    For those of you who insist that you have a BRICKED iPod Touch...

    I want you to take it, and bash yourself in the head 1,000 times until you learn to Search and Listen to people who try to help you.


    Here is a REALLY easy way to do it.

    0. PREP - If you haven't already done so, download the firmware.

    http://wiki.iphonegameover.com/Firmware_download
    http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/

    1. Remove the iPod Touch (NOT iTOUCH. That is a Generic bootleg from China I think) from the Plug.

    2. Hold POWER (At the Top) and HOME (At the Bottom) until it turns off.

    3. Open iTunes.

    4. Hold HOME (At the Bottom) and then Re-Plug in the iPod Touch. STILL HOLDING HOME. DO NOT LET GO.

    5. On your iPod Touch screen you should see the iTunes Symbol at the top and a Plug at the bottom.

    6. Now look at your Computer screen.

    7. iTunes should now have detected an iPod Touch in Restore mode.

    8. Restoring-
    (WINDOWS USERS) Hold SHIFT and click Restore and select your 1.1.3 Firmware.
    (MAC OS X USERS) Hold ALT/OPTION and click Restore and select your 1.1.3 Firmware.

    9. DO NOT EVER POST SAYING YOU CANNOT RESTORE OR YOU HAVE A BRICKED iPOD TOUCH.

    10. Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight.

    11. Also, before you post that you have problems....

    gotta say I like the graphic, but u need to have a link to autodown so that people can automatically downgrade their DFU interface controller and recover to 1.1.1 or whatever.
    just put a link to this thread that got treated like the ugly red headed step child:

    Lol I was just about to write a post exactly like this. I am getting fed up with the people complaining about a bricked touch... The 1st thing you need to learn when it comes to these things is, it is extremely hard to brick them to the point where there is absolutely no way to fix them using restoring, SSH, or some command line work at the worst...that is unless you actually take a brick to your ipot, and in your blind fury you crush it to pieces. At that point there isn't much even Apple can do...
