Well you guys say that you can't brick your ipod.. well to be honest, I know my ipod isn't bricked. The initial problem was getting iTunes to recognize my ipod. Here's my problem: iTunes will not recognize my iPod My computer itself doesn't recognize it. I'm not too sure about this one, but my battery life was very unstable and when I thought it was 90%, it turned out to be about 10%. Again, i'm not too sure. When I try to shut down my iPod it doesn't stay shut down and immediately restarts itself again. When I try to restore(I'm sure I'm doing it correctly because it shows the usb and itunes icon), the iPod still doesn't get recognized. I think even when the battery fully died, it flashed me the little charge battery icon and I think it's supposed to only flash it once when I attempt to turn it on. Well it flashes on and off. My iPod cannot be turned off! I really don't know what to do. I've tried EVERYTHING. Right now I'm deleting all the data from my iPod to see if it's something there that f***ed it up, but I really doubt it. It's always attempting to go into Safe Mode as well. If anyone has any idea how to fix it, tell me! Oh yeah, I have a 1st gen ipod touch. It was jailbroken all fine for a while. I didn't try to re-jailbreak it at all. Just one day it stopped working. It could have dealt with me using different usbs or different computers. Also, no other computer recognizes my ipod.
