    Hold the Home and Power until it turns off, keep holding until Apple logo comes back, keep holding for a few more seconds, and let go of power until the itunes and usb plug logo appears. Then hit restore and it should go to 2.0.2 stock. Then use quickpwn to pwn it.

    i already tried that like for a thousand times 2days of almost non stop troubleshooting.

    since this is my aunts office mate ipod im really worried.
    if i send it to apple will they accept it? since i still got the JB firmware and have the custom boot logo?

    Well don't worry, it can be fixed. So what happens when you hold the home and power buttons?

    Ok, so the ipod will go into the mode where the itunes and usb plug logo is showing? I will PM you a link and go there and get a clean copy of the firmware. Then get to recovery mode and use shift and click restore, then select the new firmware to install.
