No, it's not bricked, it's really screwed up, that's what it is. So i ran the program and did what it said. (below) Please Register or Log in to view images Notice in the picture above it says "Wait for the recovery logo to appear" well i got to that point. then it says to boot your jailbreak, so i entered the semi-rslite commands and my ipod went straight back to recovery mode. now that's not the only problem. now every time i try to restore with any firmware 2.2.1 on my comp, (Semi.ipsw, custom221.ipsw, or 221.ipsw) iTunes goes through the whole restore process along with the ipod etc etc. but when i boot it up again it goes right back to recovery mode. what happened and how can i fix this? thanks so much.
