Log in to view images Is their any chance of putting an iPod into DFU without using the manual way of pressing buttons? Is their a software that could initiate DFU via USB?
