    Hello there,
    I hope this is the right place to post.

    Anyway I have a 16 gig 2g itouch which i jail broke 4-5 months ago.
    Today I was on the internet and it died ( the battery was very low so I'm assuming the battery gave out )

    I went to plug into my computer and get USB Not Recognized.
    I tried switch cables and the same thing happened.
    I tried another computer and same thing happened.
    I also tried plugging it into a wall charger and into the xbox and nothing.
    My ipod does not turn on, nothing will recognize and start to charge it.

    I'm really worried it is permanently broken.
    If any would could help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
    - RatMLegend

    restore. Something went wrong while you were surfing the net and it died.

    happened to me a couple of times when i was downloading and surfing the net like usual

    reply if restoring helped

    Same thing happened to me a few months ago.
    Try holding the power button and the home button for about 10-15 seconds.
    If that doesn't work that just do a restore.

    oh right. sorry since windows doesn't recognize it.
    forgot to mention that for sure you gotta put it into DFU mode. and restore that way

    you do know how to put it into DFU right??

    seriously though.. windows will for sure recognize a DFU mode ipod touch..

    and then just restore via iTunes.

    Good luck

    First plug ur ipod into ur comp and do the following.

    hold the power button for 3 seconds. and without leaving it hold the home button as well. hold them both for the next 10 seconds and then leave the power/lock button. keep holding the home button till the next ten seconds otr till u hear a ding on ur pc.

    and btw if ur comp says device not recognized it means that ur ipod is perfectly fine cos it recognizes a device just not WHICH device

    btw this happenned to me too once
