Read thru numerous treads with the same problem and yet to find one that works. Most say put into DFU or recovery. Problem, I can't get there still. Here's the scenario: I installed an app from the app store which required me to reboot the device. I did this, and on bootup my lockscreen froze. I let it sit, and it just stayed frozen. Unplugged it and everything, nothing happened. So I held the home/sleep button until it powered off. Now I am stuck at the Apple Logo. Disconnected from my computer, closed itunes, held the home/power button until it powered off and the apple logo came back, then kept holding home while connecting to the computer again, etc. Nothing. Tried this multiple times, nothing is working. iTunes is not recognizing an iPod connected to the computer, so I can't restore. I have 3.1.3 with Spirit on a 3rd gen touch. Any ideas? Thanks. EDIT: Problem possibly solved? What I did was just held the power button for about 2 minutes and suddenly *beep*, and it turned on like nothing happened. Very weird. Now my weather just says "null" but other than that, it is working (so far, it is verifying again). Any ideas as to what happened that just holding the power worked? I uninstalled what I recently installed, but just wondering what actually happened.
