    Hi , ive has my iPod touch 2.2.1 for while now, and last night I decided to change my boot Logos with a NOR only restore. I had verbose boot enabled on my iPod, I know that verbose boot disables full recovery (full 300mb .ipsw)
    but I tryed it anyways.

    I made the img3 file with a stock applelogo.s5l8720x.img3

    and i injected a .png with the correct dimensions and the transparent pixels ect. into a new img3 file

    i input the correct iv/key and it made the file.
    I then injected my custom img3 into the NOR only firmware

    Then I put my ipod in recovery mode and started restoring to the NOR flash firmware.

    BANG ! my ipod disconnects from my computer and starts booting in verbose mode. It coninued to do this fo 5min + , so killed itunes.

    My ipod was then a total brick, no power recovery mode, so I had to FULLY
    re-jailbreak my ipod and loose all my data.

    Has this happened to anybody else, because it is So annoying and Stressfull.

    Also is there a safer way to verbose boot without applying DHowetts dodgy patch to the firmware?

    Verbose mode disables ALL recovery mode restores. You cannot NOR or full restore. You must go into DFU mode and full restore to a customised firmware, sorry

    Oh, there may be a way to get into recovery mode restore through iRecovery, but I do not know the commands.

    Just another quick one, do you know how to get a custom boot logo and verbose boot, or is it possible, thanks

    Yes.. But the boot logo only shows for a few seconds and verbose starts.. Just alter the IMG3 for the boot logo AND add the verbose IMG3 for this to take effect.
