Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation
Hi, I dropped my iPod, and the back cover thing fell off, I can't get it to go back on and trying to turn on my iPod leaves me with a dark-grey, (not the apple logo) screen, and it keeps beeping, progressively louder. Resetting doesn't work, and iTunes won't recognize it, please help!

Here is a way that solved the problem for me.
Downgrade the ipod touch to firmware 1.1.4. You have to put your ipod into DFU mode ('not recovery mode) and you have to have an itunes version that supports this old firmware. 7.5 oder 7.7 i think.
to load your own firmware you simply hold the shift-button while you push the restore button.
After you have firmware 1.1.4 on your ipod touch, download the jailbreaker "Ziphone". This programm has the option to fix the "no Wifi" problem. Look in the advanced options.
In my case, this was the only thing that solved the problem. I tried restoring it often but nothing worked.
After Ziphone fixed your Problem, you can update the Touch to the latest firmware. Wifi was still working, at least for me

Open Itunes on your computer. Unplug ipod.
Turn Ipod off (with sleep/wake and home button).
Hold home button down and simultaneously plug in the Ipod again.
Keep holding it (home) until the screen is an apple with a usb underneath it (Itunes sign).
Then in Itunes choose restore your Ipod.
If it's jailbroken, go through the Jailbreak process again.
