    yea I installed a mac spoofer and then modified the script so the break command was replaced with reboot, and right as I hit reboot I realized that the script was more than likely going to run at reboot and unfortunately I was right, now my iPod is stuck in a reboot cycle, I don't suppose anyone knows a way to delete the script it’s running via ssh somehow so I don’t have to restore cause I haven’t backed up in a while and my laptop recently crashed and I have to get the file out of my backups and use a slow computer to restore my iPod. Help would be appreciated, and yes I know, I’m a moron.

    Dude I had the same thing... happened different but I was tinkering like you.. but haven't found a solution cause it won't restore once its in Dfu mode... Keep getting error code 9. You might have to restore but not positive on that. Maybe there's a way you can ssh into it or whats the program called... File commander? with tpot.

    ya dude put it into dfu mode then if you get a error code your in the same vote as me lol. "But I'll keep testing this theory of unbrickable Ipod touch" And if the thing can't even restore then Apple won't be able as well. They pretty much do the same things that you do which is pretty sad. Only be sure they can't restore it cause sometimes these damm things restore in the oddest circumstances.

    I did say that already so I assume he doesn't. And if he doesn't know what that is then that is a hopeless cause.

    Not for me it won't restore in Dfu mode... And I've tried all of apples methods. I'm also trying Irevovery but every time i install Usblib all my usb, audio and about everything else is disabled.

    In this case dfu mode isn't full proof. But we'll see Stunts has success.
