    I've restored it twice yet it won't go past the logo. I'm really sad to see all of my stuff disappear and now I can't even unbrick my ipod!

    I really don't see what I can do. It's the spinning wheel of death that beeps every 5 seconds.

    I doubt iLiberty or Ziphone could detect the iPod if it reboots every 5 seconds, with the SWoD.

    He will have to enter DFU mode manually. There are tutorials on how to do it, and Youtube videos as well. Check those out if you don't get my instructions:

    -Plug iPod into computer, have iTunes ready and opened.
    -Hold down the Power button and Sleep button until the iPod powers off.
    -After about a second after the iPod powers off, release the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button.
    -Wait about 15 seconds, until the iPod is detected by iTunes as an iPod in recovery mode.
    -Restore.

    Ok so even though I previously restored my ipod twice through recovery mode before I think my problem was I had to ditch the backup(can't believe I didn't think of this!). Obviously it had the backup of the bad version so now it works.

    It seems ok now but I'm not sure if it'll stop working again later. Thanks guys!
