    Hello all! How is everyone? I am so frustrated and mad at my 13 year old son. I bought him Ipod touch 2nd gen for Christmas, after being begged forever for it, and now he has done something to it! He calls it Jailbreak, but now his IPOD wont even turn on. NOTHING it is DEAD>>>>>just like he will be if we can't fix this thing!!! LOL
    Anyhows we have tried to put this thing into DFU mode since last night and still NOTHING! 5 hours straight last night and 2 hours today! I hear the sound that you are supposed to listen for, but I never get a white screen!
    Is this hopeless? I work VERY hard for my money and am quite upset at my son for ruining his ipod like this! For sure he will be without one if we can't fix this!
    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Don't worry about the white screen. Just make sure it is in DFU mode (instructions) and open iTunes and click restore.

    DFU mode is when you hear both of the chimes?

    it doesn't need to be white it can also be black just plug ipod into computer after putting it into DFU mode and click restore in iTunes or Shift click restore if that doesn't work and choose the latest official ipsw and punish your son for being such a nublet

    DFU
    hold home and power for 10 mississpis (hold the only two buttons)
    Then release the power button(top button) and hold home for about 10 mississpis

    ITUNES does not recognize his IPOD at all.

    Ok hold the power button and home at the same time and hold for 8 seconds let go of power and count to seven your ipod should be in dfu and then shift restore.Works for me every time.
