    hey,
    im new here and been looking in to jailbreak my ipod touch, the problem is i tryed updateing my pod to 2.2 last night though itunes and it seems to have sort of bricked my pod, as in all it will show is a screen that shows the itunes logo and the USB plug with an arrow between the two, it wont do any thing else and my PC/itunes wont see that its there.

    so far ive tryed to restore and to try replace the software with winpwn, but to no luck

    does any one have any tips for me in sorting this out

    thanks for any help.

    Put it into DFU mode and restore.

    You can't use winpwn. You need QuickPwn. Google search it..

    Turn on your iPod
    Hold the power and home buttons down (the iPod will power off after 10 seconds, but keep holding those buttons down)
    After the iPod powers off, release the power button (but keep holding the home button down)
    After a couple more seconds, you should hear that magical “ding dong” that means the iPod is coming back alive, and that Windows has detected it. You may even see a little “New hardware” popup in Windows. It is now safe to release the home button, and your iPod is in DFU mode.
    Now iTunes will see it as a DFU’ed iPod and should ask you to automatically restore its firmware.
    iTunes has to download the new firmware, and it takes a while, so go make a sandwich.

    Just a heads up, you can't brick an iPod Touch.
