    alright so i know im an idiot but heres what happend

    so i had my 2g ipod touch jailbroken and then i tryed to restore the original boot image using LogoMe, (i changed the boot image when i orginally jailbroke it) so i did this, and i flashed my ipod and it turned off, i guess i didnt have redsnow installed and now it does not work AT ALL

    i cant turn it on or anything,
    i have windows vista, and when i plug my ipod in the computer it says USB Device not reconized, and it dosent even show up in iTunes,

    my ipod never loads up, it just stays at a black screen..
    idk what to do

    please help?

    Same thing happened to me.

    Plug it into your computer.
    Hold down the home & power button for 12 seconds.
    Release the power button and keep holding home until you hear a beep on your computer.
    Release all buttons. iTunes should detect it. Press Restore.

    Now jailbreak with redsn0w 0.3, or its probably going to give you 3.0 firmware, so jailbreak with redsn0w 0.7.1, or 8.0 (but dont check Install Icy)

    Use iFunBox and get them out.
    But they should be saved in iTunes.
