Alright, i've got some of the common problems, but muddled up to the point that their respective solutions don't seem to apply. Joyous day. Background: Ipod was working fine on 1.1.4; but I decided to downgrade because I missed having applications that actually worked. So I downgraded to 1.1.1, and all was merry for a few moments. I tried to jailbreak with ZiPhone, but it got stuck looping, so I took it's advice and tried the 'NVRAM Fix'. This did nothing. So now we get to the primary error; the infamous BSD error. Starting the ipod back up sees it looping at... Code: BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0 in addition, unplugging/replugging the USB cable results in a quick Code: IOIpodUSBDevuce::StartIpodStack can't start! Need configuration Now here, most suggest to hold sleep+home until it shuts off, and then continue holding home until it connects to itunes. However, after shutting off, continuing to hold home does nothing. Upon startup it immediately scrolls down to the BSD error again. I'm assuming that the normal fix doesn't work because it can't connect to ITunes, and I've heard tidbits about something called 'iPhuc' helping in this situation. So, can anyone give some concrete advice on what I should do at this point? It would be greatly appreciated.
