    My friend came up to me, saying that he couldn't turn on his iPod. I said 'No big deal, I can fix it'

    However, when i came home and tried to boot it using redtool, it would show the apple logo, and itunes would detect it, as it normally would. Being able to sync and everything. However, the iPod Touch won't boot. It just remains at the apple logo.

    How do i fix this without restoring?

    can you some how manually reboot the ipod and get it into dfu and try the booting the ipod again with the tethered jailbreak. Does your friend have tethered or semi tethered?

    Now that doesnt make sense. Sounds like a restore is needed.

    Yeah, he might have done something to mess it up, or you're not doing something right. Try to use a different booter or something.

    Try booting it manually command by command (ex on a Mac, send !iBSS221.dfu and so on through Terminal) and see if it does the same thing. You probably need a restore.
