    hey just bought an ipod touch from a friend and he had it jailbroken, he also had all his personal info on it so I read somewhere else that if I go through the settings and do a full reset it will take eveything off but the custom firmware. Now I have the circle of death and I dont know where to start. I downloaded itunes and triend plugging it in but nothing. I am good when it comes to computers but I just need to know where to start with what program. any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Is the serial number MB or MC.. If it's MC then download blackra1n, connect your device to your PC via USB and run blackra1n to boot the iPod touch up (it's a tethered jailbreak)... Then you can do a full restore to remove jailbreak or restore factory settings from options to delete all personal data.

    If it's an MB model and you're stıuck with the circle of death then simply connect it to your PC and put into DFU mode and restore.
