    For some reason I can't sync my ipod to itunes because the error I get is related to "Apple Mobile Device"

    The error is: "This iPod cannot be used because the "Apple Mobile Device service is not started." So ummm does anyone else have this problem too?

    My ipod is 8GB 2g and it is jailbroken with 4.0.1 firmware.

    Reinstall or launch Apple Mobile Device Service.

    I reinstalled and I still had the same problem. How do I launch the Apple Mobile Device Service?

    Nvm I fixed it by restarting the Apple Mobile Device Service.

    Uninstall iTunes + quicktime completely. Reinstall iTunes + quicktime by redownloading the installer file. Sometimes just a reinstall doesn't work. You have to uninstall first (get's rid of everything, and tells the installer to do a fresh install vs just an update).

    If this doesn't help, let me know. Good luck
