Your ipod can go into paper weight or brick mode after dropping it or exposing it to moisture ie. water. Look down the headphone jack with a flash light and see if the little rectangular water sensor is white or pink. White means that your good and pink means the water sensor has been triggered and the unit has been exposed to excessive moisture. Here's the kicker- Apple's 1 year warranty does not cover water damage so your fu.kd. But if your still within your year warranty or you got an extended warranty, then just take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out if the water sensor is not pink.

If your iPod Touch is bricked, bring up iTunes, but do not hook up the USB cable and iPod to the computer. After iTunes is up and running, plug in the cable and then plug in the iPod. It is imperative that the process goes in this order. Odds are, iTunes will not recognize your iPod. Don't panic. This is normal. Simultaneously hold down the sleep button (the button on the top left of the Touch) and the menu button (the "home" button). Hold these buttons down until iTunes recognizes your iPod. Your iPod touch should now be "unbricked."

My 2nd Gen Ipod Touch is giving me code 20 when I am trying to downgrade the firmware. I have the white screen of death, and I have found a lot of troubleshooting saying that it was the 4.0 firmware update...

Hi Amber,
I own an iPod touch 3g, and iPhone 4. (just FYI)
As per Apple's technology, "firmwares" can only be upgraded and can never be downgraded.
I don't know whether it's legal to post here, but I'll take chance. You can use TinyUmbrella (in future) to backup SHSH blobs, so that you can downgrade. If you want to know more about this, then let me know.
Coming to the current issue of White Screen of Death, try pressing both Home and Lock button for sometime (10+ seconds) and see whether you get any result on the screen. You should see the Apple logo, and it should boot normally. I've bricked and unbricked my devices a lot of times.
Just remember that you can NEVER brick your device permanently, so don't panic.
If you need any more assistance, then let me know.

Well, on the iTouch, There are many features, Depending on the firmware. If its 3.0, 4.0, 3.1.2, 3.1.3 or greater, you can copy, cut or paste. On any iPod running lower firmware versions can save pictures from the web, check e-mail, change wallpaper, save bookmarks. If you jailbreak it, Meaning, it can run 3rd party apps like snes4iphone, and so on. Download spirit to the jailbreak. This all i know from my iPod 2G.

My iPod Touch has an unresponsive touch screen.

Try restoring it. Instructions are in the restore section of your iPod. If you restore it, don't update the iPod, because it seems that the update made your iPod unresponsive. It should be fine then. Good Luck!
