Re: i tried doengradin it and i guess i messed up and now...
Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". Restore your ipod to either a backup of that ipod if there is one, or set up a new ipod. (setting up a new ipod will fix any previous problem) (hopefully)

How to Fix an iPod Touch Stuck in Recovery Mode With a Free Program An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues. Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit. The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version. Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods. In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore. When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process. You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.
Things You'll Need -Apple iTunes-USB cable
Instructions 1 Turn on your computer and open iTunes. If you are prompted to download any new iTunes updates, install the updates before proceeding. 2 Plug an iPod USB cable into your computer. Do not plug the other end into your iPod Touch yet. 3 Turn off your iPod Touch. If the iPod Touch is already shut down, skip this step. 4 Press and hold the Home button on your iPod Touch, and plug the other end of the USB cable into your iPod Touch. 5 Release the Home button after you see a white USB icon and the iTunes logo appear on your iPod Touch's screen. At this time, a pop-up should appear on your computer screen, explaining that the software has detected an iPod in Recovery Mode. 6 Click "OK." 7 Click on the iPod Touch from underneath the "Devices" heading on the left-hand side of your screen. 8 Click on the "Home" tab, and then click "Restore." Once it's restored, your iPod Touch goes out of Recovery Mode and you can start using it again. The restoration process takes a few minutes. Do not disconnect your iPod Touch until a prompt appears, letting you know the system restored successfully.
If it looks like this:. This looks like recovery mode.This usually happens to iPods on the first time they are set up or when something went bad. Connect the iPod/iPhone to your computer and run iTunes. iTunes should recognize the iPod is in recovery mode. Follow the steps iTunes gives you to restore your iPod back to working condition.
JUST SHUT IT OFF AND THEN CONNECT YOUR USB CABLE TO YOUR PC AND IPOD, THEN HOLD THE HOME AND POWER BUTTON UNTIL YOUR SEE I TUNES ICON WITH THE USB CONNECTOR RIGHT UNDER IT, WHEN YOU SEE IT LET GO THEN IT'LL SYNC INTO ITUNES AND JUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. RATE ME PLZ.
ok so i bricked my ipod accidentally and i figured a way to unbrick it(well i worked with mine) so you have your bricked ipod if you have anymeans of turning the screen on turn it off. so make sure your screen isblack (ipods off) before you do this then close itunes if its openconnect the ipod cable to your computer but not to the ipod. Then hold the home button and at the same time connect the ipod to your computer. Your ipod should show the connect to itunes symbol and then i tunes will automatically open
this should un-brick your ipod hopefully then you can update to anyfirmware but if you get an error just click restore not shift restore
give me feed back if it works or not thanks
it can only fix some ipods/iphones that only have software related issues but try it anyway!!
If you are the original owner of the iPod just connect it to the computer that you first synced the device with.
If you have found an iPod that had a lock code on it and have attempted to guess the passwords incorrectly too many times, I recommend you do the right thing and give it back to the original owner if you can.
If you cannot find the original owner I see no point in letting a good piece of technology go to waste so follow these instructions.
1) Turn off the iPod by holding down the power button (button on the top) and sliding the slider across to shut it off.
2) Find your Sync Cable and Plug it into the computer (just the computer, not the iPod yet)
3) Open iTunes
4) Hold down the home button. (Button at the bottom) While still holding down the button connect the sync cable to the iPod.
This should put the iPod into recovery mode. Once in recovery mode iTunes should pop up a message stating that it has detected an iPod in recovery mode and should allow you to restore it. This will delete all of the data/music on the iPod but will allow you to use it as if it were new.
Hold power and home to restart it (You might have to hold it for like 30 seconds) Hold the Home button down as soon as, and for as long as you see the little silver apple.
After about two minutes if it' still there release, and it'll enter recovery mode, and from there just plug it back in to the computer. You might have to repeat the process about 2 or 3 times, especially if it's jailbroken.
Also, try holding down the home button while plugging it into the computer. It'll try to bring the ipod into recovery mode as well.
What You have to do is hold the top button and the power button at same time for more than 25 second this will lead to recovery mode, on recovery mode you connect to your pc and then restore it , if is taking longer to get into recovery mode plug it in the power adapter and then put in recovery mode. once you have it restore it.
This happen to me, it got stuck on the apple screen and it was restarting on and off and i could connect it because it recognize it when it turn on and few a second later it turn off.
so just put it in recovery mode first and then restore it.
