    My ipod touch is jailbroken, firmware is 2.1. I did the reset everything and delete everything on it from the settings menu on the touch and it took like two hours but it eventually finished but now it wont get past the pineapple screen and continuously restarts

    also, i have tried the hard reset where you hold the home button for 6 seconds and then the sleep button for 10 seconds and it restarts but goes back into the restart loop.
    edit: mac will not recognize the ipod

    dude! hook it up to i-tunes and click "restore" that totally deletes all the info on the ipod, then jailbreak it again.

    what happened is called the SWOD (spinning wheel of death) To fix the iPod, put it into DFU mode

    DFU mode:

    Turn on the iPod (it'll be in a boot cycle)
    hold the power and home button 'till it shuts off
    release the power button and keep on the home button 'till ya'll mac recognizes the iPod
    restore in iTunes
    Rejailbreak

    **OR**

    Turn on the iPod
    connect to SSH (if installed)
    connect to /Applications and rename it to /Applications2, yes, the folder
    When (if) the iPod boots, ya'l can reconnect to SSH and rerename (redundant? lol) /Applications2 back to /Applications

    Good Luck =]

    PS, if ya'll're usin' the new Macbooks, ya'll're screwed, use another computer, the new Macs DO NOT recognize iPods in DFU mode =\

    Glad to hear that you fixed it

    Even though Id say to keep restoring as a last resort, when you get a SWOD the only option is to DFU restore

    Didn't really matter anyways in the end I guess though, since you was going to need to restore before you sold it anyways
