    Hi, i've used this site before to point me to how to jailbreak, how to put my ipod in DFU mode, but now i come with a real problem. So here's how it went:

    I bought my iTouch 2g BRAND NEW in February. It worked great but was lacking versatility so I jailbroke it about 3 weeks ago with QuickFreedom. That worked great. I've been using it jailbroken very nicely since then. Then yesterday, I was on Cydia and I downloaded an app called iHeroes that lets you download heroes episodes. I couldn't quite get it to work properly and I was on youtube trying to figure it out when all of a sudden, my screen turns black and it has that spinning loading circle thing. Then the entire thing turns black. I thought it might have been battery or something of that sort so I charge it overnight. This morning it still didn't work. I've tried putting it in restore mode, i've tried putting it in DFU mode, I turned on iTunes and it doesn't show up at all. iPhoneBrowser doesn't recognize it, and in My Computer it doesn't show up at all (usually it says it is a camera).

    I want to know if anyone had this problem before and whether or not it's fixable.

    Please help me!

    Don't worry dude. Open iTunes, now while holding down the Home button on your iPod plug it into the USB. Keep holding Home until iTunes sees it. Now you can restore and make it better.

    Do DFU mode right

    Shift-click restore

    You can always do DFU as it is in hardware, not software of the ipod.

    DFU Restore. It's not bricked. It can't be bricked. End of story.

    Just use a timer.

    Make sure its off.
    Hold Power for 3 seconds
    Now hold home with power for 10 seconds
    Now let go of power and hold home for 30 seconds or until you here a chime on your computer
