    Have you got it connected to the Internet? Wired rather than wireless. The PS3 needs to download critical updates from sony every now and again. If it can't find an Internet connection it may eventually stop booting. Seen it before on a friends PS3.

If you are able to SSH into your ipod you may be able to avoid the restore.

I know that you cant figure out your ipods IP but maybe you gave it a static IP or you can look it up in your router?
Well, in case you can SSH into it you can try going to
/private/var/root/Library/Preferences
then download com.apple.springboard.plist
most likely the file will contain some gibberish (so no plain text but rather strange characters). if so convert it with this page:
http://140.124.181.188/~khchung/cgi-bin/plutil.cgi
if not, good for you my p3 turns on but doesnt work and says it needs - biggrin.gif

now search for
<key>SBDeviceLockBlocked</key>
below that line there should be a line that says
<true/>
change this to
<false/>
reupload the file to your ipod (make sure the filename is com.apple.springboard.plist and it overwrites the old file on your ipod) and restart your ipod. I think your ipod should be enabled again.

regards

My Nikon Coolpix P3 camera is not accepting my 4GB, SDHC San disk card?


The P3 works with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to go with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Samsung yp-p3 firmware upgrade


Place the bin just inside the P3(not in any of the folders) and then disconnect from the computer and power it back on. It will check the firmware and turn on and off a time or two. When it's off and doesn't turn back on power it back on yourself and you're done.

You can check your FW version by going to settings>about on your P3.
