AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! i just spent ALL MORNING downgrading, jailbreaking, upgrading, installing software on my iPod and i go to the god damn SMB prefs to change my theme to leopard and i get a spinning gear that keeps on spinning. And it kept spinning. I restarded. There is no spinning gear, just the apple the shows up forever without actually booting up!!!!!! My computer recognizes the iPoT and does not throw it into restore mode. THERE MUST BE A QUICK FIX. I AM SO SICK OF THIS F***ING PROCESS. **I CAN SYNC MY IPOD. ALL I CAN SEE IS AN APPLE THOUGH... any REAL suggestions? the last thing i want to do is this process again. Yes, this means I am NOT looking to restore, but rather some way to get past this. Restoring is the last thing I want to do right now, even though I may have to.
