    Ok, I have linux, open SuSE, and I have an iPod touch. My iPod was configurated in California, before my family got linux, and I had no problems. Anyways, I was at my friend's, WinPwning my iPod (freeboard Frunked my ipod), and Finally, after 3 1/2 hours, my iPod was at the custom startup screen I had made. So, I left it there for another hour, and had cake and dinner. When I got back, it was at the same screen. Later, I tried connecting to iTunes, force restoring (none works). I've been at the startup screen for 5 hours now, and i'm pretty sure it has a problem. Does anyone know if this is curable, and how? Please, no: Buy a new touch, or Get a Mac, be smart, or whatever. I'm poor, miserable, live on the streets, have nothing but me awesome iTouch. Imagine it that way...Oh, and with a computer.

    Basically, I need a way to fix my ipod with linux running.

    NEED HELP!

    Try using iLiberty or ZiPhone to kick it into DFU mode... also, let me point you into the direction of a thread on here that shows all the methods to force restore... I don't think you've read the post. NOTE: DO NOT USE ZIPHONE TO JAILBREAK, ONLY FOR SWITCHING IT BETWEEN MODES!... If that doesn't work, maybe you should try letting the battery die and try again... sometimes worked for me when I f... uhh, Messed, up my Touch with ZiPhone.

    Good luck

    Does anyone know if Ziphone or iLiberty can run on Linux through Wine?
    If so, I would use that to jailbreak it.

    Also, on the matter of putting your iPod in recovery mode, have you tried manually putting it into DFU mode yet?

    No swod, just turns on, and stays at custom boot logo. iLiberty doesn't run on Linux, people!
