    just got an ipod touch 2g. i am completely new to the ipod touch. didn't really get a chance to use it very much.

    i know this is supposed to be an introduction but i'm not sure i can contribute much to this place except my problem. so i guess i'll get right down to it.

    i bought it jailbroken off of amazon. when i decided i didn't want it like that since itunes wasn't recognizing it nor was my computer as a hard drive,

    i thought the best solution would be to go into the settings menu and restore general settings by erasing all data and settings. now all i keep getting is the apple logo and a spinning circle.

    occasionally it flickers and resets itself only to repeat the cycle again.

    but this is supposed to be an introduction so, erase this message if you want and i'll move it somewhere else. i was looking forward to using the breaking news app since i am a news junkie and studying to be a journalist.

    keeping up with news on a desktop pc doesn't cut it for me. it's one of the main reasons i wanted an ipod touch and so i got one since i have verizon.

    anyway, is this thing completely cashed or what? i am not even sure if i have a warranty, or, if by amazon.com terms i can still get a refund.

    if anyone can fix this or tell me i have a chance of getting my money back please let me know thanks!

    Icant remember what it's called but the thing your talking about seems you've got a messed iboot just go into dfu mode and hold shift and click restore in iTunes. Dfu is hold the power (top button) and the home button (hardware button with square) for 10 seconds then the home button until it pops up in iTunes. Your screen should be black, that's ok. Now go to felixbruns.de and download you're current firmware. Then go to iTunes and hold shift and click on restore.

    Also the only way to brick a iPod is by phissicly dammaging it

    Put your iPod touch into DFU Mode and restore it, That should work.

    i just checked, my ipod still has a warranty. going in tomorrow to the apple store and if that doesn't work going to demand my money back from amazon. and IF I DON'T, then i'll come back here.
