    my ipod touch has been jailbroken. while my friend was surfing the internet with touch, he installed a program and i don't know what he did. Now, my ipod touch thinks it is iphone and searching any gsm system.

    the screen writes " Waiting for activation, this may take some time. " and all menus,programs, games disabled. my pc, itunes can't recognize ipod. Force to restore isn't working. what can i do ?

    This is so true but this is also why you come to this forum not to get FLAME but for
    help !

    is there a way to turn the searching any gsm system search off.

    not sure but can you ftp your touch still ?
    can try to ftp and replace all folders with folders from some one that has a touch
    that is functioning correctly .

    if force restore doesn't work or connecting to itunes doesn't work what do you have to lose.
    if you decide to sell let me know would be interested .

    first have you tried this yet http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305797

    also did you read this at the bottom of post here that gives steps on how to force restore
    touch

    ****If iTunes comes up with an error you may want to try a. Uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes or b. restoring on a different computer.****

    give this a try again

    ftp may not work as you say eveything is wait on activation , but wont hurt to try will get info and post back.

    pretty much a NoOb myself but i know what is like to need help and not get it so bare with me

    EDIT: here this is a guide that will show you how to install and setup WINSCP which allows you to transfer
    files via wifi to your touch can give it a try , but like i said may or may not work

    guide http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9978

    best beat may be seeing if unistalling itunes and reinstalling itunes or trying another pc as suggested above will get touch restored

    WINSCP doesn't work because i don't know what ipod's IP is ( i said, all programs disabled and can't open ). I've tried 5-6 IPs but didn't work. I uninstalled itunes and reinstalled the new version but nothing changed

    there is one chance for restoring, it is trying another pc .. I will go and find new pc now and will try .. thanks for your help
